Hey there friends! Welcome to this weeks Book Reviews! Every week I will post reviews about the books I am currently reading. Here are the books I have read so far.
Camp – Kayla Miller
SYNOPSIS: Olive and Willow are happy campers! Or are they? Olive is sure she’ll have the best time at summer camp with her friend Willow — but while Olive makes quick friends with the other campers, Willow struggles to form connections and latches on to the only person she knows — Olive. It’s s’more than Olive can handle!
The stress of being Willow’s living security blanket begins to wear on Olive and before long, the girls aren’t just fighting, they may not even be friends by the time camp is over. Will the two be able to patch things up before the final lights out?
My Review: I can relate to this book so muchhhhhhh! I love the more author made the book so approachable. I also love the way Olive always stays true to herself. Christina is my favourite character in the book, she likes too…. Oop! I’ve said to much. Really hope you like it.
Real Friends- Shannon Hale
SYNOPSIS: Shannon and Adrienne have been best friends ever since they were little. But one day, Adrienne starts hanging out with Jen, the most popular girl in class and the leader of a circle of friends called The Group. Everyone in The Group wants to be Jen’s #1, and some girls would do anything to stay on top… even if it means bullying others.
Now every day is like a roller coaster for Shannon. Will she and Adrienne stay friends? Can she stand up for herself? And is she in The Group — or out?
My Review: If you are a fan of Raina Telgemeier then this book is definitely for you. I used to be a lot like Shannon in this book. What it really shows is that we all need at least one Real Friend.
Making Friends- Kristen Gudsnuk
Sixth grade was SO much easier for Danielle. All her friends were in the same room and she knew what to expect from her life. But now that she’s in seventh grade, she’s in a new middle school, her friends are in different classes and forming new cliques, and she is completely lost.
When Danielle inherits a magical sketchbook from her eccentric great aunt Elma, she draws Madison, an ideal best friend that springs to life right off the page! But even when you create a best friend, it’s not easy navigating the ups and downs of relationships, and before long Danielle and Madison are not exactly seeing eye-to-eye.
To make matters worse, Danielle has drawn the head of her favourite (and totally misunderstood) cartoon villain, Prince Neptune. He’s also come to life and is giving her terrible advice about how to make people like her. When she rejects him and he goes on a rampage during a school pep rally, Danielle and Madison have to set aside their differences to stop him!
My Review: First of all, before I say anything, I want to say this: I loveeeee the drawings they are like cartoon but like real, but not anime. Anyway, I think this book has three of my favourite things. School, Friends aaaaaaand…. Magic. It’s a really Quirky Read. Hope you like it.
Sunny Side Up- Jessica L. Holm
SYNOPSIS: When is a summer vacation not really a summer vacation? Sunny Lewin has been packed off to Florida to live with her grandfather for the summer. At first, she thought Florida might be fun — it is the home of Disney World, after all. But the place where Gramps lives is no amusement park. It’s full of . . . old people. Really old people. Luckily, Sunny isn’t the only kid around. She meets Buzz, a boy who is completely obsessed with comic books, and soon they’re having adventures of their own: facing off against golf ball-eating alligators, runaway cats, and mysteriously disappearing neighbours. But the question remains — why is Sunny down in Florida in the first place? The answer lies in a family secret that won’t be secret to Sunny much longer. . .
My Review: This book was really fun to read. Sunny had no idea her summer was going to be a total DRAG but really all she needed was a new perspective, Don’t we all.
Ella on the Out side- Cath Howe
SYNOPSIS: Ella is the New Girl at school. She doesn’t know anyone and she doesn’t have any friends and she have a terrible secret.
Ella can’t believe her luck when Lydia, the most popular girl in school, decides to be her new best friend-but what does Lydia really want? And what does it all have to do with Molly, the quiet, shy girl who won’t talk to anyone?
My Review: It was a nice read. It wasn’t my kind of book but it was interesting. Iliked the storyline, It just didn’t catch me as my kind of book.
Percy Jackson: And The Sea Of Monsters
SYNOPSIS: It’s not easy being a half-blood these days. Even a simple game of dodgeball can turn into a death match against an ugly gang of cannibal giants – and that’s just the beginning.
Now Camp Half-Blood is under attack and unless I can get my hands on the Golden Fleece, the whole camp will be invaded by monsters. Big ones….
My Review: Yay! This is the book two of the all amazing PERCY JACKSON SERIES.I totally love this series. If you are a Greek Mythology fan this is definitely your book!
