The Deja Vu Review is a new Sunday feature with mini-reviews from books I’ve read before I began my blog at The Book Addict’s Guide! Since I’ve been reading my whole life and only started my blog back in April of 2012, this is my opportunity to revisit some older books and share some mini-reviews of those that didn’t quite make it into the blog spotlight after the initial read.
This Week’s Topic: A book you read in school
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Comments: Like almost all of the books I read for school, I barely remember what The Great Gatsby was about. Maybe it’s time for a reread! I DO remember that it was one of the more enjoyable ones that we did read in school and I actually read ahead instead of sticking to my assigned reading chapters.
Wayside School Is Falling Down by Louis Sachar
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Comments: Yep, I’m picking this one. We read both Sideways Stories From Wayside School and Wayside School is Falling Down for class in 4th grade. As part of English class, we had to make up our own chapter for one of the books and create our own silly story. The funny thing is, I don’t even remember what my story was. The only one I remember was my friend Stephanie’s – She was skinny so in her story, she turned into a paperclip. I have no idea what else happened since it was over 10 years ago… But I remember having a lot of fun with it!
