Spud

SpudThis book was written in South Africa. It says on the cover that it is hilarious, but I think it was terrible. I hated how it tricked me into reading the book by making it look good on the cover. The book is set like a diary and I couldn’t go any further than the 2nd day. I will admit, it was funny at first, but then it got super boring. Also this book is very inappropriate. Only in the first 10 pages, SPUD had already referred to a [body part] about 10 times. This book is the worst.  [hashtag.hashbrown]

Wonder

WonderAugust has a facial deformity that prevents him from going to primary school up until 5th grade, and whatever you think he looks like, it’s probably worse. Then in 5th grade at Breecher Prep, he gets gossiped about a lot. I like the style of picking different characters for each chapter. My favorite scene is when he goes on a field trip. This was the best book I’ve read since Stargirl! This book reminds me of myself.  [the_only_word_to_describe_me_is_swag]

Ender’s Game

Ender's GameThis novel is a very well developed story of a six-year-old Einstein who is chosen by the international government to be the savior of the human race. Ender Wiggin is sent into space to an elite school for geniuses, where they are trained for eight to ten years to fight the deadliest enemy their world has ever faced: the Buggers.

My overall favorite scene is when Ender proves his ability to think like no commander before him, using his already dead soldiers as a shield to keep just one alive, when hopelessly outnumbered by his enemy. My favorite character is Ender, because he is able to kill the enemy with his powerful knowledge. Sorry, that’s redundant, this book defines that knowledge is power. This writer is amazing, and if you like this book I also recommend Ender’s Shadow and Speaker for the Dead. Have a wonderful time reading!  [ThreeRatMom]

The School for Good and Evil

The School for Good and EvilThere was a town that believed that children were kidnapped and put into fairy tales. Sophie thought she would become a princess, and Agatha thought she was gonna become a witch. The day came, but a terrible mistake made them realize who they really are.

I liked it when Agatha tried to talk to animals and she could turn them back into who they really were, a bunch of kids. The suspicion is on – is Sophie a princess or a witch?  Is Agatha a witch or a princess? The truth is that … well, read the book and find out for yourselves.  [Shadow take you all]

Miki Falls 2: Summer

Miki Falls 2: SummerSince Miki is now in on what Hiro’s BIG secret is, she helps him out with his work. Then she realizes he is spying on her friend, Yumi. She tries to keep it a secret, and she does, but it becomes a challenge throughout the book. It’s now Hiro’s birthday and usually she is supposed to call him before she comes over, but then his present wouldn’t be a surprise. So she goes and knocks on his door, but when Hiro opens the door he steps out with a girl. Will this girl tear Miki and Hiro apart?

This book is great, but I suggest you read Miki Falls 1: Spring first, otherwise this one will be very confusing. I love this book cause it’s a short little read. I am going to read the other two books in this series, Miki Falls Autumn and Winter.  [pixiestix123]
