Book Review: Slasher Girls and Monster Boys by April Genevieve Tucholke

Screen Shot 2015-09-28 at 15.20.19This was a great one. There were only a few I felt were just not my cup of tea. Most were engaging, but I did have a few favorites.

  1. Emmeline – Cat Winters
  2. Sleepless – Jay Kristoff
  3. In the Forest Dark and Deep by Carrie Ryan
  4. Fat Girl With a Knife – Jonathan Maberry

Those were the ultimates for me. I already reviewed Emmeline, so I’ll cut to the others. Sleepless had the most CHILLING reveal. I don’t want to spoil it but it was by far the most suspenseful of the bunch.

In the Forest Dark and Deep left me with a lot of questions. But it was beautifully written and I ended up liking the main character because I feel like maybe she was in control the whole time, a monster rather than a victim. Which is also why I liked Fat Girl With a Knife.

I found that most of the stories made me feel like they weren’t about supernatural monsters so much as they were about how easy it is to become a monster when pushed to the edge.

I highly recommend picking this one up. I won’t share which stories I didn’t much like, because I don’t want to turn anyone off to it. The stories I didn’t enjoy all shared a common similarity and I know that just means they weren’t for me.

Happy reading!

    • It’s YA, but since the book I’m working on is YA, and all the books I have planned out for the near future are probably YA, I tend to read a lot of YA. I think anyone can enjoy this one though.
