Today’s FF 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?).
Answer: The answer I normally give for this can be found in my about section. It’s about reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (when it was first published) and how it helped me get through my mom’s breast cancer diagnosis.
But…I have mentioned that story a few times, so I’m going to list another awesome book moment. I remember so clearly reading Natalie Babbit’s Tuck Everlasting.
For some reason, I really connected with the book and how it described what it would be like to live forever. One reason why it stuck with me is probably because it’s so realistic of how that actually might go down.
Although it wasn’t anything truly life-altering, I remember falling in love with books a little bit more after reading this novel. If you haven’t already read it, I highly recommend it. It’s timeless. The movie? It’s good but is made truly redeemable by Joshua Jackson.
