Lets have a little fun!
Welcome to this week's Book Blogger Hop hosted by Jennifer at Crazy For Books. This week's question is:
"What book influenced or changed your life? How did it influence/change you?"
It's so hard to pick just one! There are so many great books out there! So after going back in my memory bank I will have to choose IT by Stephen King. I read it in high school and I was immediately scarred for life and will forever be terrified of clowns!
Has anyone else had this experience reading his books??
Leave a comment, become a follower and you will be entered in a Mug of Moxie Giveaway "Down With Clowns" for a copy of this terrifying book. If your not scared of clowns you soon will be!


  1. I think it's so funny that you chose a book that scarred you and made you terrified of clowns! So many people are talking about books that got them back into reading so when I got to yours I had to laugh because it's so awesome. :)

    I'm a new follower! Have a great weekend.

  2. Hopping by to say Hi! *waves* Following back too! Nice to see you at my blog. Thank you!

  3. Ha! I like that you chose this book. I actually like this book, and have read it more than once. However, Dreamcatcher scared the snot out of me.... I got partway through and just closed it, and returned it to the library, never to pick it up again.

    Old follower, just visiting to say Happy Hopping!!

  4. Hello there! Hopping by! I love the answers to this week’s question.
    I have a huge prize pack giveaway at the blog. A contest reminder is included in my book blogger hop post. I hope you drop by!
    Here’s my post.

    Have a nice weekend!

  5. Your newest follower!

    I've never read that book, so enter me so I can be scared of clowns!

  6. I'm already a follower! I'd love to be entered. I am not afraid of clowns yet...


  7. 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 –

    Happy Book Blogger Hop Day!

    PS - I'm already a follower in GFC :D

  9. Clowns terrify me - ever since that book!!! They always kinda freaked me out, but after that!!! I would still like to win and try out someone else's clown story. Thanks for hosting.

  10. Thanks for hopping by. Interesting direction to take the question...what book kept me up at night and made me afraid of the dark!

  11. When I read Outlander, it got me motivated to read again. I've been reading like a madwoman ever since.

    And I'm already scared of clowns just from watching Poltergeist as a kid. lol!

  13. I've never read IT, but the mini series is freaky!

    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!


  14. I love, love, love this book. IT is one of my fav SK books. IT scared my young son at the time the movie came out. Not sure that he has ever watched the whole thing.
