Review: Slasher Girls and Monster Boys

Review: Slasher Girls and Monster Boys

Even if you’re not a fan of short stories, you need to give this anthology a shot.  It’s a collection of horror stories by some very well-known YA authors, and the result is solid and diverse, with one common them running through all of the stories.  They don’t feature the type of bimbo-ish, murder-bait girls typically found in horror movies. These girls take charge and get revenge on the men who have wronged them. With only two exceptions, these 14… Read more »

Review: The Cage by Megan Shepherd

Review: The Cage by Megan Shepherd

After finishing “The Cage“, I’m questioning whether this story is actually “otherwordly,” as described in the synopsis, because I unfortunately never really had the sense that we were dealing with aliens on some distant planet.  No, it wasn’t because the aliens intentionally created Earth-like environments in order to put their human captives at ease, as was explained numerous times in the story.  (Yeah, good luck with that.)  There was just no sense of “otherness”; it felt like this book could… Read more »

Beth Revis, Marie Lu, Marissa Meyer, Megan Shepherd, Victoria Schwab, and Carrie Ryan – All In One Place. Oh, and I was there, too.

Beth Revis, Marie Lu, Marissa Meyer, Megan Shepherd, Victoria Schwab, and Carrie Ryan – All In One Place. Oh, and I was there, too.

This was one of the coolest events I’ve seen promoted in quite some time.  Five amazing authors: Beth Revis, Marie Lu, Marissa Meyer, Megan Shepherd, and Victoria Schwab held a contest, and the city receiving the most votes would get a visit from this Fab Five.  I threw in a vote for Charlotte and then didn’t think much more of it.  But then I saw a tweet from Beth that Shelby, NC would get a visit.  Shelby is about an hour away,… Read more »
