Welcome to our Book Club.

“It is better to read a little and ponder a lot than read a lot and ponder a little.” 

Denis Parsons Burkitt

This is our space to discuss books we read in class, at home, on the bus, in the car, in fact most anywhere.

To start off with we will have a poll to decide which book to study as a class.  I will write posts and anyone will be able to comment on them.  There will be times when I ask some questions about the book we choose and you can answer in the comment box.

As we go through the year, if you want to become a contributor and write your own posts it may be possible for you to do that too.

  1. I like all books. I have read the hunger games this summer. I like reading in quiet places. And I really like reading

    1. I re-read The Hunger Games in Term 3.
      I really enjoyed reading it again my favourite character would have to be Katniss because of how brave she was.
      Even though i had already read it I literally couldn’t put it down and read it in less then 1 day :I
      Just like you I also enjoy reading in quite places but I’m probably not so keen on reading books 🙂

  2. I like all sorts of books. I probably read mystery books more than anything, but as long as the book interests me I’ll read it.
    Over the holidays I’ve read a lot of the Famous Five books which I found interesting. Also I re-read the Hunger Game series.
    I love reading and during my spear time that’s pretty much all I do.

  3. I like most sort of books. I read the Harry styles book this holidays 😉 and I like reading in quiet places and I kind of like reading C:

  4. I love to Read Books thats when I have time. Over Summer I started a really boring book and then got half way through. I am half way through a book (little wing) and am enjoying that. :p

  5. Pennies For Hitler
    This is and exciting book that is hard to out down. It is about a German boy who’s father works at a university, the students think that he is Jewish so they kill him. You go on an exciting adventure of how he gets out of the country and all the way to Australia.

  6. I am reading a series called the Academy. It is a series about sports and mostly about tennis. I think this series would be awesome for a person who likes a bit of romance and sport.

  7. I read The Great Gatsby. It is a 1925 novel written by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald that follows a cast of characters living in the fictional town of West Egg on prosperous Long Island in the summer of 1922. I liked the anticipation in the book and I disliked the ending when he got shot.

  8. I read Alligent back in Term 2.
    In my opinion Veronica just went backwards from Divergent.
    It was quite annoying because Four and Tris were in an argument with each other then out then in then out.
    It aslo felt as if Veronica Roth couldn’t think of anything to carry the story on so she just killed Tris off and Four just faced his fear of heights.
    I am really hoping that the movie will change the outcome 🙂

  9. A character I found interesting in Katy Perry: Part of me was Katy Perry!
    I found her interesting because she is so famous right now, but at first her record was rejected!
    Katy came from a big religious family and her first record was a religious one called Katy Hudson. All the record lables that she went to told her that it wasn’t something that people would want to hear. Katy then found herself stuck in a muddle because the songs that Capitol Records (her recording lable) gave to her and wanted her to sing went against her religion; talking about kissing girls… and liking it, to a boy who was gay but didn’t like boys!
    Katy kept her head up and went on with her album even without her parents approval and sold over 11 million albums of her first album worldwide!
    In a whirl wind of events Katy’s name was then changed from Katy Hudson, to her mothers last name Perry because her lable thought that public would get Katy mixed up with Kate Hudson.
