Synopsis:

Her story is a phenomenon. Her life is a disaster.

In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, and friendless. Online, she’s LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of the wildly popular webcomic Monstrous Sea. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves the online one, and she has no desire to try.

Then Wallace Warland, Monstrous Sea’s biggest fanfiction writer, transfers to her school. Wallace thinks Eliza is just another fan, and as he draws her out of her shell, she begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhile.

But when Eliza’s secret is accidentally shared with the world, everything she’s built—her story, her relationship with Wallace, and even her sanity—begins to fall apart.

I was so scared to pick up this book because of all the hype. I didn't even know if I would like it because the synopsis had the word "fanfiction" in it and I am not a big fan of that.

Oh boy.

This book totally lived up to the hype, plus more. It was a quick and easy read. It didn't take long for me to be invested in this book.

Eliza And Her Monsters follows a girl named Eliza, obviously. Eliza likes to be anonymous. In school and online. She writes an online comic called Monstrous Sea, and the awesome thing is that nobody but her family knows she's the one writing it!

Her reclusive life begins to change when she meets Wallace. The most famous fanfiction writer of Monstrous Sea. They begin to bond over the comic and she refuses to tell him that she's LadyConstellation.

Everything in Eliza's life seems to get brighter when she's around Wallace. She wants to expand herself. She wants to leave her house for once.

That is, until her secret identity is exposed. That turns her life upside down.

I absolutely loved this book. There wasn't a thing that I disliked about it. I loved all the pictures throughout the book and bits of the Monstrous Sea story. This book was beyond creative. I'd actually really love to read a real comic of Monstrous Sea!
