It’s been two weeks since our last hop, but today we’re reemerging from our antisocial shell!!! To prove our sincerity, we’re going to be adding a second meme to our list of Friday shenanegans – Follow Friday.
Secondly, we’d like to thank the overall book blogging community for two reads: The Book Thief and The Hunger Games. Both books were excellent and the many great review inspired us to remove these from our TBR pile. Thanks everyone!
Blog Hop: What book influenced or changed your life? How did it influence / change you?
Wow, deep question for this week. The obvious answer for us would be the Bible, but in our fiction world there are so many books that have impacted us in small ways. To Kill a Mockingbird was the first book to show us the power of literature. I Capture the Castle helped us understand that it’s okay for a book to conclude without a super-happy ending (although we did grieve for about 2 months). Bag of Bones was the first book to show us that forgiving people in the fiction world is just as difficult as it is in the real world. There are probably 27 other novels we’d like to add, but we realize it’s important not to put our readers to sleep...
