Book Blog Hop

Posted on: December 19, 2010

Book Blogger Hop

I love blogging about books! Crazy For Books is a blog that I enjoy reading as well. She reviews some awesome books, and is always totally honest in her reviews. She is passionate about reading, just like I am, and wants to share her love of reading with other readers, just like I do.

Jennifer at crazy-for-books.com has created a great way for readers, book lovers, and book reviewers to network and find other great blogs about books. She calls it the Book Blogger Hop! Click on the button above and head over to her site to add your book blog to her linky list. Then, cruise through the other link to find other book blogs you may not have seen yet, or reacquaint yourself with a book blog you may have read in the past. Either way, you’re sure to have a blast as you peruse the blogs of other book lovers like yourself and find some great new books to read.

This week’s question comes from Geek on the Brink:

“What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?”

Honestly, I don’t think I can pick between the two. The plot is what drives the story, and the plot is what gives you the “what comes next?” thoughts. The plot is what drives the story – you are reading the book to see how it ends, and for great books, even if you can’t wait to finish them and find out what happens, you savor everything that happens along the way in the plot. That said, you can’t have a good plot without well fleshed out characters. Deep characters that are well rounded and real, as well as easy to relate to, are the vehicle for a good plot. They go hand in hand, so really, if a book doesn’t have a good plot, you know you don’t have good characters, and if a book has poor characters, you know you won’t have a good plot. They are too hand in hand for me to make a decision.
