Book Blogger Hop

Wow, my question was chosen for this week's hop!


Book Blogger Hop

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

I'm 16 and I'm not old. Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book, somehow influence my daily life and sight for the future. In the book, main character: Bod, lives with his ghosts guardians. He can do what ever he wants in the graveyard. He has a lot of adventures. Until one day, the time to leave his ghost parents and guardians, had arrived. From the moment I finished reading the book, I made my everyday life a little bit more challenging and cherishing every moment. Because one day, when I get older, I will need to live on my own with my new family. 

So these days, I want to treasure every moment I have with the parents, sibling, and friends. I want to enjoy the remaining time where we are together EVERYDAY. Because even we can still see each other in the future, it's not already everyday. We need to make a living so we will be very busy. 

These moments will be in my heart forever.

  5. That is a great lesson to learn while you're still young. I do my best to appreciate each day, and I have to say it's enhanced my life a great deal over the years. I honestly believe it has left me with fewer regrets.

  11. This will probably come of something as a surprise but the book that changed/influenced my life (more than any other) is a non-fiction book. I know we all focus on novels and the fanciful fiction we love to read but The Four Work Week is the book that gets all the credit. I know the title sounds fictional but it really isn’t. Hop over to my blog and find out why – http://www.howardsherman.net

    Happy Book Blogger Hop Day!

  13. Ivan,

    Your answer dazzles me... and definitely has me wanting to search for this book. Thanks so much for asking us bloggers such a great question! I really enjoyed mulling over that one... I mean, reading should hit home with The Reader in some way, am I right? It's so nice to see books actually impact people in huge ways!

  15. Diana Gabaldon's "OUTLANDER" did it for me. I cannot stop reading since I read her books last October. She is the reason why I started blogging about books. Have a super weekend. I am your newest follower. Come and visit me at www.mandysescape.blogspot.com

  16. Very well thought out answer! Your description of the book makes me want to move it up on my 'to read' list.

    I ended up choosing Twilight because it was one of the first books that I interacted with strangers about. (More on my blog!)

    Have a good week!
