Book Blogger Hop (14) and Follow My Book Blog (10)

Book Blogger Hop is hosted at Crazy For Books while Follow My Book Blog is hosted at Parajunkee's View.
 This Week's Question:
 "What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?"
My Answer:
Well, the plot is basically the story and without a story, you don't have characters. So I guess the plot is more important, but characters do have a big part in making the story exciting. It's a tie.


This Week's Question:

Carmel is studying web design... 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?

My Answer:
I'm still a freshman in high school, but if I were to study something, I think it'd be archeology. I really want to travel the world and discover new things someday:)

Thanks for visiting!

  4. Hi! Hopping by and new follower ^^

    I definitely agree that the plot is KEY for a story since it IS the story really, and it's what gets you hooked into and intrigued with the story. :)

    cheers and happy reading

  5. Hi Danna! Ahhh I've missed coming to your blog. My self-exile was horrible. :(

    Anywhoo, enjoy college-less life while you can. Finals SUCK. I've consumed more caffeinated drinks and energy shots and I've cried/stressed over more things in my college career than I have my entire life. xD

    Anywhoo, yeah, I'm kind of with you on that. I thought it was like a catch-22 - you can't have a good book without a good plot or good characters. :s Even the best plots won't pull through without at least decent characters. And without a good plot, even the most amazing characters won't pull through. Yeesh. :P

    Here's my blog hop. Have a great Friday! <3

  6. I agree it's def a tie. You can't really have one without the other. (That so reminds of the theme song for married with children):)

    Have a great weekend!

  7. Hi! I'm a new follower. They do tie-in. I feel that characters make the plot. By the way, I love the polka dotted background. Very cute :)
    Have a great weekend!

  8. Happy HOP! This week's question wasn't so simple to answer but ultimately it was characters for me. That's where I make my connection to the story. Come HOP by The Bookish Snob

  11. I did not go to college, and I am currently retired. I worked for over 15 years in the secretarial division of Emery Air Freight in the 1960s and 1970s. I was a stay-at-home mom for the 1980s and 1990s, and now I am helping my daughter with her business, Tribute Books as the volunteer office manager.

  13. Oh me what a question this week.

    I really think the characters are important. It makes me want to read the book if I want to know the characters. But a good plot with twists just makes it move along.

    I just finished a degree in Biological Sciences and am still working on a degree in Humanities, History, and Religious Studies. What do I want to do when I grow up? I want to be the hottest historian on the history channel, national geographic, or discovery channel!

    I'm launching a new reading challenge that you might be interested in, Morbid Romantica Challenge 2011.

    Also today is the start of a Ridley's Giveaway where you can win a Hardcover copy of either Beautiful Creatures or Beautiful Darkness.

  14. I studied film my first time around in college. Now I'm doing library science. I prefer characters over plot. But both are important. Happy Blog Hop.

  15. Hi Danna! I think archeology sounds like an awesome major. I was considering paleontology before I decided on English, and even now sometimes I wonder if I would enjoy going out into the desert to hunt for dinosaur bones more than sitting at home and reading books written by dead people. Hm...perhaps a dual major is in order? Ah well. Anyway, happy Friday!
