Must Read Monday: Fantasy

Here's a new meme that's quite fun and clever .. Must Read Monday by Fans of Fiction. Go HERE to join the fun.

The goal of this meme is to find those books others are excited about to add to your To Be Read list.
Instead of answering a question, you are basically creating intrigue for other hoppers. What makes your book so swoon-worthy? What do you absolutely have to mention so they'll read it?
On your post, you'll make an acrostic puzzle (think of it as an overview/book blurb type of thing).
When you leave comments on other posts, be sure to mention whether you're adding that book to your TBR pile, and what part convinced you to do so.
It's all about powers of persuasion, people:) You might have to think a little, but channel that inner-creative goddess (or god).

This week's category is Fantasy or a book with fantastical elements.  I chose Erin Morgenstern's debut novel, The Night Circus.  Find my review HERE

This was an enchanting book and I had a kick reminiscing while coming up with this acrostic puzzle.  Enjoy!

                                A fanciful Tale indeed.
                     Open only at nigHt and everything
                                    must bE in black

                                  Quickly Gone as it
                                  comes tHis circus
                                          of The night.

                              You'll find Celia's Feat of Illustrations,
     The Drawing Room, and WIdget's Anthology of Memory.
                                  Don't foRget The Hall of Mirrors, The Ice
                     Garden, nor MarCo's ship made of books.
                          And how aboUt a nibble of chocolate mice?
          Sea of Ink, Pool of TearS, Cloud of Maze, and much much more!


  1. I love how you incorporated some of the many aspects of the circus in this acrostic. This makes me want to learn more about these fascinatingly named circus features! Widget's Anthology of Memory? I wonder what could possibly be found there. Or a ship made of books! It sounds like such an incredible and mysterious read. I have it here on my shelf but haven't had a chance to read it yet. Your acrostic reminds me that I probably want to move that up to the top of the to-read pile!

  2. Wow this is incredible. It actually sounds like a poem I'd read in a book. It's so magical and fanciful. Haven't read this book, but you've definitely got me interested.

  3. Such a nice description. I'm curious about The Ice Garden and Marco's ship made of books. This has been on my shelf since it came out. I will definitely have to read it soon.


  4. Wow, nice job! I haven't read this book but you make it sound very mystical and magical. You really had your creative juices flowing!

  5. Jinky, awesome job:) I don't know much about this book, but I put it on my Christmas list a few days ago. I heard the romance was slow developing but juicy. And somewhere there was a review that compared this to the Harry Potter series! I'm very excited to experience Morgenstern's writing style. Your acrostic flowed so nicely- fav. line: "quickly gone as it comes, this circus of the night."

  6. I've seen this book and passed by it on many occasions, mainly because I am unsure of what it is about or whether or not I will like it. I feel like i'm slowly coming around though. Maybe if I read a couple more reviews and a couple more of these wonderful poems about it i'll be convinced.


Thank you for taking the time to write a comment. You are fabulous! :)
