Billionaire Boy by David Walliams

16 Jul

My latest review for the book club is ‘Billionaire Boy’ by ‘David Walliams’ yes you heard it, David Walliams the comedian! I found it hilarious!

This is a fantastically hilarious novel by David Walliams!
It made me laugh and I enjoyed every second of it!
Joe Spuds is a 12 year old billionaire. His dad got rich making loo roll. Go along with Joe whilst he tries to cover up he has money. and lots of it. so he can make a TRUE friend. David Walliams shows that even if you have money (and tons of it), doesn’t necessarily make you happy!
This is a great story and i love the way David Walliams actually talk to you through the words!
A great story from a particularly great author. Anyone between the ages of 9 and 13 will LOVE this book, even if you don’t know who David Walliams is!
9/10

Million Dollar Mates

5 May

I was ill on the day i received this book and i read it all in one day! Cathy Hopkins is a fantastic author! Here is my review:

Million Dollar Mates

Million Dollar Mates by Cathy Hopkins
Cathy Hopkins is my favourite author. She has also written the well-known Mates, Dates series. So when I got this book through the post to review I was so excited! I was off school that day and I read the WHOLE book straight beginning to end in a day!
Jess Hall is moving to Number 1 Porchester Park, THE place where all the latest celebs (and princes) move to! Her dad has landed the manager role of the apartments and they are moving in! Join Jess in her journey, exploring Porchester Park and find out which A-list celebrities she meets! But is this apartment block all its cut out to be?
I loved it! I think Cathy Hopkins is a world class writer and this book was no exception. The fun, fast paced book keeps you up to date with Jess’s life and gives you little secrets about behind the glamorous life as a celebrity. I wasn’t able to put this book down once; so much that I had to finish it all the way through!
Any girl between the ages of 10-14 would love this book as much as I did! Any other Cathy Hopkins fan will also want to add this to their reading list!
Definitely 5 stars!

The Hunger Games Unofficial companion

30 Apr

So my new book review is up on The Book Club website.

Here is what i think of the book:

The Hunger Games Unofficial Companion
The Hunger Games is a worldwide phenomenon, with almost everyone having heard of it before. In this great new book, Lois H. Gresh brings us the facts and the all the questions answered in this spectacular new book!
This book is packed with everything from fun facts to the main themes from the book!
It has so many interesting little snippets in the book that you literally can’t put it down! The layout is also very interesting and different, with bullet points, tables, boxes and different fonts everywhere; it just makes it so much more fascinating to the eye.
I would recommend this book to the older readers of The Hunger Games trilogy as there were a few hard words at the beginning but any Hunger Games lover from around 12- 16 or even for adults who like the Hunger Games!
I loved all of the book but my favourite bits where when Lois H. Gresh really made you think and question all the details of the books! I also loved it when you answered the questions and it really made you think about if the Hunger Games became real, or if it even would be possible for the Games to be real!
I loved every bit of this book, definitely 10/10!

Ruby Redfort- Look into my eyes review

9 Apr

I had the lucky chance to join ‘The book club‘ teen reader pannel which means I get to review lots of books for them. I write a review to go on their website and I will also post the reviews on here.I chose Ruby Redfort and here is my review.

Look into my eyes

Lauren Child is most well known for her Charlie and Lola books but this Ruby Redfort series is going to be a smash hit.

Ruby Redfort is a super-sassy, intelligent girl who is a marvel at code cracking. She is asked to join a case at spectrum (a secretive spy base) and asked to crack a code to save the gold bullion being transported to Twinford. Along the way meet Hitch; the mystery man helping Ruby, Mrs Digby their much loved house keeper and Clancy Crew; son to Ambassador Crew and best friends with Ruby. But will Ruby manage to crack the code in time for the big night? You’ll have to read it to find out!

I really loved this book because as soon as I started reading, I got sucked into it. It was a fast page turner, it had a great, believable plot and you can relate to all of the characters.

I really enjoyed all of it but my favourite bits were when I was seeing if she could break the codes and if she could do it in time! I was so into the book that when I was reading it, in the tense moments I felt all the emotions that Ruby felt herself!

If you are a girl between the ages of 10 and 14 I think you’ll love the Ruby Redfort series. As soon as I ended the book I was hungry for more! I think this was a fantastic book for teenagers from Lauren Child and I just can’t wait until the second book of the series is published!
