Follow Friday

Today's Follow Friday is hosted by Bonnie at Parajunkee's View.

This week's question: Talk about a 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: Honestly, there are so many books out there that have changed and/or influenced my life. For this week's answer I will have to name my TOP 3 books since I can't choose between them. The first is being the EPIC adventures of Mr. Harry Potter. I think pretty much every single person in the entire universe fell in love with Rowling's magicial adventures and the whole of my childhood revolved around this one series. Since the last movie came out . . . it has ended my childhood. Such sad - but good - memories.

The second book that changed my life would be my favourite sassy heroine Miss Nancy Drew. I'm a hardcore Nancy Drew fan and again this was apart of my childhood and even today I still remain a HUGE fan. I own a lot and I mean A LOT of Nancy Drew books and she's well . . . a legend. Really.

And lastly, Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series. Seriously, where would I be without this series? It's beyond amazing and completely changed my outlook on vampires. Richelle Mead is a legend and she's of many authors that have inspired me to become a writer also. Anyway, I'm looking forward to reading her spin-off series BLOODLINES.

So, what do you think?

What books have changed your life?

Have a great weekend you guys!


  1. Very nice answers. Like them a lot. Sounds very good. Old follower. Love your header.

  2. Happy Friday! Old follower here! Harry Potter is a great choice -- from looking around other people's blogs, it seems the series has influenced a lot of people, which is great!

  3. This kind of question is never complete without Harry Potter somewhere in the answer! <3 I love the impact this series had on our chldhoods - I can't imagine growing up without it. (By the way, did you sign up for Pottermore?).

    Sadly I've never read a Nancy Drew novel, I know, I know, don't hit me!! And yes to Vampire Academy!! Freaking love that series :D

  4. Grace: Thanks Grace!

    Jinny: Harry Potter is always a great choice!

    Brodie: LOL. Agreed. Nope I haven't signed up for Pottermore. Wasn't really interested in doing that I'm afraid. :) Anyway, HOW COULD YOU NOT HAVE READ A NANCY DREW NOVEL?! *goes into shock*

  5. I also chose Harry Potter. It is incredible how many have been affected by Rowling's series.
    Here's my HOP for this week.

  6. Absolutely!

    Can't wait to read more of what you post!

  7. Lauren: Harry Potter was probably everyone's choice. But that's no surprise. Everyone was affected by Rowling's powerful spell.

    Coranne: Thanks!

  8. I LOVE Richelle Mead's VA series!! =D =D Sooo good. And her new series is just as good, at least from what I can tell from the first book, Bloodlines. =)

    New follower!!

    Here's my FF!

  10. Hopping through. I'm a huge Vampire Academy fan. I loved Bloodlines. Maybe even more than VA.
