Time for another bookish question from Deb at Booking Through Thursday :
What’s more important: Good writing? Or a good story?
(Of course, a book should have BOTH, but…)
Yes, too right a book should have BOTH! As all regular readers of this blog know, I’m not a fan of choices like this… It’s almost like having to choose between flour or fluid when baking!
I think I’d have to say good writing, though. Good writing can lift a feeble story; and a good story can be ruined by bad writing.
PS. Here’s a link to my recent review of a book that had BOTH:
