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.)

The Wide Window (A Series of Unfortunate Events)

The Wide Window (A Series of Unfortunate Events)

By Lemony Snicket

Another great book of this series! I haven't finished this book yet but since I watched the show I know what happens.So after another horrible event count Olaf did once again, the children find another family member to love with. Her name is Aunt joesaphene( idk how to spell it lol) and she is cautious.............. very VERY cautious. She doesn't cook anything or touch the doorknobs or even use the phone bc even since her husband Ike died after being eaten by the leaches, she has been very scared of everything. A few days after the kids settled,or at least tried to, their aunt goes to a market and buys some limes. She comes home with a man. One without a left leg and an eye patch. His name is ''Captain Sham'' or at least that's what he says. The kids know from first sight this is Count Olaf. But they can't show proof that he is bc his tattoo of his eye is on his left leg. The one sham is ''Missing'' and he has a patch covering his unibrow . The kids do whatever it takes to show everyone that is Olaf. Something else happends to joesaphene and its tragic. But u have to finish this book to find out. Ty! I love this book! 5/5⭐

The Reptile Room, Movie Tie-in Edition (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book 2)

By Lemony Snicket

Wow. This book was amazingly written. These stories r so interesting that I finish these books and only an hour! It keeps making the readers wanting more and more. Luckily there r so many more books for me to read in this series! Ok so this book is abt how Violet (the inventor age 14) Klaus (the reader age 12) and Sunny ( the bitter age..baby..?) move into a new home. After what count Olaf did to them at their old home,Mr. Poe, that has been finding new guardians for them, found their uncle Monty. His name is Montgomery Montgomery. But the kids call him uncle Monty because he doesn't like his name. He is a snake scientist and he has an entire room full of adventurous snakes. When the kids moved in,they settled very quickly, bc their uncle Monty is so kind and thoughtful. Until Monty hires a new assistant, but little did he know it was Count Olaf in disguise as Stephano! Count Olaf tried everything to take the kids,even trying to take them to peru! After his plans never seam to work,olaf gets two needles together,adds poisonous deadly snake venom,and kills uncle monty. The kids know it was him,but bc the needles look like snake bits,they have no proof. Instead, they r sitting there crying abt there uncle Monty, and thinking abt the lasts moments they had together. What happens next is crazy, but I don't want to spoil it so read this one to find out! Love this book I totally recommend it! 5 stars

The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book 1)

The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book 1)

By Lemony Snicket

Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire lived a happy life in their mansion with their parents. Violet was an inventor, Klaus loved to read, and Sunny had four sharp teeth that she bit everything with. But on one unexpected day, Mr. Poe, a banker, told the children that their parents died in a fire. Their parents had a big fortune that would go to Violet once she came of age. Their parents' wills had clearly stated the children must be raised by a relative. The children were sent to live with Count Olaf. He gave them hard chores to do everyday, and did not give them great living conditions. After living with Count Olaf for awhile, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny figured out he wanted the fortune. He cooked up a plan to get the Baudelaire fortune, and it was up to Violet, Klaus, and Sunny to stop him. I loved this book, and I could not put it down. Lemony Snicket does a great job, and I feel as if I am in the story; it is as if I am chopping wood with them and feeling their misery. I recommend this book to boys and girls ages 10+.

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

The Bad Guys in Alien vs Bad Guys (The Bad Guys #6)

The Bad Guys in Alien vs Bad Guys (The Bad Guys #6)

By Aaron Blabey

I loved Bad Guys because It was really funny and it taught some really good life lessons including being a good book for kids that are ages 7+ because of a lot of yelling but its still a good read aloud book for younger kids. I really hope everyone will enjoy this book like I did. Some following good things about it: Its a awesome way to show kids how to read and look forward to each chapter or page. And its also pretty interesting because of all the animals and more. Kids can pick all different voices for each character! Enjoy!
