Book Review Tuesday (4/10/18)-Daughter of the Pirate King

“HUZZAH, I’M THE PIRATE KING!!!”

 

Hey, everyone, and welcome to this week’s Book Review Tuesday!

SLIGHT PLOT TWIST-I bought this one on my kindle, and I enjoyed it greatly. A fast-paced, action packed novel, with a clever and fierce heroine to match! I hope you enjoy my review!

Daughter of the Pirate King

Alosa Kalligan, the seventeen year old daughter of the infamous Pirate King, is the fearless captain of her own ship, unmatched by hardly anyone on the high seas. Until one day, when she is kidnapped by the crew of the Night Farer, who seek to take her back to her father for a ransom. But what they don’t know is that Alosa has other plans. She has staged her kidnapping in order to find an ancient map that leads to an island filled with unimaginable riches. If she can just get the crew out of the way, she could quickly escape and do what no pirate has done before…

 

Daughter of the Pirate King was such a joy to read! What with sharp, witty dialogue, an action-packed plot, and as I said before, a heroine who is a true force to be reckoned with. Love, love love!

Also, throughout the entire book, I couldn’t help but imagine Alosa as like an older, pirate version of Merida from Brave.

Throughout the course of my life, Merida has been one of the only Disney Princesses that I’ve actually liked. I wasn’t a huge fan of the other princesses when I was little-I only really wanted to watch (and enjoyed) The Lion King and The Jungle Book and the other Disney movies which centered around wildlife. (Because, screw humans, I want AWESOME ANIMALS!)

 

Aaaaanyway, have a great rest of your day! (Thank God the weather’s warming up…)

Book Review Tuesday (7/18/17)-Brave

Hey everyone!!!

Let me just say that I had NO idea that Awkward (See Book Review Tuesday, 11/1/16) was going to have a sequel.

And it did…

…AND I WAS SO HAPPY!

I almost liked it better than the ORIGINAL, it was that good!!! If you read it, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. 😀

Brave

You may remember Jensen Graham from Awkward as a shy, sort of paranoid kid in the art club who constantly tried to warn everyone about the impending danger of sunspots. But this time, the spotlight is on him. Jensen loves nothing more than to daydream.  He wants to be an astronaut at NASA-thing is, he’s not the greatest at math, preferring instead to doodle spaceships in his sketchbook. Jensen is also picked on a lot, not just by the bullies, but from his fellow Art Club classmates. But when he joins the school newspaper, his life changes. Jenny, Akilah, and Felipe know that Jensen is being bullied, and they want to help…just as soon as they finish their weekly vlog. Can he juggle the daily struggles of middle school and survive in one piece?

 

Love. LOVELOVELOVELOVELOVE. Just as good as Awkward, if not better. Not only would I recommend it to anyone who wants to return to Berrybrook Middle School, but for fans of Raina Telgemeier, Victoria Jamieson, or anyone who just wants a funny, heartfelt graphic novel.

 

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer, and reading lots! Thank you so much, and see you next week!
