Diary of a Wimpy Kid The Last StrawEvery once in a while you need a break from glowing vampires, horrifying werewolves, philosophies, sappy love stories and end of the world page turners. Every once in a while you need to forget that you are an adult now and read something funny which reminds you of your own childhood.

Greg Heffley and his family are back again and Greg is trying to get up the courage to ask out a girl while trying to keep himself out of military school. I was surprised to find out that this book was not nearly as good as the first two Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. I did not enjoy as much as the other two because the humor that kept me hooked was almost completely gone. But its Greg whom we are talking about who is high on smart and low on luck somehow there is humor wherever he goes.

My rating: 3 out of 5. I think the series kinda grow along with Greg. In this book  Greg was bit matured than the last one focusing on getting a girlfriend. There are 9 books in this series. 8 already published and the 9th one is getting published this year.

Diary of a wimpy kid- Rodrick ruleAfter reading the first book, I decided to read all the wimpy kid diaries. ”Rodrick Rules” is the second book in the series of ”Diary of a wimpy kid”. It is as joyful journey as the first book.

Now Rodrick got hold on Greg’s diary and knows all his secrets he is threatening him and using that as a weapon against Greg. Now Greg  has to keep his second diary very much locked up, away from Rodrick’s hands. In the same time his school adventures starts like before. A wonderful, funny tale of Greg’s school and personal life.

I am sure I can’t wait to read the third book  which is already waiting for me to read it 🙂

diary-of-a-wimpy-kid 1Its better to read something light and different once in while,so I thought of reading dairy of a wimpy kid. I watched the movie based on this books long back and liked it. There are very few characters in this book and specialty of this book is its in the form of journal with pretty amazing doodles all over.

Story revolves  around Greg who is the owner and writer of the journal. His mom buys him a diary for his birthday when he asks her to buy him a journal. He writes pretty much everything what happens in his life, it is more like day to day updates about his friends, school and family drama. He wants to get popular in his school and want to make it to the school annual book. He comes up with all weird ideas to do that but somehow his one and only best friend Rowley gets more popular and his cartoon becomes hit in school. So what happens to his dream to be popular is main story here.

This book is very funny and fast going. I liked both the movie and book.  This is total entertainment not only for children but for all age groups. Go for it Zoo- wee- mama…. 🙂
