Blog Hop ~ FF Friday ~ 08/04

Every Friday,  Parajunkee hosts Follow my Book Blog Friday! So welcome to another stop on this hop!

It's fairly simple- follow the hosting blog, the feature blog, and then use the links to discover new blogs to follow! And if someone follows you, be kind and follow back! It's a fun way to find new bloggers to read :)

Featured Blogger for this week is Bonnie @ Hands and Home





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?).

This is actually difficult for me to answer. It was probably Number the Stars by Lois Lowry, because it was the book that introduced me to the Holocaust and once I learned about that I was fascinated and disturbed at the same time. I was 10 at the time, so I hadn't realized just how evil hate could be and that humans could do that to other people.

I've yet to read a book that deals with the Holocaust, not even the Diary of Anne Frank. I've learned and heard so much about it, I'm really quite afraid. It just saddens me so much that such atrocities happened.

I remember reading that book when I was 12. I also loved reading the Diary of Anne Frank. I sort of had a strange interest in the Holocaust. It really opened my eyes to pain and suffering in the world that made no sense to me - but most of the time, it doesn't make sense.

I'm a new follower! Happy Friday!

Hopping through. Number the Stars was one of my fav books as a kid. I also loved The Upstairs Room by Johanna Reiss.

I remember reading Number the Stars. It really made me think, while a lot of the other books I was reading were just for fun.

I'm a NEW Follower! Come on over to my blog to see which books and authors I mentioned!
