Monsters Never Go Out of Style

The Devouring Gray

By: Christine Lynn Herman

I was a little leery of this one due to people saying it reminded them of so many other things. I mean The Raven Boys and Stranger Things comparisons are right there in the blurb on the cover as well as some strong Riverdale vibes but for some reason here it didn’t bother me.

It actually worked for me. Maybe you just have to be in the mood for an old-fashioned small town monster romp?

The Careful Undressing of Love

Author: Corey Ann Haydu

Grade: D

When I read the summary about a group of cursed girls doomed to lose any guy they fall in love with I got some very Practical Magic vibes from it and since that is one of my favorite movies I was like, “Oh, yeah. I must read this!” Unfortunately the only thing I wound up feeling for this book was how much it annoyed me.
