Well, Beth Revis asked this question and I had the hardest time coming up with an answer.
I definitely have to be grateful for Little Women - it was the first book that made me cry and realize that books could move people so deeply!
There have been multitudes of books since then that have affected me one way or another, but right now there are two that I am particularly thankful for:
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi (coming out in TWO WEEKS PEOPLE GO PREORDER IT!)
Both books inspired bursts of creativity in me and reminded me why I love this whole writing thing so much. I wouldn't be so psyched about NaNo if it weren't for books like these that are so creative and fun and good that they inspire me to strive to be all I can be.
