Book Blogger Hop (January 7-10)

     I had to go back to school this week which really put a cramp on my reading time. What a tragedy, I know, but I shall live anyway! I have a few new reviews coming up (eventually, because we all know I have trouble with being on time) for the lovely books I was able to read over my Christmas break. I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday season!
Book Blogger Hop

Question of the Week:
     What book influenced or changed your life? How did it influence/change you?
     Honestly, I think that just about every book I read affects me in some way. Books tend to leave their mark behind and even the seemingly inconsequential ones make a difference, however small.
     Probably some of the more influential books I've read include Blue by Lou Aronica (review coming in February), Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult. All of these books were so powerful. They spoke to me in a way that other books aren't necessarily capable of. One thing in particular that the above mentioned books have in common is that they all made me realize how short life is. I think I appreciate some of the more mundane aspects of life because of them.

     What books had an impact on your life?

I have to say, I feel the same way as you about influential books. I think that every book influences you in some way or another, no matter how small or insignificant it is! So, good answer! : ) Please stop by my blog to check out mine!
