Must Read Monday #6

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).

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).
Wow, so nice of Fans of Fiction to feature my acrostic from last week.  Thank you!  Everyone does such a good job every week.  I love Mondays.  I'm afraid my creative juices have left me this morning so I didn't really come up with anything too impressive. 

This week's category: Fantasy (or some book with fantastical elements)

I loved this book.  It is so fun to read out loud.  Seriously.  Read it to yourself, your cat, your kids, your boyfriend, whoever.  It made me laugh.  What kind of a brain can write a full blown book (284 pages) in rhyme, anyway?  Crazy brilliant!  And did I mention fun?  This book uses different fonts to accent different words.  Again, so fun.  You've really got to give this book a look.  Here is my blog review on this book.  And just in case you want a sample:
"Here is a story that's stranger than strange. Before we begin you may want to arrange:
a blanket,
a cushion,
a comfortable seat,
and maybe some cocoa and something eat."
Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Monday to ya'll!


  1. Nice acrostic! I haven't heard of this book before, but it sounds interesting. I like the line "Zany illustrations"


  2. Omgosh that book sounds awesome! It kind of reminds me a bit of Shel Silverstein (I could be totally wrong). I work a lot with kids, so this might just be the perfect Christmas present this year. (I LOVE giving books).

  3. Brilliant! You're so good at this! I can't really pick one line that I like best, it all flows together so perfectly. It sounds like such a fun read. That is nuts, 284 pages of rhyme? I'm definitely grabbing this one!

  4. How cool is that book? I haven't read it, but now I want to try to write in meme perhaps? Just kidding:) But seriously, I want to try.
    Can't wait to pick this up!

  5. Sounds like something my kids would love too. Thanks my tbr now. :)

  6. oooo! I love this book. Its so cute and I like the poem aspect.
