FOLLOW FRIDAY


Happy Friday everyone!!  The Feature & Follow is a meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison where you get to meet great new people/blogs and keep in touch with the ones you're already following.  This week's features are Progress and Procrastination and Omnom Books.

Q: Define what characteristics your favorite books share. Do they all have a kick ass heroine or is the hot love interest the Alpha Male?

My favorite books don't always have a kick a** heroine or hero.  I just have to care about the MC.  I have to want to know more about them.  Also, I've noticed that I like a male lead who really cares about the MC.  He just has to be good to her, loyal, willing to take a bullet LOL.  Whether he's a bad boy or a nice guy, I want him to be all about the heroine (and vice versa).  My faves also always suprise me in some fantastic way.  And by that, I mean they exceed my expectations.  They take what I thought was going to happen and kick it up to the nth degree.  Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Anna Dressed in Blood and, of course, my beloved Black Dagger Brotherhood all did this :D

Hope you all have a great weekend!

    1. I know, it's so hard to keep reading if I don't care about the MC :/ Thanks for following, off to check out your blog

  2. I've seen those answers around a lot! Mainly because everybody loves that stuff, me especially. You could say I'm a hopeless romantic! ;) New follower, by the way!

  3. I'm so there with you. I don't care if the MC is strong or wimpy; I just want to connect with him/her and to care about him/her. I also want a love interest that has chemistry with the MC, whether they're "bad" or "good," just as long as they're devoted. Great answer!

    1. Yes, with love interests, I really think the chemistry plays a huge role. Thanks for stopping by Jenni!

  4. I agree with you there. Though I particularly like a kick-butt heroine.

  6. It's true you're right. I think it depends on the books.
