Must Read Monday (#16)

Fans of Fiction
<div align="center"><a href="" title="Fans of Fiction"><img src="" alt="Fans of Fiction" style="border:none;" /></a></div>
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 #15:
Eve Quinn @ Eve Quinn's Notebook (The Hunger Games- Peeta)

I'm totally a Gale supporter, but Eve painted the perfect portrait of Peeta. I love that the last line left it open. If I hadn't read The Hunger Games, I'd wonder whether or not they explore their relationship. My favorite line: Eloquency, intelligence, and kindness his greatest arsenals to defend her. Lyrical and poetic, as always Eve Quinn!
Remember, you must follow the winner to participate this week!

This week's topic:  A character you love to hate
(Let's be honest, if an author can write well enough to evoke such strong emotion, he or she is meant to be an author, so we want to read their book!) 


Kind to let the girls dance when
Each is supposed to be mourning the loss of their mother.
Escape is what he
Provides-- to a magical silver world,
Endless grace, ghostly shadows, dancing waltzes. He teaches Azalea the
Right moves, but his sinister secret leaks out--his name becomes a promise.  

Here's my review, if you need more convincing.
*Next week's topic:
A book you read in one sitting (or as close as you could get with eating and potty breaks:).

I love that cover!!! This is a book I've been glancing at, but never really placed on my TBR pile... the last two lines of this poem changed that. Very interesting, even dangerous. Great poem!

I agree with Eve. The last two lines of your poem really stood out and I like your review. Adding it to my list!
