Should You  Read This Series: The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancy

 The Monstrumologist series is indescribable.  It’s historical, it’s Gothic, it’s horror… it’s even an odd type of ‘coming of age’.  It makes me squeamish and it makes me feel uneasy.  It’s violent, bloody and cruel.  It’s also on the slower side, definitely not what one would call action packed. It sinks it’s nails into you and makes you feel like you just have to keep reading. I took my time reading this series, completing it over 2 years time, and I thought I would share my thoughts with you guys.
