A Midsummer Tight’s Dream, Rennison, Louise

5/10

A Midsummer Tights Dream

 

Synopsis

So far I’ve had a bat kiss, a boy who just wants to be my mate and a nose-licking incident. How can you get good at snogging if no one will give you a chance? Tallulah Casey wants a dream snog and the golden slippers of applause. But will her tights lead her astray?

Overview *Contains Spoilers*

Tallulah Casey returns to Dother Hall in this book despite her apparent performing abilities, however when the future of Dother Hall is threatened, Tallulah finds something she is good at. Making a fool of herself.

This book wasn’t as good as the first book in the series as I felt it was more centred around Tallulah’s and the gang’s boy troubles rather than on the performing endeavours they embark on. This was disappointing for me as I felt that the performing element should have been the main story line with the boy drama used as a side plot line to keep the reader interested, not the other way round.

Although this book was still funny and light hearted, it didn’t have as much of an impact on me as the first book did which was surprising. However, I would still recommend this book to someone who was in their young teens. I would certainly not choose to read it, but I am not in the age group that it is aimed at.

The first book in the series can be found here.

Withering Tights – Louise, Rennison

7/10

Withering Tights

 

Synopsis

You know what it’s like when you have your first snog, and it feels like a tiny bat is barging around in your mouth? Of course you do. So you will love Tallulah Casey as she careers about in her tights. She’s your kind of mate.

Overview *Contains Spoilers*

Tallulah Casey is 14 and she is about to attend Dother Hall of Performing Arts for the Summer. There’s just one problem, though. She can’t sing or dance. Throughout this book, the reader follows the adventures or ‘misadventures’ of Tallulah as she shows off her Irish Dancing skills and gets her first kisses from boys.

This is a hilarious book, normally not my type of reading as it is quite simple language, however, I absolutely loved it! In some places, it had me laughing, whilst in others, I felt sympathetic for Tallulah’s predicaments.

I would highly recommend this book to young teens or pre-teens because you are guaranteed to enjoy it in some way, even if this is not your style of reading.

The second book in the series can be found here.
