Book Blog Hop

Friday's Book Blog Hop is hosted by Jen at Crazy for Books.
This week's question:

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

I think this one is a tough one. While the plot is pretty important- at least in terms of keeping the story moving, which makes me want to keep reading, the characters are also high up there on my list of things that are essential to my enjoyment, too. I really enjoy books that have characters I can relate to, yet I can think of several books whose characters I didn't enjoy, but because the story was well written and interesting, I still managed to enjoy the book. I'm not sure I could say that I enjoyed a book if the plot was not very good.

As of Friday (tomorrow)at 3:45 pm I am officially on winter break. YAY! I have such a stack of books that I know what I will be doing!

The BBH question was a tough one for me this week! Very hard to choose either.

Hi old follower I personally love both its hard to choose though characters help me get drawn into a book to begin with.

I'm totally with plot. :) The most solid answer to this question but it's still on someone's preference. Anyway, read my answer in Clandestine Sanctuary.

I'm an old follower. Have a great weekend.

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.

Congrats on being on winter break (soon if not already). I think it is the characters that drive a story more for me not the plot. Here's my answer.
