Befofre I begin, I need to rant a bit. It SUCKS that despite the fact that I love reading all these books and writing reviews, and can read books in one sitting without losing interest, I still cant read a book for sckool without being bored out of my mind and nearly pulling my hair out. You would think that I'd have a lot of practice by now and could do it easily but no! I hate it even more than before. It seems that the more I force myself to read the stupid book, the more my attention is directed to how much I hate it and then how much I'd prefer to be reading my book for the blog, and then to how hungry I am, and then to how many pages I have left, and once again to how much I hate the book. If only I didnt have to read boring materials for class. Oh well. Its time for Must read Monday, hosted by Fans of Fiction.
The goal of the Must Read Monday is to find share your love of great books with others in the hopes that they'll add a new title to their To Be Read list.
Your job is to create 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 weeks Category is Contemporary/Realistic Fiction.
Ugh. Not my category at all, (I don't have much to choose from it seems) but I will choose Burned by Ellen Hopkins (I hope this counts)
Burdened by abuse of her father and norms of her religion
Under strict guidelines to follow
Ransacked by ideas of sex, love, and violence
Now Pattyn is shipped away
Everything she discovers and more
Determine her destiny, and eventually, her demise.
I hope that makes you want to read it. This is by Far the best book of the ones written by Ellen Hopkins (in my opinion) READ IT!!!
