Image result for monster gif

I found this list of 100 Must Read Books About Monsters  from Book Riot in 2016 and thought it would be fun to see how many I’ve read. The list is made up of more lesser known books which I love. I know some of these are already on my tbr but I’m pretty sure after this they all will be. I have read a total of 5/100. I’m not surprised at all since I mostly read fantasy.
