Book Blogger Hop #5 and Feature & Follow Friday #4

Book Blogger Hop

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer at Crazy For Books. This week’s question: Shatter Me

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

I’d love to get my hands on Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee

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?). ?

I can’t really think of a book that completely changed my life because I read so many that impact on me from day to day. But the book that I could read over and over and it will always boost my literary appreciation is Pride and Prejudice. Perhaps it is the strong-willed, stubborn Elizabeth Bennett and the arrogant pompous Mr Darcy who grow and soften in this story which brings me comfort 🙂

Feel free to leave your answers in the comments section below and I will return the favour by stopping by your blog too!

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂
    I still haven’t read Pride and Prejudice! I’m such a bad bookworm.. I did watch the movie with Keira though, and always ALWAYS wanted to see the BBC televisation with Colin Firth. And Mansfield Park, that’s a nice story. I read Northanger Abbey though. I did like it at the time and planning to read Sense and Sensibility soon 🙂 So, not too bad a bookworm I hope? ^^


  2. Shatter Me! That one is another I need asap.

    I love Pride and Prejudice! I almost went with one of the classics for my answer, but couldn’t decide which one.

    Thanks for stopping by mine!


  3. I’ve heard a lot about Shatter Me lately, I secretly call it the Wedding Dress book (because that’s what the cover looks like to me), but still, good luck getting it!!

    Oh and P & P is a great pick!! 😀

    And I’m going to go check out the giveaway.


  4. Great choice for shatter me! I’d like to get my hands on a copy too.

    Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite reads of all time, 🙂 Mr. Darcy, swoon.

  8. Fantastic answer! I find I am constantly affected by the books that I read on a day to day basis but always find myself coming back to the same few for comfort.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to visit me at Hands and Home! Have a fantastic weekend and happy reading!
