Must Read Monday #16

Must Read Monday

Monday Meme Hosted by 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).

This week's topic:
A character you love to hate

Okay, I don't love to hate this character... I simply hate them.  This is a serious ordeal for me.  As a Pisces I can usually view personalities from different perspectives and find one redeeming quality in every character, but not this one.  I hate her.  I was reading Shiver, Linger, and Forever the Wolves of Mercy Falls series and could not stand Shelby.  I remember thinking throughout the series that someone should just take her out of existance... another strong and unxpected emotion.  I never felt that way about a real person or a fictional character. 

Sadistic and violent, void of emotion.
Her wolf body the only one she desires.
Evokes feelings of hate, burdening those around her.
Leaves her mark on the world by destroying and harming.
Bothered by Sam's and Grace's humanity -- seeing it as a weakness.
Young, but already lost to a blackened heart.


  1. It's amazing how words can evoke such strong emotion! I still can't believe I haven't checked out this series yet! Great last line.

  2. Nice acrostic! I agree with Jenna, I really like your last line. And I also need to read this series.

  3. Wow, sounds like she could be in company with my love to hate person, Chigurh. --I agree with the others, the last line rocks! --This series has been on my tbr forever day ..sigh.
