This is a blog hop for bloggers to get to know other bloggers, & to help some gain more of a following and support system for their blog. It looks like it should be a lot of fun. To join in, go to the host's page and follow the steps they have posted up there. =D
This week's question is...
Define what characteristics your favorite books share. Do they all have a kick ass heroine or is the hot love interest the Alpha Male?
I would definitely say I need a little of both. Books that don't have some kind of romance tend to bore the heck outta me. Maybe because I don't have a real life love interest so I have to get my kicks somewhere else. LOL. As for the heroine, I need a chick with a backbone. Someone that isn't afraid to stand up for themselves but still knows how to be soft when the time calls for it. I can't stand people that can't stand up for themselves. I would have to say that my ALL TIME favorite heroine would be Rose from the 'VA' series. She is everything that I wish I could be (maybe even the half-vampire, part as well =D). As for my favorite guy characters I would definitely have to say Dimitri (from the 'VA' series... OME! So woon worthy), Tucker (from 'Unearthly' series... a sexy, sweet cowboy), and of course Edward (from none other then the 'Twilight' series... He was my first YA love, I can't help myself)... lol, but you will notice I didn't mention Bella... she was a little co-dependent for my tastes... LOL, so all in all... I need some kick ass, strong backboned, soft hearted chicks who know how to give in to the romance part of the book (and their strong counterparts) but still know how to be their own woman if push comes to shove. =D
