Book Blogger Hop (3) & Follow Friday (2)


Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books every Friday-Monday. It's a great opportunity to network and visit other blogs and meet new bloggers.

This weeks question is:
"What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot of the characters?"

I consider them both very important. I will usually only read a book if the synopsis interests me, but once I'm already reading, if the characters are unrealistic, boring and just plain annoying, that ruins the book for me.

Follow Friday is a meme hosted by Parajunkiee's View. Basically, it is a meme to help you get blog followers. Check out her blog and the Featured Blogger of the week!

This weeks question:
What did you study in college, or are currently studying and did it lead to your current 9 to 5 or are you doing something totally different?

I am still in high school so am unable to answer this question.

  1. Hello my dear,

    I think that characters are very important. I love seeing what happen to them and I love to swoon over a few fictional boyfriends more then I should. ;)

    I recently finished a Biological Degree. Now I am working on a degree in History, Humanities, and Religious studies. I think I might never stop, Yes, the Mad Scientist thinks that she will be a lifer student. LOL!

    I'm also the creater of Morbid Romantica Challenge 2011 which I'm trying to get off the ground. It should be a very fun challenge. AND it wont seem like homework. *smirk*

    Today was the start of a Hardcover giveaway for Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Darkness @ Ridley's Giveaway

  2. Hi Joana! Just popping in via the hop to say hi and have a great weekend! I'm a huge YA fan as well, so I'm glad to have found your blog! I completely agree with your answer, both are so important even though characters usually make or break a book for me:) I'm a new follower here and I look forward to more of your reviews!

  4. This might be the best Book Blogger Hop question I've seen to date.

    So what's the answer? Plot! Hop over to my blog and let me tell you how a good plot rescued bad characters from bad book oblivion.

  5. HI hopping on through. Happy Holidays and Have a great weekend.

    I think both are needed to hold my attention but characters grab me then I will ignore a sloppy plot.

    It never hurts to think about what you want to major in. Do you have any ideas yet?
