For review: Monster High by Lisi Harrison (Atom)

They prefer to call themselves RADs, but some call them monsters. So far, the "monster" community has kept a low profile in Salem, Oregon, but this year two new girls enroll at Merston High School, and the town will never be the same.

Created just fifteen days ago, Frankie Stein is psyched to trade her father's lonely formaldehyde-smelling basement lab for parties and friends. But with a student body totally freaked out by rumors of monsters 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?
Monster High isn't just a book, it's a whole franchise with costumes, films, webisodes, apparel and toys, all aimed at teen and tween girls. Emily the Strange for this decade?

On a personal aspiring writers, have you ever walked into a bookshop and checked
out which authors you'll be sandwiched between? I'll have Lisi Harrison on one side and Sonya Hartnett on the other--two bestselling authors. Oh the pressure!

On a related note, I HAVE NEWS. STAY TUNED.

Also in my mailbox were these gorgeous Jane Austen goodies from Misty, won during her Jane Austen week. Bad Girls of Jane Austen bookmarks...

...and this stunning necklace that I've been wearing everywhere! It's so pretty.

Here's me wearing it with my friend Reannon just before we hit the town. I know, Reannon and Rhiannon. We are a mighty bad influence on each other, let me tell you!

  1. Those prizes look wonderful! Congrats. Can't wait to hear your news!

  2. YAY!!!! Glad you like it, I made the same one for myself. ;p

  3. I didn't realise Monster High had so much going on *part* from the book. Sounds pretty fun. Love the necklace too. And I'm *totally* on the edge of my seat about the 'news'. :D

  4. I found out last week that it's a TV show too. I never knew that it went beyond a book though. It sounds like a really cute read.

  5. I've heard good thing about Monster High, I hope you enjoy it :)
