Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View. This week's question is:

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?).

The book (book series) that has changed my life the most is The Christy Miller Collection. I just reviewed one of the books, and like I say in my reviews, these books are absolutely amazing. They have changed my life so much. I have realized how important it is to have God in my life, and what it means to be a true Christian. I love Christy, I really connect with her! She struggles with everyday teenage things: dating, friendships, high-school, overly strict parents, and God. I'm just drawn in by Robin Jones Gunn's writing. These books are so amazing! I love to sit and read them when I'm going through a tough time; they are just heart-warming.

What book has most changed or influenced your life? Follow, leave a comment and blog address and I'll follow you back!
