Currently reading Slasher Girls and Monster Boys, an anthology of scary stories by a bunch of different YA authors collected together by April Genevieve Tucholke. It’s very creepy and a lot of fun! So far my faves are the stories contributed by Carrie Ryan, Megan Shepherd and Jay Kristoff. 

Books Read in 2016:  Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd

“ No serum can change who you are. Nor should you change. Genius or madness-it all depends on who’s telling the story.”

YA Lit: The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd

“I rested my forehead against the wall and closed my eyes. It wasn’t just my curiosity, or my fascination with anatomy, or how I could unhesitatingly chop a rabbit’s head off with an ax when a roomful of boys couldn’t. Those things were all symptoms of the same sickness–a kind of madness inherited from my father. It was a dangerous pull in my gut drawing me toward the dark possibilities of science, toward the thin line between life and death, toward the animal impulses hidden behind a corset and a smile.”
