Bookie Brunch schedule

Now follow me to this week's Bookie Brunch meeting for a bit of chit chat at Splash of our Worlds

Bookie Brunch Question of the day:

What's the most important part of a book for you, characters or plot?


* get a heads up on free or discounted ebooks from Books on the Knob

* per usual, check out the sidebar for my current giveaways to you

* image from Leafcutter Designs - world's smallest postal service and you can get a letter kit at Chronicle Books

* In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren and inspired by Pop Culture Junkie. A post where we share books acquired via mailbox, library, store, etc.


  1. O The Dragon and the Pearl is a great cover.

  2. Frost Moon is no longer free.

    I like a good mix of both plot and characters. It has to be interesting on both accounts. If you have ridiculous characters, you don't care about the plot. If you have a stupid plot, the characters won't mesh... so it's a fine line of having a combination of both.

  3. I would so love to get Blood Rights but I am staying away from netgalley right now. Happy reading

  4. I got blood rights from NG too, soooo excited :D

  5. The Dragon and the Pearl looks good. I love the cover. Happy reading!

  6. Re: Bookie Brunch...both are meaningful but my books much have a stellar plot or fabu characters at a minimum. Certainly, I enjoy a plotless book if it's a great character study but I'm not sure I can enjoy a plot heavy book with thin characters.

  7. Per the Bookie Brunch Q:
    I have to be honest here and admit I'm a sucker for epic/awesome plots above all else. Especially the descriptions/detail ...
    I want to really be able to feel I am THERE.

    While characterization is important, generally I don't have much patience for lengthy, in-depth psychological analyzation, etc.

    A little of that can go a longgggggg way.
