Must Read Monday #1

Fans of Fiction

Today marks the start of a brand new meme over at Fans of Fiction. To take part all you have to do is pick a book that you loved from the chosen genre (today that is dystopian) and write an acrostic about it instead of using a blurb. This is a new and fun way to recommend books to other bloggers!

OK, so dystopian is a fairly new genre to me so I don't really have many to pick from. And as I've never done anything like an acrostic before, I'm going to choose the one with the shortest title - Matched by Ally Condie (sorry Jenna, I know you picked this one too!).

Become Matched at 17
     Must Answer to the officials
            Two boys in her life
            Cannot make your own choices
  Cassia Has found a love of her own
            End of the world as Cassia knows it
            Dangerous times ahead

Right, so I'm thinking I may have to work on my acrostic writing skills :)

If you think you can do any better (and I'm sure you can do much better!) head on over to Fans of Fiction and join in the fun!

Chrissie, I really like yours! "Dangerous times ahead" gives the book the necessary foreshadowing, as the characters are in constant fear.

Thanks for participating:)

Great choice and love the words used, if I hadn't have already read Matched I would definatly pick up a copy now.
