I only picked this book up because it had been recommended to me so many times by different bloggers and I know that they usually know what they're talking about! I actually really enjoyed ready this and found myself laughing out loud quite often!! It was quick, fun, and a book that I would really recommend to reluctant readers and die hard book fans alike.
Written entirely in journal format, with a few cartoons thrown in here and there, Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney is great for those not looking for the typical novel. Middle-schooler, Greg, writes in this journal throughout one year of school, recounting different events that happen to him on a daily basis. Geeky Greg and his even geekier sidekick Rowley get themselves into lots of mischief and are almost beaten up more than once. Always, Greg keeps a rather chipper attitude, always oblivious to why people don't see the hero inside of him.
This book was laugh-out-loud funny and a very quick read. I would love to read more of Kinney's work, mainly because I know I'll have a smile on my face the whole time! I believe there is another book coming out following Greg again and I can't wait to see what adventures and troubles that one holds!
