This is a book that I’ve heard a ton about, but never grabbed. So the most recent time I went to the bookstore, I bought myself a copy, and immediately dug into it.
Eliza and her Monsters is about Eliza Mirker (aka LadyConstellation), creator of Monstrous Sea. Monstrous Sea is an incredibly popular webcomic, but no one knows who Eliza is. They only know LadyConstellation.
When a new guy at school proves to be quite the fan, Eliza keeps herself hidden. She doesn’t tell him, but they form a bond that starts with a love of Monstrous Sea, and goes beyond that. But when he divulged some seriously personal stuff, Eliza realizes she hasn’t been as honest as she should be with him. But eventually, he has to find out.
This book was way more interesting that I thought. I was expecting something fun and fluffy (which it was), but I also got some depression and panic disorder reading, which I didn’t expect. It was beyond well written, and I highly recommend it.
