I made I really bad English mistake on an email....I don't even know why...

So I wrote "...I make the tickets booked by MOnica...."

But this sentence does not exist...right?

I should have written " I make Monica book the tickets"
or
"I get the ticket booked by Monica"...

Shouldn't I???

Please, can you tell me if my wrong sentence sounds very bad?
Thank you all.

    None of those are proper, but the "I make Monica book the tickets" is the closest. For grammatical purposes, the proper form is:

    I made Monica book the tickets.


    But, this sounds like you gave her an order and is a bit aggressive. I would say:

    I had Monica book the tickets.


    Good luck on your trip!

    You could say ' The tickets were booked by Monica ' or Monica has Monica the ticket for me. However, if you put a specific time, you should say, for examble, Monica booked the tickets yesterday.
