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?

You know, I love a good kick ass heroine and I am all about a drool worthy alpha male but what all of my favorite books share is the unexpected. 

It can be something little or a huge event. Have to do with the characters themselves and doing something outside of what is typically expected of them (ex. Zsadist in Lover Awakened) or a twist in the plot you just don't see coming. One of my favorite "unexpecteds" was What a Dragon Should Know by G.A.Aiken. I LOVE her writing as Shelly Laurenston. She's hilarious and I always expect a good laugh from her books. Same with her writing as Aiken. But with this book she had me in a puddle of tears with the the storyline and way she wrote the characters and their reactions. It blew me away because it was something I would never expect from her writing. 


  1. I love good humor in a serious book.

    1. It is fantastic. Love it the other way around too. I guess I just love them all :)

  2. It's nice when authors do things that you didnt expect them to, and it turns out to be awesome.
