TBR Tuesday (5): Monsters of Men
I have a lot of books I've bought or received in a fury of excitement, only to have them languish on the shelves. This is one of those books.
Monsters of Men (Chaos Walking, #3)
by Patrick Ness
'War', says the Mayor. 'At last'. Three armies march on New Prentisstown, each one intent on destroying the others. Todd and Viola are caught in the middle, with no chance of escape. As the battles commence, how can they hope to stop the fighting? How can there ever be peace when they're so hopelessly outnumbered? And if war makes monsters of men, what terrible choices await? But then a third voice breaks into the battle, one bent on revenge - the electrifying finale to the award-winning "Chaos Walking" trilogy, "Monsters of Men" is a heart-stopping novel about power, survival, and the devastating realities of war.
Alright, this is what you need to understand. I am obsessed with this series. Love it to bits. To the point that I actually have 2 copies of this, because I got an ARC at ALA, but I also bought the UK version because it's pretty and it came out in May rather than September for the US. So I've had this for awhile. And I look at it and want to pick it up, oh, about once a day. But part of me doesn't want to. I don't want to end the series. And what if it's a letdown? (I have it on good authority that it's not, and I doubt it is, really, but I still don't want it to be over. This is ridiculous.)
So, what do you guys think? Anyone read this? What's on your tbr pile?
