Girls and Monsters by Anne Michaud

This is a collection of novellas with a dark Young Adult theme running through. Each story plays on a childhood fear, and one or two explore the theme of madness as well.

I am not a huge fan of Young Adult books so I surprised myself by thoroughly enjoying these short stories. Anthologies have always appealed to me, as you can dip in and out as suits. For me it was an excellent way to take my YA in little bites! I would recommend this to ages of sixteen and over as some of the themes are quite dark and horrific. Indeed one of them, I shall be checking under my bed before I go to sleep for quite some while!!


  1. I want to read this now, sounds great! PLUS, I'm going to gather up the 5 or 6 YA reviews I already have and make a new spot for YA HORROR. I did a post about parents needing to help raise the next generation of horror lovers, and I think I'll use that for part of the cover page.
    I have read some twisted young adult material! I was surprised at how graphic they can get. I wish I had these when I was growing up!
    I'm going to check the price of this one right now!

    1. Thanks pet. I was surprised at myself at enjoying it but I thought it was great!
