Must Read Monday (#4)

Happy Monday!
Yeah, it's not always pleasant to start the work week over, but maybe this will put a little pep in your step (one of my mom's favorite sayings).

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).

I will feature two bloggers who had the most creative posts the following week, and those will be required follows if you wish to participate again.

As usual, I'm impressed by everyone's poems from last week. I think the best part about this hop is seeing other people's creative genius!

Winners of Must Read Monday week #3:

Susanne @ A Reader in Time (Where She Went)


Hira @ Views and Reviews (The Choice)

Susanne sucked me in by really telling a story in her acrostic. The first stanza creates suspense because the couple hasn't spoken in three years. My favorite lines, so beautifully written, were "One whole night is all they have to rekindle their love, to resolve the pain." Gives me chills!

Hira writes an overview in her first stanza in third person and then switches to first person, which really makes me feel connected to a love story: "Is killing her right when she's already dead?"
Great job for your first time, Hira!

REMEMBER: You must follow these ladies to participate this week!

Thank you so much! =D I love Thirteen Reasons Why! I think I liked it even more because I listened to the audio books so it was like I was listening to Hannah's tapes myself!
