In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!
"What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?"
Answer: For me, I think they're both important - the plot needs to be something that grabs me and holds my attention because right in the beginning it's what decides if I keep reading or not. But if I had to pick, I would say that ultimately, the characters are what sell the story. Once I've settled into the story, it's VITAL that I connect with the characters otherwise it's difficult for me to care about what happens. I read for the emotion, for the excitement of the the experience and 9 times out of 10, I enjoy the book I'm reading when I've loved the characters.
I'm now at home recovering. I finally was able to read Last Sacrifice and my review will be posted this coming Sunday :)
I'm taking part in the MIDWINTER'S EVER BLOG GIVEAWAY HOP this coming week. It's held from Tuesday 22 to Wednesday 23rd (two days ONLY) and I'm giving away FIVE books - The Wallflower series by Lisa Kleypas. It's one of my favorite historical romance series and I can't wait to give them away. Make sure you come back and enter.
I gave my blog an exciting makeover. I loved my old template but somewhere along the way I started linking Pepto Bismal with it. I threw MAJOR caution to the wind when I couldn't find a ready made template I liked and had to create one and even though I'm a little biased, I think it turned out GREAT!!
