Book: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth by Jeff Kinney
From: Christmas present (Toto's!)
A fast, fun quick read as expected, but sadly, I didn't laugh out loud near as much as I did with the previous books. I think there was more potty type humor in this one, which isn't funny to me, and less of the "Oh My Gosh, that's soooo right!!!" stuff. But it's still fun to see what Greg is up to now and all the craziness he gets himself into, silly boy.
Bottom line: It was fun.
Book: The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros
Genre: Literary Fiction
From: I have no idea it's been so long! Some used book sale somewhere I bet
This one is about girl and her family, and the street they live on. Very short little chapters which show us the observations this girl has about all her neighbors. Interesting, cool writing which I really quite enjoyed.
Bottom line: I enjoyed it a lot.
Book: Savvy by Ingrid Law
Genre: MG Fantasy
From: Bought at the book fair.
I've been wanting to read this one for quite awhile now it seems, so it feels good to have finally fit it in. And once again, it was just as fun as everyone said it would be. It's the story about Mibs and her family, and how they get a savvy or special power/talent when they turn13 years old. Mibs is about to have her birthday and can't wait to see what her savvy is. Meanwhile, her dad gets in an accident, and all she wants is to get to him to hopefully help him. That takes her, and her friends, on quite the wild ride. I LOVED the writing style, loved it.
Bottom line: Hmm..... LOVED it! :)
