This book was wonderful! I recommend all of the Dork Diaries books. They are all creatively and thoughtfully made. These books are always fantastic!

Okay book. It was funny, and creative. But a tad unoriginal.

Tales from a not-so-happily ever after is one of my favourite Dork Diaries books. Rachel Renee Russell does a great job with the story line and especialy the drawings. So much excitement that it is hard to put the book down! I think that you should really try this book out if you are a bookworm like me.😉

Tales from a not-so-happily ever after:
I love the Dork Diary series, but I'll be honest, this story was a complete waste of time in my opinion. In this book, Nikki was learning about old fairytales in class. When in gym class, Mackenzie hits her with a dodgeball and she faints. She ends up hallucinating and believes that she is in a fairytale world. But her fairytale dream had nothing to do with her real life, and was totally irrelevant to the series. Personally, I like the Dork Diary series because of the storyline between Nikki and Mackenzie, and Nikki and Brandon. But the story didn't really continue that storyline like all the other stories do; didn't include the rest of the characters a lot. I was really excited to read the book because it was the newest, but as soon as the fairytale hallucination started and I realized it wasn't going anywhere, I just skimmed until the end. Then at the end, when I was expecting something to happen once she wakes up, nothing really did happen. I didn't really like it as you can tell, and I suggest if you are an active Dork Diary reader, just skip this book. If you would like to start reading Dork Diary books, don't start with this one. Maybe if you are around 8 or 9, you might like this particular story, but anyone over that age probably wouldn't. To me, it was such a disappointment, and I really love the series and wanted to like it... I wouldn't recommend this book.

By far the WORST Dork Diaries books. I am a huge fan of the series and have loved every book except for this one. What a disappointment. This is coming from someone who loves reading about fairy tales (I love the "Whatever After" series), too.
