I need to come back to Bloggy world...

...And that means doing another book review. :( :(:( :( :( :( :( Ummmmmm.................... I dunno what to do the review on. I'm currently re-reading the Harry Potter series (for the 10th time) in preparation for the 6th movie coming out soon, so I'm not really reading anything new that I can do a book review on. Hmmmmmmm............. I read a little bit of "Into the land of the Unicorns" 'cuz it's by Bruce Coville, but it was really stupid, so I stopped. Uuuhhhhh.... this is getting really stupid. I'm just gonna do a book I listened to a few weeks ago.





Clementine

It's pretty much the exact same thing as Junie B. Jones, except that this girl (who's name is Clementine) is a little older, and she doesn't talk as bad (as in bad grammar) and she has a friend that is older than her and she is much cuter.
When the book starts she is in trouble for 'helping' her friend Margaret get glue out of her hair by cutting it all off.
Then she is in trouble for trying to dye Margaret's hair red.
And then for cutting of her own hair to 'make Margaret feel better'.
And then......... the list keeps going. Clementine is afraid of being 'the hard one' in her family, but no matter how hard she tries, she is all ways getting into trouble. She is afraid if she is 'the hard one' her parents and little brother will want to get rid of her. When she overhears her parents ordering a cake that says "Good Bye and Good Riddance" she is sure that her worst fears are being realized.......... but are they?
I liked this because it shows a lot of feeling, even though it's written for little kids. (and FYI, I listened to it on Audio Book w/ my little brothers, I DO NOT go around reading 1st grade books)
It was really cute, though, I liked it.

Oh yeah, and I promise to write what I did at Girls Camp tomorrow (or as soon as I get the pictures)

  1. I go around reading first grade books, but that's mostly because I have kids who beg me to. :)

    I actually hate to admit how much I enjoy Junie B. Jones, because on the one hand she is totally obnoxious and sometimes I want to punch her in the face, or punch her parents in the face for not punching her in the face. But just when I think I'm going to need to punch someone in the face, she says something hilarious. It's very embarrassing for me to say that in public, but it's true.

  2. "she doesn't talk as bad (as in bad grammar)" hehehehehe. Sorry but that's just funny to me.

    Welcome back (again) let's hear about camp!

  3. I spelled 'grammar' right, too. I'm such a nerd sometimes. :)

SERIOUSLY, people? What is the point of blogging if nobody comments? If you can't think of anything to say about the post, THEN JUST SAY "HI"!

Have a nice day.
