Follow Me Friday (12) & Blogger Hop!

Photobucket

Follow Me Friday is a fun book meme hosted by the fabulous Parajunkee over at Parajunkee's View. Have a book blog? You can play with us too! Just visit Parajunkee's site at the link above-- be sure you are a follower of her blog and the blog she is featuring for the week, put your name in the Linky, create your own FF post on your blog, and then start commenting and following whomever you wish!

This week's Follow Friday question:
Talk about the book that most changed or influenced your life (was it a book that turned you from an average to an avid reader, did it help you deal with a particularly difficult situation, does it bring you comfort every time you read it?).

Hmmmm... this is a tough one! I have been an avid reader ever since I can remember, and I guess the book-- or the series actually-- that started my love for reading was Little House On the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder. OH MY GOSH I was OBSESSED. I used to read the books all the time, watch the old TV series, my Grandma sewed me dresses and bonnets that I always used to wear... I even went to a summer camp thing at a one-room school house when I was 10 where we got to dress up and pretend to be characters from the 1800's! So, I wouldn't say this series changed my life or anything, but it definitely brings me back to some early, cherished memories of my first-loved books.

  8. Never read Litte House on the Prairie but I did read Farm Boy or something like that and it was pretty good.

    Happy Friday from Lydia @ Sensual Ride and my FF's at http://sensualride.blogspot.com/2011/08/friday-memes.html

  9. I love the Little House books, but never got into Rose's series. Harry Potter has the awesome factor, but the series that got me into reading (and shows my age) is The Belgariad, by David Eddings. THAT series made me the reader I am.

  20. Although I didn't love WITHER, I definitely plan on reading FEVER. I'm hoping DeStefano fleshes out her dystopian world a lot more, since it really is a very intriguing idea.

    Glad to have found you via the Hop!

  26. LC, hey there! I am such an LOTR movie nerd too. The extended editions are bomb-diggity!I've hosted a few marathon shin-digs, they were epic. :)

    I LOVED, LOVED, Little House on the Prairie. I didn't read the books but I used to watch it when I was home "sick" from school all the time.
    That is great you actually wore the the bonnets and dresses. Adorable.

    I haven't read Wither yet but it's near the top of my TBR pile. I'be heard nothing but great things and I love the cover of both her books. Gorgeous. Have a wonderful weekend and I'm sure I'll be popping up around here soon, I'm sure
