Follow Me Friday #11

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


To me, I find myself needing the element of romance in every single book I read. I don't mind if the heroine is not kickass (though if they are that would be a bonus, and I hate whiny characters), romance and action is what keeps me going. A book without romance will often bore me, but on the other hand I couldn't stand cliche plots. Love at first sight and human-vampire love story has became so overrated that it no longer 'wows' me, that is why I am always in search of creative story plots with a dose of heart-fluttering romance. Yes, I still adore vampires, but now that I am bored with the vampire and human romance world, in future I will be extra picky in selecting such books.

Okay wow, I kinda got lost in my own rant back there. As a conclusion, non-cliche-or-if-you-have-to-be-cliche-be-more-creative-kind-of-cliche-romance is what defines my kind of books. Also, I couldn't resist bad boys or quiet guys with brunette hairs   ♥

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

  2. I totally agree with you. I need romance in a book as well or I simply get EXTREMELY bored with a book. But I need strong characters as well, if the main character is weak and gives in to easily I find myself hating the book. Great FF.

  7. I love romance in my stories. If you like vampires but are tired of the cliched vampire/human romance you should try reading Sunshing by Robin McKinley. It's wonderful :)
