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?
I really like to read some books with kick ass heroines. I think it’s the reason I read a lot of Urban Fantasy novels, they always have what I want from a book. We can find a strong heroine but who however always has some weaknesses, so it’s easier to relate to her. After that, I think it’s quite the same thing for everyone, I need a story with a good plot and some interesting characters.
I think it’s nice to have some Alpha Males but it depends on the book. I’m not too difficult with my books, really, I just need to get into the story.

  1. I love kick-ass heroines too — they’re always so much more fun to read about! 🙂 But you’re so right when you say that you want to be able to relate to the character, Mel! Because it doesn’t matter how kick-ass she is if you can’t connect with her, right? And have a hot guy to swoon over definitely makes it more interesting! x)

    This was such an awesome answer, Mel! Our formulas for awesome books are so similar! 🙂 <3 I hope you have an amaaaaazing weekend!

  2. I agree with you Melanie!;)

    A kick-ass heroine with a weaknes I can relate to is perfect! I love UF as well.:) But I just love to throw an Alpha male into the mix!;)

    Very impressive that you read/write your reviews/books in French and English!;)

    Thanks for stopping by my #FF

    • I found your blog because you follow on twitter. it’s was a nice discovery. Thank you! I agree it’s really nice with one Alpha male, but there is always an Alpha male!

      Thank you I love to share in both langages, even if I’m better in French lol.

  3. Hi! THanks for stopping by on Friday. Sorry it’s taken all weekend to return the favour!

    I agree, a kickass heroine is often the foundation for a great story. Some heroines go a bit too far for me, though, like Katsa from Graceling. I didn’t like her at all. It’s the same with alpha males – some are great but some are just too much! Have you read Jory Strong? She writes UF erotica and I don’t recommend her if you haven’t but her male characters are an example of males that are just too alpha-y!

    Hope you had a great weekend!

  4. Hey Melliane,
    Old follower here 🙂 Loved your answer; that’s pretty much why I love Urban Fantasy, too. It’s always got a really tough girl lead, but, like you said, the weaknesses humanize her and give her something relatable.
    Hope you have a great week,
    Ninja Girl
