Follow Friday # 3 and Book Blogger Hop # 2



This meme is hosted by Parajunkee's View

This week's 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?


My Answer: I studied Music and Video business but ended up becoming a Stay at Home Mom.





Book Blogger Hop


Is hosted by Crazy For Books

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

My answer: I love a really good plot without that not much to a book but part of me loves a good character as well - for example I love a character with a sarcastic sense of humor.

Hi! Old follower here. I studied English and became an English teacher and editor. Pretty linear career choice, I guess.

Have a great weekend!

You and me both on the sarcastic sense of humor, I'm always drawn to characters with a little snark in them as they never fail to make me laugh:) Thanks for stopping by my blog, I hope you have a great weekend!

Stephanie said...

Sarcastic characters are the best, especially when they sneak in their quips so subtly.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good weekend!

Thanks for visiting my blog :)

I think that because I read for plot, I kinda eat stories up. You know, read it then start on the next. Only very, very good books (i.e: The Declaration trilogy by Gemma Malley and Saving Zoe by Alyson Noel)actually make me sit and wonder about the whole story.

I went to college for EngAlish and journalism and became a copy editor. I just wish someone told me I would be broke all the time!

I'm all about the plot it has to draw you in. Sometimes a character can take longer to get into.

Natalie (Mindful Musings) said...

Oh, I also love a character with a sarcastic sense of humor! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend!

AnimeGirl said...

I like sarcastic humor too, but it has to be well done so it's not rude or cruel.

I like both but I like take character over plot if I have to.

Ps - I studied Biology and then got certified to teach English as a language *g*

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm a SAHM too now for the moment but I studied both Environmental Management and Political Science. Two pretty different degrees and I'm not sure either of them will find me my forever job!

Happy weekend :)

Thanks for stopping by.
Yeah, I'm really kind of shy when it comes to new people and places so once I'm somewhere I tend to stay there. I've only had two jobs since graduating high school (which was 6 years ago).So yeah I like my bubble. :)

Stopping by on the hop--though I'm more about the character, I agree with you about the sarcasm/snark. Must be why Severus Snape, particularly of fanfiction, is one of my favorite characters!

Hi there - new follow! I am getting married soon, and we've discussed the stay-at-home mom option - I probably will while my (future) children are little.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Old follower hopping by. :)

I really like a sarcastic character too. I think they make a book interesting and add a good type of humor to an otherwise serious book.

Kristina said...

Hi, I love sarcastic characters. Probably why I'm a sucker for sidekicks, they tend to get that trait.

Jenni Elyse said...

That's cool that you're a stay-at-home mom. If my husband and I ever have children, that's what I'd like to do.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Annette said...

I tried the stay at home thing when my kids were little-couldn't do it. But I got a part time job until they were in school and I loved that. Good for you!

~Sara said...

I'm 3rd year in university, studying Pyschology and Conflict Resolution. We'll see where that gets me.

April said...

Hey! :)
Thanks for visiting my blog!
and to answer your question we finish school at 16 but we can stay on until we are 18 if we want to to do our As and A level exams which are the marks that count if we want to go to university.

I hope that makes more sense.:)

Thanks for hopping by! I'm fond of sarcasm as well, especially when the humor behind it is subtle.

Anaiz said...

That sounds like an interesting major, I think being a SAHM is sweet, I hope to be able to care for my kids (if I ever have any) the same way. Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great weekend! :):)

@lex said...

Thank you for stopping by! :D
I can see how you might prefer the plot to characters...
Have a beautiful weekend.

danya said...

Thanks for dropping by my blog! I found it really tough to decide for this week's question - plot and characters both bring something unique to a good book.

Anne Bennett said...

Thanks for dropping by my blog. I am very conflicted about the plot/character question.

BLHmistress said...

I am still conflicted too , characters is what grabs me most of the time but its the plot that gets me going to begin with.

BC said...

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog. And I agree with brave chicken, The Declaration is an awesome book.

Alisha (MyNeedToRead) said...

Indeed, a great sense of humor in a character is so much fun. Much easier to access and get comfortable with them, then.

I Read Banned Books said...

Thx for hopping by! Sense of humor is a must for me too! Great points...

Jen

abitosunshine said...

Hope your weekend is going well, thanks for stopping by and happy reading!

Casey (The Bookish Type) said...

Good point -- it's not much of a book without a plot! But I find myself really drawn to character-driven novels. I connect with them more =)

Alison said...

Doing a late hop back from the Friday hops. I was out of town this weekend and busier than I expected to be - hence the lack of Internet time.
Music and video business sounds really interesting.
