Quick quick quick review of Pi in the Sky by Wendy Mass

So like I have said a couple trillion times, I'm super super busy. Like, hardly any time to breathe busy. But I did read Pi in the Sky, so I'm going to do a super quick review of it. I's blogging time!!

Goodreads says:                                                                       

Joss is the seventh son of the Supreme Overlord of the Universe. His older brothers help his dad rule the cosmos, but all Joss gets to do is deliver pies. That's right: pies. Of course, these pies actually hold the secrets of the universe between their buttery crusts, but they're still pies.
Joss is happy to let his older brothers shine. He has plenty to keep his hands full: attempting to improve his bowling score; listening to his best friend, Kal, try (and fail) to play the drums; and exploring his ever-changing home, The Realms. But when Earth suddenly disappears, Joss is tasked with the seemingly impossible job of bringing it back. With the help of Annika, an outspoken girl from Earth, he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime...and learns that the universe is an even stranger place than he'd imagined.

I say: 

Well, Wendy Mass is one of my favorite authors, but I did not think this was her best! It was a overall good book, but some parts kind of bored me to death! Sometimes, there was to much details, or he details were not clear or no details at all (which, by the way, totally kills a book in my opinion). So in all, I would give this book 4 stars for the good plot, and humor. 

So I am *so* sorry I can't blog anymore. I have *so* much stuff to do. As you can see I *really* like using the little asterisks now. It's fun! Anyway, I gotta go. Please check out my blog often and tell your friends! And sorry for the grammar issues or typos (if any). I don't have time right now to spell or grammar check!

MMGM: A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd

Here is the review for A Snicker of Magic!

Plot Summary:

Felicity Pickle loves words. She can see them floating over people's heads. Her family never settles down; they are always moving around. So when her family settles down in her mom's hometown, Midnight Gulch, Felicity discovers that there is still a snicker of magic left in the town, and it is up to her and her new friend Jonah to find it.


A Snicker of Magic is a heartwarming book, but nothing more. I didn't connect with the characters, and I don't think it is anything special. It's good, but in my opinion a waste of time because there are much better books out there. It just seemed fake, with kids who act like adults, and a nail place/ oil change place (???) . Also, let's be honest, who says "what the hayseed"?  Like seriously, who says that?

Review: Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger

I have read Keeper of the Lost Cities many times, and let me just say YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK!  *Puts on serious face* Okay here we go.  


Plot summary:

Sophie Foster has a secret- she can read minds. She has had this secret for years, and no one knows about it- or so she thinks. One day she meets Fitz, a mysterious boy, who she discovers can also read minds. Fitz tells her she does not belong with her family, and she must pack up and leave... permanently. But in her new life she discovers that there are people out there who want her- and her secrets.


What is there to say about such an amazing book? The plot is amazing. The writing is amazing. Everything is too good for words! I connected with the characters, I felt the story. I felt it. I felt Sophie's emotions, when she cried, I cried, when she was happy I was happy. When she was angry, I was angry. The book was not too fast, not too slow, and I did not get confused at all. Keeper of the Lost Cities pulled me in and never let go. It will never ever let go. So in other words, read this book or you will regret it all your life.

MMGM: Secret Hum of a Daisy by Tracy Holczer

Here is the review for Secret Hum of a Daisy! 

Plot Summary:
  Grace (who is twelve) and her mother have always traveled around, never settling down. When Grace's mother dies, Grace must go live with her grandma, who lives pretty far away from Grace's current home. There, she finds what she thinks is a scavenger hunt, led by her mother. With the help of her new friend Jo, Grace will discover who she really is as a person, who her grandma really is as a person, and she will learn about life and the world.

My Review:

This book was truly one of the best books I have ever read. It is realistic fiction with a hint, just a hint, of magic, and good for all ages. It does not matter if you are 8 or 80, this heartwarming books is sure to please everyone. I personally loved the writing style. Tracy Holczer is like a magician because she takes the words, and instead of just throwing them on the page, she makes them beautiful, like an angel is singing them. The characters were just so real, like I could go up to them and talk to them. Tracy Holczer is one of the best writers yet, and Secret Hum of a Daisy is one of the best books yet.
