Book Blogger Hop (13) + Follow Friday (12)

It's Follow Friday!

This is my eleventh tenth Follow My Blog Friday, a weekly meme hosted by hosted by Parajunkee's View!

Follow Friday 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?

I took a few college classes but life took me on another path of getting married and starting a family.  I would love to go back to school and if I did I would go to be an RN to work in the NICU or PICU.  That is what I wanted to do.  For now, I am a Stay-At-Home-Mommy, a wife, and a photographer on the side.

This is my twelfth Book Blogger Hop, a weekly meme hosted by Crazy-For-Books 

Book Blogger Hop Question:

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

Whoa, great question! You know these two really do go hand in hand but I have found I can read a never ending story a lot longer with more enjoyment than I can a story where I despise the character.

So, what about you?

  1. Hi new follower here, I love a good plot but the characters have to grab me too.

    My Follow Friday/Book Blogger Hop

  2. I'm an old follower :) Stopping by to say hello and happy holidays!

  3. Just stopping by from the follow.

    Looks like you had some good reading. i'll have to come check out some of the reviews. I'm interested to know about nevermore.

  4. Hiii! <33

    I was thinking about NICU, also. (Two of my aunts are NICU nurses.) Or OR. But I finally decided on pediatrics - my heart has been in pediatrics since I volunteered for the hospital so long ago.

    But aww, I'd kill to be a stay-at-home mom. Unfortunately, that path doesn't seem to be working out for me hah. :/

    Here's my blog hop. Have a great Friday! <3

  5. Happy HOP! This week's question wasn't so simple to answer but ultimately it was characters for me. That's where I make my connection to the story. LOVE your blog and I'll be back.

    Thanks for coming by :D

  6. Hi! Old Follower here. Just stopping by on the blog hop and FF. Hope you have a great weekend :)

  8. Joining you from over at the Book Blogger Hop, it's nice to have met you, I've enjoyed my visit.

  9. Hi, I am stopping by from FF and the Hop. I love your blog and I am so happy that I found it. I am a new follower =D

    I also think both are important but if I don't like the characters I can't read the book.

  11. I did not go to college, and I am currently retired. I worked for over 15 years in the secretarial division of Emery Air Freight in the 1960s and 1970s. I was a stay-at-home mom for the 1980s and 1990s, and now I am helping my daughter with her business, Tribute Books as the volunteer office manager.
