Both Follow Friday & TGIF have basically the same question, which is:
Q. Talk about the book that most changed or influenced your life (was it a book that turned you from an average to avid reader, did it help you deal with a particularly difficult situation, does it bring you comfort every time you read it?).
Taking it Personal: Which books have effected you on a personal level and lingered in your mind long after you closed the pages?
I just answered these when I was a featured blogger at The Book Base. Here were my answers.
I actually wasn’t a big reader growing up. I really liked the Choose Your Own Adventure books, especially The Secret of 13. I also really liked a short story called End of the Game by Julio Cortazar, although I forgot about it until I read his short stories again in college.
But the book that converted me to reading was The Hunger Games. I had to read a lot of things for school that I didn’t like or couldn’t relate to. THG was the first series that reminded me reading could be fun, with characters that thought or acted like I would. And now I’m hooked.
week's Blogger Hop question is:
“What is the one ARC you would love to get your hands on right now?”
That's an easy one. Lola and The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. I've seen a few reviews and everyone seems to like it even more than Anna and The French Kiss. And I really liked Anna. I can't wait to read it!
What would you like to read? Happy Friday!
