KINDLE ☆ Eliza and Her Monsters Ù Francesca Zappia

Her story is a phenomenon Her life is a disasterIn 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 She drew so many monsters that she became a monster herself 4 12 stars The only reason it's not 5 is that it took a little while for me to get into it But when I did it completely blew me away I liked this even than Zappia's Made You UpI'm not going to lie to you a huge part of my love for this book is because I related so much to Eliza So freaking much Well except for the part where she's a talented webcomic artist and I'm not but shhh Some of you know this but others don't I have long suffered with anxiety particularly social anxiety I get worked up about sending emails angsting over it when replies don't come straight away oh god did I say something wrong? I literally used to drink alcohol before the mandatory presentations in college not showing up only worked for so long and I still feel panic rising inside me whenever I have to make a phone call to someone I don't know well Over the years I've come to handle it better; to talk myself down from the panic But it's still thereIt's been part of who I am my whole life From my very first school years when I almost always played alone to later bullying because I was that weird and socially clueless class member who didn't get how to behave And the way I coped? To put it simply The Internet The Internet provided a place for me to explore the world find others like me whilst also providing a barrier I was invisible free and not alone in the way I was often alone in the real world I spent hours every night on my computer until my parents got frustrated that I spent so much time alone and not in the real world What they didn't get and what Eliza's parents don't get in this book is that I wasn't alone I was making friends from all over the world And they were better friends than any I'd had in real life at that point And as Eliza says It’s stupid because that’s what I like about the internet—that it gives you time to think about what you want to say before you say it It's always so wonderful to find a book that gets you A book that puts into words feelings you've always had but have struggled to voice Eliza and Her Monsters did just thatFrom my perspective it's a very realistic portrayal of anxiety and of someone who escapes into Internet forums Eliza's most valued friendships are online and of course her well meaning parents fail to understand or consider them realIt's a much darker book than I was first expecting While there is lots of geeky fandom fanfiction fanart cosplay the story of Eliza's anxiety relationships with those around her and even suicidal thoughts gives the novel a serious and emotional edge I appreciate books like this though If you're looking for a geeky fandom book that is lighter and fluffier I recommend ueens of Geek There is a small monster in my brain that controls my doubtThe doubt itself is a stupid thing without sense or feeling blind and straining at the end of a long chain The monster though is smart It’s always watching and when I am completely sure of myself it unchains the doubt and lets it run wild Even when I know it’s coming I can’t stop it There's another layer to this book too which I found really interesting As well as being about Eliza's anxiety it's also about an issue that is becoming ever relevant today and it's an issue that I don't recall reading anything about before the relationship between an artist and their fans Or really anyone with a fan following As Eliza becomes popular online the thing she did for herself for her own escapism becomes about other people and what they expect from her People start to expect a certain type of work and feel like her popularity means she owes the world and them something This opens a fascinating discussion on what artistswritersetc owe their fans or followers Whether in fact they owe them anything Creating art is a lonely task which is why we introverts revel in it but when we have fans looming over us it becomes loneliness of a different sort We become caged animals watched by zoo goers expected to perform lest the crowd grow bored or angry It’s not always bad Sometimes we do well and the cage feels like a pedestal It was honestly such an interesting and thoughtful book On many levels It manages to be very emotionally moving entertaining beautifully illustrated AND do something new at the same time Eliza and Her Monsters deserves all of the hypeBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube

Eliza and Her MonstersHer shell she begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhileBut 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 apar 385 Stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ “You found me in a constellation” ― Francesca Zappia Eliza and Her Monsters This book was an adeuate distraction from my real life right now Which is exams pressure exams kill me exams fuck my life death I enjoyed reading 50 pages of this every day before I went to sleep after a stressful and straining day We start off with Eliza an unsociable shy and introverted high school girl who is experiencing anxiety and depression and is closed off to the virtual world of the Internet She is also the Anonymous creator of the most popular web comic Monstrous Sea which is read by millions and millions of people all over the world Then she meets Wallace the most popular fan fiction writer of her comic who is transferred to her school and then everything changes This book didn't give me feels This book didn't make me cling to my seat to read what happens next These characters didn't pull me as much as I would have hoped This feeling probably comes to me when I read a book in two or three sittings and probably this book didn't give me this intense feeling of desperation to finish it because I was reading it during a tough time But it was probably just the book This was a book with a great anxiety representation amazing artwork throughout done by the author and a very interesting storyline But that's about itThe only characters I liked were Eliza and Wallace All the others just didn't exist to me They felt flat than fucking flat Earthers think the Earth is Her parents her brothers Wallace's friends his family didn't do it for me Eliza didn't pay much attention to people especially in the beginning and that's why I think her POV story didn't make me relate to these characters on no level at all The romance was very cute and fluffy I really enjoyed how awkwardly they started off and how they were writing everything in little notes but after it became canon it got lost to me It's one of those ships that you're dying to happen but when it does you're totally uninterested by it But they shared a deep relationship and I'm so glad they found each other We all closed off people who love books tv shows movie etc too much need people like this in our livesI hate the everything is turning out amazing and nothing is wrong and everything was shit as fuck throughout the book and then after a while everything solves itself trope And it happened here in some way I don't want my characters to struggle but I'm a realist And I enjoy realistic endings and situations in books And I don't enjoy when literally everything is upside down and glum and sad and depressing and then it all just poof Gone And I'm not talking about financial problems which can be solved with a good new job or anything but emotional ones This book didn't leave this taste entirely to me but it did in certain aspects And I didn't enjoy thatThis novel was very much like Fangirl plot wise but also not much They were written in the same format both the protagonists were young white straight girls who were popular on the Internet both of them had anxiety each chapter we got a snippet from their work etc This might be an unpopular opinion I don't know I enjoyed Fangirl It had its flaws and they were many but the characters gripped me Characters do it for me in books if I don't desperately till I fucking die love the characters or if I don't furiously want to kill any of them till they bleed right in front of me the book feels neutral to me The plot might be legendary but if the characters are bad or if I don't relate to them my dick won't move I need to receive these strong feelings from books I'm an all or nothing kind of person nothing to do about it And now off to what I enjoyed I adored the world of Monstrous Sea I love it when writers explore worlds within one book of theirs I adored the fandom aspect the artwork throughout the little text messages Eliza had with her online friends It was a very interesting and uick paced YA contemporary and it kept me a nice company I would truly recommend it to people who love YA contemporary books And till the next one K BYE
