Follow Friday 2

SO here's the second Follow Friday!
Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, and this week's question is.....

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?

I suppose I do like kickass heroines, but they aren't a must. What's a must for me is a romance of some kind, mostly the troubled kind, and dollops of great imaginative scenarios and crazy good writing.

But alpha males are somehow a total no-no for me. I mean, I do enjoy a good hero with all his dirt and defiance, but not the kind that can make girls go so weak and kittenish that they can barely speak, let alone do any of their usual kickassery.

But I guess, the writing matters most, and I'll enjoy all sorts of characters if it is just written well enough.



  1. A romance is a must for me too!

  2. Great answer! Writing is so important.

  3. Without romance, books get a little boring for me. I also think that the hero shouldn't overpower the heroine. It's ok for him to make her a bit uncomfortable with their chemistry, but she shouldn't become catatonic. LOL

  4. Nice answer, I wish my answer could have been as smooth.:)

  5. Great answer! A kick-ass heroine is not a must for me either! As long as I have a reason to like the characters then I usually love the book! New follower :) Check out my FF:

    It's not a must, kickass heroines. But I love some loving in my books. :D
