    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.

    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 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'm glad that no one was hurt, but I wonder if that'll stay the same in the long run, with all of the space debris + uncontrolled substances in our atmosphere at the moment. I really hope that the debris doesn't hit the International Space Station, and that we do get to explore space a bit more! It would be a shame to be grounded, after all of the hard work in the 'sixties and seventies.

    felicisowl's book review was featured in The School for Good and Evil.
    Dazzling and brilliantly executed, The School for Good and Evil manages to be both heartwarming and seriously sweet. It's a middle-grade novel written by Soman Chainani, and it utilizes fairy-tale tropes to excellent effect –– it had me giggling for a while, because this is exactly the type of light-hearted, snappy humor that always makes me laugh. Sophie and Agatha, the two protagonists, represent why teenage girls shouldn't be taken lightly––they are characters that grow on you, and they are characters that grow with you. Like Shrek and other fairy-tale adaptations, The School for Good and Evil stays true to its roots. It's true that female villains are often the most delightfully wicked of all, and I especially liked how earnest Sophie's very turbulent, atypically teenage emotions were exploited––it was very real, and her motives were explained in a way that made sense. I think I would consider this a "light read," because it was coming-of-age and just very adorable, but––there was a lot of surprisingly hidden depth, lurking under the surface. Digging up the history and the world-building was enlightening, and the writing delves into answering some philosophical questions: What is the true nature of friendship? What even is "good and evil," exactly? What choices really matter in the long-run? We don't live in a world with castles and brambly forests and fairy-tale heroines, but that's the point––we can apply the lessons and questions from The School for Good and Evil and use it in our own worlds, in our own surroundings, in our own situations. I will tell you this: by far, the most important lesson that the School for Good and Evil strived to teach is that your nature is self-determined. We are not inherently good or evil, and we do not have to be what people expect us to be. We are more than capable of breaking out of our molds, and blazing our own paths into the future––in the real world, we can't travel back in time, but there is always (always!) room for change inside our souls.
