Follow Friday (28)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Allison Can Read. Visit either of their blogs for complete rules of the following fun!

This week's question:

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

This may be an obvious answer, but what I love is good writing. Whether it's a strong heroine or a swoon-worthy love interest, I want it to be written well with believable characters, settings, and actions. I also like books that make me think or that can cause me to consider things in a different perspective. I read to get lost in the stories, but I also read to expand my horizons. If a story or characters can stick with me long after I've finished the book, that's the hallmark of something truly good.

What are your answers? Please leave a comment or a link to your blog!


  1. Wow that's such a deep answer than mine haha. I get easily lost in my romances. As for good writing, it really needs to be a good story. Lauren Oliver is a great writer (language wise), but I still couldn't completely enjoy Delirium.

    Old follower!

  2. New follower! Good writing is a must in any book.

  3. Couldn't agree more. The writing is crucial.

    Come and see my FF HOP if you have the time.

  4. I see the world "alpha male" in a book and I stop reading. I prefer the hard to categorize books.

    Hard to believe it's February already. Happy Blog Hop. I hope you stop by.

  5. Hi, Christin, I am here from the Hop! I agree--good writing, thoughtful writing, is essential!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  6. I also think good writing is crucial for a book to be amazing. I also like well developed characters and when the author creates a world that I would like to be a part of- such as Harry Potter and the Hunger Games.
