Follow Friday #2

 

         Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee and Alison of Alison Can Read.

Q: Define what characteristics your favourite books share. Do they all have a kick ass heroine or is the hot love interest the Alpha Male?

A: I tend to look for something much more unique in books than many other reader's. I plan to one day be a Counsellor for young people, which I believe influences what I enjoy in books. Despite a love for supernatural and dystopians, I find Real-life books much more to my style. In my favourite books, the majority of them share a running theme of real-life problems, which show the character's in many depth's.

  1. I'm normally a fan of paranormals and dystopians, but contemporary reads are the best way to break up the monotony. They tend to be much more grounded, realistic and relatable. Good for you for working to become a counselor!

  3. I'm a little like you, though for different reasons.. And it shows in different ways, as well. It's unfair, but when I think about how books shape us, I don't give people enough credit. Let's take Old Skool Pirate novels, where the heroine is actually raped by the hero. I couldn't like that, never. That's a big example, but there are other novels that "glorify" unhealthy relationships, i.e. Twilight or Hush, Hush. I have big issues with that. But I still prefer Paranormal over Contemporary. *grin*

    Does this even make sense? XD

    Anyway, Happy Friday!

  5. I'm usually into paranormal and dystopian and fantasy stuff, with romance included. I like contemporaries, too, but I usually don't find it my first line of reading preference.

  6. I agree. Books with real life problems that make you think and feel are normally very good!
