Blog Hop

Time again for the Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Crazy-For-Books!  This week's question is: 
"What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?"

This is a hard one to answer, because really I need both in a story.  It's a boring answer, I know, but I really need both of them in a balanced amount to enjoy the story.  I don't want so much plot and so little character that I don't care about or identify with the characters.  But at the same time, I'm not a huge fan of books that have no plot and are all about a character's development.  So, my wishy-washy (typical) answer is both are equally important to me.

Also, while you're hopping, hop over to Deepali's blog, E-volving Books, where I'm a featured guest today!  Bonus pictures of me in my pjs included!


  1. Lol, I think it's ok not to be able to choice. It wasn't right or wrong question :p
    Thanks for visiting our blog and if you're my neighbor I would have kidnapped your cat!

  2. I prefer both too, but I will have to pick plot if I am forced to choose. The story is what gets me hooked.
    My hop is at Coffee Table Press

  3. Thanks for coming over to my blog. Really good books have to have both, plot and great characters. But I go with character first all the way. (I love your book buying guide. Great choices!)

  4. Stopping by to say Hi! I agree that this was a difficult decision. In the end I choose plot, but went back and forth about twenty-seven times. By the end of the hop I might change my mind again… Stop by and say hi when you get a chance!

  5. Hi hope you have a Happy Holiday. I agree you need a bit of both to make a good book. But then been changing my mind for hours now lol.
