Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday

Book Blogger Hop
The Crazy for books prompt today is what arc am I dreaming about currently?

This is a hard question. Currently I am really looking forward to reading Pegasus II by Robin Mckinley but it doesn't come out till next year. I'd love an arc of the next book by Jessica Day George, Tuesday's at the Castle. So, yes. I guess I am in a fairy tale fantasy mood this morning.


This week I am going to do Follow my book blog Friday too! Yea, I am being more social! If you can call blogging social.
They asked what is one book that really affected or changed your life?
I have read many books that have made me think and put me on a new direction in my life, but I got to say the Fiction book that has impacted me the most has got to by Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. I read it in high school and it was one of those path changing books. I was inspired by the tale of Frodo the hobbit, and it was the first book I remember reading where I REALLY wondered how the author was going to pull of a happy ending. Which made Frodo's victory even sweeter still. Lord of the Rings changed how I looked at life and inspired my love for fiction that has resonance (as Dave Farland calls it). It also inspired me to write my own stories. 

 Welcome visitors! Please Follow and have an awesome weekend!

As much as a LOTR movie lover I am, I still haven't sat down and read the books. I do have them, but just haven't cracked them. Sigh...

Here's my FF answer.

I still haven't read LOTR! I know! I own them, intending on reading them, but I just haven't had time. I know I will within the next couple of years because they're the kind of books you have to read at least once in your life. Great pick!

Here's my FF!

The Lord of the Rings is popular today! I have seen the movies but never read the books. I have a hard time reading a book if I see the movie first, so I always try to read the books first.

Hopping through. New follower! I'm ashamed to say that I haven't been able to finish LOTR. Now that I like fantasy better, I should try it again.
