Follow Friday [3]

 
It's that time of the week we all love... Follow Friday!
a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison at Alison Can Read (:
 
 
This week's question:
 
Q. 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?).
 
 
A book that changed my life (and still does it) is of course The Bible.
 
And a book that influenced me,
well that would be The Mediator series by Meg Cabot.
Before I read that series, I read a lot of books BUT when I read the Mediator, I fell in love with books.
 
It opened my eyes to this world called Young Adult literature. I didn't know teenagers could be so cool, and that someone might go through the same stuff as me. I was a goner, those books changed my perception of life. I re-read them all the time.
 
 I particularly remember when the swine flu chaos started...
I was in Mexico at the time (where it was supposed to had originated) so the goverment made everyone stay at home for a week, trying to stop the virus from spreading,
I remember staying in my room all the time, reading those books and thinking "well, if I'm gonna die, at least I'll go happy" (:
 


I even had some dreams where I was kissing Jesse



(Major Character aka HOTTEST MAN NOT ALIVE) and in my dreams we were wearing surgical masks, kinda like this:
