People – this is a MUST read!!! As you know me, I get excited with new books.

It indeed is the best book I’ve ever read so far!!! Funny, sad, thrilling, exciting, adventurous and dangerous – it has it all.

I went to my favorite book shop last weekend just to find out out they were closing down soon. This makes me so sad!!! The good thing though was, that every single book in the shop was on sale. So my parents bought me like a thousand and gazillion new reads.

Review: Charlotte’s Web by E. B. White
One day Fern woke up and rushed downstairs. When she didn’t see her dad she asked her mother were he could be. Her mom explained that during the night some pigs had been born and that one of them was too small and weak so they decided to kill it. Fern was outraged. She ran outside just before it was too late and tried to convince her dad that she could take care of the little one and keep it alive. Fern’s Dad eventually agreed. Fern named the little pig Wilbur. Two month later Wilbur found a new home at her uncle’s farm.

Review: Milo Moss Is Officially Un-Amazing by Lauren Allbright
Why would you have a paper towel tower in your livingroom? Dozens of paper planes trying desperate to get the longest throw? Or dress up as a cockroach in the middle of a stadium? Well, Milo and his parents did all of that because it was the family’s dream to get a Guinness World Record. Unfortunately every time they tried, they failed. Is there an award for the most failures? If so, Milo’s family would definitely win this one.

Review: The Hill We Climb by Amanda Gorman
It is poetry month in the US, so I thought I could make a review about a special poem from Amanda Gorman.

Boring, Illinois. Brian can definitely think of a better way to spend his holidays. He couldn’t stay at home as his scientist dad got stationed at the North Pole. So Brian had to go to uncle Gary’s house, because he was the only one who had the time to take care of him over the summer.
