[Series Spotlight]: Monster High

Monster High is simply a fun series to read. The characters are inspired by monster movies. Not only are there books, but they also have a whole line of different types of merchandise. The most popular being the dolls. I have to say when I first seen them my inner child did a bit of squeeing. :)

Monster High is written by Lisi Harrison, who also writes The Clique series.

Monster High

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 enroll at Master High School, and the town will never be the same.

Created just fifteen days ago, Frankie Stein is psyched to trade her father's formaldehyde-smelling basement lab for parties and cheerleading. But with a student body totally freaked out by rumors of monsters who might be stalking the halls, Frankie finds that life in the "normi" world can be rough for a chic freak like her.

She thinks she finds a friend in fellow new student Melody Carver--but can a normi be trusted with her big secret?

The Ghoul Next Door 

Cleopatra de Nile - New pet snake - Has Deuce--the hottest guy in school--all warapped up - Herve Leger bandage dress, strappy gold platforms. Cleo was the queen bee of the RADs, the normies, and everyone in between at Merston High. But now it's "Frankie this" and "Melody that" . . . these new girls sure know how to get her lashes in a tangle. When Cleo lands a golden Teen Vogue photo op for her friends, everything seems to be back on track . . . until they bail to be in some film . . . Frankie and Melody's film! Can't a royal get some loyal?

Frankie Stein Frankie lost her head over Brett once and vows never to do it again. Not that she has a choice: Bekka is clinging to her guy like plastic wrap. But when Brett comes up with a plan that could help the RADs live free, sparks fly, and Bekka will stop at nothing to put out the flames . . . even if it means destroying the entire monster community.

Melody Carver The clock is tick-tick-ticking. Melody has a serious deadline to save her boyfriend, Jackson, from being exposed by the vengeance-seeking Bekka. But Cleo is making it royally difficult for the normie while threatening her acceptance into the RADs' exclusive group . . . a group that Melody suspects she has more in common with than she ever thought. Fitting in is out.

  1. If they had these dolls when I was growing up, I would want all of them. I have not read the books though. I did see a Monster High cartoon on TV once.

  2. My oldest daughter loves the books (along with me) and my youngest loves the dolls. I admit to playing with the dolls with my youngest when we have tea time and barbie play time. ;)

  3. I <3 these books. Just reviewed book 4 yesterday.
