The November Review

22 days until CHRISTMAS! πŸŽπŸŽ…But let’s get to the books.

Illustration School: Let’s Draw Cute Animals by someone! I do not know who the author is. Β If you know then tell me in the comments. It is an absolutely exceptional book because I Β love drawing.

Girl Online by Zoe Sugg. I love this book. It isn’t an autobiography like I thought. Β She is a good author, vlogger and blogger. I thought the story was a true story.

 

Shorter today but bye

October Review

Hi Halloween has gone! πŸŽƒπŸ˜­ but bonfire night is here! πŸ˜ƒβœ¨πŸŽ†. 6 weeks until Christmas!πŸ™‚πŸ˜ƒπŸŽ…πŸŽβ€β€β€ but there are still books to read and reviews to write so let’s get stuck in.

 

Let’s Bake by Cathryn Dresser has featured in other monthly reviews and I think it has it’s own review.The reason for this is because it’s not a storybook. It’s a recipe book. I mean you wouldn’t read 52 recipes in one go would you? Tell me your answer in the comments. You could read it throughout the course of a year, 1 recipe per week! A good book to browse through and bake the recipes that look good and they have tasted yummy!

Shadow Of The Dragon Part One Kira by Kate O’Hearn was in last month’s review and now features again.I like the thrill of the book even though it is extremely sad. It is also very exciting near to the end which is a cliffhanger leading to it’s next book featuring later on. This was a really good book to read though if you’re emotional maybe avoid this one. What’s your opinion on sad books?

The World Of Christopher Robin by A.A Milne is a good bedtime book. Unlike The World Of Pooh it features poems rather than stories which are very enjoyable and funny. Even though some give you the giggles you can find relaxation and more calming ones as well. Some poems are funny and happy and a couple are a little sad butyou can always find the brighter side of them.

Winter Story by Jill Barklem has it’s own bedtime review and is my favourite Brambly Hedge book. I don’t just like this book I love it. This story is soothing and relaxational. It has a calming feel to it and reminds you of ballroom dances in elegant dresses and suits. During the book the’dances started to get a bit faster’ like tangoes and quicksteps. Before returning again to the relaxing foxtrots and waltzes.

Shadow Of The Dragon Part 2 Elspeth by Kate O’ Hearn shows Kira’s younger sister Elspeth on her adventures letting you carry on the amazing tale of Kira in Part 1. I like this book because following Kira’s sister shows a different side to the story. It has drama and time travelling even a wedding slips in. It’s very imaginative and every page is a page-turner. I can’t wait to find out what happens next.

Join me next time bye!

The Slightly Late September Review

Hello readingspotters!

I know I haven’t done the September Review yet and it is approaching half term in October which yells’you need to do your book review!’ So here it is from the 5th of September up until the 8th October.

As you will know if you’ve read my Harry Potter Special that I’ve read Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. It’s by J.K Rowling and has a lot of action in it. I like this book because Harry Potter is always excellent to read and they are very enjoyable. It has some hilarious parts and also some very upsetting parts. But if you balance them out correctly you get an amazing result.

At school we’ve been reading The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne and on Tuesday we will be watching the film. I know this book is terribly tragic and although some moments might make you laugh then you realise they’re not that silly after all. There are two different front covers to the book. One is a bit of a spoiler and the other well gives absolutely nothing away.I am a very sensitive and emotional person so I will probably feel a bit unhappy during the book.

The finale book is The Shadow Of The Dragon Part One Kira by Kate O’Hearn. The start of the book is so unfortunate for the characters that I may have almost cried. Then it gets bit more cheerful but then it becomes awfully miserable again. Then they get a really clever plan and I love this book and I can’t wait to read Part Two.

Harry Potter Special

I really like Harry Potter, the books, the films and the studio tour! I’ve got a bit of a collection of Harry Potter things: all the DVDs, all the books (except Order of the Phoenix), The Hogwarts Library, Harry Potter Hogwarts the lego game, Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit and Harry Potter Pyjamas, Bellatrix’s wand and finally the Harry Potter studio tour guide book. Here is the Harry Potter review on the books!

I’ll start with Order of the Phoenix because the first four have had their reviews! I like this book because of all the action and the build up to the end of the book. I can’t remember much of the story because I read it this time last year. But I remember the end unfortunately I am not saying anything because MASSIVE SPOILERS! It is a good book.

Half-Blood Prince is the one most recently read because I reread it! I loved it so much and 5 weeks at school it took to finish it! But this first time I read it in one day or less! Some sad things happen and a bit of confusion cause some tears to break out.

Deathly Hallows is the saddest because it’s the end! Lots of fighting and deaths. But no more MR VOLDEMORT!! It’s happy in the end because they rebuild Hogwarts! Oooooops! There was an accidental spoiler!

 

Better finish it now then!

Bye

The August Book Review

Hello bookworms!

It is now September so people are going back to school and 2016 is going very quickly! I have managed to do some reading over the Summer Holidays in between going places, Great British Bake Off and the launch of Strictly! So here it is!

Let’s start with puzzle books. The first one is Quizkids. It’s a monthly puzzle book that comes out regularly. It is very good and has a wide range of puzzles recommended for smart kids aged 7-12. The second is Pocket Puzzler. Pocket Puzzler is also monthly but it is harder to do in my opinion (without help from my mum.) Pocket Puzzler has a collection of puzzle books but hey, it is a good challenge.

A new type of book for me, game books. So in these books you choose the story. So the August one is The Whispering Island Game, The Famous Five by Enid Blyton. You have a choice of what to start with in your ruck sack, a torch, a codebook, a map or a compass. You can lose or gain these items. You have three provisions in your lunchbox, run out and game over! For all ages and it is a good book.

Now onto the poetry books. Starting with The World Of Christopher Robin by A.A Milne. Split into to two sections, Now We are Three and Now We Are Six, I think. My favourites are The Three Foxes and The King’s Breakfast. Also the second poetry book is The Land Of Utter Nonsense by Colin West. All the poems in here are very silly and make no sense whatsoever but are just great!

Now onto the storybooks. Starting with Brambly Hedge. Brambly Hedge is a collection of stories about mice who live in trees and stumps. My favourite is Winter Story when it snows and they have a snow ball. Also The School For Good and Evil: A World Without Princes. The second in a trilogy, it is a fantastically gripping book which is not able to be put down. Sophie and Agatha need the Happy ever after.

Dork Diaries: Two Books

Hello

Since the last review I have read two dork diaries: Drama Queen and Puppy Love.

In Drama Queen there is a lot of drama. MacKenzie Hollister steals Nikki’s diary so we read from MacKenzie’s point of view.

Puppy Love features Holly and her seven puppies who Nikki, Brandon, Chloe and Zoey have to care for.

I really want to read book 11 when it comes out.

Dork Diaries are exciting but they don’t necessarily keep my reading scores as high as I can.

Thank you for reading,

Waterlilybookworm
