Hopin' Away

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer over at Crazy For Books

Question of the Week: "What book influenced or changed your life? How did it influence/change you?"

I have read lots of books that have changed my opinion on something or have influenced me but as of recently I read one that brought up so many questions for me. If I Stay by Gayle Forman...It truly does show that life can be cut short, it can end in an instant. It kept proving to me that I need to live every day to its fullest and that I need to relax. Sometimes I stress about the silliest things and its pointless. Why bring more worry into my life if it isn't needed? And upon reading the book I kept asking myself "If I were in the same situation, would I stay?"

Question of the Week: What book(s) have you discovered lately from someone's book blog?

Oh Gosh, there are so many! I have discovered so many fantastic books thanks to book blogs but one that I have discovered somewhat recently was REVOLUTION by Jennifer Donnelly. By far my favourite book of 2010. I was lucky enough to receive a review copy for it and I just fell in love with the book after reading the first page.



I am currently having a giveaway on my blog. I am giving away an arc copy of Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly. Check out my right sidebar to sign up. Good Luck!

Happy Hoping! I love comments, so keep em' coming! And be sure to leave your link so I can follow back!

  2. I know you recommended Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly to read but I haven't had a chance to read it yet! Now, I'm going to have to read If I Stay as well. Sounds like a good read! I had a hard time answering this weeks Book Blogger Hop question. I hope you'll stop by and read my answer! : )

  7. This will probably come of something as a surprise but the book that changed/influenced my life (more than any other) is a non-fiction book. I know we all focus on novels and the fanciful fiction we love to read but The Four Work Week is the book that gets all the credit. I know the title sounds fictional but it really isn’t. Hop over to my blog and find out why – http://www.howardsherman.net

    Happy Book Blogger Hop Day!
