One Day At Horrorland, by R.L Stine

The Morris Family was going to an Amusement park but they forgot the map,so they were lost when they found Horrorland and all three of the kids wanted to go Lizzie, Luke ,and Clay,Luke's best friend. Lizzie and Luke really wanted to go I mean REALLY so they went and they got to go on any ride they wanted.They went to lots of rides and on every one of them they got really scared because the sines said the weirdest things like on a slide ride the sine said:Doom Slide.Will You Be The One To Slide Forever?and then:Warning!-You May Be The One To Slide To Your Doom!That's creepy.But will they live??

What I like about the story is I always ALWAYS want to just want to jump in the book and go with them and enjoy my frights with them (even though it's supposed to be a scary book.), like the part where Lizzie,Luke,and Clay go down the slide and find Clay missing,and the part where they go in the hall of mirrors.

31 Days Of Goosebumps

I am going to be writing 31 Goosebumps for all of October because it is almost Halloween and every one can get a fright in books,too!

What I like about all the Goosebumps that they are very mysterious and kind of makes you wonder how it is put together. They are also good for young reader that are starting to read scary books because I wouldn't want to start with like Stephen King or anything just R.L Stine is better because he writes scary books but not TOO scary books I mean they are scary enough to scare a eleven year old girl I think it will be scary enough to scare you if you are a young reader and you like fearful books,just don't read this if you get nightmares easily then that's a REALLY bad idea because I don't want you to be getting nightmares just because I said that if you like creepy books read this,but if you like creepy books you can check this out if you want.

The Dog Who Found Christmas, by Linda Jennings

Buster was just a little puppy when he had a family and a nice warm home,but when Buster became a puppy to a little dog he began to make lots of trouble then his family didn't like him anymore so they dropped him of at the other side of town where they've never been before and just left him there. Will Buster find a new home??

What I don't like about the book is that I don't even like to think of people abandoning a dog like that.Theres a reason why they did it,but a very stupid reason because they could of trained the dog instead of leaving it. The rest of the story is not good because of his owners abandoned him, but the end is a happy ending.

Ramona Quimby Age 8, by Beverly Cleary

Ramona Quimby is a little girl who is a good artist and so is her father and her father is going to college for it.Ramona in this story gets very embarrassed because at first she gets embarrassed because she asks her mom to give her a boiled egg for lunch and at lunch everyone opens their boiled egg a different way and one of them is cracking it on their head and she did that but her mom forgot to boil it and she got a big mess.

Ramona is really just a little girl that has a life like us and the book just talks about what goes on every day and she tries to make a day normal. She thinks that her days are sopposed to be just plain peaceful days, but something weird just HAS to happen. Ramona tries to be like her sister because her sister is the one who gets all the fun things and is neat and reasposible and the goody good person in the family.

I like Ramona because in this book she tries to be perfect for everyone, such as when she was dancing and singing with her neighbor, or when she made supper with her older sister. I like her because she is like me because I feel like I try to be perfect also.

Lunch Walks Among Us (Franny K. Stein series), by Jim Benton.

Franny K. Stein is a little girl that is a mad scientist and can't help doing an experiment everyday. In this story Franny has no friends and is very sad when she goes to school because all the other kids are scared of her because she is quite different then them like she doesn't play with dolls like the other girls in her class, and at lunch everyone brings a sandwich but Franny brings crab ravioli in pumpkin sauce. Since everyone is scared of her she makes a experiment and drinks it and turns into a pretty little girl.And in the end she learns that it doesn't matter what your personality is you can still make friends.

What I like about the book is that I'm a person that likes what Franny likes,I am like Franny because I'm a person that likes science and likes gross stuff and likes skulls and squishy things, so that's why a person like me would like the book. She does some experiments and makes a doll named Chompolina and Oozette. Chompolina was a doll that would chomp other doll's heads off,Oozette was a doll that when you hug her she would gush out sticky gunk!! I read the whole series so if you like this book you'll like the series!!!

Bossy Steven (Sweet Valley Kids series) by Francine Pascal

This story is about two girls and a boy and their names are Elizabeth, and Jessica, and Steven the two girls Elizabeth and Jessica are identical and they have a bigger brother Steven. Elizabeth and Jessica look alike on the outside but they aren't alike in the inside. Elizabeth likes green and likes school and would play adventure or practice soccer outside, but Jessica likes pink and likes sharing secrets and likes recess and likes playing with her dolls and stuffed animals inside.Jessica and Elizabeth make a bet with their big brother Steven and then the bet is off.The bet that they make is if Steven wins a science fair the twins will have to do his chores for a week, but after a couple days the twins make another bet where their father has a birthday coming up and they tell Steven that they will make a birthday cake and he will too, and if their cake is better then the first bet is off.

I liked that the book has the bet and that Steven is bossy, and that it's suspenseful because I didn't know who was going to win the bet and it mattered who one the bet because I don't like Steven and because the twins would not be so bossy if they won.

Smarter than Squirrels (Down Girl and Sit series), by Lucy Nolan

Down Girl and Sit are two dogs that aren't that smart. Down Girl is the main character in the story and her neighbor Sit is allot like Down Girl in a way. Their names aren't really Down Girl and Sit they just think that. Their real names are Happy for Down Girl and Dot for Sit. They are trying to save the world from squirrels and birds because they don't understand much. They think squirrels are evil and cats too. They really like donuts and get after them allot.

What I like about the story is that they tell exactly whats happening it tells every second of the day. It tells what dogs from the real world would do like it says that Down Girl got soooo exited that she backed up in some spoiled tomatoes, the dogs chased a cat up in the tree, and the dog took a WHOLE bag of donuts off a table.

Ramona Forever, by Beverly Cleary

Ramona Forever is a story of a little girl whose Aunt gets married. So Ramona's family is very busy and there's lots of work to do!! Except that Ramona's friend's uncle is getting married with her aunt so her friend is now her cousin! I like this book because Ramona tries to save the day and guess what!!She does save the day!!!!!

What I liked about the book was that in the book the wedding was planned just like it would be planned in the real world. What I did not like about the book was that Uncle Hobart {the one whose getting married to Ramona's aunt} teases Ramona too much.

Ramona the Brave by Beverly Cleary

Ramona the Brave is a book about a little girl who always has a little adventure in her life. Her name is Ramona and she has a mother and father and a bossy sister her mother and father you can just call Mr. and Mrs.Quimby. Her bossy sisters name is Beatrice,but everyone likes to call her beezus because Ramona couldn't say Beatrice so instead she said beezus when she was younger. Ramona's Family is going to have a big thing coming up where they are going to have a new room built in their house. She gets a new room in her house and she is very exited because she gets it for 6 months when Beatrice is usually the one who gets everything first. The book is called Ramona the BRAVE because she is BRAVE.

What I like about the book is that the book told exactly what Ramona was thinking. Ramona thought she might have to hide in the girls bathroom until school was out because she would get yelled at by her teacher because she stayed in for recess without pirmission.And Ramona likes to think that shes fearless and brave because she had to face a german shepard.And she thinks that Beatrice gets everything she wants.

Karen's Witch (Babysitter's Club series), by Ann M. Martin

Karen's Witch is about a little girl that thinks her neighbor is a witch, because her neighbor (Morbidda Destiny or Mrs.Porter) plants herbs and wears long black robes. Karen is young and her parents are divorced and Mrs.Porter lives next door to her dad's house and she loves going there and she just talks about witches and all the other magical things but no one believes her. So one night she sees a witch come out of her house on a broom! So she tells her friend and she comes over. They are spying on Mrs. Porter and they hear her say to her black cat "twelve o' clock" so the next day Karen sees lots of people come over and she runs over to her friends house and they go to Mrs. Porter's house quietly and shout "WERE COMING TO GET ALL YOU WITCHES OUT OF HERE!!!" And guess what happened next?

What I just love about this book is that it scares you just a little bit because you don't know if Karen's going to get in trouble or if Mrs. Porter is actually a Witch!
