I want to clear up right away is that this was mom’s idea not mine but if she thinks I’m going to write down my feelings in here or whatever she’s crazy so just don’t expect me to be all dear diary this and dear diary that the only reason. I agreed to do this at all is because I figure later on when I’m rich and famous I’ll have better things to do than answer people’s stupid questions all day long.

November Saturday most people look forward to the holidays but the stretch between Thanksgiving and Christmas
just makes me a nervous wreck if you make a mistake in the first 11 months of the year it’s no big deal but if you do something wrong during the holiday season you’re gonna pay for it like well maybe pinching your little brother that happened one year and I only got one stinking present it’s too much pressure to be on your best behavior for a whole month the most I can really handle is six or seven days in a row so if they move Thanksgiving to the week before Christmas it would be fine by me…

Starting Scene of a wimpy kid The Third Wheel Book 7
January Sunday I wish I’d started keeping a journal a lot earlier on because whoever ends up writing my biography is gonna have a lot of questions about my life. In the years leading up to middle school luckily I remember just about everything that I came across to. Since I was born in fact I can even remember stuff that happened to me before I was born back in those days. It was just me swimming around in the dark doing backflips and taking naps whenever I wanted. Then one day when I was in the middle of a really good nap I got woken up by the strange noises coming from the outside at the time I didn’t know what the heck I was hearing.
But, later on, I found out it was mom typing in music through these speakers she put on her belly. I guess mom thought if she played classical music for me every day before I was born it would turn me into some kind of genius. Those speakers came with a microphone and when mom wasn’t playing music she was telling me everything that was going on in her life and then mommy went to the store where she bought you an adorable blue hat with little ducklings on it and when dad came home from work mom would give me a blow-by-blow of his day so then I told.

The Starting Scene of The Long Haul
June Friday: If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my many years of being a kid it’s that you have zero control over your own life. Ever since school that out, I haven’t had anything I’ve needed to do or anywhere I’ve needed to be as long as the air conditioning was working and the TV remote had batteries in it. I was all set for a relaxing summer holiday but then out of the blue, this happened Mom walks in and says pack your bags we’re going on a road trip.
This isn’t the first time Mom has sprung a trap on us without any warning. Last year on the first day of summer she said we were going upstate for a few days to visit aunt Loretta at the nursing home. It wasn’t exactly my idea of a fun way to kick off a summer one time when we visited on Loretta. Her roommate grabbed me and wouldn’t let go until a staffer gave her a chocolate chip muffin but mom was just bluffing about going to the nursing home at breakfast. The next morning she told us where we were really going we’re going to Disney World me and my brother Roderick were happy because we were both dreading spending the first week of our summer holiday playing shuffleboard at a nursing home but when my little brother Manny heard about the change in plans he totally lost it.

Diary of a wimpy kid-Book 15 “The Deep End”
The brand new diary of beacon book that came out today book 15 the deep end and I think it’s pretty good and I’m pretty surprised how good Jeff Kinney’s wimpy kid books are. Still he’s done 15 and he’s still got some fresh ideas this one already did the description on the back when Greg when Greg Hefley and his family hit the road for a cross-country camping trip. They’re ready for the adventure of a lifetime but their plans hit a major snag and they find themselves stranded in an rive park that’s not exactly a summertime paradise things only get worse for the fleas. When the skies open up and the water starts to rise making them wonder. If they can save their vacation or if they’re already in too deep.
So yeah it’s pretty good I have a couple complaints about it though it covers like the exact same formula of book nine the long haul where they have a fun idea for a summer vacation so they go on a like road trip or this one’s a camping trip and then it ends up being a disaster and every day the mom has a new idea of how to make the trip better, but then everything just keeps sucking more, but so yeah it’s basically that and my other complaint is um it doesn’t feel very full like I didn’t feel completely satisfied I think um yeah it wasn’t very full it it like really it ends really suddenly like there’s a bunch of stuff happening and then it pretty much just ends they don’t even like.
It doesn’t even well we can interpret that they end up going home but it doesn’t even like um have that part uh but yeah so it suddenly just ends like at the climax just right there it’s in the climax and it just ends but anyway there’s some really funny and fun ideas in here that I really enjoyed reading .
So this one obviously doesn’t have very much rally and so but because he’s with his uh he’s with his family and but at this camp he meets uh these friends these uh crazy uh he makes some friends but they’re like really crazy people and they all have weird nicknames. So they’re kind of his friends but then they get like in a fight with these teenagers that are slingshot ting watermelons at them and so then they try to get back at them and then the way they do that gets them in trouble and they like frame Greg for all of it.
So yeah you could you can expect as much and so how does it start uh from the last book wrecking ball when their house got destroyed um well and also if you don’t want any spoilers uh turn off the video um like well I’m not going to like spoil everything I’m just kind of going to give you the basic plot but yeah if you if you want to just read it for yourself and just turn it off but yeah so it starts they are living in their grandma’s base basement and then their other grandma calls for them to get their uncle Gary out of uh their other uncle Gary’s uh camper out of their driveway so they go to it and then they realize they could have a fun vacation with it.
So they go camping and there of course there’s a lot of disasters like the long haul like they uh have an encounter with a bear for one and yeah there’s lots of funny moments like you’re gonna enjoy it. If you’re a wimpy kid fan it might not be your very favorite but you’re gonna like it and lots of hysterical moments like backfired pranks that they do on the campout that are funny and yeah there’s a lot of there’s a lot of really funny moments like this is a great book but like I said just too similar to the long haul and like not very complete in my opinion and it doesn’t have any depth like it’s just one event after another and that’s all.
It’s mostly just straight up entertainment and laughs like there’s it’s not very realistic like there’s a lot of crazy things that happen that you’re like no that that couldn’t happen. Anyway sorry this might not be the best review ever um you might have a completely different uh point on this book point of view on this book. But anyway yeah I think it’s a pretty good book I recommend it uh even if you haven’t read the Olympic good books if you’re watching this for some reason not as a wimpy kid fan you’ll still like it.
So it’s probably worth buying for how much is it like 10 15 and yeah it’ll probably be in the libraries maybe it’s better for that the only reason I own all of them is because I kind of collect all of them it’s probably more worth getting it from the library since it’s it’s like not the most reread able but well yeah I guess I would read it uh quite a few times. I could I’m probably going to read it quite a few times um I just got it today and I read it for the first time with my brother and I probably am going to end up reading this one multiple times it’s it’s like the long haul in the getaway a couple of my favorites um just kind of you just read it for fun it’s just funny, but there’s not really a like solid plot but I definitely recommend it I think it’s good. Anyway I also am posting a ranking with all 15 of the diary will be good books plus the two awesome friendly good books and yeah so make sure to check that out uh tell me what you think of this book.
