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

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?
