Monster High (Monster High #1)
They prefer to call themselves RAD (Regular Attribute Dodgers), but some call them monsters. So far, the "monster" community has kept a low profile in Salem, but this year two new girls enrol...more
Why I was tempted to read this...I thought it sounded good and you gotta love the name Frankie Stein
Cover thoughts...Somewhat plain, but I like it simple like that, eye catching
Romance Meter...There was some, but there wasn't as much as I had hoped for. A lot of one girl liking a guy that likes someone else.
Character and Plot...I think I was expecting something dark and creepy with all the monsters walking around the high school, but the...more
So this book starts out with Melody Carver and her family moving from California to Salem, Oregon because of her terrible asthma. She had also just gotten a nose job that apparently made her uber pretty, and yet she feels like a fraud.
Switch to Frankie Stein. She is also a new student at Merston High, and only 15 days old. I guess being the granddaughter of Fra...more
La historia está enfocada en Frankie, bisnieta de Frankenstein ni más ni menos (esta chica sí que tiene buen linaje), y en Melody, la “normi”. Es decir, todos los humanos somos normis y Mel lo es también. Ella viene desde Beverly Hills!! Una chica un tanto insegura por su aspecto anterior que...more
Monster High, just proves that not all books with monsters or creatures, you would "think" don't really exist, have to be scary, or horror books.
From the cute diamond skull with the big pink bow, to the leather background, with pink stitching, this cover just screams cute.
I've seen the other two Monster High books, that are so far out, and I think this cover would have to be my favorite...I think it's because of all of the pink(:
I've recently joined together with Belinda over...more
A few houses down the street, newly-born Frankie Stein is learning about the world she was so recently born into... And how to hide herself from it.
The two girls' lives parallel the first day of high school, as they make friends, crushes, and enemies, with only minor intersections.
Trouble is brewing, however, as an overly-optimi...more
In a perfect world…in Frankie Stein’s world, it’s little more than wishful thinking that monsters and normies get along. Barely fifteen days old, and birthed in her father’s lab (aka Fab) with the Glitterati (her pet white mice) looking out for her wardrobe selections, Frankie could be just like any teen. With the exception of the bolts in her neck, her minty green complexion, and the seams that are holding her appendages together that could rival Sally’s in Nightmare Before Christmas....more
Monster High felt like the B-flick monster movie of the book world. It had more cheesy one-liners than a James Bond film and more fashion/pop culture references than a Teen Vogue magazine. But those elements came together to make a lighthearted enjoyable read that I believe younger teens will really enjoy.
I liked that the book didn’t try to be more than what it was. With all the dark/intense paranormal romance that are so popular in th...more
The story is told from two points of view, Frankie Stein the fifteen day old grandaughter of Frankenstein's monster, and Melody a transplant from Los Angeles who has always felt like an outcast because she wasn't perfect (although her pl...more
This book was too cheesy and corny for me. But maybe the younger YA crowd will like it more.
I thought the plot was original. Monsters hiding in plain sight of the "normies". And while I don't think we were supposed to figure out just who was a monster and who wasn't, I had the monsters pegged from the very beginning.
I did like the two main characters--Melody and Frankie. They were definitely true to themselves and wanted to be liked for who they were and not what they looked...more
Upon reading the first book, I was able to create a lists of thing I liked and things I despised from this book.
I enjoyed the fact that the author used the original stories of the monst...more
Miss 8 - Monster High #1 was good but not great, I think the 2nd one is better but I really liked the dance at the end. Especially when Brett is kissing Frankie and scratching her stitches and then her head falls off!!!! LOLO :)
I love the Monster High Series. I have 9 dolls (Mum - I am not typing out the names of all of them!) and really want Operetta for Christmas!!!!
Mum's review - Oh dear! The prem...more
I started to Google the title to find o...more
Melody Carver and her family move because she has asthma and the air in Salem is much better for her. Melody has always felt like she has never fitted in and here in Salem, things are different. People...more
