Wish-list Wednesday #20


Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop hosted by Dani at Pen to Paper Blog where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wish-list for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wish-list and onto our wonderful shelves.

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
, 215 pages
Published September 27th 2011 by Walker Books (first published March 5th 2011)

The monster showed up 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...

This monster is something different, though. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor.

It wants the truth

I’ve heard this book is pretty great. I’ve read The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness and I really enjoyed the writing. So I think this would be no different.

This has a very high rating on Goodreads and I’ve seen that some people are crying! Yikes! I don’t know if I’m prepared for that but I still can’t wait to read this book.

I really want to see what the pictures are in this book to because almost everyone says they are great.

Have you read this book yet? What are your thoughts on it?
