Follow Friday & Blogger Hop (08/04/11)

It's Follow Friday!

This is my Follow Friday post, a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee!

This week's question: 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?).  
My Answer:  When I was little I was in and out of the library everyday, but eventually I "grew up" and reading got away from me. Then the preview for Twilight came on my TV screen and I saw that it was based on a book. I watched Twilight the movie and the next week I had ordered the box set off of Amazon and read it in a week. A fire was started and I started reading every vampire book I could get my hands on and continued on this way until I branched off and became the diverse reader I am today.

It is also time for the Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Crazy-For-Books!

Today's Book Blogger Question: “What is the one ARC you would love to get your hands on right now?”
My Answer: There are so many, but from the top of my head, one I really, really want is The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab.

The Twilight Saga was the series that first got me hooked onto reading, too! I used to only read once in a while when I went to the library, but now I'm always reading whenever I possibly can -- all because I picked up that first book when it came out! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have an awesome weekend!
