Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee.
This week's question: Talk about the book that most changed or influenced your life (was it a book that turned you into an average to avid readers, did it help you deal with a very difficult situation, does it bring you comfort every time you read it?)
First, I want to give the Twilight saga the credit for introducing me to the YA world. If I wasn't momentarily addicted to that series, I wouldn't have known that there are books that would influence who I am and my life. It was truly just after that series that I began reading and searching for good YA books. Another book that affected me greatly was The Book Thief by Mark Zusak. For some reason I thought about it for weeks and it even made me read several articles on the internet about the Holocaust. It was also because of The Book Thief that I started to appreciate Historical fiction books. I can't really choose a book or two and there's just so many books that influenced me, so I'll throw in The Hunger Games Trilogy and The Mortal Instruments series too. Those are all-time faves that have affected my obsession with YA books. :)
