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?
