Author Crush: Rick Yancey

This month I'm crushing on Rick Yancey!

I am a sucker for scary horror fiction, and The Monstomologist series is one of the scariest series around. Don't believe me? Check out the summary for book one: In the short time Will Henry has lived with the doctor, Will has grown accustomed to his late night callers and dangerous business. But when one visitor comes with the body of a young girl and the monster that was eating her, Will's world is about to change forever. The doctor has discovered a baby Anthropophagus--a headless monster that feeds through a mouth in its chest--and it signals a growing number of Anthropophagi. Now, Will and the doctor must face the horror threatenning to overtake and consume our world before it is too late.

That's right, headless babies that feed through their chests. And the books get creepier from there, I promise.

If scary books aren't your thing, maybe edge-of-your-seat alien adventures are more your thing. Do you have a burning desire to read a book that makes you anxious enough to bite all your fingernails off? The 5th Wave is the series you have been waiting for! I have never met a book that made me more anxious than the 5th Wave, and its sequel, The Infinite Sea, is even worse (in the best way possible, of course wink). You will not be able to put them down. Here's the trailer for the upcoming movie adaptation: 

Is magical thievery more your thing? The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp is perfect for you! Alfred was just trying to survive high school when his guardian uncle gets him roped into a suspicious get-rich-quick scheme that changes his life forever: stealing Excalibur, the legendary sword of King Arthur. But after Alfred unwittingly delivers the sword into the hands of a man with enormously evil intentions, he sets off on an unlikely quest to try to right his wrong and save the world from imminent destruction.
