An opening line like that has the same effect on me as: "You had me at hello"..... 

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness is one of those Russian-doll books.  A gift within a gift that leads to yet another gift. So I just have to share it on Thursday Quotables hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies. This weekly feature is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage during your past reading week. Whether it's something funny, startling, gut-wrenching or just really written beautifully - this is where you must share! Just remember to link back to bookshelffantasies.com 


Gosh, I love books that are just so much better than therapy and almost as good as chocolate. Some are even a bit better than chocolate. A Monster Calls is like hot chocolate. It makes you warm and sweet and it lingers. It speaks the truth. Like you should.

This is a monster of a book and movie and I don't think I will ever shut-up about it. And the quotes, the quotes are like gold. I am sure you will be able to trade with some of these:

We've watched the movie last night and it was like a double-choc-shot. The perfect companion to an amazing book. 


Have you read A Monster Calls or watched the movie?

We love hearing from you and if you talk to me, I'll purr back as soon as possible. Sometimes I take a cat nap and it might take a couple of hours or days, but never fear - the cat always comes back.
