  • Horror fans will enjoy the references.

    The Mary Shelley Club by Goldy Moldavsky was a very fast read for me, and it’s hard to believe it’s close to 500 pages. The way Moldavsky combined Rachel’s past trauma, the Fear Tests, the club getting together outside of school, and the usual teenage drama was a perfect mix. As a fellow horror lover, I thoroughly enjoyed all the horror references and I so wish I had a group of friends like that in high school…. At least the horror movie watching part, not so much the part where people start getting physically hurt! Horror movies are full of tropes and the main characters fit nicely into those tropes (mean girl, broody guy, nerdy guy, final girl). Even though you knew where these characters fit, I would have liked to have seen more development with Felicity and Thayer. And while I knew who the bad person was early on (watching all those horror movies may have helped), I did enjoy their reason being basically that they are a sociopath… I love when a horror book ends, but still leaves you with questions or the possibility of a sequel. And Moldavsky executed that nicely. For those who don’t read/watch a lot of horror, I can see this YA novel giving them some chills. And for those of us who do enjoy horror, I think you’ll like all the references and it’ll remind you a bit of a few different horror movies mashed together… which to me, was very enjoyable.

  • Loved it

    When I saw Goldy Moldavsky’s The Mary Shelley Club, I knew I had to read it. I have seen Scream many, many times. I am a huge fan of horror. I introduced my oldest daughter to it and we would bond through watching horror movies, so I loved that Rachel and her mother would watch the films together. The Mary Shelley Club is a love letter to horror movies. I was pleasantly surprised that I had seen nearly all the movies mentioned. I loved Rachel. Even in her fear, she was very brave. I liked the idea of the club, but it blows my mind that all these juniors are able to sneak out so easily at night. The teenagers, overall, are very believable. This is an author who got the dialogue right. You could tell these characters were teens and not 30 year olds trying to be teens. I am hoping with the way this book ends that this will be a series. This is now a must read author for me. Thank you to Netgalley and MacMillan Children’s Publishing Group for the copy. All opinions expressed are my own.
