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?
- Strong female leads
- Fantastic world building that is a little (or a lot) of the ordinary
- Fast-paced plot that will keep you turning the page and at the edge of your seat
- A relatable narrator
Of course, there are always exceptions, but these are just some elements that immediately make me think: I’m going to enjoy this book a lot!
It depends on the genre.
If it’s contemporary, right now I am most likely to pick it up if it looks really cute or super sweet. I just want a lot more sweet and fun contemporaries and the ones with eye-catching covers, whether it be at the store or on Goodreads or on a meme, are the ones that currently catch my eye.
If it’s anything else, I know that I usually shy away from anything that gives too much of a paranormal vibe.
If it isn’t something that I’m willing to pick up at the moment (right now it is paranormal and dystopia), then it would have to be a well-written review by a fellow blogger that will convince me, or a raving review from a blogger I already trust.
