CHANGES & MERGER

Hello! I'm currently in the process of merging my 3 sites to make it easier for me to keep everything up.

So all book tours that have a ROMANCE title will be posted to the new site instead of here on Booksniffer Book Reviews. All non-romance titles will still be posted here.

Those posts can be found here: http://loveineverypage.weebly.com/

I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but it'll be better in the long run.

Feature & Follow Friday: Importance of Good Writing

Hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read


How important is good writing to you? In an ideal world, a book would be beautifully written AND have great character development, plot, etc. But in the real world, which do you prefer: (1) Great characters and plot with lousy writing or (2) Middling character development and plot but gorgeous writing


Good writing is always a plus, so I think it really comes down to whether the story is good or not. No one likes a book that is full of grammatical issues. But I think that if the story is good, the characters like-able then I'm a happy reader. Perfection sometimes is not a good thing, and I think that a story that has some minor flaws is better than one without any. I'd say I'd choose 1.5, a middle-ground between 1 and 2.


I'm not picky, so whichever of my follow options works
best for you is fine. I just prefer GFC.


Thank you for visiting and following!

I'm fine with minor flaws in a book as well, Christina. It fuels conversations I have with my friends!

That's a great answer, Christina. I find in my reviews I seem to be character focused. If I don't like any of the characters in a story, I can't read it. I have to like at least one, lol.

Happy Birthday!!

Nice answer! If only I answered a cross of the two choices.

In a perfect world, we would have both, right? This was a super hard question for me. Hopefully, all books we read will have both great writing and characters/plot! I'm a new follower. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment
