Monday Book Tally 9/24

Last week, I mentioned that I was almost done with Patrick Ness’s Monsters of Men. Well, I finished it this week. I have to say that I was a bit sad to finish this series. I’ve gotten to know Viola and Todd – and even Mayor Prentiss – so well over these three books that I’m going to miss them. That just goes to show you how great Ness is as a writer. There are powerful scenes from these books that have stayed with me – Manchee’s final scene, the end of The Knife of Never Letting Go (book #1), 1017’s final look at Todd as he flees New Prentisstown – and all of them deal with characters I grew to care about. Who are your favorite characters? Do you have any characters that you miss? Be sure to leave a comment and tell us about them!

This week, I also finished reading the short story prequel called “The New World” that Patrick Ness gave away for free. An amazing writer who gives a story to his fans for free… It doesn’t get much better than that!

So, what books did you finish this week? I can’t wait to hear about them!
