Calling on Dragons, by Patrica C. Werde — October 12, 2017

Calling on Dragons, by Patrica C. Werde

download (2)Cimorene is back again. This time she is Queen of the Enchanted Forest. With another problem. This time Mendanbar’s magic sword has gone missing. They know what happened to the sword, though. The wizard’s stole it. (they finally did something right) So Cimorene goes on an epic quest to find the sword and save the Enchanted Forest with Morwen, a blue donkey with wings called Killer, Telemain, and Kazul. Will Cimorene get the sword back before it is to late?Design O

I loved this book!!!! It was hilarious. I was laughing out loud!!!! I mean, there was a blue floating donkey who was always hungry and always getting into trouble. If you don’t think that is funny then you don’t have a sense of humor. The plot was good and Kazul was back!!!! Which means that the dragons were back!!!! I love the dragons!!!! But enough of that. Lets get cracking!!!!

The characters were amazing!!!!! I loved them all!!!! They were once again very funny and realistic. My favorite character was Killer. He was the blue donkey with oversized wings. He also could hover without wings for a time. The author always shocks me with her characters. They are the funniest characters that I have read ever. Yet. I hope that the next characters are as funny. Or funnier. It depends. I really couldn’t care by this level of humor. Another character I loved were the cats. I loved the cats. They were adorable!!! I just love cats in general. They are an enigma to me. I want to understand them. But that might just be because zI have grown up with cats.

The plot was also very good. I was always engaged and I even picked up the book in class a few times (sorry not sorry). I was captivated from page one to the end of the book. I hope the last book is as engaging as this one. *cries because the next book will be the last and I want it to go on forever* But the series cannot go on forever and so I will have to live with rereads. But those aren’t horribly bad. I will be fine doing that until the day I die. (Not) Except that I cannot do that because I have the book blog to run and because I want to read more. So I think I will be done with the review now.Design O

I loved this book and I recommend it to everyone. Please remember to fill out my survey. You can find the link on my about page. Thanks for Reading!!!! Have a Great Day!! -Annalee and Buttons

Searching for Dragons, by Patricia C. Werde

download (4)Cimorene is back. But where is Kazul? Cimorene is determined to find out. Lucky for her she has help: Mendanbar. The king of the Enchanted Forest. They decide to work together to save Kazul from what ever happened to her. So with a broken magic carpet, a magic sword, and lots of buckets of soapy lemon water the duo set off to save Kazul. Design O

I loved this book just as much as the last one. Please read it. The new characters were just as good as the old one. I had an issue with this book because there were not as many dragons. But that was it. Please read this book. I want you to. Please read it. I want you to. Everyone deserves to read this book. Well, anyone who loves strong princesses and dragons would love this book.

I loved the characters. They were really funny. I loved the gargoyle. He was the funniest. All the characters were really interesting. The wizards grew even more sneaky. I wished we heard more from the dragons. But we just hung out with Mendanbar and Cimorene. (Such interesting names) I also liked that there was a love element but it was not instant love. I think that instant love is over rated. I love all the characters. They were very descriptive. I know that I am fangirling way to much but I cannot help it. Please read this book. Mendanbar was an awesome new character. He acted like the normal love struck teenager. Except that he was ruling the Enchanted Forest. Their new relationship was very realistic. I hope that you all will like this book if you read it. The characters were my favorite part. 

The plot was okay. I didn’t like the plot as much as I did the plot of the first book. Once again I wish I heard more about the dragons. For all you dragon lovers out there, there are not as many dragons in this book as there were in the first book. I loved the dragons just the same. They were very awesome. I want more!!!!! But, I am lucky. I have the rest of the series at home just waiting for me to pick them up. So I want to go home now. Please let me go home now so I can read the next book. I want to read the next book now!!!! Please let me go home and start reading the next book now. I know that I still have more school to go to.  I feel so sad for myself right now because  I still have more school to go. I want to go home!!!!! So that I can read more!!!! But I guess I can read something else. I loved this book and I hope you read it and love it too.

Dealing With Dragons, by Patricia C. Wrede — October 10, 2017

Dealing With Dragons, by Patricia C. Wrede

download (2)Princess Cimorene is a princess who refuses to be proper. She doesn’t like dancing, etiquette, or just being a princess in general. So she decides to run away. Cimorene gets advice from a talking frog that tells her where to go. So listening to this she finds herself in a cave of dragons and decides that to save herself from death she will become a dragon’s princess. This book tells all that and what happens next.Design O

This book was amazing!!!! WOW!!!! This is for all you dragon lovers out there. Read this book. Please read it. Everyone will love this book. Aren’t I lucky that I have the rest of the series on hand so that I can read the rest of them now? I know that I am happy. I am also happy because I got my first review copy from Edelweiss. I have had a very good day in all. But lets get in with the review.

The characters were really funny. I say that the characters were really descriptive in lots of book reviews but I am going to say it again. The characters were really descriptive. I liked the dragons the most. The other princesses were really stuck up and I was sort of sad to have heard about them. But not Cimerone. She took it in stride and stuck with it. Well, she also wanted to be a dragon’s princess so I don’t think that really counts. But still. The dragons were really interesting and I cannot wait to read the next books. The relationships between the dragons and their princesses were really interesting. Some dragons treated their princesses like servants and some just ignored them. Kazul and Cimorene’s relationship was in between that. I wanted to be a dragons princess so bad just by hearing about the characters. I wonder what I will think when I talk about the plot.

The plot was amazing as well. At first I was curious about why anyone would want to stop being a princess. Then I learned about being a dragon’s princess and I wondered why I had ever thought that being a normal princess was fun. Cimorene got to spend hours in the library. I mean, a dragons’ library must have something interesting. Right? The plot was really good. I was really happy to be reading this book because it is something really cool. I have never done this before when I read a book but I did it while reading this one. Can you guess what it is? I laughed out loud. I never do that. Ever. I hope I do that in the next book as well. Please read this book. I am begging you to read this book. I am using my authority as a book blogger to command you to read this book. Please read it.Design O

MOXIE, by Jennifer Matheiu

download (27)Viv is fed up. Fed up with the dress codes, with sexual abuse, and with make me a sandwich. So she decides to the best thing ever. Create a feminist zine telling everyone how mean the football team and the sexist principal are wrong. Viv just uses the zines to rant but she is shocked when people actually start responding. What will happen to Moxie?Design O

First, I am not ashamed to tell you all how great this book is. This book is great. You really will want to go start a riot for women’s rights. Actually, after I finish these posts I might actually do that. Please don’t be ashamed. This book justs really gets your blood boiling. Luckily, the next book I am reading is very calm and laid back.

The characters were very realistic. They acted like the normal average high schooler. Every character trait was accounted for. Even the ones you would rather not hear about. The author is really descriptive and I thought that I could meet these characters and nothing out of the ordinary would happen. I totally shipped Viv and Seth. They were such a cute couple. The friend cliques and the lunch table groups were really accurate. Does the author have a kid or did she just do a lot of research? Well, the characters were such realistic people, even though you didn’t always like them because they were so realistic. I felt like I connected with most of the characters really well.

The plot was also really realistic. It felt like I could walk in there and know where everything was. The girls’ fight was like so many other girls’ fights across the country. Except that this one was not real and everyone is reading it. Sorry people, the book is not real. I know it feels this way but it is not true. I wish this book were real though. That would be amazing. I wish we heard more about what happens to girls more. But since I am not the news person I cannot do that. I wish I could though.  Maybe I will read a blog about feminism. I could totally do that. Well, all in all, this ook was really good and descriptive and if you have not read it you should.

Legend, by Marie Lu

download (26)June is the prodigy with the perfect score. Day is the genius who failed the trial. Together these two will change the Republic as we know it. But now I’m getting ahead of myself. Right now, Day is a criminal and June is the prodigy with the perfect score. Soon June and Day will meet and what will happen next will blow your mind.Design O

I loved this book!!!! It was amazing!!!! Please read it!!! The characters were amazing!!! The plot was a shocker. I was hooked from the beginning to the end. I will be really happy if you read it. If you bread it I will talk to you for hours on end about it. And even if you don’t I will anyway. So either way you will hear me talk about this book.

The characters were my happy point. They were really thee best things in this book. Now don’t get me wrong. Everything was amazing but I liked the characters the most. I think I am going to write Marie Lu to tell her what a great writer she is. If I don’t write that I sent that email in the next post remind me in the comments. I liked June the most. She had a good past and a good future. But she threw it away for Day. I thought that was really sweet. I have to go to the bookstore to buy the sequel? Can someone give it to me now? I have this obsession with those clothes that the army wears. Especially the black capes. But enough of this. I will just keep rambling. Onto the plot.

The plot was amazing too!!!! It was not as good as the characters. But I don’t think anything can be as good as those characters. I liked hearing about all the settings. They made me want to go there to San Francisco. Except now I will be disappointed when I do go. When I go now I will be excepting this and I will fell very let down. So maybe before I go I will read a book on the city as it is now. That would help. Does Marie Lu only write distopian novels? I hope I spelled that right. Please read this book if you have not. Actually, using my authority as I book blogger I command you to read this book. Please read this book. If you do you will love it. Design O

Wonder Woman: Warbringer, by Leigh Bardugo — October 7, 2017

Wonder Woman: Warbringer, by Leigh Bardugo

th (26)Diana is running a race when she hears a girl screaming. Diana is a warrior princess on Themyscaria. (lets hope I spelled that right) She is next in line to the throne. But no one respects Diana because she is not a true Amazon. Alia was going on a cruise when the ship blows up. Saved by a strange creature Alia wants to go back home. Diana wants peace. Can they both get what they want?Design O

I loved this book so much!!!! It made so much sense to me. I mean I expected to see Diana and her friends walking down the street. This book was super descriptive. I could envision everything. Will there be a second book? I need to know. I cannot wait for it if there is. But lets quit with my rambling and get book talking!!!!

I loved the characters. They were so diverse. I mean like look at them!!!!

 

 

See? I told you so. Look at how empowering these quotes are. I think I liked Nim the most. I could relate to her the most. I mean I could relate to all of them but I understood Nim the most. I felt like she was the one who would probably have a blog.  I liked Diana’s quote the most.  Only a real hero would say something like that. Theo’s quote was pretty good too. I didn’t like Jason at all. I mean really people. I won’t say anything because some people have not read this book. All the characters were really diverse and realistic. I felt like I could be walking down the street and meet one of the and not know that they were some of my favorite characters in a book. I loved the characters a lot. They were super diverse and realistic. But now for the plot.

The plot was really cool. It was the best idea ever. I can’t wait for the next book in the DC Icons series. Batman: Nightstalker. I think that’s what it’s called anyway. And. The best part. Is that this book is going to be written by Marie Lu. I am so happy. The plot was very suspenseful and I was chewing my nails while reading this book. The way the author threw in all those other gods was really cool. I want another story about them. The book just drew me in and didn’t spit me out until the last page. Has there been a Wonder Woman book before this one? If there has please tell me so that I can read it. I want to read another Wonder Woman book. Please tell me there is another Wonder Woman book coming out from Leigh Bardugo. I need to know. I think that everyone should read this book. If you have not you should. Please. Read this book and tell me how you felt about it.

I saw all my friends playing on the school computers and decided that while they were playing games I would be doing something productive and started a blog. I called my blog Buttons Book Reviews because I have a stuffed toy called Buttons. I was overjoyed when I got my first follower. That was not my parents! I think everyone is happy when that happens. And then I slowly got more followers. Now I have to thank all of you who have followed my blog so far. I’ll do a big thank you or something when I reach 100 followers.

Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline

download (2)OASIS is the best game in the world. It lets you forget your problems and go to a virtual reality. And the best thing is: it’s free. When the creator of the game died he put a game in his will. The game is this: Halliday has hidden an Easter egg somewhere in the game. Whoever finds the egg first wins, and gets super rich. Parzival has found a clue to the Easter egg. And everything starts getting out of hand. If you read Ready Player One you will have immersed yourself in a tale of acceptance, love, laughter, and a challenge.

Design O

I loved this book so much. It was amazing. I thought that this book was a big plot twist. I can’t wait for the movie. If you have not read this book you should. I as a book blogger am using one of my many powers to recommend this book to whoever has not read it. I think I did that right. Either way you should read this book. It is awesome. I command you to read it. 

The characters were amazing. I like the idea that you can be best friends with someone even though you have never met them in real life. That was a key point to me. And the way that everyone is not  as they seem and you won’t know anything about unless you meet them in real life. The whole Aech thing really shocked me. But their reasons for doing it were reasonable. I loved the characters so much. They were amazing. Can I marry Parzival now? HE sounds so real. They all do. I would like to write a book someday. I hope it will be as good as this one. Or at least the characters. They are awesome. I believe I have talked about the characters enough. Now for the plot.

The plot was amazing. I think it was a lot like Warcross. But, hey, Ready Player One came first. It was very suspenseful and you didn’t know anything for a period of time. Like a blackout. That was the best plot idea ever for me. My favorite line was the last one in the book. I am not going to say it. My favorite scene was when Parzival and Art3mis meet in real life for the first time. That scene brought tears to my eyes. But meeting Aech was a shocker. I was not expecting what was coming at me.  But if you have not read this book you should. Look above. At the first paragraph. I loved this book. I hope you do as well.

Design O

I have a special announcement. I am starting a book!!!!!!! Isn’t that exciting? Please tell me what you think. I got inspiration while writing this post. It was like getting struck by lightning. I loved this book and I will love this post forever. Thanks for Reading!!!!!! Have a Great Day!!!!! -Annalee and Buttons

Divergent, by Veronica Roth — October 1, 2017

Divergent, by Veronica Roth

th (25)Beatrice is a normal Abnegation. She is sixteen years old and is about to get sorted into her faction. But when she takes the test she is called Divergent. Divergents can choose between factions and they cannot be controlled. Being Divergent is not good. If you are not careful you can be killed. 

Design O

I loved this book!!!! It was so interesting!!!! It grabbed you from the first page. You cannot put this book down. Or maybe someone else can but I can’t. It is just too good. I loved hearing about all the things in the book. If you pick up this book you will love it. I did. So now lets get on with the review.

The characters were amazing. I loved hearing about them. Tris was my favorite. I love her. She is so brave. All the characters were pretty brave. Except for Al. He was not brave and I was sort of happy when he died. I feel like if I met any of them in a book store we would have a great time together. If any of these characters would actually go a book store besides, Eurdite. I could understand why the characters were doing what they did. I liked that because in some books you don’t understand anything about the characters. But not with these characters. They were actually pretty good. Enough wit the characters. Let’s get on with the plot.

The plot was very interesting. It seemed like The Giver by Lois Lowry because of the sorting into factions and jobs. But that is just me. I did think that the author had done this really well. I cannot wait to read the second book. I need to go and buy it. But never fear, I will soon. I  love this book and this series. It is awesome. My favorite character is Tris. I love her spunk. I love how strong and tough she is. Even if she doesn’t look the part. I enjoyed the whole book in general. It was really good. I loved this book and I hope I can get the second book soon.
