Book Hop (5) & Follow Friday (6)

Book Blogger Hop

"What book influenced or changed your life? How did it influence/change you?"

Well, that's kind of a hard question for me since I've never read one that has dramatically changed my life, but I like to think of each book I read as life changing or influences me. Some more than other's, like If I stay by Gayle Foreman, Before I fall by Lauren Oliver, and Looking for Alaska by John Green (mainly books about life and death). I have really bad depression and don't take pills for it because I have my friends who lifts me up whenever it hits, but whenever they aren't around or can't help, I just crack open a book and start reading and when i'm finished I feel better. Depending on what the book is about sometimes it opens my eyes to a completely different world for a split second or a day. I guess what i'm saying is everybook influences or changes my life, since most of the books I read (that aren't paranormal) helps me when the time comes to a situation that i've read about before. It makes me stop and think more about the outcomes and ect.

What book(s) have you discovered lately from someone's book blog?

hmm.. I would have to say mainly books that aren't out yet or just came out, like Clarity by Kim Harrington, Fixing Delilah by Sarah Oakler, and some others I can't think of right now.

  8. I'm your newest follower from the blog hop,
    so please, when you get a chance could you follow me back?


  9. Hey! Thanks for stopping by, we're following back. :) Love your site. And Clarity looks good!

  10. 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 –

    Happy Book Blogger Hop Day!

  11. Hi Bellamay!

    "Depending on what the book is about sometimes it opens my eyes to a completely different world for a split second or a day."

    I have to say that's probably the most authentic answer I've read for this hop and I hope that we can all adopt that attitude when reading. Great answer!

    I'm a new follower now! Please take some time and stop by my blog. Follow me back if you like!

  12. I'm glad to know that you can find solace in books. If, however, you feel your depression deepening be sure to talk to a trusted person that can hep you get additional help. Thanks for your candid and honest answer.

  13. Hopping through. I love how you spoke of books that opened your eyes to a different world for awhile. Very well thought out.
    Happy weekend!
