Feature and Follow is a blog hop hosted by Rachel from Parajunkie and Alison from AlisonCanRead. I really enjoy the Feature and Follow blog hop. If you decide to follow my blog, I would prefer that you follow it by email.
Here is the prompt: What was the first book that moved you? Scared you, made you cry, disturbed your view of the world?
The first book that really moved me was Night by Elie Wiesel. I read this book in high school and it was so poignant. The tragedies in the story were hard to believe which made them all the more heartbreaking. I think that this was the first book that changed my view of the world. The story made me think about the atrocities that man can commit against his brother. I wondered how anyone could commit such crimes against a fellow human being.
Two books by Mitch Albom that really moved me were Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven. I read both of these stories in college and they made me cry. The stories helped me to appreciate life in a new way.
