Dork Diaries are a fun and eye-catching series for the tween in the house, and I don’t have one so I started to flick and got caught up reading the first few chapters.
Diaries are such a great storytelling tool for this age group because the pages are filled with eye-catching details and the fonts are generally a lot more fun than novels. I remember a few books written in the style from my childhood but I won’t show my age by telling you what they were.
Nikki Maxwell is back in the 13th instalment of this bestselling series with the Birthday Drama. Nikki’s BFFs are planning a mega awesome birthday party but it all comes crashing down when Mom says it’s way over budget.
Doesn’t take long for Nikki’s dream party to start looking like a dorky disaster, but can Nikki and her BFFs formulate a plan to save the day and avoid a major birthday disaster?
This is quite an easy read, sure to capture the attention of book loving tweens. I look forward to hearing what they think.
Dork Diaries Birthday Drama is published by Simon & Schuster and is available through Angus & Robertson Bookworld, Booktopia and where all good books are sold.

My blurb went missing… so now I have to bring you a new one. One that is a little broader too.
I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years I have broadened my horizons considerably.
I inhale music, hair metal that satisfies my inner bogan is where my musical passion lies, but again I’ve been exposed to lots of different music I wouldn’t normally listen to and have broadened those horizons also.
In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews.
Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS! Reading, writing, speaking, listening – if it’s got words I’m there!
