Friday Blog Hops 8/5

It's Friday, so it's time for the weekly blog hops! Again, I'm really sorry for the lack of blog posts, I'm very busy lately, but I'll try to get more up soon!

Follow Friday is hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee's View and Alison at Alison Can Read! This week's question:

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 Harry Potter series definitely influenced me to become an avid reader, it was the first series that I fell in love with. I probably could also say that the Twilight series influenced me even more, but when I read Harry Potter, is where it all started. After I finished reading the series, I read more often which helped me to become an avid reader today. So, I would say the Harry Potter series for me.

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen over at Crazy-for-Books.

What is the one ARC you would love to get your hands on right now?

Hm, I really want to get The Beginning of After by Jennifer Castle. It looks really good, and I have been wanting to read it for some time now. If anyone's read it yet, tell me your thoughts about it in the comments!

Tgif is hosted by Ginger over at GReads! Here's this week'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?

I would have to say books like Hold Still by Nina LaCour and Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers, were on my mind long after I finished reading them. Books with these topics always stay in my mind and get a few tears out of me. I just get really emotional when I read books like that, but I'm pretty sure many people do, so I'm not alone!

Thanks to everyone for stopping by, commenting, or following! I really appreciate it!
