This week's question:
Do you need romance in your books to read them? If not, what else “hooks” you? (Thank you, Rachel/Parajunkee!)
Yes and no, although it's definitely more on the "yes" side of the scale. Honestly I love romantic tension and the friction it causes. I can read straight Urban Fantasies, but I'm always scouting for the potential love interests. So, you would think Paranormal Romances would be my favorite reads, but that isn't the case. Sure I enjoy them, but I kinda hate how you have to get to "know" new characters with each installment. I just don't think this allows for the kind of character growth that really draws me into a series. So this is why you'll notice a trend with my favorite series as they all have a higher romantic element, or at least a very strong sexual tension:
And even with only putting the first book of the series up there, that's a pretty long list. But a good one ;)
