StacksBookClubSTACKS Book Club: Dork Diaries

What a fantastic start to the STACKS Book Club. I’m absolutely in love with Dork Diaries and I’m having trouble putting down the book to even write this meeting post. I completely feel like I’m in school with Nikki and I think the drawings perfectly complement the story.

So now, without further ado, I give you the official discussion questions for our first meeting!Dork Diaries Tales from a Not So Fabulous Life

  • What do you think of Nikki?
  • Do you like the style of the book, with lots of pictures to go with the stories?
  • How does MacKenzie stack up against other famous literary villains?
  • It looks like Nikki has a big crush on Brandon. Where do you see their relationship going?
  • What do you predict will happen with Nikki in the annual art show?
  • Nikki must have been so embarrassed after the incident in the lunch room. Have you ever had an embarrassing moment like that?

Feel free to answer any or all of these questions or post your own questions in the Comments below! Also be sure to read up to the September 29th entry and check back for next week’s Book Club meeting!

    1. Nikki is really cute and pretty but, people don’t really like her and she is unpopular.
    2. I love the style of the books. The writing and drawing are amazing and the story makes me want to read more.
    3. I don’t get what you mean, by that sentence.
    4. She loves Brandom and her relationship is going well with him. In the other books they all like each other and eventually they are together in the last book number 6.
    5. I thought MacKenzie would win but apparently Nikki won with the help of her friends, true friends.
    6. I have had a few when people told secrets that I didn’t like to share and sometimes when I do different kinds of things.

    Hi!! Well, I think Dork Diaries is amazing! I have all the books including 3 1/2 and the new 1. Anyway, I think Nikki as a dork (duh), but a totally nice 1. She is kind, funny, & a bit of a scardey cat. But she is also brave in other situations. I do like the style of the book. The pictures r silly & cute. MacKenzie Hollister is pretty mean, but just like any average popular girl— perfect clothes, hair, posture, no saying dumb things @ dumb times, and totally mean. And Nikki’s relationship with Brandon is going very well, considering he is popular, and she isn’t, plus the fact that he chooses her over MacKenzie. I can’t predict what happens bcuz I’ve read it b4. And no, I haven’t. I mean, sure I’ve had embarrassing moments, but nothing where every single person is laughing AT me, rather than WITH me.

    I see them becoming a cute couple! In the later books they are still friends, but brandon definatly has feelings for her, or he’s sending mixed emotions. MacKenzie is such a JERK! :)

    1.Nikki is a shy, artistic girl who is afraid to stand up and say what she wants to say to MaKenzie. 5. I predict Nikki’s portrait will get ruined but her friends will have a surprise for her and she wins.

    I like dork diaries, I just wish their were more of them! I read them all in about a month, I eventually got tired of waiting for a new book, so……………. I moved on to the Warriors cats. Best books ever are the warriors! I am glad they ran out of dork diaries so that I can move on to a better book. Warrior cats rule!!!! If you have never read the warriors you need to start! They are awesome…..no, they are supercalafragalisticexpialladocias and more!!!!

    1. Nikki is a kind and artistic teenager.
    2. I like the pictures because they really make me laugh, and they describe exactly how Nikki is thinking, so yes.
    3. She’s pretty mean.
    4. They like each other. Their relationship will go well.
    5. She is gonna win.
    6. No, I’m glad I never have had hot lunch before.

    Nikki is, well Nikki! She is so insecure, and has such low self-esteem. But she does come up with great comebacks! In her head, of course! I wonder why Nikki is so unsure if Brandon really likes her or not., even after it’s so obvious that Brandon like-likes her back.

      I think nikki is cool, but not a dork! I think she should be proud of who she is!!!!!!!!!! Because if she was real, God made her perfect!!!!!!!!!!! : ]

    2. journeyclever10{jc10}

      I guess she calls hersefl a dork because that is her personality;] Everyone has an inner dork!

      I really like Nikki and i think she calls herself a dork because she believes that she is a dork even though she isin’t. Do you like Mac Kensie? I do!!!
