Preview — Monster High by Lisi Harrison
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
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
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
This series is so hard for me to review. I'm not even sure where to start. It's baffling, because Lisi Harrison is not a bad writer. I know she isn't. I've read a fair bit of her other work, and I enjoyed it. She just somehow manages to take Monster High, something that's really close to my heart, and completely bastardize it in four books.
The first installment is my second favorite out of the four; it's a nice little standalone ...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
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
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 an ...more
UGGHHH! A big no-no for me!
At first I felt it was far more shallow than I'd want my daughter reading in the future, which disappointed me as I love the idea of Monster High Dolls instead of Barbie. (I grew up with Barbie, but I am so a creepy and cooky Addams Family type person), hell I want the dolls for myself before I even had a child.
But back to the novel. It is short and all about figuring out who you are and accepting yourself and your friends for their quirks.
I was genuinely mildly annoyed at the ...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
