I only read this because I own and have owned, for about 6 years- I was a big fan of Monster High a physical copy of this book, and I'm currently trying to get through my unread physical books because I'm running out of space in my bookcases, so whatever I don't like will have to go.
This book will go. I liked Gitty Daneshvari's School of Fear series although it's been years since I read it, I probably wouldn't like it now , but this was just insufferable. She tried SO HARD to have multiple mo I only read this because I own and have owned, for about 6 years- I was a big fan of Monster High a physical copy of this book, and I'm currently trying to get through my unread physical books because I'm running out of space in my bookcases, so whatever I don't like will have to go.
She tried SO HARD to have multiple monster puns per sentence that she forgot to write decent characters or a decent plot. Is it a Gitty Daneshvari writer quirk to have a character spout rules and regulations all the time? Because there was one in School of Fear, and there is another one here, who canonically never acts like that.
The difference is that it made more narrative sense in SOF, in Ghoulfriends it's just there because Gitty probably thinks it's funny, or maybe she's obsessed with rules herself. There are multiple canon diaries and cartoon episodes that show exactly how the characters act, and this just ain't it. Rochelle isn't obsessed with rules, Robecca isn't a naive airhead that is only there to say "Golly gosh!
Deary me! I'm not even going to touch Gitty's original characters for the book. I also realize I'm judging this middle grade book far too harshly, but it had a lot of potential, and it flopped so hard.
People love to bash the former Monster High books by Lisi Harrison although, judging from the reviews, they don't seem to love this one either , and while those were cringey at times, at least they were entertaining. Ghoulfriends wasn't. Mar 26, Lauren Tortorelli rated it it was ok Shelves: ya. Where to start with this? I picked this up because my kiddos are going nuts over it.
It was featured in the spring book fair and all of my 4th and 5th grade girls were absolutely nuts about buying it. I like to know what's popular and what my kiddos are reading so I nabbed an extra copy and sat down. Usually I can fly through kid lit books. Not so much with this one. The story revolves around three main characters or monsters who are new to Monster High.
Rochelle Goyle, a truthful gargoyle, Where to start with this? If you think that these names are clever, then the style of writing, or really stringing puns together, is right up your alley. The girls are trying to navigate their first few days at the new school when they realize something is wrong with one of the new teachers. She has started a new after school group and everyone who attends a meeting leaves under some sort of spell.
Can the girls stop her in time for the big dance? Spoiler alert: yes. The best I can say is that there wasn't anything too adult in the book which, considering my young audience, I had been slightly concerned with. The girls have crushes and boyfriends, but it's like a junior high relationship: all talk and no action. The puns though. They get old about three sentences in. It's not the library- It's the libury. The characters are very one dimensional.
Each monster has his or her trait and that who they are. And there are a lot of monsters to keep straight I understand the appeal for my kiddos and honestly if they are reading, I'm a happy camper. However, I hope that maybe these books can improve and that this first one was just for mass appeal. I know Daneshvari has more in her. The School of Fear was much better than this. View 2 comments. I am an adult fan of Monster High. I collect the dolls and think the webisodes are adorable.
Additionally I am a fan of all things paranormal as well as an avid reader. I was somewhat disappointed when I learned that Lisi Harrison's Monster High books were no longer being written and published. I then learned that a new Monster High book series was being released written by a different author.
Then I became more concerned when I learned they were being marketed to a younger age group. I was real I am an adult fan of Monster High. I was really leery about "Ghoulfriends Forever" I was positively surprised.
This new series is much more true to the Monster High shows and doll line. I loved Headmistress Bloodgood losing her head now and then! I also really enjoyed seeing appearances by even some of the shows background characters. I also liked that they portrayed Monster High as having dorms for students who don't have families that reside in town.
The cover of this book is breathtaking and I really liked the black and white drawings that opened each chapter. What I wasn't so crazy about? The book wasn't too low of a reading level but I can see where younger fans more in the targer demographic will be able to read this book.
It was still enjoyable reading for me but I would have liked the book to have been slightly more detailed. The mystery was solved very easily which is to be expected. Still this book was worth reading and I am glad that they will be releasing more installments.

Monster High: Ghoulfriends Forever : Ghoulfriends Forever Book 1
Much like any other town in America, it had shops, restaurants, small family homes, and, of course, schools. So normal was the appearance of the town that it was actually quite forgettable. Every year countless travelers passed through without giving it so much as a second thought, utterly unaware that there was anything extraordinary or unique about the place. But, of course, had anyone stopped for a closer inspection, it would have become readily apparent that the town of Salem catered to a rather specific clientele—monsters! Salem had long puttered by with nary a scandal or drama outside of the occasional spat over which cemetery would host the Dance of the Delightfully Dead, a celebration of the happily departed. In fact, so unremarkable was the community that the most exciting thing on the horizon was the start of a new semester at Monster High. Bright and early Monday morning, the well-worn wrought-iron gates to Monster High creaked open to a fast-approaching blitz of bodies.
