Zom-B by Darren Shan

Zom-B by Darren Shan

The book Zom-B is about a zombie apocalypse breaking out all over the world but one breaks out in London when B Smith is in school so B has to escape the premises.

My favourite character is B because B is just all round awesome. My least favourite character is B’s dad because he is a racist monster.

My favourite part of the story was when the outbreak started. I didn’t like the ending because I wanted B to live.

I liked this book because it’s a HORROR.

Aaron

The horror continues in Zom – B Underground.

Greg starts hanging with another boy to try and make Rowley jealous but then Greg realised that Rowley didn’t care because he was hanging with a boy named Brian. Rowley didn’t seem to notice that the boy called “Cool Brian” was a different boy every day and that Rowley’s parents are paying this guy to hang around with him.

The Ugly TruthGreg started by taking pictures of him pretending that he had loads of friends and having loads of parties, making scenes by himself, then he got busted by his mom.

Greg is so wanting to grow up. He goes to this place called the lock-in. They lock you in the place – it is only for one night – and they play games and do lots of activities. One of the games they played was Snakes and Ladders. He hated it so much.

Dog DaysDiary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

Greg and Rowley go to the summer club and spend all of Rowley’s dad’s money on smoothies and they have to work really hard lawn mowing to pay him off.

Greg goes on holiday with Rowley and Rodrick said they weren’t men until they went on the Cranium Shaker and they did. They were given a time to be back at and they weren’t so Rowley’s parents were mad.

They went to get an ice-cream and they all shared but Greg didn’t want a lick and pretended to be lactose intolerant but he just didn’t want to share with them.

Dork DiariesDork Diaries: Dear Dork by Rachel Renee Russell

This is basically Diary of a Wimpy Kid but a girl version which I find really good.

I would recommend this book to 10 year olds and up.

The best bit I think is the start where they have a sleepover on New Year’s Eve and they play Truth or Dare and they cover Mackenzie’s house in toilet paper because she is really horrible.

mockingjayThe Hunger Games: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Katniss is the face of the rebellion so she gets sent with Gale, Finnick, Peeta and thirteen soldiers. They have to be careful of the Capitol’s defences.

I really like this book. It is really interesting with lots of twists and turns. My favourite characters are Katniss, Prim her sister, Finnick, Gale and Peeta. I don’t like President Snow and President Coin. I ilke it when Finnick and Annie get married.

dannyDanny the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl

I like this story as it’s so good to read and once you’ve started you’ll struggle to stop. It’s so interesting and adventurous.

I like how Danny and his dad get along so well and can live a nice happy life with all they’ve got.

My favourite part is when Danny goes out of their caravan at 3am to go looking for his dad. His dad had gone out poaching for pheasants and hadn’t come back so Danny got a car from their garage and drove it to the woods to go find his dad. He found him stuck in a hole but Danny saved him.
