Hop Day!



So Follow my Blog Friday is a meme held by Parajunkee and it's where you answer the weekly question and then link yourself and you go and check out other blogs of your interest.

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 Night World Books by LJ Smith changed me from an average reader to a book lover. The Hunger Games however, really made me stop and think about how lucky am to live where I live and be as free as I am.


Book Blogger HopBook Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy For Books made to help showcase your blog to other bloggers out there with the same interests!

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

Vanish by Sophie Jordan. I quite enjoyed the first book, Firelight and I cannot wait for the release of this sequel.

  8. LOVE the Hunger games...J.L Smith is very good, but I found her a little late in the game...a bit before all the fame from the tv show...I read secret circle first...but good choices!

  22. Hi! New follower here! I LOVE the Night World series!!! L.J. Smith is one of my favorite authors. As for The Hunger Games and Vanish, I have of course heard a lot about them, but haven't yet gotten into them. I will, hopefully... my TBR pile is just as humongous as everyone else's probably is! Lol.

    Thanks for sharing! LOVE your blog!! : )

  23. The Hunger Games was so good. All the dystopian books make me feel lucky to live in the world I live in, although I think I am better prepared for disaster now! LOL. Friday Post!
