I'm a librarian based in the UK who loves books. I'm happiest when I'm either talking about them, reading them or buying them. This blog is dedicated mainly to my addiction to YA fiction but you will also find some adult and non-fiction book reviews as well.

Book Blogger Hop (17-20 December)

This week I am taking part in Friday's Book Blogger Hop, which is hosted by 
Crazy for Books


If you've just stumbled upon me via one of these, then welcome to my blog. I hope you find something that interests you!  The Hop is a great opportunity to visit lots of new blogs and meet like-minded book lovers from around the world.  I love taking part :)

I'm going to go and explore some of the other links over the weekend.  If you'd like to join in the fun too, then head on over to Crazy for Books, read the rules, post your own link and away you go :)

The question this week for the book hop is from Alex at Geek on the Brink:

 "What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?"
That's a really good question.  When I'm browsing books in a shop or online, it's usually the plot synopsis that first gets me interested and makes me want to pick it up and read it.  However, when I start reading, if the characters don't click with me then often not even a good plot can save it.  So I guess I consider them both equally important!

  1. 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.

  3. I'm coming by from the hop...
    I think plot is important of course, but I lean very heavily toward character on this vote. I can love slow books with well-developed characters but no plot is interesting enough to save a book if the characters are flat and unreal to me.

  5. Just hopping by... and I also agree with you. The plot will grab my attention, but the characters need to keep my attention.

    I totally agree that it's hard to care about the plot of a novel if the characters suck.

    Happy Hop!
