What are your favorite types of stories?

Hello everyone! I am really curious to know what types of stories have you been enjoying the most. Do you like mostly the mafia ones? vampires? career/job related? college stories? werewolves? or something else… What do u prefer the most? (you can also say what you dislike)

Update: I didn’t except that most of you in a matter of barely 5 minutes would say that you don’t like the gang related ones. I thought they were the most loved because i can barely find stories these days that are not related to mafia and illegal stuff. :joy: (just for the record, i’m not saying that i dont like them, i do but not always, it all depends on the author)

firstly I enjoy a well written and directed stories, with charaters there have personality,

els I mostly like fantasy stories, no vampires or wherewolf. I want full on fantasy adventure.

I do like romance stories, but I dont like slice of life,(aka college, work, reality)

I like enimies to lovers trope, or forbidden romance,

lots of choices there matter,

I like adult charaters, I am myself 25, so it just feels wrong if the love interest is 16. or something like that.

That’s a really interesting uncommon point that I’ve never thought about, thank you for mentioning it!

Nope. Anything that romanticizes smth dangerous/toxic is a big NO for me, I despise them, especially when they’re in the romance genre.

Nah, they’re usually romanticizing being bitten by a vampire which is pretty gross + they’re all pretty similar & boring after u’ve read a few.

Well, I like these far more than high school stories, I love competition in the work place & work enemies kinda stories they’re my fav :fire:

Nah, tbh I find them weird. Especially when the Li is a wolf :face_with_monocle:

Soooo most of all, I love stories abt competitive enemies in the work place bc I love the growing tension between them, literally the best. Friends to lovers stories r overused but a dirty pleasure of mine that I secretly adore. As long as the Li isn’t a total a** & the mc is well developed, I’m in. Pregnancy is also a no no for me bc I don’t want kids, however, as long as a story isn’t problematic/harmful/triggering to ppl, I’ll read it. Also, good grammar is vital for me :white_heart:

sorry but none of your examples are my cup of tea, most of them are turn-offs for me. here are my lists of things i hate and things i love

Things i like
  • Slow burn romance,
  • Family stories,
  • stories with point system and multiple li’s who I can chose who to spend time with and end up with,
  • LI’s who are roughly the same age, the li should not be 15 years older than the MC.
  • stories where choices are important
  • stories where there is a Spotify playlist or an apple music playlist to listen to as I play
  • Friends to lovers, it is overused but yet adorable!
  • enemies to lovers, I just find them hilarious
  • sweet, realistic story
  • good grammar
Things i hate
  • bad grammar
  • lots of misspelled words
  • trauma, abuse, rape
  • teen pregnancies,
  • stories where author’s obviously haven’t done any research
  • most vampire, werewolf, witch, and alien stories. They are just boring and repetitive.
  • stories that are racist or discriminatory
  • stories that only use, @/character enters from right to screen right. it’s not hard to use spot directing,
  • mafia stories, i loathe em, absolutely loathe em. killers are not sexy! Killers are killers who should go to jail at least!
  • stories that force the author’s political opinion down our throats. Please keep your opinion to yourself.

My favorites are college ones, and job/career ones
I’m also reading a story about a young single mother, raising a 6 year old, it’s a really good story
Idk if I have a specific preference, it really just depends on how well the story is laid out, and what the story is about.

What do you mean “author’s poticial opinion”? And what’s this “please keep your opinion to yourself”? I’m just wondering that all.

As in, if the whole way thru the story, the author is showing a strong political view. Bc an author shouldn’t b trying to influence their young readers on certain topics like religion, politics whatever. Bc it’s unethical to influence teens thru ur writing.
