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?
My friends are moving and are getting rid of a lot of stuff. They had two really nice, 6 shelf bookshelves that I ended up getting as well as a ton of books. I got all these books and the shelves for only twenty dollars.
Sawkill Girls was so much better than I expected. I mainly just checked it out from the library cause I knew it was spooky and gay but wow it was incredible. It has the mystery and intrigue, the characters feel real. It is almost as if you are watching something playing out right in front of you. I gave it 4.5/5. Skulduggery Pleasant was funny but also insanely sad at times. I really enjoyed it and love that it is a middle grade dealing with serious topics. I gave it 4/5. Firechild was a book that I had to read basically in one day (I was borrowing it from someone) and it was basically a soap opera. It is the story of Maxine Sanders who is one of the biggest people in Wicca history, it was really interesting and at times downright shocking. If you are interested, I highly recommend. I gave it 4/5.
