This week's question at Parajunkee's View:

Q: Talk about a book that most changed or influenced your life (was it a book that turned you from an average reader to an avid reader, did it help you deal with a particular difficult situation, does it bring you comfort every time you read it)?

Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer and Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. Hands down! They both made me realize that I shouldn't take life for granted as it could be changed in an instance.

This week's question at Crazy for Books:

Q: What is the one ARC you are dying to get your hands on right now?

Ahhhh, the list is endless! I guess if I HAD to choose one, it would probably be The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe. I'm not sure if ARCs are out yet, but I do want to snag one ^_^ ♥

It starts with an itch you just can't shake. Then comes a fever and a tickle in your throat. A few days later, you'll be blabbing your secrets and chatting with strangers like they’re old friends. Three more, and the paranoid hallucinations kick in.
And then you're dead.
When a deadly virus begins to sweep through sixteen-year-old Kaelyn’s community, the government quarantines her island—no one can leave, and no one can come back.
Those still healthy must fight for dwindling supplies, or lose all chance of survival. As everything familiar comes crashing down, Kaelyn joins forces with a former rival and discovers a new love in the midst of heartbreak. When the virus starts to rob her of friends and family, she clings to the belief that there must be a way to save the people she holds dearest.
Because how will she go on if there isn't?
Megan Crewe crafts a powerful and gripping exploration of self-preservation, first love, and hope. Poignant and dizzying, this heart-wrenching story of one girl’s bravery and unbeatable spirit will leave readers fervently awaiting the next book in this standout new series.

Doesn't this sound awesome?! Dystopian, first love, ohmahgawwsshh.
