Feature & Follow Friday -- It's Been a While

I haven't participated in this for several weeks, but I'm back. Here's the question to ponder:


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?


My favorite books are "page turners." The kind that make your heart pump. They have lots of adventure, and daring escapades. Although, if I don't relate to the characters, my heart doesn't pound, so it takes more than plotting to really make a great book.

I do like sweet, warm-hearted, friendship books too. (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is one of my favorites.) I guess being an eclectic reader, I have lots of different things that rock my book-world.

It's an interesting question this week, and you should go check out all the answers at Parajunkee's and Alison's. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

  1. I love a good page turner too, but I don't like to be scared. I just like to be intensely involved. :) Have a great weekend!

  2. I love a good page-turner too. Most of the page-turners that I love have some sort of fantasy element to them. I love me some fantasy!

  5. I love that answer! I think that it has to be a page turner with great action and great writing! It has to basically be good enough that I'd read it until late at night!

  6. Ahhhh, page-turners. That's totally it for me too. When in addition I can relate to the characters, it makes the perfect book at least in my opinion. When the plot is awesome, but the characters are "not my type"... well, I still love the book, but just a but less. ;)

    Here's my #FF if you'd like to check it out:
