Book Blogger Hop #12 and Follow Friday #7

It's the first week of 2011, and the Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday are back! The first Hop of the New Year has begun =]

Book Blogger Hop
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy For Books.

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

My answer: Well, no book has really changed my life... I suppose, and I'm not shamed to say it, that Twilight by Stephenie Meyer sort of influenced my life, because when I first read it, it inspired me to read more, and because I read Twilight, I've discovered so many more great books, full of awesome characters and exciting plots. It's not that I didn't read before that, because I did, but not as much. So, in that way, Twilight influenced me, but didn't really change my life... But then again, if I hadn't read it, I wouldn't have made this blog, and wouldn't have met all you awesome people out there! So I'm glad I did. =]

Follow Friday is hosted by ParaJunkee at ParaJunkee's View

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

My answer: Ooh, there are so many answers to that question... I've been reading people's 2011 Debut Author Challenge posts, and finding all the books on their lists, and so now I've got some great books to buy that are by debut authors this year, and I'm so excited to read them! There are too many books and blogs to list though :L

    I had the same answer for the book that influenced me and for the same reasons! LOL! You know what they say about great minds!

  11. 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!

  18. I chose Twilight, too! It was one of the first books where I interacted with others, complete strangers, on various plot points. It brought in a whole new element to reading.

  19. I can agree Twilight did start me really getting into reading. Nice blog by the way! I'm new a follower

REVIEW: It's A Wrap by Perdita and Honor Cargill

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising...  Read on for why I enjoyed this so much!  Title:  It's A Wrap  Author:  Perdita and Honor Cargill Series:   Waiting For Callback, #3 Pages:   351 Publisher:  Simon and Schuster Date of Publication:  31st May, 2018 Source:  Author Synopsis from Goodreads: Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever! Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in t
