Before I get started into the post I just wanted to say a big sorry that I haven’t been posting for ages. I’ll will try to start posting more regularly and try fit it into my busy schedule.
Title – A Dog’s Purpose
Author – W.Bruce Cameron
Genre/Type – Adventure/Sad
Age Rating – 8-9 upwards
Book rating – 700/5
A Dog’s Purpose tells the story of a dog that gets reborn countless times. In each life the dog tries to find it’s purpose before it moves onto the next one. A Dog’s Purpose is a humorous and emotional story that shows that love never dies.
This book was very funny and resonated deeply with me. It was very well written.
I didn’t have any dislikes. This book was too perfect.
My Life Undecided is about a girl named Brooklyn Pierce who made a really bad decision and now puts her life into the hands of the readers of her new blog. This book has many ups and downs and Brooklyn is involved in both good and bad choices from her blog readers. Read to find out what they are.
I really liked this book because it showed decision making in a different light. This book was really original and romantic in parts.
The only thing I didn’t like was the fact that some of the bloggers decisions weren’t described in enough detail. (this is for me. so it may be different)

(SORRY TOO MANY TO NAME 😦 🙂 )
AUTHOR: R.A Spratt
GENRE/TYPE: Funny, comedy
AGE RATING: 7+
BOOK RATING: 6/5
Nanny Piggins is the story of a smart, kind and seriously funny pig and the three children she looks after; Derrick, Samantha and Micheal. Laugh and cry (with laughter. DUH) experience ups and downs and enjoy the antics of Nanny Piggins and her three charges as they dig to China, eat Cake and obviously deal with a runaway lion and Nanny Piggins brother (a bear named Borris).
This book was HILARIOUS!!!! I loved it. Dad and I would always read it whenever we felt sad or angry and turn our frowns upside down. I came to love Nanny Piggins and she will always have a spot in my heart, to cheer me up when I am down and make me feel like wetting my pants. 😂 😂 😂 😂
I disliked Mr Green. Well, I was pretty hard to like him. I know he was part of the story and I appreciate his part in it.
The Mysterious Benedict Society And The Perilous Journey
The Mysterious Benedict Society And The Prisoner’s Dilema
The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict
AUTHOR: Trenton Lee Stewart
GENRE/TYPE: Adventure, mystery
AGE RATING: 9+
BOOK RATING: 6/5
The Mysterious Benedict Society series tells the stories of four gifted children; Kate, Reynie, Sticky and Constance. They all respond to an add directed in the newspaper to kids only. They all feel like they have a shot and take a series of mind bending tests. They go on a secret mission to the Learning Institute for the Very Enlightened. There their friendship grows stronger and they take on challenges and learn to cheat along the way.
The Mysterious Benedict Society series is EXCELLENT!!!!!!! It draws you in and doesn’t let you go till you’ve bought all the books and read them thoroughly. The plots are really good and twist and turn leaving you wondering what’s next. The characters are relatable and really funny. I remember doing this as a book review in year six and having everyone wanting to read them by the end of my presentation!!! That’s how GOOD they are (not my public speaking).
The middle of the second book was a bit slow but apart from that there were NO faults.
