Monday's Question of the Day + Defenders of the Scroll Book Trailer!

Monday's Question of the Day!

Question: What book has made you look at life in a different light?

My Answer: I would definitely have to say, the Hate List by Jennifer Brown. The writing is so powerful and inspirational that in tapped into my deep thinking. It made me realize I should always be careful how I treat people because by being mean to someone for just five minutes can effect them their whole life. If you haven't read this book you should, it's amazing!

I would love to hear your thoughts, so feel free to comment!

Defenders of the Scroll by Shiraz Book Trailer!

The trailer looks cool, it reminds me of a video game. So for all you gamers you should check this book out, I'll be reviewing it soon!

Mine is here. It's non-fiction, but it fits the bill!

Reading Hate List was one of the hardest things for me. I found myself crying so often through out the whole story.

And that trailer looks amazing. I'll have to go home and watch it again since I can't hear the sound at work. BOO work. LOL!

Love the question. Have answered and linked to it on my blog

Mine would be Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. There's so much that goes on with people, and you just can't tell.

I want to read Hate List so much! I've heard it's incredibly heartbreaking and beautiful.

I haven't read the Hate List but it sounds great. I remember my Mom read a non-fiction book about the mean girl thing. It's called Odd Girl Out and when she I discussed the book it gave me a lot of insight in the psyche of the girls in school. We made my Dad read it because he just couldn't believe that the mean girl stuff really went on.

I can't think of a fiction book off hand but I'll see if something jogs my memory.

Great post, Eleni!

I have read a few books on the Holocaust this past year and I think The book Thief was an eye opener for me. We have all heard of the Holocaust but when you really dig in (fiction or otherwise) as to what really happened and how people survived.... it really makes me thankful for all I have and to hurt - really hurt for people who were judged so cruelly and in some parts fo the world... still are.
