Yeah, hopedihop from Blog To Blog!

Posted 17 December, 2010 by Danny in / 22 Comments

It’s Friday and the weekend is upon us! So, let’s celebrate with some Blog Love and Networking!

Let’s start with Jen’s Blog Hop.

Each week there is a new question to answer, which is fun and also helps to get to know each other better. This week’s question is from Alex over at Geek in the Brink . She asks:

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

Love that question and it’s an easy one for me. It’s most definitely the characters. I need to fall in love with them, or even hate them they need to trigger all kind of emotion. Of course the plot is important too, but if I cannot love the characters the plot can be as good as it wants – I won’t like the book.!

Parajunkee is also running a Follow Friday meme that we love. This week she’s featuring Carmel from Rabid Reads who poses the question:

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?

Ok I’m dying to know what all you guys answered on that one!

After school I went to University to study Biology and right now I’m working on my PhD. Next year I will finish and it scares the hell out of me thinking about my defense. I working in a pretty cool research field (Stem cell research – from mouse of course!) and I’m also doing lots of teaching which can be both totally frustrating and totally rewarding.

Here are some Highlights of the last week: 

  • All good things come to an end. We announced the winners of the Santa’s Sac Scavenger hunt and we are so sad this fun is over now. We had a blast with all of you and thanks so much for playing along! 
  • Still time to jump into the Beautiful Darkness Book Discussion. Week 7 by the wonderful AH from goodreads. Please join our discussion by answering this weeks question. And… as a cheery on top you are entered in a giveaway!!

  2. Hello my dear,

    I think that characters are very important. I love seeing what happen to them and I love to swoon over a few fictional boyfriends more then I should. 😉

    I recently finished a Biological Degree. Now I am working on a degree in History, Humanities, and Religious studies. I think I might never stop, Yes, the Mad Scientist thinks that she will be a lifer student. LOL!

    I'm also the creater of Morbid Romantica Challenge 2011 which I'm trying to get off the ground. It should be a very fun challenge. AND it wont seem like homework. *smirk*

    Today was the start of a Hardcover giveaway for Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Darkness @ Ridley's Giveaway
