Review: Restart by Gordon Korman

And the winner is: Restart got the most votes out of my book shop mega sale pile and as promissed – here is the review. Before I forget, thanks for participating and helping me pick a book. It always means so much to me if you guys like what I do and give me some feedback.

Now let’s get started:

The main character in this book is Chase Ambrose. He falls off his roof and suffers a memory loss. When he wakes up in hospital he can’t remember who he was anymore. Everyone has their side of Chase. When he goes back to school kids react very differently to his return. For some he is a bully. To others, like Kimberly who is secretly in love with Chase, he is a whole different person. Whom to believe? Who was he before the accident and who will he become once his memory comes back?

How did I like the book?
I loved the book because people stood up for Chase. Also the moral of the story is to give everyone a second chance even the people who are bystanders and disruptors. People can change. Even real bullys. Don’t give up on them!

Who is that book for?
kids 8 years and older

Rating: 9/10

Going Crazy in a Book Shop Reloaded – Please Vote for your Favorite!

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.

This came just in time for my 3 months summer break. Loads of time for reading, right?

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: Auggie & Me – Three Wonder Stories by R.J. Palacio

Remember “Wonder”? Certainly one of my favorite books of all time. Well, the book got a sequel. “Auggie & Me – Three Wonder Stories” tells three different sites of this story from kids that are all close to Auggie in some way.

Review: 5,000 AWESOME FACTS (About Everything)2 by National Geographic

Did you know that there is a CRATER on the surface of Mercury that’s big enough to hold the state of Texas? Or how about this: if you stay at the Jule’s undersea Lodge in Key Largo, Florida you will SCUBA DIVE to your room! How cool is that? I have one more for you: male pandas do a HANDSTAND while peeing to mark trees.

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.
I got “THE HILL WE CLIMB” from the Easter bunny.
Amanda Gorman became the youngest inaugural poet ever. She performed her poem at the inauguration of Joe Bidden earlier this year. I really liked the poem so I definitely wanted to share this little book with you.

Review: The Matchstick Castle by Keir Graff

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.

Review: Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea

What is the name of your favorite teacher? I am spoilt because almost all of my teachers are and have been very nice. But there is one teacher in particular that I like the most because she is very kind, stays calm in any situation, motivates her students to give their best and is also fun.

This book is also about a great teacher.

Review: Waste of Space by Stuart Gibbs

I hope you all had a great Christmas break. Happy new year! Welcome 2021!

2020 was not the greatest year, but this quote I wanted to share, because it is a very good explanation of last year: “There is always a light at the end of the tunnel.” I personally found 2020 pretty good except Corona/Covid-19 of course. The virus also had good things to it – like everyone learned to have more responsibility than normal and we learned a lot about technology, whether at distance schooling or work. It was also very nice to have more time with my family and of course I had loads of time to read.

My motto for 2021 is: #1 Stay positive. #2 Be respectful to everyone.

Because of the virus we didn’t go away during the break and we only went out to play tennis or to go for walks or biking – so I spent pretty much time inside reading. This book my parents got me as a present on Christmas eve. After reading the Funjungle and Spy School novels and also part of the Moon Base Alpha series, I have to say this book is the best book Stuart Gibbs ever created! I loved it a lot and I got into trouble a couple of times because it was so hard to stop reading to have family dinner or lunch or breakfast or what so ever. I pretty much read it in one go because it was soooo good.
