Hi y’all its Abby reporting for duty again on my mom’s awesome blog [Did I mention it’s awesome?] I just read Diva Diaries #2 written by Angie Spady. I really liked this book for multiple reasons listed below:
1) The entire book had really fun and cool verses for me to look up in my Bible during my quiet time.
2) Angie Spady relates this book to tween girls [teens too!] who have regular lives. The book includes things like dealing with crushes, mean girls, and of course, God.
3) I just love the entire book because Angie always hooks you in like when Catie has to endure Miranda Maroni’s endless bulling! You don’t want to put the book down until you find out the resolution just like you don’t let go of perfect fish you’ve hooked on your line.
Diva Diaries #2 is pretty much a sequel with lots more drama, and maybe it includes a Bearded Dragon which eats ‘delicious’ crickets!!! Catie continues to endure Miranda Maroni and Emily, Miranda’s #1 fan!! Join Catie Conrad, her annoying brother, Jeremy [or Germ], Sophie, Josh Henderson, and the one and only Miranda Maroni and her trusty sidekick, Emily in this once in a lifetime awesome book that will keep you on the edge of your sewing machine.
In my opinion, this book is most interesting for girls aged 8-12.
From the publisher:
Catie Conrad, fashionista extraordinaire, is back in action in the 2nd book in the Desparate Diva Diaries series, along with best friend Sophie, her brother the “Germ,” and of course Miranda Maroni—her least favorite person on earth! The desperate diva isn’t sure which is worse: the drama at school, or her stressed-out home life.
Luckily things get put into perspective as Catie Conrad finds that with faith in God, ALL things are possible.
Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Matthew 10:26 Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.
I also read this other book called, Bash and the Chocolate Milk Cows by Burton W. Cole and illustrated by Buddy Lewis. This book is mostly about a boy named Raymond (also known as Beamer) and his cousin, Bash. Raymond is a city boy staying with Bash. Bash is a prankster and it’s almost April Fool’s Day! Bash starts playing tricks with plastic spiders and shaving cream on Raymond, but Bash has an even more bigger, better, tremendously huge prank to play on April Fool’s day for his dad! Lots of Hershey’s syrup, chocolate mix, and more chocolate deliciousness join Raymond and Bash on their big prank…to make the cows make chocolate milk.
1) I liked this book because it was humorous and so funny.
2) It’s a mystery too — Who’s the maple syrup thief?
3) It had the most amazing features like playing spaceship in the chicken pen. Absoulutley something I never thought of!
In opinion, this book is most interesting for girls and boys aged 8-11.
From the publisher:
Any time boring Bash visits Beamer, his crazy farm cousin, weirdness always rules. This time, Bash schemes a way for the cows to give chocolate milk on April Fool’s Day. Meanwhile, there’s a robber on the loose, and Beamer is stuck with his crazy cousin, the pesky neighbor Mary Jane, and a goat of many colors. But somehow Beamer manages to learn an important lesson about baptism and the Great Commission. It’s just another day at the farm!
Based on Matthew 16:15-16, this third book in the Bash series is hilarious fun for kids 8 to 12.
