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

A. I will say that I do love books that have a strong, smart, kick ass heroine that can hold her own in them, like Katniss from the Hunger Games or Scarlet from Scarlet (lol seems like I'm repeating myself a bit there). When the heroine in a book is completely submissive and has that whole "damsel in distress", "can't-do-anything-for-herself" thing going on it makes it really hard to relate to the character and when I don't have a connection with the character it's harder to really get into the story.

I also like books where the male lead is a bad boy, that's actually sweet and caring under the tuff exterior. Or where the male lead is just sweet from the get go. But really, while I do read books that have similarities a lot of my favorite books are different from each other. But one thing they all have in common is the fact that they're all great stories.

Happy Friday lovelies!

  2. I like stronger heroines too. But, I'm okay with the weaker ones like Bella. They don't bother me as much as they seem to bother other people. But, I agree, I need to connect to the characters so I can love the story more.

  3. I love books with strong heroines! I don't like those stupid whiney girls who can't do anything for themselves *cough cough* Bella.

  4. I agree with all that! I tend to lean toward the badboys in stories and books, especially if there's a love triangle. New follower!
