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.
“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.”
Okay but seriously.. I think this is my new favorite book trilogy of all time, and the third one isn’t out yet. I’m already in love. Everything about it.. I have never been more like a main character in my entire life.
