Happy 3-day weekend:) I hope you get Monday off, too. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a great is definitely right that we honor him as such.
So...I put this up a little early with the thought that those of us who don't have work tomorrow might be up surfing the blogosphere. And also, some people around the world are already experiencing their Monday.
Hope you have some time to share a book title with us!

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 #11:

Valette M. @ Book Snatch (To Kill a Mockingbird)

Valette did a great job of telling the story, even using repetition -- "Do not kill a mockingbird." My favorite line was "In the night, a knife flashes, someone saves..." She mentions lots of characters, including Boo Radley. Once you hear that name, how can you not want to read this classic? I definitely enjoyed it in school!

Remember, you must follow Valette M. to participate this week!
This week's topic: Book with a wonderful ending

Here's mine:

Top student Macy
Has a summer job at the library and
Endless hours of SAT studying to occupy her

Time while her boyfriend is away.
Running miles to forget
Until she sits still, 
Thinks about her dad's death in the silence.
Her mom needs help during

An open house one night, and Macy
Bumps into a crazy, spirited
Overstretched crew of caterers
Unintentionally sucked into
Their creative chaos,

Following a wild urge to try
Out something in addition to her
Runs, Macy meets Will of Wish Catering. Around
Every corner, his surprises sneak up:
Vulnerable, insightful, artistic.
Even she has to admit that life is a
Rollercoaster ride best enjoyed with love.

I've seen this book a few times, but I've never bothered to read the summary. It sounds amazing. I really liked lines BOUT. Adding this to my TBR list!

Pamela said...

Even she has to admit that life is a
Rollercoaster ride best enjoyed with love.

Love these lines! I'll have to look this one up.

Eve Quinn said...

I agree with Pamela, those last two lines are the ones that really caught my attention. I've added the book to my TBR.

Ooh, sounds exciting! It seems like that some great things happen when we stumble into them. --Who's the author?

Vicky B said...

The Truth About Forever is one of my favorites! Sarah Dessen is so amazing, and this is the perfect example of her wonderful characters and relationships. She really has a way of telling a story that makes me feel every second of it. Thanks for recommending this one!
