  • mewborn ~my past does not define me. my strength is an illusion. my calm hides a storm. my innocence is not ignorance~
    So Diary of a Wimpy Kid is just that one series that I can't stop checking if they have new books, and reading them over and over again. It isn't one of those Harry Potter books, but it's one that I can't seem to let go! I am so excited for this new book, you have no idea! #teenagerstillinlovewithkidbooksisperfectlynormal

    Greg suffers through a winter that starts out unseasonably warm and then takes a cold, dark turn. As per the usual, Kinney nails life in middle school, the smells, the general weirdness of your fellow students, unreasonable parents and teachers. And then, of course, it all ramps up into something cuckoo-banana-pants!

    BEST BOOKThis book was really awesome. I never want these books to finish. This book is great too pass the time if you are bored.

    Jeff Kinney does it again!Greg never ceases to amuse me. I loved the Meltdown and can't wait for the next book!I always thought that Greg was in highschool because of all he books in the series but he's in middle school. That's like 4 books per school year. I can't wait till we get a book where Greg goes to high school. I think that would be hilarious! Overall 4 stars!

    I’m not usually one to get myself a copy of a new release and I haven’t done so since the Harry Potter series concluded, but I’ve been enjoying this series so much that I had to get a copy of this latest release ASAP!I would say 2/3 of the book is very funny. The final third consists of extreme snowball warfare (more intense than paint balling) between Lower Street and Upper Street kids which eventually becomes one where other kids in the a...

    Loved the epic snowball war! These books are hilarious and great for kids.
  • Ryk Stanton
    Some of these books are good, others not so much. This one had a few laughs but it was not as good as others I have read in the series.

    Let me get this straight, wimpy kid is a kinda book that u simply can't stop reading. Jeff Kinney writes it in such a way that even 80 year old people are amused while reading it. It is much better than Harry Potter... Wimpy kid books are not that serious and they have more amusing situations that H.P books. The Wimpy Kid books are GOAT ( greatest of all time)

    Ive always liked this series so I did like this book. If you are a fan of the series I suggest you read this book. Also I would suggest . if you like graphic novels and comedy you should read this to.

    I really like this book!

    Always an amusing read and the kids think I'm the coolest librarian because I've read the new book so everyone wins.
  • Fred Forbes
    Yes, I know its a kid's book but having read the previous 12, I guess I am "in for a penny, in for a pound"! Fun break from my more serious reading I found this one, devoted to "more snow than normal" and the "tyranny" of the all girl safety patrol and life in general from the perspective of a middle school lad. Appeals to my sophomoric sense of humor and memories of those years and the characters I grew up with. Have a good time - great mental p...

    Bought 4 copies of this-1 for each of my kids and 2 for my classroom library. Wasn’t planning on reading it until I was sitting around and it was the only book near me to kill some time with. There are definitely some laugh out loud scenarios that I shared with my kids and students (without spoiling it). Being a mom-I definitely saw myself in Greg Heffley’s mom a few times (cracked me up). Also-there’s a character with the last name of Gent...

    Started good, then became a confused mess toward the end.

    When Greg Heffley's neighborhood starts snowing-a lot-he wonders what he could possibly do in the winter. He can't stay inside because of his mother, and he isn't going to school either. Suddenly, a war starts to erupt in his street. Will he make it out the same? I really like Jeff Kinney's books because they're always funny, pretty short, and they portray middle school very interestingly. I couldn't put the book down, and I was chuckling through...
  • Jackie
    Wacky weather is highlighted (and a subtle political statement on climate change is thrown in) as Greg and his best friend experience winter as temperatures go down and snow piles up. Snow days are the be-all-and -end-all for school kids, but when too much time is on their hands, things get ugly. Greg’s mother locks the kids out of the house telling them to have fun in the snow and Greg’s father teaches them battle strategy for snowball fight...

    Greg Heffley is experiencing something he never had before; a ton of snow coming down all at once. With school closed for quite a while due to the snow, he and his friend Rowley are walking one day when they are attacked by some of the other neighborhood kids. After building a fort against all the other kids, they get attacked once again, but this time its their whole neighborhood being attacked. Will he make it out alive?
  • Ash
    Hilarious as always. This volume focused more on Greg’s classmates and neighborhood kids mostly and focused on winter and snow as the title suggests. Rowley was there for most part of the book which made it better than some other volumes. But I missed Greg’s brother Rodrick and family as they were there for very few panels. Still my favorite.

    I enjoy reading children's books, end of story, and the Diary Of A Wimpy Kid series is no exception. The series is largely favourable with children and is a big hitter with sales, but never as it ever hit a home-run like the original.I consider the original "Diary Of A Wimpy Kid" a modern-age children's classic, these sequels never valued or met what was so good about the first few titles in the series.The artwork and illustrations remain victori...
  • Ryan Sood
    This book was very similar to the other books in the Diary of a Wimpy kid series. This book was very funny and quick to read. It n the book there is a lot of snow and the kids in the neighborhood have a snowball fight. I would recommend this book to anyone who like the other books in this series.
  • Aleta
    Oh my word!!!!! :) One of my favorites.
  • Emily
    I don’t know how Jeff Kinney does it, but every single one of his books about Greg Heffley makes me laugh. Even though this is book 13, Greg’s middle school adventures are still funny and relatable!!
  • Julie Suzanne
    I definitely laughed several times while reading the first half of the book… Heffley is still such a typical middle school boy!
  • Melissa
    5 out of 5 starsNo matter how old I get, I will never stop reading the new books that are added to this series.
