Must Read Monday

Fans of Fiction

Must Read Monday is a fabulous weekly meme hosted by Jenna at Fans of Fiction.
To see how to participate and view the rules, check out her site
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).

Favorite Book You Had to Read for School:

To Kill a Mockingbird is the most heinous of crimes.
Observe this rule.

Scout and Jem think they 
Know Boo Radley's story.
Invent a game.
     Find presents 
Left for them
      But the 
Leaving stops.

Atticus, their father, defends the negro and is

Mocked for his choice.
Others understand, but most are rooted in the past.
Case is clear and hopeful.
      But they 
Kill the Mockingbird       
Interest turns away from Atticus's family
No one gives a second thought.
Goings are normal.
Bob Ewell will have his revenge.
In the night a knife flashes, someone saves-
      A quiet
Radley, left in the dark.
Do not kill a mockingbird.
By Harper Lee


  1. Great description! I want to reread this sometime.

  2. Great acrostic! I almost forgot about this book, it was one of my favorites.

  3. Wow such a good one. I still have yet to read this. Always heard good things though.

  4. One of my favorites as well. "In the night a knife flashes," is such great imagery. This is well-written and I love the repetition about killing a mockingbird.

    Great choice!
