PEOPLE! This is an exciting post!!! I'm featuring one of the to-be-sickest-and-most-awesomest books of 2011.... DUN DUN DUNNNNN...
A Monster Calls
by Patrick Ness (!)
based on the finaly idea of the late 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.
Patrick Ness is a writing GOD, I would read anything he writes. And if you haven't read his Chaos Walking trilogy, you are seriously missing out. I'm sure like his trilogy, A Monster Calls will mess with your mind, which is freaking awesome :)
Okay, I can honestly barely contain my excitement!! Aghh!!! Put this on your wishlist people!!
A Monster Calls is released May 2, 2011 by Candlewick (in the UK) and September in North America
