Book Blogger Hop!

Dear Blog,
I haven't participated in this meme hosted over at Crazy For Books for a few weeks, mostly because I've been too busy.  However, I'm in search of new blogs this week, so I'm participating again.
Anyway. As with every week, a question is posted along with the Linky for participants to answer.  This week it's:

"What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?"
My answer: It's an interesting question.  Some books can have entirely suckish plots and incredible characters that still make it excellent; some books have an interesting plot but the most loathesome characters in the universe.  So I think that it's the characters that can matter the most; it's easier for a character to strike a chord with you than a whole plot line.

Well, that's all.  Hop forth, book bloggers.


  1. Hi! I'm trundling through on Blog Hop! Also, I agree with you: characters are more important. I like the point you made that readers can connect more immediately/more strongly with a character than with a plot. Also-also, I like your adorable background and header! V. cute.

  2. Hello, from the hop.
    Good characters are essential in my opinion too. I enjoy being able to connect with them!
    Have a lovely weekend!

  3. Yes, I agree. Thanks for stopping by my site! Have a great weekend.

  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.
