Follow Friday is a weekly meme created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Every week one lucky blogger is featured, and the featured blogger is followed by all participants. On top of that, participants also follow each other. Win win for everyone!

Since this is NOT a blogger blog, I would like to be followed via RSS (which was recently updated to Feedburner), or by subscribing by email (insert your email at the top left sidebar).

Question: What characteristics do your favorite books share?

This is actually a very tough question. I read a variety of genres and enjoy a variety of books. I love kick-ass heroines, I love mysterious paranormal boyfriends (think Damon from The Vampire Diaries…yummy!), but I also love heroines who aren’t over-powered and are struggling against the forces of darkness. There’s nothing that really defines my favorite books, I guess. They’re all quite different. I love the Harry Potter books, I’m a great fan of In The Forests of The Night, but I also love reading Mists of Avalon, and there are no characteristics in common whatsoever in those books. One thing though that I love in all books, although admittingly not in all books it’s equally well-executed, is the love triangle. I know a lot of people are tired of those, but they just draw me in.

  1. Thanks for stopping by – always happy to return the visit (and the follow).

    I agree with heroes who aren’t over-powered – there’s nothing worse than a book that’s all about being bigger, stronger, and more powerful. It gets really boring, really fast.

  2. Love triangles are so frustrating to me. I guess only because I always seem to side with the guy that she doesn’t pick and then I think she’s stupid. But they can be fun sometimes too. Great answer! New subscriber 🙂 Check out my FF:

  3. Great answer! I personally like romance and great strong heroines, and I also love love triangles. I always think that the badboy is the best choice for the girl, mainly because he also is dep and tortured inside. New follower!
