Follow Friday


Follow Friday is a weekly hop hosted by Rachel @ Parajunkee and Alison @ Alison Can Read

This weeks 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?

Almost all of my favorite books fall into the paranormal genre, even if it's not the main one, there is some element of otherness. I am also a huge sucker for the Alpha male, if there is a love triangle it's highly unlikely I fall on the side of the nice, supportive, friend guy. I like them tall, dark, broody and over the top confident. I figure this is due to my own Alpha femaleness (is that a word?), I can't get down with a push over,  I'd Black Widow the poor bugger. I NEVER love a book with a weak female lead, they make me want to gouge my eyes out. Women should be strong and confident in their own abilities, no crybabies here please. That's about it, Leave a link to your post so I can visit and follow back, and have a wicked awesome weekend ;)

  1. I agree, no weak females. Especially if they cry a lot. UGH. Like Sookie Stackhouse.

  5. Thanks for stopping by - always happy to return the visit.

    I agree, a weak character can completely destroy a book. I don't mind if they start out weak, but grow and develop throughout the story, but don't rely on pity and sorrow to carry me through to the end.

  7. It's so true how I'm the alpha female as well so I also need an alpha male because he'll end up being walked all over as well lol!
