Hop and Follow

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison at Alison Can Read
This week's question: 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'd have to say the books that influenced me were R.L.Stine's books. When I was a kid those were the books that got me hooked. Once I'd picked up one I couldn't wait to finish the next one.

This week's question: “What is the one ARC you would love to get your hands on right now?”
That's easy....I want the new Cat and Bones by Jeaniene Frost: ONE GRAVE AT A TIME

One Grave at a Time (Night Huntress, #6)Having narrowly averted an (under)world war, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans' voodoo queen just keeps on giving--leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit.
Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive. This year, however, a determined Cat and Bones must risk all to send him back to the other side of eternity--forever. But how do you kill a killer who's already long dead?

    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?

  7. A popular choice this week. One month and one day from today's hop, the book I'm highlighting comes out. Come see which book I'm talking about.

  8. I love the interesting answers everyone has for the book that changed them! R. L. Stine was (is!) so hugely popular and it really brought a lot of reluctant readers firmly into the reading camp. Books that can do that are like gold!

    Thanks for stopping by to see me!
