Ya‘ll…this book is fantastic. I went into it thinking it was a retelling of Frankenstein itself, and while it is a retelling, it‘s more of a steampunk retelling of how Mary Shelley came up with the idea for the original story. If life wouldn‘t have gotten in the way, I would‘ve finished this way sooner. It was a struggle to put it down. If you have a love of Frankenstein or steampunk, I recommend giving this a chance. #thismonstrousthing

I braved the cold (“feels like -18”) to go down to the post office…and it was worth it as now I have my book club book in hand for the long weekend!

We may have a snowstorm coming tomorrow as well, but now I am completely prepared to not leave the house again.

Bookzombie This one is on my TBR. I hope you like it. 🙂 6d

This story wasn‘t my speed. I was going to give a 3-star rating, but I‘m a sucker for NYC history, and this had it. Along with some serious science knowledge. The writing was really good — it very much transported me back to my home in the City. Really there was nothing inherently bad about the story, just not my speed.

Mehso-so

This was a fun and cute story with a lot of familiar characters. I absolutely LOVED Diana. The thing that really brought this down was the extra 100 pages of fluff after the climax. It was easily way too long. I‘d be interested in reading another book in this series but that part has me leery. I don‘t like when books take too long to wrap up. Lol

Onward to my next read! I love Frankenstein so I‘m thrilled to get into this retelling! #frankenstein #retelling #thriftbooks #hardcover #crystals

sprainedbrain Can‘t wait to hear what you think… I love her Montague siblings books and have wondered about this one! 3w
SpookyDonut @sprainedbrain I inhaled the Montague siblings books, except the 3rd one. I haven‘t gotten my hands on that one yet. I‘m extremely picky about Frankenstein retellings because of how much love I have for the original. If you haven‘t read The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White, I highly highly recommend! 3w
sprainedbrain I have read that, and I freaking loved it. So I‘m going to trust your assessment of this one. 😉 3w
SpookyDonut @sprainedbrain I got you, friend! 3w

Oí, I have been almost completely absent from Litsy all December. I can‘t even blame my depression this time because I‘ve been feeling okay. I just haven‘t been reading at all this month. I‘ve read 2 books the entire month and spent most of my time playing video games lol

I started this #LMPBC book a couple days ago, and I will make sure I get it finished in time to send out the first week of January ♥️

Hopefully I read more next year ??
