Book Blogger Hop: August 5-8 & FF (29) & TGIF (12)

Book Blogger Hop 
 Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books and is an awesome way to for book bloggers to interact and find each other. Such a wonderful idea! There's a new question every week that all the participating blogs have to answer.

This week's question is:
“What is the one ARC you would love to get your hands on right now?”

My Answer: I would love to read 'Crossed' by Ally Condie - I've been looking forward to it ever since I read 'Matched' back in March. 

Follow Friday

Follow Friday is an opportunity to discover and follow other book related blogs! Want to join? Check it out atParajunkee.

This week's question feature is
Bonnie @ Hands and Home

Q. Talk about the 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: The book that most influenced me would have to be 'The Animals of Farthing Wood' by Colin Dann

 I read it when I was about 11 and that was the first time i really thought about wildlife as a real living thing that needs protecting. The book starts with the animals home being destroyed and then goes through their journey to find a new home. I remember crying throughout as some of the animals got lost or killed. It had me thinking for a long time after and I did a cake sale at school to raise money for the local wildlife fund. I still love the book and fall in love with the animals all over again. Absolutely fantastic! :D

This Friday's Question: 
Taking it Personal: Which books have effected you on a personal level and lingered in your mind long after you closed the pages?


My Answer: This is basically the same question as Follow Friday, so I'm going to be lazy and say just look at the answer above. :D

 Happy Hopping, have a great weekend everyone!!!
