Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer is a humorous and adventurous fantasy novel by Rick Riordan. This book is about a homeless 16-year-old boy named Magnus Chase. He travels the nine worlds as an einherjar. He and his friends find a way to keep the Norse God’s enemy tied up on a magical island. I love the way Rick Riordan humorizes even the most tragic events. I recommend this book to anyone wanting something good to read or anyone wanting a good laugh.

Finding Nemo is one of my favorite childhood movies because it tells an amazing adventure across the ocean. The movie starts with Marlin trying to protect his son Nemo, a clown fish, who has one fin of less than average size; Nemo ends up being captured and lands in a fishbowl with other apprehended and imprisoned fish accompanying him. Nemo’s dad, Marlin, travels across the immeasurable ocean along with a new friend he made named Dory who suffers from short-term memory loss.
The Unteachables is a hilarious and interesting fiction novel by Gordon Korman. This book is about a group of kids who are disliked by teachers and students. Their teacher doesn't care about teaching anymore, but that changes when the Unteachables jump in the river to save their teacher's life. Soon after, Mr. Kermit realizes how much he loves the kids and how much he loves teaching.
Iron Man, one of the first Marvel Avengers movies, is an amazing, funny, truth-telling movie where Tony Stark, Iron Man, is kidnapped and is injured. He escapes by building a suit and then learns a semi-valuable lesson from his experience. Throughout the movie Tony Stark learns new things and improves himself. My favorite part about this movie is his suit. His suit was not made out of iron but yet he is Iron Man. I recommend this movie to many people who love watching superheroes fail while trying to fly.
Ant-Man was marvelous. It has action, comedy, soul-searching, and adorable features. From many comics Hank Pym is Ant-Man but in this new Marvel Movie Scott Lang has been chosen by Hank to be Ant-Man. At the beginning of the movie Scott Lang came out of prison for a 5-year sentence for cat burgling. He steals the Ant-Man suit because he wanted money to see his daughter again. This movie is funny and has amazing battle scenes with Yellow-Jacket, the villain.
This book is by far better than Ungifted, in my opinion. I liked how Donovan was one of the main characters in this book but I really liked how they switched the role and made Noah the second main character. In my mind I thought if Gordon Korman was going to make a second book Donovan would be the main character but it was surprising how Noah got to be a main character in this book more than he was in Ungifted.
I had an amazing time reading this book. When I started reading about Donovan Curtis it seemed like he was just a prankster and could not change. The book is about how Donovan makes a terrible prank and then gets transferred, accidentally, to a higher-level school. He tries really hard on all of his tests so that he doesn't get transferred to the school he was supposed to get transferred to. He meets new people at his new school and it takes a while for Chloe to like him but I did like how Noah, another character, had a role in this book but later in the second book he had a bigger role.
Slackers was by far one of the best books I have ever read. This was the first book I read in the series and the first book I read that Gordon Korman wrote. I love all the books that he writes because they are entertaining and interesting. Cameron Boxer is the main character in Slackers and he loves playing video games. My favorite part about the book is how he likes playing video games so much that he would create a group at school to fool his parents that he was doing something else instead of video games.
The first book in Rachel Renée Russell’s Dork Diaries series, Tales from a Not-So-Fabulous Life, captures what it’s like to be a tween/young teen girl. Nikki Maxwell must try to fit in at a new, preppy school that she attends on a scholarship. Nikki will have to navigate friends, crushes, and popular enemies, recounting it all in her diary.
