Book Review: How to Get a Girlfriend (When You’re a Terrifying Monster) by Marie Cardno


Author: Marie Cardno
Publication Date:July 31, 2022

Trillin isn’t technically a person. She’s a tiny breakaway piece of consciousness from the all-devouring Endless, doomed to eventually rejoin it. But when a human witch stumbles into her world, Trillin suddenly has a new reason to figure out individuality–one shape-shifting tentacle at a time.

Sian is sure important magical discoveries are just around the corner, if she can just get her portals to work reliably. Reaching the dimension of the Endless without being eaten on sight is a dream come true, and Sian is determined to explore every bit of it. For science, of course, not for the strangely adorable life-form who keeps popping up and trying to… flirt?

But Trillin’s world can be a dangerous place, and keeping Sian safe might risk drawing the attention of the Endless itself–which will swallow Trillin up along with all her dreams of humanity. Together, can this unlikely duo escape the Endless, figure out the optimum number of appendages, and maybe even find love?

Hello Fellow Readers,

This was such a unique romance, something I have read in a while. Monster romances are somewhat popular right now so I thought I would try reading one and I am so glad I choose this one. Trillin and Sian are just so cute together and I absolutely fell in love with Trillin. I didn't mind Sian, I actually enjoyed her chapters but Trillin's naivety and innocence just made her entertaining and endearing. Sometimes I did forget that she was a terrifying eldritch monster, so it was pretty funny when Cardno would mention tentacles and it hits me. The book is pretty short but liked that because it allowed the author to have a pretty meaty story with no fillers. 

Overall, a fun and unique romance
