Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. It's a great way to meet new blogger friends!
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?).
Ok so for this weeks Follow Friday I picked two books, both for kind of the same reason.
Firstly the Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling, I chose this series not just for the books but the fanfic's which have been written about the books. For some reason as a child I never really read the books, but enjoyed the film and around the age of 11 started reading Harry Potter fanfics (the beginning of my reading obsession), after I made my way through the majority of Fanfics I moved onto reading stories online about vampires.... this then leads to the second book I'm going to talk about...
The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer, when I heard that there was going to be a vampire film I was hugely excited and started reading the books, this then slowly got me reading much more, and often until I read whenever I could. I really enjoy re-reading Twilight and Eclipse because they both take me back to the time when reading an actual book was strange and magically to me.
