Must Read Monday

Must Read Monday is a new meme created by Jenna from Fans of Fiction. This is a fun way to recommend books to other bloggers by using an acrostic puzzle based on the week's theme. It helps bloggers learn more about the book. This week's theme is a book that you're grateful someone recommended to you.

  2. I've only seen the movie of this, which I absolutely loved! I heard the book was so much better. I like that you didn't make the poem about the romance because there is so much more to the story than that. Can't wait to read this one. Thanks for reminding me to add it to my list!
