Hi everyone! Its another Follow Friday (Thursday night) post here at Lost Amongst the Shelves. Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee and features up and coming blogs along with a book related post. This week's question is...
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 LOVE a strong and independent heroine. I can't stand when the girl is wishy washy or dependent on a guy. I want some girl power! I also love when the love interest is witty and a bit brooding. And if he can make me laugh with saracstic one liners even better. I know its kind of overdone: girl falls in love with the 'baddish' boy, but I'm just a sucker for when opposites attract. My favorite quality of a book though is when the relationship struggles and you can see love acutally develop just like in real life. I want to see the turmoil and the boy fight for the girl and the roller coaster of emotions all over a normal period of time. NO INSTA LOVE!
This could be the requirements for any genre too. I could see this fit into a contemporary as well as a paranormal so I could go either way.
