I remember passing Mister Monday (TKTTK Book 1) in the bookstore and always being drawn to it. When I finally read it I had to read the next one, and then the next one, and so on. It's that kind of series. At that time though, only six of the seven books were out so I had to wait for over a year for the next and final book in the series. It was madness! But I made it through. If you haven't read this series yet, you don't have to wait at all. You can just devour them all at once (Wednesday would) or in quick succession -whatever the case may be.

Directly below is a blurb about Mister Monday and following that are two videos; one is a book trailer for Lord Sunday, the 7th & final book in the series, and the other is an interview with Garth Nix in which he talks about the series.
(illustration by McLean Kendree)(From Goodreads)Arthur Penhaligon is not supposed to be a hero. He is, in fact, supposed to die an early death. But then his life is saved by a key shaped like the minute hand of a clock.
Mister Monday: The Keys to the Kingdom, Book 1
Arthur is safe--but his world is not. Along with the key comes a plague brought by bizarre creatures from another realm. A stranger named Mister Monday, his avenging messengers with bloodstained wings, and an army of dog-faced Fetchers will stop at nothing to get the key back--even if it means destroying Arthur and everything around him.
Desperate, Arthur ventures into a mysterious house--a house that only he can see. It is in this house that Arthur must unravel the secrets of the key--and discover his true fate.
