Follow Friday

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?). 

The book that got my into reading was The Lightening Thief by Rich Riordan. I wasn't much of a reader up until then and when I started that book, I couldn't put it down!!! It is partly thanks to Riordan that I am a book blogger now. =)

While you're here, check out my Blogoversary Giveaway! I have 4 pretty awesome prize packs up for grabs!!

    New follower! (:

    btw: you're an IB student! that's awesome!
    I got invited for it too but then decided against it (if I chose IB I would have had to do an extra year of high school and since I was gonna be in med school I decided I should graduate HS as fast as I could!) but I had tons of IB friends (:

  12. The Percy Jackson series is awesome! The Lightning Thief is probably my favorite of all Rick Riordan's book, though I liked the Lost Hero. Thanks for dropping by my blog and following earlier! Happy hopping and happy reading from an old follower. :)

    Eek! I love Percy Jackson! Well, I love all of Riordan's books to be honest, I'm in love with the Kane Chronicles and the Lost Hero!

    Here's my FF too, I wish I had included Riordan's too, since it got me into mythical books as well.

  23. Hi, Bailey! HJappy belated Friday! Haven't visited in a while, but I'm an 'old' follower.

    I've seen this book in bookstores, but haven't read it yet. And, I've heard so much about it that it's now going into my TBR pile!

    Thanks for the recommendation! : )

    Come on over and check out my FF post:
