Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop

This week Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books asks: What book influenced or changed your life? How did it influence / change you?

A: The Diary of Anne Frank. I avidly read through this book as a young girl. It was one of my first experiences reading a work concerning the Holocaust, and I shortly became addicted to learning about the time period through both historical accounts and fiction. My attraction to Holocaust studies has lead to an university degree and volunteering at a Holocaust education centre. I'll shortly be reviewing a few works on the Holocaust, as well.

How did a book influence you?


  1. Hopping by to visit and follow. Wow, that's amazing! It's a big deal to find a book that influences your whole life like that. I've never been able to read much about the Holocaust, but my dad studies it extensively.

  2. Just hopping by to say Hi. I remember reading The Diary of Anne Frank at school, and I don't think I was old or mature enough to fully appreciate it then, but clearly remember having a sense of horror that such things had happened relatively recently in our history. I couldn't bring myself to visit the house on any of the trips I've been on to Amsterdam.

  3. Very cool that the book influenced you like that. :)

  4. Hopping by...The Diary of Anne Frank is an excellent choice.

    Here's my hop:

  5. I loved The Diary of Anne Frank as well! A book that definitely sticks with you!
    Have a lovely weekend!

  6. 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!

  7. Hopping through. New follower!
    The most influential Holocaust book for me was the Upstairs Room by Johanna Reiss.
    Happy weekend!
