    While many children have childhoods built upon the foundation of their favorite movies and cartoons, favorite games and amusement parks, etc, mine was built on books. Picture books, pop-up books, chapter books. Books, in general, were my obsession, and more specifically, the Boxcar Children. Genuinely, this was one of my favorites as a child. The idea that these brave orphans had just each other to guide themselves through life was an entirely captivating and revolutionary idea from my seven-year-old perspective. Living in an abandoned boxcar was a very creative and interesting idea that I find incredibly different even at my age looking back. The orphans were all beautifully created and their personalities define each of them as great people with their unique flaws and beauties. As the Boxcar Children was a series, there was a different plot in each book, but each was just as good as the previous with brilliant plotlines that had younger me entertained for the entire book and even hours after, still processing the information. A highly recommended series from current me recalling all the past memories and from younger me still fangirling internally.

    candyexpress's book review was featured in Dork Diaries 1: Tales from a Not-So-Fabulous Life.
    Dork Diaries has been another staple book series as a child. The humor in this book, and the series in general, never failed to amuse me. The main character, Nikki, was genuinely one of the most lovable characters ever to be created is extremely relatable and exciting to follow around in her journey of middle school. Assisting characters like her friends, her parents and her sister (BRIANNA IS THE CUTEST) were also nicely developed with depth, personality, and serve a purpose in moving the story forward. Plotlines were extremely adorable and fit the humorous vibes the book radiates with. The drawings are also applaudable. I still remember spending hours trying to recreate the characters on my own. It never worked, but the drawings never failed to captivate me with their incredible details. Highly recommend for a good laugh.

    candyexpress's book review was featured in Bad Kitty.
    Such a cute easy book to read and understand (as well as the rest of the series). The plotline is very simple and easy to understand and follow without any struggle as the author most likely intended. However, the simplicity of the concept does not take away from the book overall, actually. It instead adds to the personality of the book and makes it very humorous. Bad Kitty's personality is awfully petty but awfully amusing and adorable. The drawings in the books are incredible as well. Great skill is behind every word of narration and dialogue as well as every doodle on each page.

    candyexpress's book review was featured in The Red Pyramid (The Kane Chronicles, Book 1).
    Rick Riordan is one of those authors that just never disappoint. The Red Pyramid was an incredible read for me. At first, I was slightly hesitant in starting because I was not used to the realm of Egyptian gods and goddesses. I preferred my little bubble of Greek gods and goddesses that Rick Riordan had built for me when he had written the Percy Jackson series. However, I gave it a try and I do not regret it at all. The Red Pyramid had a brilliant amount of description. The number of scenes where I could straight up picture where everyone was and have a mental film running through my mind as I read was endless. Rick Riordan was able to paint a vibrant picture for me as the reader as I went from one page to the next. The characters were all nicely developed with strong personalities and characteristics contributing a lot to the plotline (which may I add was genius). Of course like all the books Riordan has ever written, the humor was not lacking whatsoever. I enjoyed the thrill I experienced while reading this book along with the knowledge I gained about the Egyptian gods and goddesses.

    I've heard of two of the books in the series; I've read the first one. It was probably the best book within the fantasy/mystery genre that I've ever read. I'm excited to read the other ones in the series. I would also like to share them with a friend who really likes these kinds of books.

    This was a great read, and I definitely recommend it to people who like a tad bit of mystery and a bit of action. Warren is a descendant of many Warrens, and as you can tell by the title, he is the 13th in his line. He is currently living with his Uncle in a hotel, and his uncle is about to marry a wife, Warren's aunt. She seems to be good at first, but after Warren's uncle leaves, she's not as she seems. Warren's family has a hidden treasure and Warren and his aunt are both on the look for it. But when things get a bit too harsh with Warren and his aunt, Warren sets out to find the treasure by himself. But what will happen to Warren? Read this nail-biting novel to find out!
