Now, I'm off to snuggle up with The Monstrumologist. I'm about five chapters in already, and can't decide what I think about it. I'm not much for horror, but I get sucked in by the writing. It definitely has the feel of a more classic, older novel, like Frankenstein or Dracula than something written in the 21st century. Perhaps a good recommendation to my 8th graders who think YA lit isn't challenging enough for their tastes and prefer Cormac McCarthy.
