Welcome to another edition of the Monster Report. The Monster Report explores the book happenings of Jessica and Kristen. Whether it be what we got in our mailboxes, what books we are currently hiding in, or fun stuff to look forward to this week at The Book Monsters, you can find it here. The Monster Report is inspired by Alea‘s This Week in Books, Tynga’s Stacking the Shelves, and Kathryn at the Book Date‘s It’s Monday, What are you Reading? Also, Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers also host a kidlit version of It’s Monday, What are you Reading?

This was definitely a slower reading week mainly because we had inventory at work and that sucked up quite a bit of time, also I have been writing A LOT lately. I have finished all of the available volumes of Super Lovers which is sad because now I have to wait. Geekerella was actually a pleasant surprise I thought I wouldn’t enjoy it that much because I am OVER the Cinderella retelling but it was actually really good and the acknowledgments made me cry. It is basically a love letter to fandom and those are some of my favorite kinds of books. I gave it a 5/5. Catching Fire was interesting to say the least, I definitely wasn’t expecting the ending that we got, and if Mocking-jay ends the way I am thinking it might then I WILL RIOT. Still I did really enjoy the book for the most part and gave it 4/5.
I am rereading this for like the 5th time because I need it in my life since I am obsessively writing fanfiction at the minute.

Read this Week:
I absolutely adored When Dimple Met Rishi, I don’t read a lot of contemporary books, but this one was really good and felt so honest and true! We Have Always Lives in the Castle was an odd little book that I found quite interesting and a little spooky. Archenemies was so bad-ass and I just love that she stays true to her villain nature despite her romantic interest! Frogkisser was a fun middle grade fairy tale book. Heart’s Blood was a Beauty and the Beast retelling that was so good. I really ought to read Marillier’s books more often!
This week at The Book Monsters, we…
That is all for us this week. So until next week, stay scary Monsters.
