FRIDAY, AT HOME, 6:05 A.M.

OMG!!

I just had the most HORRIFIC nightmare!

The worst in my entire life!

I’m soooo FREAKED OUT I can barely write this.

I’m having cold sweats, my heart is pounding, and my brain is … numb with such intense … anguish it feels like it’s about to, um … EXPLODE!

WHY?!

I DREAMED I LOST MY DIARY AT SCHOOL ?!!!!!!

YES!! At SCHOOL!! Like, how CRAZY is THAT?!

The weird thing is that it seems like it actually happened. Because as soon as I woke up, all these detailed memories came flooding into my head, making me feel even more confused.

I can’t imagine NOT writing in my diary! It’s like I’m addicted or something.

In my dream I was so desperate that I found Brianna’s old doodle book at the bottom of her toy box and started writing in that instead.

But mostly I was FRANTIC that someone would find my diary and read all the SUPERpersonal, SUPERembarrassing, SUPERsecret stuff about

AAAHHH!!

That was me screaming.

WHY?

Because if I’m writing in BRIANNA’S DOODLE BOOK, that can mean only one thing….

I LOST MY DIARY

AT SCHOOL

YESTERDAY ?!!

AAAHHH!!!

I love Dork Diaries because Nikki is like a real girl and could go to my school. And, she is very funny and not that popular like me. I got the diary book for my 11th birthday and am reading lessons on how to make a very cool diary. I want to make one just like Nikki. I'm happy there is a lot of fun stuff to do in the book but I'm not done with the story part yet which is very, very,very exciting because Nikki is looking for her lost diary. If you ask me, I think MacKEnzie took it! You should read this book because it is a good one.

Okay, I'm like not even in middle school anymore but I still find myself picking up Dork Diaries from the bookstore shelf and leafing through it until I pretty much tell myself, "JUST BUY IT ALREADY!" And this one, How To Dork Your Diary, is SOOOOOO CUTE! I love the story and all the writing exercises, and the artwork is AWESOME (I even hand it to Brianna for all the random scribbling she adds to parts of the book ;-P)!

I highly recommend How To Dork Your Diary, especially if you love journaling and want to know what it's like to be dorky AND cool at the same time (that is NOT an oxymoron--it's TOTALLY TRUE!!). It's also a sweet read if you want to know what it's like to have a crush who's actually nice to you and LIKES YOU BACK!

Nikki, YOU RULE!!!!

I have 3 daughters and each one has begged for their very own copy of How to Dork Your Diary. We have all read the series (Yes, WE - - I've read them, too!!) and couldn't wait to get our hands on this installment. We loved the artwork, humor and Nikki's help in creating our very own personalized diary. In fact, we loved it so much that we purchased a few more along with the box set for Christmas gifts :-]. It's not every day that you can buy a gift for under $35 that's a sure winner with young girls. DD 3 1/2 is the perfect addition to our collection and anyone purchasing the box set! Can't wait to see what's next from Rachel R. Russell.

My girls loved this book instantly and spent a great deal of time filling out all the fun pages! It is not just another book in the series, but it is more of an activity book or workbook. It has various kinds of questions and writing prompts that are really fun for young girls to fill out, answer, or even draw their response. Yes, you are supposed to write IN the book! Any girl who loved reading books 1, 2, and 3 will enjoy this book. I think it was a neat idea to add a unique book like this to the Dork Diaries series. Since it is intended for kids to write in the book I do not recommend it for Kindle.

I really enjoyed "Dork Diaries: How to Dork Your Diaries"! There was drama and interaction, just like a great teen book should be. It really inspired me, and I have a urge to write a teen book of my own. I have every other book in the series, and I think Rachel Renee Russell is an amazing author. She has a great sense of humor, and devotes it into her book. I am very priveliged to read such an amazing book. I can't wait until she writes another. I haven't reviewed her other books, but I give 2 thumbs up on them too! I rate it 5 stars for a reason!
Ciao!

Shipping was fast!! My daughter has been wanting this book but I couldn't find it in the stores. She was excited when she opened it on Christmas. She has been reading and writing in it so much that she is almost done. Great purchase.

My daughter loves the series and the book came promptly and at a lower cost than we could find in traditional book stores; many of which were sold out. So this was a lifesaver for under the tree!

I bought this as a gift for my daughter. It is the fourth of the Dork Diaries set. It was not what she expected it to be but she was still very pleased. The book is more of an activity book in which you log various journals and it includes some games. She expected it to be a story just like the first three books. I think that it is still worth the money and it completes the set.
