Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we share what books we are most looking forward to!
A Monster Calls
A Novel by: Patrick Ness
From an original idea by Siobhan Dowd
The monster showed up just after midnight. As they do. But it isn’t the monster Conor's been expecting. He's been expecting the one from his nightmare, the one he's had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming... The monster in his back garden, though, this monster is something different. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth. Costa Award winner Patrick Ness spins a tale from the final idea of much-loved Carnegie Medal winner Siobhan Dowd, whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself. Darkly mischievous and painfully funny, A Monster Calls is an extraordinarily moving novel of coming to terms with loss from two of our finest writers for young adults
This week I chose a book I think might be kind of Scarrrrryyyyyy OoooOoOoOhhhh! Actually I'm hoping that it's just the cover that is scary or else I won't be able to read this book at night HA! Since we are on the subject of the cover, don't you just love it? It looks like the monster is made out of corn husks and tree branches! I wonder if it's eyes are red! Love the hairdo buddy!
I haven't read anything by either of these authors, but I'm really going to have to check them out sometime soon!
What are you waiting for? :D
