    Nicci has to write a fairy-tale retelling for her creative writing class (I love those kind of classes in high school, such a pity I didn't attend any while at school - nothing like that existed :( ). While she thinks that she can write nothing like that, a terrible mackenzie-caused accidents happens during a basketball game. Nicci had the ball landed on her head and she falls down. When she opens her eyes she is transfered to the Wonder-of-Oz Land and she is dressed in a blue dress, being either Dorothy from Oz or Alice. All her friends and classmates are transformed in characters from both fairy tales (obviously Brandon is the Prince-charming and Mackenzie the Evil Queen!!!)It was such a cute and clever story, written in the unique way Nicci is narrating her high school sufferings adventures!!!

    This would've been a great concept if it hadn't been done a thousand times before. The characters would've been interesting if they weren't so incredibly cliche. Seriously, let's talk about that. Nikki is "not stuck-up at all", an opinion I'm sure is only shared by the fictional girl herself. Her friends are just cutouts with no distinct personality, and their lives hover around Nikki. Brandon is like Prince Phillip from Disney's Sleeping Beauty. Yes, he has a name and does... stuff, but he has no personality. He's essentially a plot device. And the mean girl is just that - Regina George minus the interesting, funny, enjoyable character parts. There's also this recurring thing where everyone mistakes Nikki for Alice and Dorothy because of her clothes. Her CLOTHES. There are no distinguishable traits in Alice, Dorothy, or Nikki besides their clothes? Not like their hair, face, mannerisms, personality, etc? I don't know why I'm reading this series anymore. I tell myself it's because I need something to rant about, and I've already started the series, but really I have no reason. I probably will still read the next book - if there is one.

    I just completed the book "Dork Diaries 8: Tales from a Not-So-Happily-Ever-After" by Rachel Renée Russell. It was a very quirky and hilarious story to read. The story is taken place in a middle school and told by 8th grader Nikki Maxwell as she deals with everyday school drama. Between dealing with the popular fashion diva, Mackenzie or putting up with her annoying sister, Brianna, Nikki is always on the edge of losing it with them. Nikki enjoys talking out with her best friends Chloe and Zoey and hanging out with her crush, Brandon. But then in gym class, Mackenzie rudely hits Nikki in the head with a ball during a game of dodgeball, causing Nikki to have a wild dream about her, her friends, and classmates all playing as characters in common fairy tales. As you read the story, you experience find a laughable journey as Nikki travels through Fairy Tale Land meeting all the Regals, Renegades, and Rouges. I really liked this book and am looking forward to reading the next book of the series, if there is one hopefully.

    Dork Diaries was a very good book, and surprisingly held my attention the entire time I was reading it. Throughout the book, Nikki Maxwell is having an awful day. Her new sweater gets ruined, she wakes up late, and gets knocked into a whole other world! Her enemy, Mackenzie Hollister, slams a dodgeball in poor Nikki’s face, causing her to go unconscious and visit a whole new world called Fantasy Land. In Fantasy Land, everyone Nikki knows is made into a fairy tale creature. For instance, Nikki’s two best friends, Chloe and Zoey, are Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks. Nikki’s worst enemy, Mackenzie, is the Wicked Witch of the West. During her time in the Fantasy Land, Nikki tells many of the fairy tale creatures to go against the rules of the people and follow their dreams of becoming adventurers, princesses, and much more. She goes through much trouble to find the Wizard of Odd so that he can help send her home. Alas, Nikki is framed for being a bad person, so the Queen of Hearts was going to execute her. Finally, Prince Brandon swoops in and saves the day along with many of Nikki’s other friends she met along the way. I personally really enjoyed this book. It was fun and relatable, but it was also very interesting at the same time to see the modern-day twist the author put on the people in the story. I didn’t like how the author used acronyms a lot! She incessantly used “OMG” and it began to get annoying to be honest. I think people who enjoy fantasy books or like the show Once Upon A Time would love this book! It’s so similar to Once Upon A Time it’s weird.

    i love the way that the author wrote it because she goes in order and makes the book , fun to read , and it makes sense!!!I liked that Nikki has alot of feelings and she can open up her mind, and shes kinda like me .THE fairy godmother AKA (her sister Brianna) is really funny and even though she's annoying, she can be really sweet and helpful!!!!!!!!My favorite part of the book is when Nikki meets alot of characters from fairy tale books. She meets GoldieLocks and Red riding hood, and prince charming!!!!!!:) WELL, I LOVED THE BOOK AND NOW IT'S MY FAVORITE, SO I DON'T NOT LIKE ANY PART OF THE BOOK!!!!!!You should know that your going to fall inlove with this book!!!!!!!

    Hooray this is my 200th book review! It is actually pretty tragic that this book, out of any book I've read, had to be my 200th review. When did I even read the previous book in this series? Like last year? What impeccable timing.This eighth book in the Dork Diaries series is different in that rather than spanning a month (or however long they usually span) this book takes place during a single day. This is because Nikki gets lambasted in the face by balls and ends up in a hallucinatory state and plays fairy tale for a while, then she wakes up and it ends. It is quite clear that either Ms. Rachel Russell (see what I did there) or her publisher was feelin’ the need to rake in some of that $ fairy $ tale $ retelling $ money $ but with as little effort as possible, and out came this book. From which of Ms. Russel’s orifices it came out of, I will let you decide for yourself. I’m purposely ragging on this book, but truth be told I think this is probably just staying true with the usual quality of these books. These are books for little kids so I suppose the lack of personality traits for any character in the series, or the completely overdone story line wouldn’t really bother the actual target audience for these books. I myself am reading these because once-upon-a-time I USED to be in the target audience, but I guess I grew up while these books didn’t. Also I read these because Nikki freaking out at her eighth grade first world problems is hilarious. All of my Dork Diaries Reviews:Book 6Book 7Book 8

    Read for Parent Daughter Book Club. I wonder what the kids love about this series. Personally, I cannot stand the overuse of OMG, SQUEEE, and EEEE, let alone the :)!!! and :(!!!!, as well capital letters that SHOUT at the readers. It might be that as I started reading on book eight, I haven't had the chance to fall in love with the characters, but I have a feeling it wouldn't have made a difference. Amusing plot idea, though I would have prefered an actual dimension hopping tale rather than a dodgeball-inflicted delusion. I did like the final end moral, at least (view spoiler)[, where she appreciates her family, home, and sister, in particular. Her relationship with Mckenzie still seemed forced, but the grudge might've built up throughout the previous books (hide spoiler)]. Think this book might have been stronger had it been written in prose rather than diary format, especially if it does discuss about the difficulty of fitting in and being called names. The drawings were quite cute, if a bit overblown for a diary.

    How far can a hit on the head take you?Nikki travels to fairy tale land after getting hit by a dodgeball. Sadly, The only way to return home is to find the Wizard of Odd, a man who looks like her principal. If only it were so simple. Perhaps if she can get through Goldilocks, Alice in Wonderland, Red Riding Hood, Cinderella and many other stories, Nikki will accomplish her goal unscathed. Although, the book had its quirky moments, most of the warmhearted feelings the series tends to evoke in the reader seemed absent. There were just too many things going on. To push the story forward, Nikki couldn't attach herself to any of the characters and so one fairy tale after another kept popping up. It soon became like a race to see how many stories the author could jam in. Not my favorite.

    I like this book because it tells a story about a girl who tries to find someone to help her get back home. Along the way she meets a few people in fairy tale land that looked familiar. The people help her and in the end she was back home, where she belong. This was a great book that I recommend this book to Ambar and Ashly because they like adventures and I think they might like it.

    I really enjoyed this book and it was a lot different than I thought it would be, but it still was a good book, and I loved how when Nikki was in Fairy Tale Land she walked in as the same character into every single story every single time, and I love the idea of the fairy tale settings all being at the same place. Overall, I enjoyed this book very much and it was different from the other books as well, so because of the difference between the other books I would probably read this book again.

    The book, Tales from a Not- So- Happily Ever After, by Rachel Renee Russel, is about a girl name Nikki Maxwell who has the craziest dream after being knocked out from getting a ball to the head from Mackenzie Hollister during dodgeball. To start off her dream, Nikki travels to a fairy-tale world where she is mistaken as Alice from Wonderland. The only way out of this fairy tale world is to find the Wizard of Odd who is being played by her school principal. Throughout Nikki's journey, she finds her 2 best friends, Chloe and Zoe, who were Goldilocks and Little Red Riding Hood. The three all set out to find the Wizard of Odd and meet many other common fairy tale characters being played as many of their classmates and Nikki's crush, Brandon. How will Nikki escape this wild dream? This story was actually really funny and quirky with all the fairy tales included. Out of all the Dork Diaries I have read, this is not exactly my favorite, but it's still a pretty good book.

    8th book of the Dork Diaries written by Rachel Renée Russell Nikki has once again started school and had just gone to a dance with her crush Brandon after a Mackenzie "incident" we're Mackenzie "accidentally" takes Brandon's phone. Anyways Nikki has just been given a story book from her teacher called A Journey Through Fairy Tales. Later that day in gym class Nikki, Chloe, and Zoe are playing the dreaded game... Dodgeball. During this time Mackenzie once again "accidentally" (what is up with her) threw a dodgeball as hard as she could at Nikki's face while screaming "HEY, MAXWELL! EAT THIS!" which does not make any sense because how could someone do something like that on accident. Anyways after the ball hit Nikki in the face she some sort of concussion and fell over. When she wakes up... well if you want to find out read the book.

    This book is about a girl that is called Nikki Maxwell and she is considered a "dork". She has a enemy that is called "Mackenzie". She is a popular student that always bully Nikki. The story starts at school but then she goes on adventure to Fairy tale land. In fairy tale land she meets all different types of fairy tales and the weirdest part is that she recognizes the characters of the fairy tales as her friends.I picked up this book because my cousin gave me the first book and I read it. I liked it so I continued to read the series. I finished this book because Nikki is stuck in Fairy tale land and I want to find out how she escapes.I would recommend this book to Bianca Tu because she just watched Cinderella and I think she would like to read about another version of fairy tales.

    Okay so Dork Diaries/Geronimo Stilton/Goosebumps were the books I've red since I was 6 til I was 13. Well technically, til now. They are my go-to light read books (except Goosebumps they aren't light haha) Whenever I don't feel that much to read, they strangle me out of my slump HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA So you may say this book si cliché and all but IDGAF. It helps me relax and unwind so yeah. Haha

    A one-of-a-kind hilarious fairy tale twist.Dork Diaries is a book series recommended for pre-teen and early-teen girls(or perhaps boys),following the story of a socially awkward and dorky girl named Nikki Maxwell and her daily school and family dramas. Nikki's day to day life is filled with obstacles posed by her antagonist and nemesis,Mackenzie Hollister who goes out of her way to cause trouble for Nikki and her friends.Dork Diaries has since publication became a worldwide bestseller and the protagonist,a symbol of the importance of letting your inner dork shine without succumbing to peer pressure.

    This is mostly Nikkie in a dream of fairy tails and other things.The reason why is because MacKenzie slamed her in the face with a volleyball.

    It was interesting, and fun to experience her dreamland or fairytale, because it was detailed and wasn't bland or plain.

    Nikki gets knocked out during dodgeball and wakes up to find herself in Fairy Tale Land, where all the characters look suspiciously like her friends from school.You'd think something just a little bit interesting could be done with that premise. Instead it's the exact same formulaic girl drama with the barest bit of fairy tale mashup.Series Review | TpT Store | Pinterest

    Awwww how cute was this book! On my mission to read what my scholars are reading I had to give in and try this Dork Diary series as it is asked for all the time and described as the female version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and, well since I read two of those I picked this one up and was thoroughly entertained for about two and a half hours—this book reads fast like extremely so for adult readers as most of the text is double spaced diary entries and is sprinkled with the cutest drawings ever that beg you to just color and enhance the innocent big eyed characters she invents and without reading the other seven books I was able to enter this story and feel like I knew this Nikki tween with her BFFS, her crush Brandon, bratty little sister Brianna and nemesis Mackenzie..yes this book follows the tried and true formula for child drama with everyday problems, school woes and parents that just don’t understand—throw in a sibling that annoys them to no end and a person at school that constantly bullies them and boom a winning formula to get kids to relate and read….Soo in this cute little tale Nikki is having a horrible day at school with her super cute sweater getting ruined by a peanut butter and jelly and pickle sandwich and then a dreaded dodge ball game in gym class when she gets blasted in the face by a ball and is knocked out…With a long off lesson on fairytales coming back to her subconscious while Nikki is out of it she daydreams she is in Fairytale Land and enters the beloved stories of the Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Cinderella and a couple of princess cameos with a fantastical story of how all the fairytale characters try to live their dreams….okay so I must say that the book got alittle silly at the end of her fairytale dream but overall it was such an adorable story (I mean she literally used the word cray-cray and glitch for a “glam witch”) and with all the up to date slang and cutesy pctures it is sure to be a favorite for middle school girls with all their perceived drama and boy craziness but its done with a message and dose of sweetness that makes the story worth the read and I will definitely get more of these in our cute!!

    I was first thinking that I was reading a diary were the real life characters created a drama and romantic gushing month for Nikki but I was totally wrong and I am so glad cause this is way better. I am good at dodge ball and I know the rules and I'm pretty sure that Mackenzie's throw or should I say kill Nikki ball was a total FOUL! When she got out I was like oh no you didn't Mackenzie and her cold voice spoke in my head, oh yes I did, meet my little minions! Ok the munchkins totally reminded me of my 5 year old sister cause she's always eating snacks and the name munchkins omg I was busting up but it was in my head so nobody heard it except me. Anyway when all the munchkins were around Nikki it totally was like the flies following a flying hot dog. Finally Brianna the fairy god mother ( that was in Cinderella except it wasn't an old lady) showed up and told her directions and Mackenzie who is the wicked witch of the Wild West which I totally get why (ps that's from the wizard of oz)shoes who could make your outfit fabulous while wearing the I gotta admit that that is cool. Also when she was in the magical world I found it amazing and prince Brandon omg that character was like perfect. Ok I gotta stop or I'll be blabbing about the book for ages the point is I LOVE THE BOOK

    Dork Diaries-Tales from a Not-So-Happily Ever After was just book 8 from the series: Dork Diaries. This time Rachel Renee Russell didn't amuse me as much, I still enjoyed the book though. As always, Nikki Maxwell is twisted up in some kind of drama wether it is with mean girls, crushes, or both. This time her drama involved the mean girl, MacKenzie Hollister. While in gym class, MacKenzie hits Nikki with a ball in the head on purpose. Causing Nikki to faint. She thinks that she some how magically fell into some fairytale universe and then wants to get back home. Her friends and enemies are either regals, renegades, or rogues. It is kind of like The Wizard of Oz but with tweets here and there. The only reason why I took off a star is because the plot concept isn'the very original. Falling into a faze because of a concussion. Then dreaming and seeing familiar faces and ending with a happy ending. I am not saying it should have but still. It still included the juicy drama and fun I always get. So this is why I still recommend you read this book and the whole series.

Nikki went threw all of these fairy tale stories hoping that she could make it back home and into her real life. Will she make it out of the Wizard of Odd? I recommend this to people that like stories that are not real. That like books that are funny.

    The dance and the Mackenzie "incident", where Mackenzie stole Brandon's phone, has just passed.When April Fool's Days arrives at school, Nikki is read a vey old book of fairy tales. Later that day during p.e., Nikki is hit with a dodge ball thrown by Mackenzie. It was so strong that When it landed on her face, she was knocked out cold.

However, it's not as simple as it sounds when a witch and other fairy tale characters are after you. With the Help of her friends, Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks(Chloe and Zoey), Prince Brandon(Brandon), Snow White, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, And her fairy godmother Brianna, Nikki travels her way home- Dork Diaries style. Truly a great twist to classic fairy tales with a hint of Dorkiness. It can't get any better!

    I think that this book is AMAZING!!! It starts off when Nikki has a bad day because Nikki's sister made a sandwich which got on Nikki's sweater and when she got to school everyone made fun of her. During PE Nikki got hit by a ball which took her to a strange world a fairy tale world. The book was kind of confusing in some parts of the which made me want to stop reading. later I got right back on track and understood the whole book. The end was getting a really heart stopping because everyone wanted to know if Nikki will make it alive or not and if she will defeat the queen. This is a exiting book that I read it AGAIN and AGAIN! I don't want to spoil the book to much because if you haven't read it you HAVE to it is funny, trilling, and unknowing.

    This Dork Diaries novel is definitely a fun book to read when you have a hour or so of spare time. It's a short yet hilarious book that really transports the reader into the world of Nikki Maxwell. The sketches and the plot line is so relatable because she is indeed a middle school student. Ever since the first book of this series was published I instantly became a fan of this series, the "girl" version of the Diaries of a Wimpy Kid. Whenever there is something that is bothering me or something that is on my nerves, reading a book like this one sends a cheerful vibe and leaves a smile plastered on my face :D
