Follow Friday (5) and Weekly Recap

It’s Follow Friday! Hosted by the always amazing Parajunkee’s View, this is a chance to meet new blogger friends and grow our networks.

This week’s question is “What is your favorite romance hero-type? Do you like the strong silent type or the brute macho man?”

I have to say that in literature I am very drawn to the macho type, though in real life I’m definitely more of a strong and silent kinda gal. If you knew my husband you would be nodding emphatically right now. Guys like the suave, single dad pack leader Adam Hauptman in Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series or the rugged, red-headed Highlander Jamie Fraser in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series are more my style when reading. It’s the perfect fantasy. If I’m already in a make believe world of shifters or time travel, you may as well include a guy who is devastatingly attractive, handy with his fists, and so in love with you that he would do anything to protect your honor/well-being. Ahem. *fans self*

  1. "If I'm already in a make believe world of shifters or time travel, you may as well include a guy who is devastatingly attractive, handy with his fists, and so in love with you that he would do anything to protect your honor/well-being." Love that description! If I hadn't already posted my post, I think I'd ask if I could use this, lol.

  2. Hi There! My name is Gina and I'm a new follower. I found you through your post on fellow blogger "Small Review's" blog. I came over to visit your site and found it very easy on the eyes. I'm enlightened by your writing style, review format, and young adult literature interests. So, I thought I'd follow your blog.Also, in your post I read at Small Review's blog, it said you were afraid to start XVI because you are afraid you may not like it. I just finished reading it and found the storyline/plot very exciting. The book was action packed and kept me turning pages. Karr's strong suit isn't descriptive writing, never-the-less I still found the characters were likable and the dystopian society created was a believable one.Well, looking forward to following your blog! 🙂

  3. Love the recap – keep doing it! Looks like you had a busy writing week…unlike me….whoopsies. I think Sunday I'll be crunching the words out for the week. =)BTW – Did you have to mention Jamie from Outlander? I just broke a sweat! LOL

  4. @TheBookHour – Thanks for stopping by! I'm now following you too!@JenniElyse – It's so true, isn't it? Men like that don't really exist. :)@Gina – Thanks for finding me! I'm following you too. I'm really looking forward to reading XVI. I just love dystopians.@BookGeek – YOU'RE WELCOME. ;)@Jess – Hi there! I hopped by to return the favor. Hope to see all you new guys back around here again!
