Ten Day Book Challenge: Day Three

Okay, it’s Day Three of the Ten Day Book Challenge! Thank you to the multi-talented author, Rami Ungar, for tagging me to participate.

If you’re wondering what this challenge involves, here are the rules:

  • Thank whoever nominated you with big, bold print. If they have a blog, link to the post where you got tagged there.
  • Explain the rules.
  • Post the cover of a book that was influential on you or that you love dearly.
  • Explain why.
  • Tag someone else to do the challenge, and let them know they’ve been tagged.


Twilight wasn’t my favorite book of all time, but it was incredibly influential. As a reader, I appreciated the vivid atmosphere Stephenie Meyer painted in this series. She brought the Pacific Northwest alive, triggered my imagination, and piqued my interest in young adult books. As an author, Twilight’s influence was even greater. It was one of the series I thought about when I considered writing a book. What could possibly be more influential than that?

I’m reluctant to tag specific people because I never know who has time for what, so I’m going to open this thing up to anyone who wants to play the game. If you’d like to participate, be sure to leave a comment here so I can stop by your blog or Facebook to see what books you’ve chosen.

    • No, it wasn’t bad at all. I read the whole series and I’ve seen all the movies. I enjoyed it, though there are some things about it that I didn’t love as much. It isn’t the most well-written book I’ve ever read, but it’s far from the worst. But, you know, it’s Meyer’s story. We don’t have to like it or approve of it. Obviously, she isn’t hurting for fans. The hate for Twilight is part of a bigger problem where people shame others for the types of books (or movies, or music, etc) they like.
