Follow Friday/Blog Hops



Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee. It's a great way to meet new blogger friends. This weeks question 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?).

The first Harry Potter book. It renewed my love of reading and I am forever thankful for it. JK Rowling created something really magical, and I can't wait to see what she does next.

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy For Books. It's a great way to meet new people and friends around the blogworld!

Q “What is the one ARC you would love to get your hands on right now?”

There is one that I gladly do almost anything (keyword is ALMOST) for. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. I loved Anna and the French Kiss so much and have been waiting very impatiently to read LOLA.

Happy weekend and Happy reading!

  1. Harry Potter!!! I didn't get into it until maybe the 5th book came out because it was more my bother's thing and he didn't like sharing....but I loved it too!! Great pick!

  2. The Harry Potter books have a special place in my heart as well. I think the one I enjoyed reading the most was book three.

  4. Harry Potter is a great choice! I think it sparked something in a lot of people and I LOVED seeing all the kids with the HP books.

    Shocked, possibly.

  9. Hey, I'm a new follower!

    Great picks!

    I love Harry Potter (who doesn't) and I loved Anna and the French Kiss so I'm really excited about Lola and the boy next door too!

    Did you know the paperback edition of Anna has the first chapter of Lola at the back? I think it just came out this week.

  10. Harry Potter is great, it really made me love books more!

    I hope you're able to get a copy of Lola... I still totally would have sent you mine if I'd known. ;)

  15. Lola and the Boy Next Door seems to be on a lot of people's lists, so I am betting it has to be a good one. Have a great weekend.

I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
