Diary of a Minecraft Alex

Title: Diary of a Minecraft Alex
Author: Mc Steve
Rating: 5/5

Description:
Alex is a Self-Sufficient Loner Who Doesn't Need Anyone. But Soon She Learns The True Value of Friendship by Working Together!

Alex is a loner in the ice plains. She prefers pigs to people. She's a vegetarian. She starts in a small hut but moves into an igloo that she then renovates. She's good at fighting mobs in the overworld, but not the Nether.

She meets Steve, who annoys her. He shares the legend that the villagers have: Herobrine put a curse on the area so that if a zombie ever kills a villager, zombie pigmen begin appearing and attacking in the overworld.

Alex returns home with the thought that this isn't her problem only to find that zombie pigmen invaded her igloo. She rushes to find Steve, to figure out how to stop the curse.

My Review:
A story about friendship, well the start of a friendship at least. Alex is a veggie eater and won't eat meat or kill helpless animals so she writes on assorted papers. She finds an igloo where what she finds inside changes her life forever. She starts out with no friends but she meets Steve and things change. I loved this story even more than Diary of a Wimpy Zombie! Nice story!

Diary of a Wimpy Zombie

Title: Diary of a Wimpy Zombie
Author: MC Steve
Rating: 4/5

Description:
It's the First Day of School and I Know It's Going to Be Epic!!

My name is Z, Z the zombie. I’m starting middle school this September, and I have no idea what the next few weeks will have in store for me. I have a funny feeling that my older brother, R, will try to cause some problems for me, but I’m going to try not to let it get me down. After all, I have my skeleton friend, Bonnie, and my zombie pigman friend, Trevor, to help me out of any hard spots that I might land myself into.

Who knows? I might even make another friend.

This school year will be my new start. I’ll try to make new friends, join a club, and annoy my older brother a little bit, too. I hope this school year is ready for me because I’m ready for it!

My Review: This small book had a lot of charm to it, that made me smile. What if Zombies in Minecraft weren't bad and what if they could friend humans. Z and Steve will make the best of friends in the future I know it and that prank made in laugh. This book is a lot like Diary of a wimpy kid but I totally love it anyways since I'm a fan of Minecraft and played it for years and watched a bunch of youtubers play it over the years. So yup... good book, good job! Now off to read the story about Alex next! See ya!

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Title: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
Author: Ransom Riggs
Rating: /5

Description: A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow-impossible though it seems-they may still be alive. A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

My Review: Soon to Come

Rebel Magisters

Title: Rebel Magisters
Author: Shanna Swendson
Rating: 5/5

Description: Tea, Love ... and Revolution!

The Rebel Mechanics aren’t the only group plotting revolution against the magical British Empire. There are rebel magisters, as well, and Verity Newton and her magister employer, Lord Henry, know that the only way for the revolution to succeed is if both groups work together. A diplomatic mission seems like the perfect opportunity for them to meet with rebels in other colonies and gather support—right under the governor’s nose.

From drawing rooms, ballrooms, and the harbor in Boston to the streets of Charleston, Verity and Henry find themselves up against stubborn factions of both magisters and Mechanics and increasingly aware that they can only really count on each other as their relationship deepens. It may take a real crisis to unite the rebel movements and rally them to the cause—but could such a crisis also tear them apart?


My Review: This book was just as good and maybe a bit better than book 1, love the story plot and characters too much... read most of this book in less then 4 hrs early this morning! She better keep going so we find out about the relationship between henry and verity!
