Endless List of Favorite Characters: Juliet Moreau (The Madman’s Daughter Trilogy)

“It was a letting go of the determination that had kept me alive this far. It was the acknowledgment to Death that he had won, and I was a fool for thinking I could defeat him. I’d cheated him enough for one lifetime”

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. 

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.”

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.”

THE MADMAN'S DAUGHTER REVIEW MOTHERFUKAAS

YO YO PEEPS I AM BACK AND WE ARE GONNA TALK ABOUT THE MADMAN’S DAUGHTER BY MEGAN SHEPHERD

SO YEAH THIS BOOK IS ABOUT THIS GIRL CALLED JULIET WHO LOST HER STATUS IN HER FATHER’S SCANDAL AND NOW SHE WORKS AS A MAID IN VICTORIAN LONDON. SHE LEARNS THAT HER FATHER IS ALIVE AND ON AN ISLAND SO SHE IS LIKE YO BITCHTITS IMMA HUNT THIS MOTHERFUKA DOWN

SO YEAH JULIET GETS ON THIS BOAT YO WITH HER FATHER’S ASSISTANT MONTGOMERY AND THEY ARE SAILING AND SHIT AND COME ACROSS ANOTHER HOMIE EDWARD WHO IS DIS CASTAWAY.

LOTS OF THIS BOOK IS JULIET’S ISSUES WITH HER IDENITY COS THE ACCUSATIONS AGAINST HER FATHER LABEL HIM AS MAD. SO JULIET IS LIKE DUDE MAYBE THIS SHIT IS GENETIC

ONE THING I FUCKING LOVE ABOUT THIS BOOK IS THE HEROINE JULIET COS SHE IS A BIT OF A BADASS YO. JULIET HAS CLEARLY BEEN TOUGHENED BY HER FALL TO WORKING CLASS STATUS, SHE NEVER WHINGED ABOUT LACK OF LUXUARIES AND SHIT (WHICH IS FUCKING ANNOYING). HOWEVER WHAT I REALLY LIKE IS THE REALISTIC EDGE TO HER LOGIC THAT THIS MOTHERFUKA ACTUALLY IS AWARE OF THE SOCIAL RULES OF HER SOCIETY AND ONLY OVERLOOKS THEM IN TERMS OF HER WELFARE. THIS MAKES JULIET A BADASS AND FUCKING BELIEVABLE HEROINE.

ONE THING I DIDNT LIKE WAS THE MOTHERFUKING LOVE TRIANGE, WHY DO ALL YA NOVELS HAVE LOVE TRIANGLES I COULDNT GIVE TWO SHITS YO

I RATE THIS BOOK 8/10 COS LIKE I LIKED THIS BOOK YO

SORRY FOR THE WAIT MY QUEUED POSTS NEVER UPLOADED BITCHES BUT LIKE THEY WERE SHIT SO IMMA REVIEW THEM AND GIVE YOU MOTHERFUKAS A LOT OF SHIT TO READ SOON
