Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday

Book Blogger Hop

This week's prompt is:

Tell us about one of your posts from this week and give us a link so we can read it (review or otherwise)!

I think the post from this week that I like the most is about the contest. We are giving away a signed copy of Unearthly by Cynthia Hand and the chance to win a Nook! Check out the specifics here. The contest ends Feb. 13th.

What is your favorite romance hero-type? Stereotype wise. Do you

like the strong silent type or the brute macho man?

Hmmm, this is a tough one. Especially for someone who is not much of a romance reader. Tevya would be so much better equipped to answer this question. She's busy at the moment, but when she gets home I will add her response.

I think that I prefer the strong silent type. I like the romantic hero type that is always supportive and stands up for what he believes in, but uses his brains instead of his brawn. However, I do like a little sass from time to time. I am not a fan of the macho type at all. Give me someone like Sam Roth from the Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater or a Dean Winchester type over a macho BDB type any day.

LOL Macho BDB type? She's a funny one, isn't she? Here to add in my answers. :) Oh what a question....aren't they all just yummy? I mean really, how's a girl to choose? While Andrea has a point about the strong silent type, and I have fallen for many a characters like Sam Roth (can I get a *sigh*?) and Edward Cullen, I typically go for the bad boys. I like the rough and rugged, take charge, doing what the heck he wants to no matter what. I like the rebel, both the subtle rebel and the flat out in your face rebel. I like my hero to take matters into his own hands, be the protector, but still appreciate the beauty and strength (and mind) of a strong, independent woman. Oh wow - I could go on and on. Hmmm....perhaps we need a list? Top 10 favorite strong and silent types and top 10 macho men? It would be fun to see how different mine and Andrea's answers are on both lists. I think that may just be an idea for another day...


  1. I totally agree with you on the Follow Friday question :)

  2. This was a great way to promote our Nook giveaway. :)

  6. OMG Sam & Edward would definitely make my top 10 :D

    I'm following back bb :)

  7. I love Maggie's series, but Sam would definitely NOT be the type for me. He's a bit too sensitive for my tastes. I just can't stand overly sensitive or the clingy ones. Ick LOL!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Dean Winchester, yup I'd agree, I am all over that. I am however also all over BDB macho. what can I say. Happy Hop, and have a good weekend!

  10. I love Sam! But I also love a BDB maco man. Honestly, I'm not too picky. I'll take whatever. Wonder what that makes me... ;-)

  14. Hallos! Lovely blog! I luv the color scheme. *grins*

    Yeah, I can relate to choosing Dean over a BDB fella. Dean's voices *always* sends the shivers up and down my spine. :)
