bookshelves: awards, fiction, horror, ya, tbr-challenge

I think it will be relatively easy to describe this book in a way that will let you know if this is something you will enjoy or not. Below are two lists of words:

List One
Party balloons
Pretty pretty flowers

List Two
A geyser of blood
Ripped off limbs
Gouged eyes
Stabby stabby teeth
Accidentally ingesting pus
Claws bursting through a torso

If you prefer list one, with all its fun and lightness and joy, do not read The Monstrumologist. There is nothing for you there. BUT! If you find yourself compelled by list two - this is your book. This book is gross and violent and stuffed to the gills with murder and immorality and wacky monsters who would like nothing better than to rip your head off and scoop out your brain like ice cream.

The choice is yours.
