I have had a busy weekend with classes ending soon and everything but I'm back in action!!!
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 week's category is: A book so powerful it changed you in some way
Okay so I legitimately think that Jenna and Ashley are choosing categories that will make me think really hard ON PURPOSE! Such a hard decision because I think that every book tends to change me somehow. Its like when I read, I am lost, and when I get done, I sigh as if i have just run a marathon (literally), come back down to my body and try to incorporate the message or book into my life somehow. I guess if there was a book that really changed me in some way it could be Crank by (once again) Ellen Hopkins. I chose her book Burned last week and now I'm feeling like her books are all amazing or something (which admittedly they are). I will admit though, that although they were amazing, I would never ever read them again! I don't feel that way because the books were bad or anything, like I said they're amazing, but because I just don't want to go through the emotions the book puts me through again. The fact that it was written in verse and the way it's written brings you right into the story and makes you feel exactly like the character. When I say exactly, I mean it.
This particular book, showed me that just because I have it all together right now and everything is "perfect," certain things can happen and pull me down and there's nobody to right my life but me. (I hope that makes sense) Anywho, on to the acroustic:
Crystal Meth is Bree's new Friend
Reckless alter ego Bree who consumes Kristina
After a taste of the Monster
Normal is overrated, and
Kristina's life, her plans, everything, is beginning to fail.
Trust me. If you havent read this book yet, read it. It is so surprising how much you can get into this book. I thought I'd hate it when I first read it, but it's absolutely great albeit disturbing.
We also have the winner for the Marina's Tales Giveaway.
