Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly social blog hop between book bloggers. There are two hosts: Parajunkeeand Alison of Alison Can Read. If you want to join in, click on either of their blogs to get the details. The FF question of the day is:
Define what characteristics your favorite books share. Do they all
have a kickass heroine or is the hot love interest the Alpha Male?
My favorite books don't share a single concrete characteristic. I love good writing, cool characters, and a story that seems to be worth devoting X number of hours to it. I love being introduced to new worlds.
Some of my favorite books are Lolita, Middlemarch, The Handmaid's Tale, and Never Let Me Go. I suppose all of these books have a tragic heroine, and all of them are devoted to exploring women's experiences in different ways. If I had to guess, I'd say 70% of the books I read are written by women.
