This week's question:
What book(s) have you discovered lately from someone's book blog?

I've learned about several books lately by looking over the 2011 Debut Author Challenge titles and Kristi's Books to Pine for feature over at The Story Siren.
Here are some of them that I might not have noticed (at least not for a while) otherwise, with Goodreads links:

Wildefire by Karsten Knight
Luminous by Dawn Metcalf
Siren's Storm by Lisa Papademetriou
Dark Mirror by M.J. Putney

This week's question:
What book influenced/changed your life?  How did it influence/change you?

I don't know if I can think of a book that did not change my life or influence me in some way!

Welcome to all of the new faces, and welcome back to the old ones!
Here is what has been happening on my blog this week:

  10. 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!

    I feel the same way about books, they change me, even a little bit.
    Also, Luminous looks really pretty!

  15. Luminous cover looks so amazing. I have a hard time picking high-fantasy so I get a lot of ideas from other bloggers. Good answer!


  16. Books can really leave a mark in our lives. To read what that book is in my life, come visit me at Clandestine Sanctuary.

    Dropping by via the hop. I am a old follower. Have a great weekend!

  17. 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

  18. Hi,
