Book Blogger Hop + Follow Friday (11)11:24 PM
Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop are weekly events hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee and Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books respectively.
This week's FF question is: 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?
I'm currently a first-year university student studying life sciences but hoping to take some more English-related courses next year because it's something I'm more interested in. I've never had a job before except for maybe helping out my Dad now and then for his work... I focused on my school work in high school rather than getting one. I've always imagined my first job to be at a book store though!
This week's BBH questions is: What do you consider most important in a story, the characters or the plot?
Ugh! Tough question because I really do think they both go hand in hand! A great plot will engage you, keep you reading, and let the characters grow. They draw out your emotions, terrifying you one moment and leaving you breathless in another. They take on journeys to other worlds which you could never imagine. A book without a great storyline is not worth reading at all. But the same is true for characters! I don't want to read a book where the whole time I hate them and can't stop complaining about their actions. A story needs characters which people can relate and sympathize with so there's common understanding. A book can have an awesome plot but without great characters to support it, I'm not going to read it. You need a balance of both!!
What about you guys?
And wow! I haven't participated in either meme since early October! I'm going to make use of my holiday break and hopefully visit and find some new blogs to follow! If you stop by, please leave your blog link since it makes it easier for me to return a comment and/or follow!
Well, I'm off to do some blog hopping! *hops away*
