I was in the mood for a light hearted, fun read so Monster High seemed like the perfect choice and in a lot of ways it completely lived up to my expectations. It was funny, different from anything I've ever read and had a whole host of interesting supernatural characters. I really enjoyed trying to figure out which of the students at the school were RADs and what type of monsters they might be, a few of them were fairly obvious but there were a couple I didn't get until they revealed themselves.
I liked the fact that Frankie was so confident and proud of who she was, I completely related to her wanting to show her real self to the world and prove the normies had nothing to be afraid of. I was annoyed on her behalf by the attitude of the normies to the monster sightings and wanted to see things change. Frankie isn't the only new girl who starts at Merston High though and half of the story is told from Melody's perspective. Melody is a normie who has just moved into town with her family.Read more ›
Frankie Stein has been created by her parents, and is, you guessed it, quite similar to Frankenstein's Monster. She's sent to normie school in an attempt to fit in (which is a bit hard when you have green skin and bolts in your neck), but instead she ends up finding out she isn't the only RAD (Regular Attribute Disorder) in town. Her new friends include Draculaura, Lagoona Blue and Claudine, who all have such brilliant names that it's hard not to like them. Monster High is chock full of subtle and not-so-subtle references to horror films of old, and also proves how contemporary it is by name-dropping such acts as Lady Gaga.
Like The Clique for a slightly younger, horror-savvy reader, Monster High is fun, bitchy and stylish. The girls all experience romance and the (mundane) obstacles that accompany it, though they have even more to worry about than their wardrobe. I really liked the general idea of Monster High, though I didn't fall head over heels in love with the characters. They were cool, and I was interested in their lives, but I don't feel like I cared enough about any of them. Maybe that's how it's supposed to be with an ensemble cast, but even leading lady Frankie didn't fully convert me to the dark side. Maybe book 2 will let me connect with the characters more... here's hoping!Read more ›
First I got interested in these dolls. Now I cannot stop buying new ones. Next, I watched all cartoons, and now decided to read books.
So, I noticed that people who read these books wrote that they are full of sexual content. Well, yes, but not that much. Actually this serie is marked as YOUNG ADULTS FICTION, so I don't understand why moms read these books to little girls... It is obviously for teens and young adults, about boys, dating, love and school life.
Well, since I just wanted to read some easy book, I was contented. I liked the idea of book, romance and just easy reading.
I did read and vet it quickly on purchase and found it to be very girly and fun filled!
