This week's question from the Hop : What is the one ARC you would love to get your hands on right now?
Hmm ... not sure if this qualifies, seeing Retribution being promoted everywhere really makes me want to read the book, especially I love the Dark-Hunter series.

This week's question from the Friday Follow : 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?).
My pick would be Pollyanna. This was the first book that had me crying buckets. What I really love about Pollyanna is how she's always looking for a silver lining. This is something very hard to practice in real life but everything I read it, I feel inspired to follow this philosophy.

Since I last hopped ...
New blogs I'm following :

  3. I remember reading Pollyana when I was very young, but I don't remember the actual story. I can relate to the emotion you felt though! That's what my FF is about this week too! Great pick!

    Here's my FF!

    As with just about everything else, most people will be startled to learn which
    ARC I’m looking forward to the most.

    Shocked, possibly.

    So what’s the next ARC I’m looking forward to the most? The one I can’t stop thinking about?
    The one that gives me sweaty palms?
