    This is the second installment of the DORK DIARIES, the girls version of the DIARY OF A WIMPY KID books for boys.

    It is written in a diary form with drawings. When I told my fifth grade girls that I had the second book in the series, they got very excited, since most of them had already read the first installment.

    Nikki is the heroine of this series. She is in middle school and is a great artist. She has two BFFs, Chloe and Zoey, and a crush on a popular boy named Brandon. There is also a queen bee named MacKenzie. Nikki gets involved with the Halloween dance. She has to plan and organize it – and MacKenzie wants her to fail.

    The story is told in a very charming way and has a lot of good cultural references. You want to root for Nikki and boo MacKenzie. The story is a little unrealistic, but I still accepted it hook, line, and sinker.

    I enjoy this series and so do all the girls I have given it to. So curl up and enjoy this very funny story!

    I thought this book was very good but i think it should be a little longer. it was also very predictable.

    I struggle to find things my daughter likes to read. When she suggested this book, I said, “why not?” While it is not quite the reading I’d like her to like, it got her going. She loved the book.

    I was SO excited to hear that the Dork Diaries series would be continuing with this second book, Dork Diaries: Tales From A Not-So-Popular Party Girl. I adored the the first book, the author has such a way with humor that I think all her jokes are funny and I just adore Nikki! And the situations Nikki finds herself in, oh man, I’m not the target audience but they were hilarious! There is something about the way that Nikki writes her journal that is so innocent and genuine that she’s instantly lovable.

    In this book nemesis MacKenzie really starts to show her claws so it’s really interesting to see how Nikki will handle these situations in her polite and innocence manner. Nikki’s friends Chloe and Zoey are also a great backup duo to Nikki and her crazy ideas! While I would have loved to have seen Nikki’s little sister Brianna a bit more in this book, she was still as funny as I remember her from the first book.

    I can see the Dork Diaries series going on for a long time and with each book Nikki is maturing a bit more and learning new things about herself. I love how this book ended and it’s set up for what I’m sure will be a great third book to the series! Can’t wait to read it!

    After reading the first Dork Diaries book I couldn’t wait to read the second addition, and luckily enough, Tales from a Not-So-Popular Party Girl was even better than the original book!

    From the first page of Tales from a Not-So-Popular Party Girl the reader is thrown back into the hectic life of seventh grader Nikki Maxwell, dork extraordinaire. Much to Nikki’s surprise she’s quickly adjusting to middle school life and is actually enjoying it. You see, she has her two equally dorky side-kicks Chloe and Zoey on her side and her crush Brandon is starting to notice her. Plus, she’s been invited to popular/ mean girl Mackenzie’s latest party. Though soon enough all the good things in Nikki’s life come to an end when Nikki finds out Mackenzie is set to not only sabotage Nikki’s chances with Brandon but the Halloween party Nikki is now in charge of as well. What will one No-So-Popular Dorky Party Girl do? Well, only time and more pages can tell!

    Nikki is such a fabulous main character! Sure, she’s awkward and dorky, but she’s hilarious, a great friend, and full of snark in all the best kind of ways as well. While Nikki is a lot younger than me, I can still find myself relating to her, especially when I think back to my own middle-school days, and I feel most people will feel the same kind of way if they give this series a chance. I also loved the additions of Nikki’s best friends, Chloe and Zoey, two girls anyone would be lucky to have on their side, and Brandon, the seventh grade’s token cutie.

    Another aspect I love about this series is how it’s told through Nikki’s own personal diary entries. I feel that they give the reader a great and a more personal look into Nikki’s life than what a regular narration would provide. Plus, I have to admit the pictures and comic strips included are simply hilarious!

    While the story is a bit predictable, it never stopped it from being cute and laugh-out-loud funny. I loved being there right along with Nikki as she went through planning the Halloween party to attending two parties at once.

    In all, the Dork Diaries is well-worth the read no matter how old you are, and I’m sure I’m not the only one out there who can’t wait to read more about Nikki’s adventures!

    Grade: B+

    The second book in the series is even better than the first and that’s hard to accomplish! Nikki is no less funny, adorable or dork-like than ever. I heart this series!! <3

    My daughter, 9, was super excited about the Dork Diaries books She looked forward to the release of the new one & and read the whole thing in the first 24 hours. The fun drawings and not too many words per page make it a pretty easy read for a chapter book. She loved it and will read it again and again….

    TALES FROM A NOT-SO-POPULAR PARTY GIRL is book two of the Dork Diaries series. If you haven’t read book one, TALES FROM A NOT-SO-FABULOUS LIFE, read that one first. That’s where I started and the series just keeps getting better.

    In book two, Nikki had hoped to be asked to the Halloween dance by her secret crush, Brandon. When she overhears MacKenzie telling her friends Brandon had asked her, she decided to spend Halloween at her little sister’s party. Nikki discovered this was a lie when Brandon asks her to the dance. She accepted, but kept it a secret from her friends, Chloe and Zoe. (They didn’t have dates and she didn’t want to make them feel bad.)

    Later, Chloe and Zoe want to go as a group, still feeling guilty about being the only one having a date she plays along. Now Nikki has two parties, plus a secret date. Not only will have to find a way to balance her problems, MacKenzie is a constant problem.

    Like the first book, this one is written in a diary-style format with neat artwork. It reminds me of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, but for girls. My daughter did enjoy that series too, but loves the Dork Diaries better. She says it’s cuter and more emotional. She has grown really attached to Nikki. We both give it a five star rating and look forward to book three!
