Follow Friday (3)

Follow Friday is a blog hop hosted by two blogs, Alison of Alison Can Read and Rachel of Parajunkee.
It is a weekly meme created to influence community among blogs -- the concept -- I follow you and you follow me. Win, win!

How it works:
-Visit these two great blogs!
-Leave your name on the post.
-Create a post on your own blog that links back to the post (just grab the FF button) visit as many blogs as you can and tell them hello! In their comments.
-Be sure to follow them and if someone follows you follow back!!!!

This week's question:
Define what characteristics your favorite books share. Do they all have a kickass heroine or is the hot love interest the Alpha Male?

There are two things I look for in a book. A good love story that underlies the main plot and swoon worthy men. Strong and silent. Snarky and BA. If a book manages a great male character with a wounded past -- I just know it is the book for me!
Jace from TMI by Cassie Clare,
Sean Kendrick from The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater,
Archer Cross from Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

So many more.


  1. Jace, can't go wrong there :) New follower by the way :)

  4. You've listed both of my favorites here. A love story that can melt my heart and along with a guy who'd make me blush. Jace will do that to you!

  5. I love a book with a paranormal element. I just cannot get enough of those. It lets me escape reality.

  11. :-) Love you answer. I totally agree. Your blog is a lot of fun - glad to have found you! My FF: Colorimetry

  12. Hi!!!! I'm a new follower!!! I can't wait to continue to follow your blog!!! :)

    I completely agree; a love story is definitely an important element to the stories that I read too! :)

  13. I also love a great love story! But it has to feel real, not one where they fall in love in 5 seconds.

  14. A book doesn't have to have a love story in it for me to like it - but it helps! I don't like insta-love, and I usually prefer male characters to be a bit damaged and fragile, but still strong underneath. Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm following back.

    Happy reading!

  15. Hello! I am a new follower!! Found you via the blog hop! Can't wait to read your posts!
