Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves her digital community. Then Wallace Warland transfers to her school, and Eliza begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhile.

Synopsis from Chapters.Indigo.ca
I was immediately drawn to this book for two reasons: I love the concept (I’m a huge fan of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell) and the cover completely grabbed my attention. So I was very happy to find that I was equally in love with the story itself. It really drew me in on so many different levels and I couldn’t put it down once I started. So…
Why I Loved It:
My Only Concern:
Overall, I loved this book. I’ve already read it twice and it continues to have such an impact on me. There are so many strong characters, moments, and relationships and I love jumping back into this world. I’ve also found the Zappia's actual Monsterous Sea graphic comic online and I love popping in to see if she's posted any new images or sketches!! (http://www.monstroussea.com/)
What did you think of Eliza and her Monsters?
FINAL RATING: 4.5/5
Hi, I'm Alexandra! I love reading (largely YA fiction, but sometimes I'll read "adult" books), playing board games, Nutella, and binge-watching TV shows on Netflix with my husband.
