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?).
I think for me Pushkin's Eugene Onegin was a timely find. I read it during a period when I totally worshipped this guy who didn't feel the same and it seemed like Tatyana and I were in the same boat. I even wrote a letter to the guy I liked, the way she does. It didn't work out, but eventually I went on to find love with someone the complete opposite of the guy I had once adored. I still like to go back to the book now and again as it is such a wonderful piece of writing.
This week's question from Crazy-for-Books is:
What is the one ARC you would love to get your hands on right now?
I am quite keen to read the new A. S. Byatt book, Ragnarok that will be released early September. I requested the ARC from NetGalley, but haven't heard if I was lucky enough to be approved for it yet.
