Hi and thanks for reading my blog! Recently I went on a trip with my family and brought the book I was reading, The Hobbit, along with me. The Hobbit, as my mom tells me, is basically world-famous. It’s the prelude to the trilogy The Lord of the Rings, which my parents love. Since this blog is all about book reviews, I better get started with the review for this one!
On a scale from one to ten, ten being the best book ever and one being the worst book ever, I’d say The Hobbit is a five. It’s about a hobbit named Bilbo, a wizard named Gandalf, and a bunch of dwarves going on a quest to defeat the evil dragon, Smaug. I would tell you more, but I’m afraid I’d spoil it!
I’d say The Hobbit is good for teenagers and older (I’m the exception). I gave it a five because I like books with a lot of action, and though the book was pretty lively, there some parts that were a little boring. But it’s still a great book! I’m a tough judge, as my family tells me, and any 5 on my standards is pretty darn good!
I’d recommend The Hobbit, but one of the reasons I gave it a five is because it’s old-timey and I feel like there are a lot of extra words that make it a bit confusing. But I still recommend it, and I know some people that’d like it a lot!
Other recommendations are Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series, J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, Lisa McMann’s Unwanteds series, Brandon Mull’s Fablehaven series, Jeanne Birdsall’s The Penderwicks series, and Devlin Richards’ Aubrey Rising series. I’m likely to blog about all of these in the future, because I think they’re great books and everyone should read them!
A few last words about The Hobbit and this blog: The Hobbit is a must-read! J.R.R Tolkien, the author, is really good at writing. Also, feel free to comment. You can compliment or critique! As a young author and avid reader myself, I’m always looking for ways to make my work better! Also, you can follow or like my blog. I’ll post on another great book soon! Thanks for reading!
P.S. I only post about great books. Nothing that I dislike will make its way onto Ali’s Book Nook!
P.P.S. Also, feel free to suggest books for me to read and blog about! Now, the end (of this post) for real.
