It’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid for girls in this hilarious novel!

Of course, the stories don’t go quite as expected—because they each have a very special Dork Diaries spin!
Tales from a Not-So-Happily Ever After! (Dork Diaries, #8) Reviews
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!!!!!!!
This is definitely the best book I've read in this series. I can't stop laughing on how Brianna a.k.a. the Fairy Godmother keeps on committing mistakes in fulfilling Nikki's requests. I will definitely read this again in the future.
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 [spoilers removed]. 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.
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.
