""As long as we agree to be your monsters," she countered. "Monsters? No. I want you to be something far more dangerous." Somehow, in the space of a heartbeat, he was by her side, so close that she could feel the crackling energy in his body, not so tightly coiled now." - Megan Shepherd, Grim Lovelies

I was looking forward for the book only subscription by @shelflovecrate
to arrive, since I heard about it. Can't really say why, but I'm emotionally attached to this book - when I see it, it makes me instantly happy. I love the design and also like the story so far - the big finale is a bit billow out for me, but I adore the character building. My dear Cricket - and Petra, the queer community addition. 🤗
Also there are a lot described, where I just have to laugh - because "mummy issues" or goblin parties.
📚 Seventeen-year-old Anouk envies the human world, where people known as Pretties lavish themselves in fast cars, high fashion, and have the freedom to fall in love. But Anouk can never have those things, because she is not really human. Enchanted from animal to human girl and forbidden to venture beyond her familiar Parisian prison, Anouk is a Beastie: destined for a life surrounded by dust bunnies and cinders serving Mada Vittora, the evil witch who spelled her into existence. That is, until one day she finds her mistress murdered in a pool of blood—and Anouk is accused of the crime.
Now, the world she always dreamed of is rife with danger. Pursued through Paris by the underground magical society known as the Haute, Anouk and her fellow Beasties only have three days to find the real killer before the spell keeping them human fades away. If they fail, they will lose the only lives they’ve ever known…but if they succeed, they could be more powerful than anyone ever bargained for.
