Dear Dumb Diary Review

The Dear Dumb Diary: Utterly Magnificent Boxed Set comes with more than just two great books from the Dear Dumb Diary series by author Jim Benton for you to read. It also includes a journal that’s packed with fun fill-ins and quizzes for you and your friends!


The Books

All Jamie Kelly wants for Christmas is for people to STOP READING HER DIARIES! But where’s the fun in that? Instead, see where the bestselling Dear Dumb Diary series all began with this brand-new boxed set, just in time for the holidays! Inside the special fold-out box, you’ll find Jamie’s first two diaries … here’s a sneak peek at one of her entries …


Dear Dumb Diary,

Tonight at dinner, Mom announced that we're going to be taking care of my little cousin in a few weeks. He's like, my aunt's daughter's brother's nephew or something.
I know that your uncle's kids are your cousins, but then there are things like first cousins and second cousins and cousins once-removed. What does that mean? "Cousins once-removed."
I had a wart once removed.
And, Dumb Diary, just to update you on Mom's Latest Food Crime, last night she made a casserole with 147 ingredients, and it still tasted bad. It's hard to believe that out of 147 ingredients, not one of them tasted good.


Our Dumb Diary: A Journal To Share

Now you and your friends can write about the whole dumb world in your very own Our Dumb Diary: A Journal To Share! You can use this journal to compare how you think to how your friends think. For example, what are some of the ways you’ve grossed yourself out? If your crush sent you a love note what would it say? Would you rather get a makeover from the prettiest girl in school or give the prettiest girl in school a makeover?


Just fill in your answers to these deep, important questions (plus many more). Then pass the journal along to your friends so they can do the same – just make sure they are your BFFs! You wouldn’t want THIS diary getting into the wrong hands!


Journaling Tips

When writing in your diary, the most important thing is to share your real feelings. After all, if someone happens to read it, you would want them to be entertained, right?

` ` Throw our fists to the air ` ` ` ` Kicking and fighting ` ` Name: Eruna Ichinomiya Nickname?: Just Eruna! Magical Girl Name: Nemurin Age: Fourteen, going on fifteen Gender: Female Sexuality: Lesbian Nationality: Full-Japanese Appearance: (Too lazy to upload photos for this dumb joke.) Magical Girl Appearance: (^) Voice & Accent: An energetic, fairly loud mezzo-soprano which almost never sounds unhappy. She has a Japanese accent. Clothing- Weekends: ~ Unbuttoned white blouse ~ Black long-sleeved t-shirt ~ Black & red skirt ~ White stockings ~ Light brown heeled ankle boots ~ Red hairband ~ Yellow scarf Clothing- Costume: ~ Light orange patterned nightgown ~ White loose socks Clothing- Sleep: ~ Baggy yellow shirt ~ White gym shorts Personality: It's not exactly difficult to say that Eruna is... well, energetic. She's full of optimism, and is never without a wide grin. It's really difficult to bring her out a happy mood once she's in one. She's very cheerful, and finds it pretty easy to go up to people and start talking. She likes to be praised and spoiled by other people, as it makes her feel extra-cheerful. Of course, she does boast about herself quite a bit and the things she's done, but she doesn't think of herself as arrogant, as she still acknowledges other people don't just want to hear a load of bragging.  Another noticeable trait of Eruna's is how much she loves anime and video games. This love has affected the way she talks about other people, often using archetypes to describe people. She also has a love for cute girls, and has no qualms about running up to you and giving you a hug just because she looks like a cute character. She often has fantasies and delusions concerning characters she deems "cute", and you can often hear her muttering random, out-of-place statements about strange scenarios. Eruna, despite her optimism, happens to be the least motivated person in the world, if not the universe. She prefers the company of her video games to doing homework and studying, and has what she likes to call "selective participation". Basically, if you're not a cute girl or you're not getting her any new games or DVDs, she won't do anything for you- not even get you a snack. Due to her lazy attitude, she rarely studies for tests, and her grades are absolutely atrocious. She doesn't exactly care- she's always got that girl from the dating sim she's playing to take her mind off things... Magical Girl Personality: Nemurin definitely has Eruna's more lazy and unmotivated personality. She likes to sleep, and do pretty much nothing else. She's kinda just there, and doesn't exactly seem all that willing to change that, either. When she isn't sleeping or lazing about and putting off her work, she likes to talk to the other magical girls. She doesn't exactly talk about specific subjects, she kinda just rambles. She's very whimsical and dreamy, and rarely seems to have her head out of the clouds. She is quite cheery, and has a friendly, cuddly vibe to her. She just seems like a really absent-minded, yet lazy optimist, which is essentially what she actually is. History: Eruna's life was pretty ordinary, and nothing really odd happened in it. She had parents who worked, she went to an ordinary school, she had an ordinary brother... there was nothing exactly abnormal about her. From a young age, she'd loved magical girls, and pretty much pretended to be one for her whole childhood. Of course, this caused other people to find her quite... well, strange, but it never really bothered her all that much. Of course, she did eventually grow out of acting like a magical girl, but she never really grew out of her love for magical girls in general. She started watching more anime and playing more games as she got older, and gained quite a lot of online friends because of this. She started playing MagiPro because one of her friends told her about it, and of course, she couldn't exactly say no to playing it. Power: Sleepwalker- Nemurin can control the mind of a living target for up to 5 minutes per use of her powers. Weapon: A pink pillow, which is used as a throwing weapon. It's very light to her, but it's pretty heavy to others- especially when thrown. Code: Magical Other Info?: @snoopynwoodstock123  ` ` Do you dare to dream? ` ` ` ` I believe I can ` `
