Book Blogger Hop

I've seen this fun little feature around several blogs and decided to join in on the fun! The Book Blogger Hop is basically a way for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! Plus a great way to find more book blogs to love :) For more information on the Hop, swing by Crazy For Books.

This week's questions is: 
"What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?" 

Hhhmm....this one is tough. Plots are the basis of any story. It's what gets us from point A to point B. If something isn't happening, I'm usually waiting to hit page 50 so I know if I should give up or not. (I have a 50-page limit to all books.) BUT I love characters. Since most stories I read are told in first person, I need these characters to be rich, well-rounded, and show me what they're made out of. I don't necessarily have to love all the characters, not even the main character, but they have to be interesting enough for me to want to know what is going to happen to them. So for my answer, I'm going with: characters.

Hi, just hopping by! I chose character myself, but only by a narrow margin. Both are essential to a good story.

Characters do make all the difference.
