The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell

The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell

By Chris Colfer

The Land of Stories is one of the best books I have read so far, and that's saying a lot, because I read all the time. :D Anyways, it's about two twins- Alex and Conner- who are different in many ways. Alex is the smart kid and Conner is the lazy kid. They travel through a book into a realm called 'the Land of Stories', which is the FAIRYTALE world! They meet many new friends and discover shocking secrets. This is the real-deal book- great plot, realistic characters, and the thing I like most are all the COINCIDENCES and how you actually get to know what happens to the fairytale characters after the story! Reading this, I just found out so many things that I've be longing to know about fairytales! It explains everything- why the villians did what, and this book is only telling about a small, small section of fairytales! Don't forget though- it's a GREAT book that you MUST read or you will seriously miss out! I mean, why isn't this more popular? It totally crushes the Hunger Games in terms of awesomeness! Anyways, Chris Colfer is a great author. I've already read all the 5 books, so instead of rating each one I'll just say that YOU REALLY SHOULD READ ALL 5 BOOKS!!! Everything makes perfect sense! There are explanations for every, single, action that every single fairytale character has ever done! All wrote into 5 great books that have great action, drama, and twists! (I'm still waiting for the 6th book.) And YES, the series gets better and better after every book! :D

Escaping the Giant Wave

Escaping the Giant Wave

By Peg Kehret

After reading the summary for this book, I was ready to dive in with some anticipation for a good book. To start off, the details and imagery in this book were creative and thoughtful. There was so much excitement in this novel, and it felt like the danger would never end. One thing, however, that I wish the book had was more time to develop. I felt that the whole plot was a bit rushed, and that by the end of the book, I didn't really know the characters better than when it had started. This book is less a story, and more an event to tell about, and that's why I feel like I enjoyed it less. It is an easy read, but might be mildly scary for younger readers, so I would recommend the book for ages 8+

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts 1 & 2, Special Rehearsal Edition Script

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts 1 & 2, Special Rehearsal Edition Script

By J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, John Tiffany

This book is about the next generation of witches and wizards. Hermione and Ron are married and Harry and Ginny are married and have kids. Hermione and Ron have Rose Granger-Weasley and Hugo Granger-Weasley while Harry and Ginny have James Potter, Albus Potter and Lily Potter. On Albus's first day of school at Hogwarts, James taunts him about the fact that he might be in Slytherin. Albus tells his dad (Harry) and Harry tells him that there's nothing wrong with being in Slytherin (which there isn't) and that it's okay. Aboard the Hogwarts Express, Albus befriends Scorpius Malfoy (Draco Malfoy's son) while Rose stays well away. SPOILER ALERT!!: The Sorting Hat declares that Albus is a Slytherin! He has to dodge rude comments and nastypeople who tease him just because he's in that house instead of Gryffindor. In their fourth year, Albus meets a young woman who, apparantly, is called Delpini Diggory or Delphi for short. SPOILER ALERT!!: Delphi is actually Lord Voldemort's daughter and plans to use Hermione's time-turner to get him back!! (But that's just cos she wants to see her dad one last time though.)The boys decide to help Delphi because she says that she is just trying to revive Cedric and says that he is her cousin. Will the boys stop Delphi before the world is ruled by the Dark Lord again?! Or will all be lost?! Find out in this book full of magic and mischief! Side-note: In 1998, Bellatrix Lestrange used a Amortencia (a love potion) on Voldemort and they had Delphi while he was in love with her. That's how blue and silver-haired Delphi was born. P.S. Sorry, I know I'm a massive Potterhead!!!

Captain Underpants and the Revolting Revenge of the Radioactive Robo-Boxers (Captain Underpants #10)

Captain Underpants and the Revolting Revenge of the Radioactive Robo-Boxers (Captain Underpants #10)

By Dav Pilkey

I started reading the Captain Underpants when I was in 3rd Grade. Now I'm going into the the 8th Grade and I practically grew up with the Captain Underpants series. The tenth installment in the series picks up right where the ninth novel left off, with the the time-traveling Tippy Tinkletrousers apparently having defeated the jovial hero. Luckily, the good guys and the bad guys both have access to time-traveling machines, so the story forms an intricate web of action that was entertaining to the reader. Over the course of the book, the characters relive historical events like the Big Bang, the extinction of dinosaurs, the start of the Ice Age, the world's first comic, and more. My favorite part of the books are the Flip-O-Ramas. They're actually really cool, and it makes the book seem more visual, even with the comical illustrations. I love Dav Pilkey's books, but I feel like this is the last Captain Underpants book that I will be reading in quite a long time. It had all the outrageous humor that I had remembered, and even though it's not in my reading range anymore, I somewhat enjoyed it. ~ifeelbookish
