Aesthetic Board - A Girl Called Monster

Hey Ya’ll Happy Friday!

Hope you’ve been having a nice week so far <3 Today I thought it would be fun to share a little more about my modern day Frankenstein retelling “A Girl Called Monster”

One thing I’ve fallen in love with over on #booktwitter is a good Aesthetic Board. And while yes, you can (normally) tell a lot about the tone of the book by it’s cover, I personally love the opportunity to show a little more about the story in a series of images.

These are normally posted up on twitter for #thursdayaesthetic (which has a weekly theme that’s super fun to create around, and show different sides of the story) and shared over on twitter. This one is one of the favorites that I’ve made for A Girl Called Monster so far. So let’s talk a little about it!

AESTHETIC BOARD - A Girl Called Monster's protagonist jolts to life in a dark laboratory. She doesn't know why she's there, or what's outside the walls she's grown accustomed to. As her story progresses she realizes she needs to find out. Outside she'll find friendship, freedom, and a name "Monnie". I chose a dark overlay for this board because though Monnie finds hope and laughter, her past scars remain. I don't want to say any more for fear of spoiling the book, but If you’re curious, I hope you'll give it a read! 

A Girl Called Monster


"Where she came from there were no windows. The sounds of buzzing equipment and the doctor's shouting rang through her ears daily. It was too uncomfortable to call home and too familiar not to be. Like it or not, she was an experiment.

Filled with childlike wonder and innocence, she took pleasure in stories, imagining what it would be like to live in those pages. A longing growing deep inside her.

She knew she'd never have that life... Not in the lab. Not with them studying her every move. So she decided to do something terrifying.

She escaped."

See you next Friday with another blog post!
