Book Riot’s 100 Must-Read Books about Monsters Reading Challenge

Book Riot's 100 Must-Read Books about Monsters Reading Challenge

One of my 2017 Reading Goals was to read 20 books on Book Riot’s 100 Must-Read Books about Monsters list by the end of the year. There are a lot of books on this list that sound good, so I thought, why not read all 100 books about monsters. It’ll take me a while to get through the whole list, but I hope to eventually read them all.
