Nerve tells the story of a girl named Vee who chooses to be a player in a dangerous game of dares and money. The game takes a twisted turn when her and five other players are directed to a secret location for loads of prizes. Suddenly they’re playing for everything or nothing, with their lives on the line.
It was very interesting and that was partly why I enjoyed it. Also, I loved the intensity of the middle section of the book. It was extremely entertaining.
I’m sorry but the movie does sound a lot better. (I haven’t watched it so I can’t say anything). Also, if it was meant to be a single book why wasn’t the ending more closed in. I didn’t really like the ending.
How To Keep A Boy As A Pet tells the story of a girl called Circe who starts a blog to use her journalism skills to blog about her life and ask to her readers how to help her get a proper boyfriend by the end of summer.
The romantic part was really good and the title really drew me in.
I didn’t really like the plot and the book didn’t really appeal to me.

GENRE/TYPE: Choose Your Own Story/romance
AGE RATING: 8+
BOOK RATING: 2/5
It’s the last day of school and Frankie Jones is looking at a long boring summer by herself. But then…
1. She gets a surprise chance to go to London. She really wants to go but it means she will see her old boyfriend who didn’t bother to stay in touch since they last met.
2. Her dad invites her on a beach holiday. But when she discovers her dad’s new girlfriend and her daughter Ellie are also coming on their trip, Frankie’s not sure how she feels. Will she get to spend any time with her dad at all? Or will she be expected to hang out with Ellie, her new best frenemy?
I liked being able to choose different decisions of the character and the plot was pretty strong.
I thought that some of the endings were a bit unrealistic and there were some boring parts in the book.
The Series Of Unfortunate Events tells the tale of the three Baudelaire siblings whose parents die in a mysterious fire. Their guardian a banker called Mr Poe has to find them various foster parents that mysterious die or disappear. The reason for this is a mysterious guardian who wants the fortune the Baudelaire siblings got from their dead parents.
This story had a really good plot. It had many plot twists that were really suspenseful. The writing was very descriptive and you got to know the character really well by the end of the series.
I thought that this series went on for a bit too long. (13 books was too much even for me).
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 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.
