Must Read Monday: Contemporary/Realistic Fiction

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 contemporary/realistic fiction.  I chose A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness because it is one that is fresh on my mind and one that moved my soul.  Indeed, books like this is the reason I love to read!  A true must read.  Go HERE for my review ..or more like attempt of a review. ;)

A moving tale involving a

Monster and a thirteen year
Old boy named Conor.  Author Patrick
Ness has woven an exquisite
Story worthy
To make the late Siobhan Dowd proud
Er, it was the book that she could not finish (cancer claimed her).
Right after his mom's diagnosis of

Cancer did Conor begin to get nightmares.
Later get visits from a special monster
Looking for the truth.
So will he finally tell?


  1. I especially like the "Er" part. :) I think it is so much harder to write an acrostic with all the letters at the front. Great job! This book sounds intriguing. I'm headed over to read your review now.


  2. Nice acrostic! I've never heard of this book before, but it sounds very interesting.


  3. Very nice job, Jinky! I like the Er part too:) I've heard about this one. Patrick Ness is supposed to be a great writer. Thanks so much for sharing! Putting it on my list.
