The Worst Witch

Title: The Worst Witch
Author: Jill Murphy
Rating:  4/5

Description:
Catch up on Mildred Hubble’s magical adventures at Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches with these reissued editions featuring energetic new covers. Mildred Hubble is starting her first year at Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches — and making a mess of it! She can’t ride her broomstick without crashing, she’s always getting her spells mixed up, and worst of all, the teacher’s pet, Ethel, has just become her sworn enemy.


My Sweet and Short Review:
Cute little story about a girl who is a witch and everywhere she goes disasters happen... but she also saves the day at the end! So the tv show on Netflix had to be based loosely on this book- the book is better but Netflix didn't ruin this classic at all... both are cute!

Cat

Title: Cat (Wildflowers #4)
Author: V.C. Andrews
Rating:  3/5

Description:
Cat has not yet shared in Dr. Marlowe's therapy group, but she has the darkest secret of all four girls and the most to lose by opening up.


My Sweet and Short Review:
This is Cathy story on why she is an Orphan with Parents and why she fits into the group of girls with similar problems as her own. Her mother shelters her from the world and make Cat even feel shameful about her body and the things she feels and her dad... well he is a big problem (which I won't tell ya in this) The girls act like what you would think girls would act talking to their psychologist and this is Cathy's day to tell the others why she is here. I gave it a 3 because I think I need a V.C. Andrews break- a lot of the ghostwriter's writing style and plots are the same now a days! So there ya go- first week is done YAY!

Rating: 5/5

Description:
Dapper Koala Buster Moon presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times.

Facing the crumbling of his life's ambition, he takes one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world's greatest singing competition. Five contestants emerge: a mouse, a timid elephant, a pig, a gorilla and a punk-rock porcupine.

My Short and Sweet Review:
I love this movie, I was jamming with the animals and also the stories about each character even tho their were animals so connected with real life too! Great movie for all ages!

The Ruins of Gorlan

Title: The Ruins of Gorlan
Author: Jonathan Flanagan
Rating: 5/5

Description:
They have always scared him in the past — the Rangers, with their dark cloaks and shadowy ways. The villagers believe the Rangers practice magic that makes them invisible to ordinary people. And now 15-year-old Will, always small for his age, has been chosen as a Ranger's apprentice. What he doesn't yet realize is that the Rangers are the protectors of the kingdom. Highly trained in the skills of battle and surveillance, they fight the battles before the battles reach the people. And as Will is about to learn, there is a large battle brewing. The exiled Morgarath, Lord of the Mountains of Rain and Night, is gathering his forces for an attack on the kingdom. This time, he will not be denied....

My Short and Sweet Review:
This is the journey of a small boy of the name Will and his training to be a ranger. Who are people that can hide in the shadows, climb, shoot arrows, track and etc. They aren't the strongest physical but perhaps the bravest out there. I love this Series and I think everyone should check it out!

Still Love this Book!

Title: 13 Reasons Why (book version)
Author: Jay Asher
Rating: 4/5

Description:
You can’t stop the future. 
You can’t rewind the past.
The only way to learn the secret . . . is to press play.
Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker—his classmate and crush—who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah's voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out why. 
                
Clay spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah as his guide. He becomes a firsthand witness to Hannah's pain, and as he follows Hannah’s recorded words throughout his town, what he discovers changes his life forever.

My Short Review: Alright, a lot of thoughts about this book, which the TV series did pretty much follow closely. This version of the book had a what if Hannah lived section... which in my opinion I didn't like. I know killing one self is horrible but what happened there is just as bad in the long run tho Clay and Hannah might even be able to hook up after... maybe. Tho if I was Hannah I probody would want a complete restart in life and sorts. The characters... Clay-Tony-Hannah I like the others can just shove it! And I guess that's it... well what I can sort out right now... deep book!

Goodnight, Wimpy Pikachu

Title: Goodnight, Wimpy Pikachu
Author: Brian Henry
reviewed for a friend!
Rating: 4/5

Description:
Wimpy Pikachu teaches us that wonderfully big things can come in small packages. A delightful tale of what you can do when you put your mind to it, protagonist Lyle has just arrived at the Illum Pokemon Center determined to embark on the journey of a lifetime. The ten year old boy is shy and just a little bit awkward, but deep down inside he knows he has what it takes.

And when Lyle encounters Wimpy Little Pikachu, sparks fly – literally. The fabled “Lazarus Log” is an unbreakable structure held up by stone pillars, and only those who are true of heart and destined for greatness can fracture it.

Will Lyle and little Pikachu break the mysterious Lazarus Log? Time will tell when you read Wimpy Little Pikachu.

My Sweet & Short Review:
This story is so good, and will get any child to read it. Great story- don't judge a pokemon by its size because its what is inside that counts which is a great thing to tell children! Such an easy read too! Gave it a 4 because it was so short but everything else was great!
