Book Blogger Hop for Jan. 7 to 10

Book Blogger Hop
This week's question comes from Ivan who blogs at Ivan Bookworm:

"What book influenced or changed your life? How did it influence/change you?"

This is a tough one to answer. When I was young, Judy Blume opened up a whole new venue of books at a time in my life when I was young and naive. Now, in my early 40's, I rediscovered my love of reading with the help of Diana Gabaldon and her amazing OUTLANDER series. This book opened up a whole new window upon the world for me. I am now interested in a whole new time and place in history. And once again, I have rekindled my love for reading. So what book has altered your life?

  4. I remember reading Judy Blume when I was younger and generally being weirded out by some of the things in her books. I'm sure if I read them now I would see them differently!

  7. Aloha!

    Thanks for hopping by my blog and following. I did the same. :D

    Judy Blume, huh? If I remember right, she wrote 'The Fourth Grade Nothing' and Superfudge' I liked those books. Although, when I was younger I read R.L. Stine books mostly. :D

  12. This is a lovely answer, being honest a book has never changed something in my life for more than a few weeks but this sounds like it really changed what you like for a long time! =)

  13. Mandy, thanks for stopping by my blog and becoming my newest follower! I forgot how much I loved Judy Blume when I was young. I remember our third grade teacher reading, Are You There God, It's Me, Margaret to us. I went through a period when I started a new job where I just stopped reading and it's so good to find something that brings you back.

  14. Now that someone just mentioned it, Judy Blume books are on my life-changing list. I guess I have to check out the Outlander series.

  15. The Outlander series is on my TBR list. I really want to read it. I never read Judy Blume. My mom wouldn't let me. I've always wondered why.

  16. I was very interested to see how much you liked the Outlander series...I have never read any of these books, and I'm not sure why, as I can't recall reading a bad review of one.
