The Dragonet Prophecy (Wings of Fire, Book 1)

The Dragonet Prophecy (Wings of Fire, Book 1)

By Tui T. Sutherland

This is my favorite book series EVER! I really wish they'd make a movie of the books. (Not anyone but Universal, otherwise they'd mutilate it) It has betrayal, battles, war, queens, friendship, romance, action, jokes, Hunger Games-style arena warfare, prophecies, secrets, and characters you love (Hello, DoD, and you too, Jade Winglet. Also Darkstalker, Deathbringer, and Riptide. 'Cuz they're too awesome) and characters you'll hate. (coughcough Scarlet, Morrowseer, Blister, and Burn cough) I can not believe that Warriors is more popular than this. I mean, Warriors is okay, but it kind of "lost the magic," by the time the second series rolled around. This one is still going strong. And it has DRAGONS! Not to mention, when I reread Warriors, I thought "I read this in the second grade?" (When I was in 2nd grade, I was OBSESSED with Warriors. I don't really recall why.) Long story short: 2nd grade. Bedtime. Couldn't get to sleep. Pulled out A Dangerous Path. Mom made a 'no Warriors at bedtime' rule after that. (What? Those dogs were scary as heck.) Now, this does have some violence. (Mostly in the first book, because, hey, when much of the plot revolves around an arena where dragons fight to the death, not everyone's gonna make it out alive) But unlike Warriors, you usually won't be lying awake at night because you're afraid to go to sleep. (Though I did have a couple of nightmares about these once.) All in all, this series is five stars out of five!!!!! (For age rating, I would read this to a MATURE 3rd grader and up. Don't read it to younger kids unless you know them well and they are very hardy. I mean, like, 2nd grade. Don't read these to kindergartners. They probably wouldn't get it anyway.)

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Book 15

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Book 15

By Jeff Kinney

The misfortunes and misadventures of the Heffley family still make me laugh, although I’m beginning to think Murphy’s law should be renamed Heffley’s law as luck so rarely seems to be on their side! A quick read that entertains and amuses with situations that are often comparable with and relatable to our own unfortunate happenings. The story continues while the family ended up losing their house after the extra house construction drama which did more harm than good. Aunt Reba, thank you for the chaos in this series 🤦 I see a huge improvement in the writing and how it's being presented but the illustrations are almost the same. But I am quite happy about this sequel. The story makes sense. There's humour and there's adventure. And moreover, Rodrick's my forever meme representation. He's just zzzzing 😂🤦 The family is trying to save as much as possible but they have to have a family adventure together. So off they go to a road adventure borrowing Uncle Gary's camper van. I just couldn't bear the second hand embarrassment the family had to face following the trip 🤦😂 The characters are fun. More fun I would say. The story well planned out with much details. The art is amazing as always. Minimal yet effectively entertaining! Some parts did remind of Tarzan's story gone wrong! And then a bit later on all the summer fun and adventure become alive. Yes, it would have been so much better to read this one during the summer! All those water and adventure vibes! Hahahahah! That skunk scene 🤣😂 And the bear in the end. I am so saying no to road trips like this! But I thoroughly enjoyed reading the 'mis'adventures of this one! 4 stars

Dog Man: Lord of the Fleas: From the Creator of Captain Underpants (Dog Man #5)

Dog Man: Lord of the Fleas: From the Creator of Captain Underpants (Dog Man #5)

By Dav Pilkey

I love Dog Man. I started reading the books in 4th grade when I was introduced to it. I was given a free paper dog man book with 33 pages. Anyways, I loved it. I bought two hardcover books for a total of $20. I read them both in one hour. My brother's school had a book fair and he bought to for $20, as well. Same thing happened with him, he read them both in one hour. I love these books, but that's just too much money for, 1. something (I know it purposely looks like that) that does not look like it took too much time to make, 2. something that takes you 30 minutes to read, 3 something that does not have many pages. Dog Man is the best, and I have read this one, it's about the adventures with his cat friends. I would definitely recommend that if you have not yet read the other books, I think you should before you read this one because you can get a better understanding of everything. I also have some pros and cons about the books for younger children, one of the cons is that they don't use "proper" language, but a pro about this book for younger children is that it does not take long to read, it's humorous, and it does not use a lot of big words, only one or two a book. Closing, I just don't think that this book is worth $10 dollars just for you to read it in 30 minutes. I am not trying to hate on Dog Man, y'all!! This review was thought out, and took time to be written, so please respect that. Follow me to get the inside scoop about books!! Bye y'all!! ☺

Dork Diaries 6: Tales from a Not-So-Happy Heartbreaker

Dork Diaries 6: Tales from a Not-So-Happy Heartbreaker

By Rachel Renée Russell

Dork diaries are so great. This is the first one I read so I knew nothing but my sister has books 1,2, and 3. I love the book so much. It is based on Valentine's day! Today is January 30! Nikki loves Brandon and her sister miss Bri Bri cut her hair. Brandon 's phone is sending her messages. She ends up getting really mad and being rude to Brandon. The sweetheart dance is coming up and she dosn 't want to ask her crush. Brandon thinks something weird is going on. Mackenzie on the other hand. That was your hint. You should read the book and not reply. I want to hear from everyone. Out of 100, it's totally 100. Get ready to laugh and have fun. You definitely will be surprised at what happens. There is so much of love, laughing and more. For a 320 page book, I am surprised I read it in one night and one day. I understood everything! Make sure when you read the book, you are prepared and remember what I said that happens and what is included. You should start reading! Get to the book.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Getaway

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Getaway

By JEFF KINNEY

Christmas is almost here and the Heffley family is way behind on all things Christmas and they want to get away. Even though Greg thinks it's not a good idea as he is perfectly happy staying indoors by the fireplace all through Christmas break, his family decides to go to Isla de Corales for the Christmas and be away from the excruciating cold. They are all packed and they leave for the airport but without taking in consideration all the traffic they will get. They make it to the airport and hit snag after snag. After lots of bumps, they make it to Isla de Corales and instantly they feel better as the hot air hits them. But family holidays aren't family holidays until there is a lot of bickering and that's exactly what ensues. Greg's mother wants the family to spend time together but Greg's dad wants to do his own thing and Rowley wants to do his own thing too. Greg is looking to do lots of cool activities so that he can finally show Rowley that he had stellar time on his getaway. Let's just say that short of getting thrown in jail, the Heffley family gets in all sorts of trouble. I don't know what it is about the Heffely family holidays that they remind me so much of my family holidays. From not leaving for the airport in enough time to end up sitting on the plane in the middle of a different family to getting lost at the resort to birds eating our lunch to not be able to get a single decent family photo are all so relatable and not to mention hilarious. I loved this. 5 stars
