FF#1 - joining the craze every Friday from now on!

Feature & Follow is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read weekly. You can join me and post the links to your own #FF posts in the comments below.

The question this week is...

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?

Well, most of my favorite books give me that gut-wrenching feeling, the feeling of hopelessness. That's why I especially enjoy dystopian books. The worse things happen to characters, the more I enjoy it. I'm not talking about gore stuff, because that's not what I mean. But a situation that seems - in theory - unsolvable, that our characters just have to overcome... I really like that. It shows how resourceful the characters are and how they cope with the hard times.
Other than that, I obviously love strong characters. I'm not against banter/witty dialogues, but characters that are like that all the time tick me off. 

And I like the feeling of unknown, of the mystery that gets solved in the end. :)

So, what is your answer to this question? What makes you love the book?

  2. Haha the worse things happen, the better it is because you never know how they're going to get out of it! Hope you have a great Friday :)

    Here's my FF!

  3. New follower from Follow Friday, I'd love a follow back! I agree with you. The worse the things that happen to them, then the more dramatic and blood-racing it is. Dystopians are also one of my favorites.


  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am following you now.

  5. I do love that gut-wrenching, desperate feeling too -- but not every book. I have to mix in some happier books, or mysteries, or something else. I'm truly "eclectic." Thanks for visiting!

  6. Thanks for the welcome to book blogs!

    Personally, I am big on characters. I need to feel a connection and they need to seem 'real' to me. Plus, they can't be complete idiots, which I feel like happens in a few YA books. I hate it when they walk into trap after trap!

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