Book Review: Dork Diaries: Tales From a Not-So-Talented Pop Star.


I know this is not a good time for me to make a book review, since I have to study for my exam tomorrow, but what the heck! Haha. 🙂

Last month, I was able to get a copy of Rachel Renee Russell’s Dork Diaries. 🙂 At first, I was skeptical as to whether or not I should read this book since I have lots of backlogs. But, screw backlogs, I’m reading this book! Haha.

The story is about Nikki’s struggle to win a Talent Show. One of the awesome prizes on that talent show is a scholarship in their school. One thing lead to another, she was able to win the talent show. But just like other story goes, there few twists and turns along the way. Nikki almost lost her BFFs, she almost lost her scholarship (or so she thought), her life was ruined by one of their school’s mean girl named Mackenzie Hollister, and almost lost her connection with her crush (or maybe she’s the only one who though of that) 🙂 Anyway, one thing’s for sure, this book is good for you! 🙂


What I love about juvenile fiction or famously called as “tween novels” is the simplicity of the plot. No extra drama. No highfaluting words. No weird jargons. Few characters. All fun, no stress. I would recommend this book for those who are in the same situation with Nikki, an average school girl who prefers to call herself a dork rather than sticking her tongue out with the popular girls. 🙂 (which is not a bad thing) 🙂 So, if you’re a tween or you know someone who is a tween, better grab a copy of this book! 🙂

But if you’re like me, a grad-school student fighting for every chance to survive the day without getting a failing grade in school, this book is for you too! 🙂 I can consider this as an “in-between book”. An “in-between book” is something that you must read if in case you’re getting too fed up with all the other things that you have to do. In my current situation, I have to read 173 cases TONIGHT and 11 chapters of the prescribed book ONLY FOR ONE SUBJECT which is, by the way, all due TOMORROW. So, in order for me not to lose my sanity, I have to have an “in between book” which I can read every time I feel tired of reading academic stuff, something that will not add stress but will not make me lose my focus. 🙂 Got it? (I hope you did) :pig2:


Meet the author: Rachel Renee Russell.

Oh, and I would like you to meet the author of this book. Rachell Renee Russell is an attorney-slash-author-slash-mother. Wow! Three professions that I always wanted to be! A lawyer, author, and a mother. Well, I’m still working on it. Haha. I’m not really sure when or how, but I’ll be like her. Someday people, someday. Haha. 🙂


Now, I’ll go back to my usual self. Until my next blog post! 🙂 One big hug for everyone!

  2. I think the book title is pretty cute for a book title! And you did such a nice review about it! But as much as I want to read that book, I don’t think I can until the new few months. Good luck with all the pending school work you need to finish / read and your exam! I hope you’d ace it!

  3. Tweeny books can be the best! They’re always fun and easy reads no matter your age. I totally understand needing an in-between book. I can’t imagine having all of the reading you do, but when I have to read forty pages of economics jargon, my brain is ready to drip through my noise. 😛 Good luck with your courses!
