Characters I would love to be😃

Again, since I am currently reading Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone(for the fifth time) I have decided to post whatever I want regularly since some books are quite very long and with studying at home, with online math classes and other subjects with unfortunately, I have no online classes. I had to set up my own timetable, so I work nearly the whole day and I watch the educational programs on TV for my Grade. Which does not give me much time to finish a book of 300+ pages in one day as usual. Or rather, I am too busy doing those things or busy nibbling nuts and raisins posting book reviews. I must say, book reviews take a lot of time to write and I just simply can’t write little. For one of my french book reviews, La Belle et La Bête, I wrote about 2000 words which I dare say is way too much.🙄

Number 1

Hermione Granger

Well,well…ever since I read Harry Potter, I adored Hermione. A bossy-know-it-all. I love her character, her loyalty to her friends, her seriousness in her studies, her bossy voice, and the authority she has over Harry and Ron. Quite a coincidence too… we both are the same…I had always searched for books where I could relate it to myself. When a book does not feature characters similar to me, I don’t read it because it isn’t for me and it seems to another world.

Number 2

Daenerys Targaryen

So, who wouldn’t want to be her and fly on a dragon.😄 I love her bravery, her firmness in what she says, and her control over things and how she believes in herself. Goodness I have never known such a character! And I love dragons. If I owned a dragon, I would fly to Westeros. Ha Ha.

Well, I am running out of ideas…🥴 My mind is going a bit fuzzy…very unusual.

Let me think…

How about…

Number 3

Matilda

Good Gracious! I have never imagined a child of 4 to be able to read! I started reading fluently at the age of 6-7. Gosh! I wish I was her. I would have read so many books then. Maybe hundreds and thousands if I could read at her age. Would not I have discovered so many books? What a pity I could not read at the age of 4. What a pity I didn’t even know what a library was!😕😤

Okay okay. Well, I think that’s all. Besides I have to read more books. If only I was Matilda..haha.

Are there any characters you would like to be?

If yes…tell me in the comments😉

Have a nice day🤍

My favourite book series

Hello everyone,

So today I am rather posting something different that my usual English and French book reviews as I am going to share my favourite book series. The idea to post this just came to me out of the blue for nearly no specific reasons but it is true, I love telling everyone what I like and what I don’t like.😁

Okay so let’s start:

Series Number 1:

Harry Potter by J.K Rowling

Definitely…of course!

I remember when I was 8 years old, my mom borrowed Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone for me to read and I simply hated it. (Yes it is true😮)

And when I saw my cousin with the book series, I asked him if I could have a look and I don’t even know how, but I was totally immersed in the book. I was like,” Well, I thought I hated the series…”

Since I didn’t have the books at that time, I read the series online on my phone twice. Yes…twice. As soon as I finished reading the last book, I restarted it again.

And I read it again for the third time and another time after a week but unfortunately I was on the third book I still remember on Page 151…. If you want to know the story, click here:

If you have clicked on the link up and read everything, you would see what were the consequences I had to bear. It was for about 5 months.

Okay…let’s move on,

Series Number 2:

A Song Of Ice And Fire by George R.R Martin

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is image-2.png

I think I heard about the film before but I didn’t even know what it was about.

A few months ago, I discovered the book on my phone when I was scrolling through an ebook app on my phone. I don’t even know why but I felt as if I had to read the series. Incredible, I never read a book without knowing what it is about but I think some instinct made me read them. I was totally right, I was hooked on them I even downloaded the books on my phone in case I lost them. I was just reading and reading and reading.

Series Number 3:

Thirst by Christopher Pike

So well, I discovered this book by the purest of accident and I never knew I was interested in vampires.

Here is the story:

I was in my school’s library, the place where I hang out most often, alone because I don’t have many friends, I like being alone, and none of my friends share my interests.

So I found this book. I found the cover interesting but I didn’t read it and also because you only had book 3.

I found out that my enemy was reading it. Since I wanted to know what it was about and fortunately my desk is just in front of hers, I heard her talking in hushed voices about the book but fortunately I could hear.

At home, I googled the book and I found it so interesting I read it on the spot, downloading it and devouring it.

Well, so I think that all. Ooops, I think I forgot. Anyways all of my favourite book series are rated 5/5 stars and I highly recommend them.

Cheers,

Hermione

Matilda-A book review

Name: Matilda

Author: Roald Dahl

Genre: Children’s Fiction

Matilda : Roald Dahl : 9780141365466

This story talks about an extra-ordinary girl, Matilda, that at a very young age, is capable of a perfect speech and reading skills. Matilda is the daughter of her very ignorant parents, Mr and Mrs Wormwood who only seem to care about themselves and their son, Michael.

Instead of congratulating their daughter on her skills like any parent would, they simply call her a noisy chatterbox and tell her that little girls are only meant to be seen not heard.

Matilda soon decides to go to the public library when her father refuses to buy her a book. She goes all alone every day without her parents’ knowledge since her father is always at work, her mother, playing bingo and her brother goes to school. Matilda who find herself all alone every week day in the house goes to the library where Mrs Phelps, the librarian soon offers to help Matilda in finding a good book despite her astonishment at her abilities.

Soon enough, Matilda is sent to school at a late age(because of her half-witted parents) and put in the lowest form with a few warnings her father told to the headmistress, Miss Agatha Trunchbull also known as The Trunchbull. Matilda soon shows signs of being indeed a precocious child. Her very gentle teacher, Miss Honey is astonished and makes a demand to the headmistress for Matilda to be put in the highest form but she refuses. Miss Honey gives Matilda other books for higher forms for her to study.

One day, when the headmistress comes in Miss Honey’s class, she finds a newt in her glass of water (the newt in the glass of water was part of Lavender, Matilda’s friend’s prank)which freaks her out. She accuses Matilda for the joke and Matilda finds herself in a rage. She feels a sort of electriity in front of her eyes and finds herself capable to overthrow the glass of water on Miss Trunchbull(who accuses her again) using the power of her eyes.

Afterwards, Matilda tells Miss Honey that she threw the glass of water on Miss Trunchbull using her eyes and Miss Honey invites Matilda over for a cup of tea at her place where she then tells Matilda her sad story of how she became so poor and that Miss Agatha Trunchbull is in fact her aunt. Soon Matilda thinks of a plan so that Miss Honey can live a better life and she practises her powers to achieve it and she does. Miss Honey moves back to her own house and a new headmaster runs the school.

Very soon, Mr Wormwood is fleeing the country as he was found guilty of stealing cars and when his daughter pleads to allow her to stay with her teacher, he agrees, happy to have got rid of her.

Matilda soon leads a happy life with her teacher.

THE END

I found this book really amazing and I would rate it 5/5 stars
