    Piglettes was one of the worst books I have read this year and a huge disappointment I can t even This is correct I didn t even wanted to give it 2 stars this was so generous of me I have never had so many issues with a book before and I wanted to like this book it had soo much potential and the premise was so intriguing and good and also the cover looks pretty cute boy have I been so wrong I hated it sorry guys I just did Do not get me wrong the fact that I hated this book does Piglettes was one of the worst books I have read this year and a huge disappointment I can t even This is correct I didn t even wanted to give it 2 stars this was so generous of me I have never had so many issues with a book before and I wanted to like this book it had soo much potential and the premise was so intriguing and good and also the cover looks pretty cute boy have I been so wrong I hated it sorry guys I just did Do not get me wrong the fact that I hated this book does not mean you would not like it too We live in a 21st century and I live in a republic and democratic country, which means that I am allowed to express my own opinion even if it is different than yours or yours or his or hers ect Yes you get what I mean In fact I do encourage you to read it so you could make your own opinion and share it us.SYNOPSIS SPOILER FREE We have 3 girls that go to the same school and all 3 are the finalists of the Pig Pageant contests that take place in Facebook and it is run by all students that go that school If you have no idea that Pig Pageant is in short it is a cyber bullying kind of game that students do the pick up the 3 most ugly and fat girls in the school Awesome right This premise got me intrigued and I thought oh wow this would be a very deep and heartfelt read and there is diversity and stuff I will get to that point now these 3 girls eventually become friends we have Mireille which is basically the team leader of the 3 Astrid the winner of the contest that has recently moved to the city and Hakima that is Arabic I guess so yeah there is a lot of diversity and this is one of the main reasons why I was expecting so much from this book And they decide to go on the adventure of their life from their town sorry I forgot it too complicated to remember to Paris by bike That would be 7 days of cycling Each one of them has her reasons to go to Paris and these reasons happen to intersect at the same time at the same place in Paris.This is it, now I am going to talk about thePOSITIVE THINGS This book is written by the French author Cl mentine Beauvais This book is about France There is diversity Friendship NEGATIVE SECTION BE AWARE OF SPOILERS SO DO NOT READ IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED Now I don t even know where to begin with At the beginning it was OK there were some funny parts but then it stroke me why the hell is Mireille being such a b tch with her mother Like hellooo you are just 15 could you just shut the f up and stop barking back at your mother and asking her why did she sleep with an ugly man like your father Like girl you got some issues and you need a psychologist I get that you are upset and you do not feel alright with your self, but what the hell and her mother is just taking it as if it something normal. No I AM NOT OK WITH THIS ATTITUDE SORRY FOLKS Another thing I cannot get they literally met on the same goddamn day and have already planned to go to Paris cycling for 7 days Rewinding two of them are nearly 16 and one of them is 14 Are we for real Is this a joke Where are the hidden cams Ohh it gets better I promise Hakima s brother who is an ex solder on a wheelchair missing both his legs total respect for those people this is by no means meant to be offensive nor anything in those lines decided to accompany them for the trip and their parents be like oh sure Kader is going with them why not let them go here take these sausages made by Mireille grandparents in one day, take this trailer to carry the sausages and the other stuff you might need for the travel, oh here is a solar battery to charge the little fridge here is the license to sell food.helloooo PARENTING LEVEL BELLOW ZERO Guysss I cannot comprehend thiss I just found it to be ridiculous at last and sending wrong messages to younger audience that might read this book It promotes that It is OK to talk back to your parents and treat them like they are your age It is OK to want something and get it your way no matter what It is OK to think of doing something hugee like cycling for 7 days at 15 and you would get attention for it and get some kind of revenge to those that have bullied you This are the messages I get from this book I just want to quote a couple of dialogues that got me like WTF You can t go You are not even allowed to sell food You will poison everyoneUhmmm what You daughter might get in some muchserious trouble by cycling 7 days alone with 1 girl younger than her and another her age and all you worry is that she will poison someone because she does not have food selling license I jut wanted to throw the books at that moment if had I have the hard copyI am going to wrap it up because I could keep going on all night. Over all I gave it 1.5 stars rounded to 2 only because there was diversity in this book and I appreciated it It was the worst book I have read this year, which was really disappointing I hated it, but you should read so you could experience it It might not deliver the same emotions it did to me so you might end up liking it which I hope so

    This book Piglettes in English is what I call a good surprise A really good one I hadn t expected to like this book as much as I did.Three girls Mireille, Astrid, and Hakima find themselves being awarded the Gold, Silver and Bronze trotters by their classmates after a vote took place on this Facebook For Mireille, it s her third time, and the fact that the guy who created this award was once her childhood best friend is something she cannot let go of These three girls decide to go to This book Piglettes in English is what I call a good surprise A really good one I hadn t expected to like this book as much as I did.Three girls Mireille, Astrid, and Hakima find themselves being awarded the Gold, Silver and Bronze trotters by their classmates after a vote took place on this Facebook For Mireille, it s her third time, and the fact that the guy who created this award was once her childhood best friend is something she cannot let go of These three girls decide to go to Paris with their bikes and Hakima s brother, Kader, who is going with his wheelchair to attend a garden party at the lys e How are they going to fund this trip By selling black, white, and vegetarian pudding How ironic.This book was extremely funny, it made me laugh a lot, that was unexpected but nice I enjoyed the girls, and I liked Kader as well, I liked their relationships It wasn t a groundbreaking story, it had some ableist language and I didn t always agree with what it said about feminism, but it set an interesting discussion on how fat people are being perceived and discriminated against in our society.It honestly was a sweet story, I had such a good reading time I m not sure I d reread it, but it s definitely a book I see myself recommending in the future 3.75

    This was a rather random pick for me I was thinking I needed to readbooks that take place outside the US, and what better than a book set in France written by a French author I must say, I am very pleased I chose this book I don t understand why you insist on calling yourselves the Three Little Piglettes, Mum groans It s a horrible name We ll make it beautiful, you ll see Or better, we ll make it powerful I have heard people talk about this reclaiming Taking back something that This was a rather random pick for me I was thinking I needed to readbooks that take place outside the US, and what better than a book set in France written by a French author I must say, I am very pleased I chose this book I don t understand why you insist on calling yourselves the Three Little Piglettes, Mum groans It s a horrible name We ll make it beautiful, you ll see Or better, we ll make it powerful I have heard people talk about this reclaiming Taking back something that was meant to hurt you, and turning it into something empowering That is what Mireille did When she medaled in the Pig Pageant for the third year in a row, she banded together with the gold and silver medalists to take back the term piglet and make it into something powerful I was all onboard this girl power trip, and loved the message I also really loved Mireille She was witty, amusing, and a little snarky She loved poking the bear when it came to her mom, but when it came down to it, she had nothing but love for her In fact, she just wantedfor her Mireille had a lot of growth during this story, and I always expect that in a good YA book Both Astrid and Hikima added to the fun The three could not have beendifferent from each other, but I love that this wonderful friendship came from something so awful I also thought it was so sweet the way Astrid and Mireille took on the roles of big sister to Hikima Mireille was not quite as warm and fuzzy as Astrid, but she had a heart of gold underneath it all, and there were many decisions she made which support this I kind of loved the way Beauvais tied things up at the end She gave a little something to all the main players Mireille, Astrid, Hikima, Kader, Mireille s mother and step father I am a sucker for a happy ending and I got that plus a great deal of closure Overall A delightful coming of age road trip, which made me laugh and warmed my heart I would like to thank the publisher for the review copy BLOG INSTAGRAM BLOGLOVIN FRIEND ME ON GOODREADS

    Piglettes is an adorable and inspiring novel I would love to share this one with my younger self.Mireille is angry that she got bronze on the schools yearly Ugly list For the past two years she s won gold, and this year someone took away her 1 spot and now she s in third Marielle knows how to deal with being called names, and she doesn t let that affect her But when she confronts the first and second place winners, she realizes that they are not as easy going as her The three girls band to Piglettes is an adorable and inspiring novel I would love to share this one with my younger self.Mireille is angry that she got bronze on the schools yearly Ugly list For the past two years she s won gold, and this year someone took away her 1 spot and now she s in third Marielle knows how to deal with being called names, and she doesn t let that affect her But when she confronts the first and second place winners, she realizes that they are not as easy going as her The three girls band together, and against all odds they plan a bike trip to Paris, proving everyone who said they couldn t do it wrong, the three girls embark on their trip, each for a different reason.I am a huge supporter of books written in other languages being translated to English We definitely needof that, and I was stoked to be able to review this book I instantly fell in love with the characters, the story and the message this book was sending It has such beautiful writing, but its done in a way where the reader can laugh along with the main characters.I love that this book had diversity in it, and dealt with some really important issues, such as bullying, family problems, and wounded soldiers This book was meant for early highschoolers and the 15 years of age group, but some of the things the author talked about were very mature and I am so glad she did it in a gentle way where its easy for people to understand While I really did love the message of the story and the characters There were parts of the story that seemed to drag on quite a bit, and there wasn t a lot of action or excitement, the book is mainly focused on character development of all three girls and their chaperone.I definitely recommend giving this book a read, it will make you laugh and your heart swell with joy Best of luck to the author, I hope to seebooks like this in the future.Happy Reading,Aneta

    I came across Piglettes when I was in the library one day and after a quick read of the synopsis and discovering that it featured a group of girls going on a bike roadtrip to Paris, I knew I had to read it I visited Paris a few years ago myself and absolutely loved it So, I was looking forward to being reminded of the city PlotDuring the beginning of the book we find out that three young girls, Mireille, Astrid and Hakima have just been voted the three ugliest girls in school by their classmat I came across Piglettes when I was in the library one day and after a quick read of the synopsis and discovering that it featured a group of girls going on a bike roadtrip to Paris, I knew I had to read it I visited Paris a few years ago myself and absolutely loved it So, I was looking forward to being reminded of the city PlotDuring the beginning of the book we find out that three young girls, Mireille, Astrid and Hakima have just been voted the three ugliest girls in school by their classmates on social media After this the girls come together and decide they want to make a stand and the best way to do this is to attend a national event in Paris and make their voices heard PositivesThe plot is essentially quite simple which made the book easy to follow and understand The author isn t afraid to discuss bring up controversial topics, such as online bullying, weight, periods, disability and I really appreciated this I loved the bike roadtrip aspect of the book, it was so interesting learningabout France and its culture The book focuses on giving a positive message to readers which is that what s inside isimportant than what you look like on the outside NegativesAlthough, the ending was good, it did confuse me a little I m still not entirely sure if the President s partner knew exactly who Mireille was ConclusionOverall, this was a really fun read that delivered an incredibly important message I feel Piglettes is maybe aimed at slightly younger readers because of the simpler language used but it can still be enjoyed by older readers too
