7G and 8B have been challenged to read at least one book a month between returning to school on 13 January 2014, and finishing for the year on 13 June 2013.
Mrs Holly recommends some books she has read recently. February's recommendations include the Legend Trilogy, Mockingbird, A Wrinkle in Time graphic novel, and Every You, Every Me. Learners are also encouraged to read the Red Dot Book Awards 2014 selection to be able to vote for their favourite and have the chance to take part in the Readers' Cup later in the year
Each 13th of each month, learners should have published their opinions about one of the books they have read. You can read the published reviews here or link to late reviews in individual blogs on the right.
There is a great range of books included in the reviews submitted - including a huge Harry Potter book that Ned read faithfully to finish in time. Dionne read Fangirl, a book recommended to her by Mrs Holly. Dionne's review was sent out on Twitter to the author - who read it and responded:-
Watch this space for reviews round 2 - coming on 13th March!
