Q: Define what characteristics your favorite books share. Do they all have a kickass heroine or is the hot love interest the Alpha Male?
I read a huge range of books, so I couldn't say they all featured something such as a particular style of heroine.
But, what I look for in books is a good storyline that is well thought-out and executed. Believable and well-rounded characters that I can get behind. Descriptive prose, good dialogue and that extra spark that makes a book stay in your mind well after you've turned the final page.
