Friday Blog Hop - December 17th

Book Blogger Hop

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!

Each week, participating blogs are asked questions to post and answer on their websites.

This week’s question –

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

Christinabean's take - I personally consider them to have equal importance. I can't keep reading the story if the plot isn't appealing and if I can't identify with the characters, I won't continue reading either.
Curlypow's take - I agree with Christinabean that both the characters and the plot are equally important, but it depends on how well the story is written.
Welcome to the Paperback Princesses! Make yourself at home, take a look around our blog and let us know what you think in the comments section. We would love to hear what you have to say about our posts. We often try to comment on your comments as well so feel free to start a conversation! Since there are two of us running the show, we always have a variety of titles and event postings. Be sure to check out our own personal meme page. Check out Fantastic Fairytales, Let's Hear it for the Boys, In Case you Missed it and a few others. We try to not only focus on new YA books but also great titles from the past. Happy hopping!



  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.

    Lots of good answers to this week's tough question.

    Stop by my blog to see my answer to this week's question.

    Also check out a design site I found...pretty neat home decorating is in the right side panel on my blog.

    Happy Holidays!!

  3. Happy to have found your blog via the hop and look forward to following. I agree, ultimately a good book needs a strong plot (esp. to hook readers in) and compelling characters (to keep them reading). Liked your REPLACEMENT review -- it's on my to-read list.

  4. Thanks Stasia! Welcome to our blog! The Replacement was not at all what I was expecting. I was thinking it would be creepy and scary but it wasn't at all. I still really enjoyed the book though. Glad I bought that one!
