Know of any other monstrous reads? Let us know in the comments!

Monstress by Marjorie M. Liu

In this gorgeous graphic novel series we follow Maika Halfwolf, a teenage girl girl struggling to survive the traumas of war. Along with the help of Master Ren (talking cat!) and Kippa (adorable half-fox girl!) Maika is on a journey to keep the monster inside her contained and find answers about her past. The artwork is so stunning you won't be able to take your eyes away!



This Savage Song by V.E. Schwab

This Savage Song takes place in a city where acts of violence and horror literally breeds monsters. We follow August, a monster who desires nothing more than to be human, and Kate, a human who would give anything to be a monster. When August is tasked with keeping an eye on Kate, a series of event sees them fleeing for their lives. Are they friends or enemies?



The Monster of Elendhaven by Jennifer Giesbrecht

Johann is a monster incapable of death. Florian is a magician bent on revenge for those who ruined the city of Elendhaven. Together they team up for murderous plots, banter, and maaaaaybe romance? Maybe. It's short novella that had me hooked from page one, but be warned it is quite gruesome!




The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud

Nathaniel is sold as an apprentice to mid-ranking government magician Arthur Underwood at a young age, only to be publicly humiliated by a ruthless magician and betrayed by Arthur just before it eleventh birthday. Set on revenge, Nathaniel summons the djinni Bartimaeus to steal the powerful Amulet of Samarkand from the magician who wronged him. This trilogy is an absolute delight!



Lakesedge by Lyndall Clipstone

Leta knows that it imperative to keep her brother's dark magic a secret, but when approached by Lord Rowan who claims to be able to help him, they arrive at Lakesedge manor. It is rumored that Rowan killed his entire family, but what is fact and what is fiction? This book is full of atmosphere, magic, and what draws us to the darkness.




Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

A classic we would be remiss to not include! Frankenstein is what you think it is: about a doctor and his monster. But it's also so much more! It's a tale of humanity, monstrosity, and who gets to claim which title. Of course we're including a gorgeous edition of Frankenstein (which is definitely NOT the one pictured here! Ours has a cover designed by the ever so talented @rena.illustration!) in our February 'Among the Monsters' box, so now is the perfect time to pick it up!
