Mini Review - Chasing American Monsters

From Alabama to Wyoming and every state in between, the United States is crawling with monsters lurking in the dark corners, just waiting for the right moment to scare the pants off unsuspecting victims. This eye-opening book is a state-by-state guide to monsters, myths, cryptids, and things that go bump in the night. Discover Connecticut's Black Dog of Hanging Hills, the Tommyknockers of Pennsylvania, the Banshee of the South Dakota Badlands, and hundreds of other fearful figures. With more than 250 creatures covering everything from modern-day dinosaurs and dragons to extraterrestrials, lizard men, gnomes, and more, Chasing American Monsters brings you face to face with the unique beasts that hide in the shadows of each of the fifty states. Don't forget a flashlight, pepper spray, and a good pair of running shoes--some of these monsters are downright nasty.

Mini Book Breakdown

*I was given this novel in exchange for an honest review*

Every chapter of this book is a different state, first it gives just a wee bit of info about that state and then it jumps right into the monsters that have been seen along with stories from those who have seen these monsters. It's a pretty fun to read book and I enjoyed it but honestly, I just wanted to know about the states I've lived in or just ones that are important to me. Still, it was fun learning about other monsters in other states. 

It's written in a way that is so easy to understand and at times had be chuckling because the author has one of those voices that is just funny in the best way. Made the book even better in my opinion. Not going to lie, my favorite is the Mothman, I've been interested in him for about ten years now and anything about him just catches my attention instantly. 

A fun book to read, I enjoyed it and even learned about quite a few monsters.
