My Review of Diary of the wimpy kid books


Diary of a Wimpy Kid - 

It’s a new school year, and Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into middle school, where undersized weaklings share the hallways with kids who are taller, meaner, and already shaving. The hazards of growing up before you’re ready are uniquely revealed through words and drawings as Greg records them in his diary.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Rodrick Rules –

 As Greg begins the new school year, he’s eager to put the past three months behind him . . . and one event in particular.

Unfortunately for Greg, his older brother, Rodrick, knows all about the incident Greg wants to keep under wraps. But secrets have a way of getting out . . . especially when a diary is involved.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid, The Last Straw –

You see, Frank Heffley actually thinks he can get his son to toughen up, and he enlists Greg in organized sports and other “manly” endeavors. Of course, Greg is able to easily sidestep his father’s efforts to change him. But when Greg’s dad threatens to send him to military academy, Greg realizes he has to shape up . . . or get kicked out.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dog Days - 

Greg, a self-confessed “indoor person,” is living out his ultimate summer fantasy: no responsibilities and no rules. But Greg’s mom has a different vision for an ideal summer . . . one packed with outdoor activities and “family togetherness.”

Whose vision will win out? Or will a new addition to the Heffley family change everything?

Diary of a Wimpy Kid, The Ugly Truth - 

Greg suddenly finds himself dealing with the pressures of boy-girl parties, increased responsibilities, and even the awkward changes that come with getting older—all without his best friend, Rowley, at his side. Can Greg make it through on his own? Or will he have to face the “ugly truth?”

Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Cabin Fever –

The authorities are closing in, but when a surprise blizzard hits, the Heffley family is trapped indoors. Greg knows that when the snow melts he’s going to have to face the music, but could any punishment be worse than being stuck inside with your family for the holidays?

Diary of a Wimpy Kid, The Third Wheel –

A Valentine’s Day dance at Greg’s middle school has turned his world upside down. As Greg scrambles to find a date, he’s worried he’ll be left out in the cold on the big night. His best friend, Rowley, doesn’t have any prospects either, but that’s a small consolation.

An unexpected twist gives Greg a partner for the dance and leaves Rowley the odd man out. But a lot can happen in one night, and in the end, you never know who’s going to be lucky in love.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Hard Luck - 

Greg Heffley’s on a losing streak. His best friend, Rowley Jefferson, has ditched him, and finding new friends in middle school is proving to be a tough task. To change his fortunes, Greg decides to take a leap of faith and turn his decisions over to chance. Will a roll of the dice turn things around, or is Greg’s life destined to be just another hard-luck story?

Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Long Haul - 

A family road trip is supposed to be a lot of fun . . . unless, of course, you’re the Heffleys. The journey starts off full of promise, then quickly takes several wrong turns. Gas station bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a fender bender, and a runaway pig—not exactly Greg Heffley’s idea of a good time. But even the worst road trip can turn into an adventure—and this is one the Heffleys won’t soon forget.

    These are great summaries… but are they not the ACTUAL blurbs? If not you should give a try at blurb-writing one day.

    Diary of A Wimpy Kid
    The Long Haul
    Hard Luck
    The Third Wheel
    Rodrick Rules
    Dog Days
    Cabin Fever
    So the only ones I haven’t read are The Ugly Truth and The last Straw.

      I believe that Jeff Kinney has really inspired children (mainly boys) to get reading. I always like authors like him because they give a different prospect of reading which is extremely enjoyable. Anyone who hasn’t read one of The Diary Of A Wimpy Kid books I will definitely recommend it.

      Good post Kajin 🙂
