Must Read Monday (#11)

I hope everyone had a great end to 2011 and some sort of holiday vacation! It's time to bring back Must Read Monday:)

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).

For specific ways to build your puzzle, click here, but pretty much any style of acrostic is welcome.

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).

Winner of Must Read Monday Week #10:

EVERYONE! (And I can totally do that!) Great job, ladies! Way to end the year with a bang. (If you're participating this week, you don't have to follow everyone, but at least leave comments.)

This week's topic: Favorite book you were forced to read for school, classic or not!

Here's mine:

Just a sweet child, treated as
Anything but by Mrs. Reed, her abusive aunt.
Not soon enough, Jane is sent away to school, but forced to
Endure more torture, alongside kindred soul, Helen.

Epidemic in the form of typhus sweeps the school, and claims Jane's only joy.
Years later, Jane becomes a governess for
Rochester, for whom she secretly falls, but
Even he harbors a twisted secret that could destroy their seemingly perfect love.

*Next week's topic: Book with a wonderful ending

I hope I did this right! It's my first time, I was browsing late at night and it looked like a lot of fun! Please let me know if it's right.

I was one of the few people in my class who actually liked Jane Eyre. I really like your last line.
