    I bought this book last year and then never had a chance to reaad it. I bought it because i am intrigued by the concept of what will happen when we as a world run out of oil.

    Reading Log term 1 2013

  • Animal Farm by George Orwell

    Animal Farm by George Orwell
    I am going to read this classic novel to my class.
  • Conspiracy 365 by Gabrielle Lord

    Conspiracy 365 by Gabrielle Lord
    I choose this book because Caelan was showing me book 7 and telling me how excited he was about reading them. So based on his recommendation I found the first book.
  • Conspiracy 365 by Gabrilelle Lord

    Conspiracy 365 by Gabrilelle Lord
    Pretty neat book.I like the way that it is based on a countdown. Had a great cliffhanger ending, which makes me want to get the next book.
  • Skeleton Key by Anthony Horowitz

    Skeleton Key by Anthony Horowitz
    Started to re-read Alex Rider books, so that I can finally finish the series (I never read the last two books)
  • Skeleton Key by Anthony Horowitz

    Skeleton Key by Anthony Horowitz
    A good rip-roaring tale. Lots of action and mostly/sort of /not really beleiveable.Didn't stop it being a good book though.
  • Ark Angel by Anthony Horowitz

    Ark Angel by Anthony Horowitz
    I couldn't find the next book (Eagle Strike), so I jumped ahead a couple of books to this one.
  • Ark Angel by Anthony Horowitz

    Ark Angel by Anthony Horowitz
    A little bit silly this one. This was the reason I stopped reading Alex Rider. Going into space was just a little over the top for me.
  • Eagle Strike by Anthony Horowitz

    Eagle Strike by Anthony Horowitz
    I chose this book as i am working through the series again, building up to the two last books that I have never read.
  • Eagle Strike by Anthony Horowitz

    Eagle Strike by Anthony Horowitz
    I really enjoyed this ALex Rider book, as I struggled to remember it from when I last read it. The villans are always so nasty and I loved the way that he killed or tried to kill off people.
  • Zlata's Diary by Zlata Filipovic

    Zlata's Diary by Zlata Filipovic
    I selected this book as I had recommended it to a student who was looking to broaden her reading horizons by reading some autobiographies.
    I am asuming it willl be like a modern Anne Frank's Diary.
  • Scorpia by Anthony Horowitz

    Scorpia by Anthony Horowitz
    Slightly out of order, but i am working my way through the Alex Rider series
  • Animal Farm by George Orwell

    Animal Farm by George Orwell
    Well i finished reading this to the class. Not too sure how much most of them enjoyed it, buthopefully if they have to read it at College, they will remember it and have a better understanding of the themes
  • Snakehead by Anthony Horowitz

    Snakehead by Anthony Horowitz
    I am quite excited about reading this one, becasue unlike the other Alex Rider books I have read recently, I haven't read this one before.
  • Empty by Suzanne Weyn

    Empty by Suzanne Weyn
    I finally finished this book (took a long time as I was only reading it during ssr in class). It was quite a good book, but not GREAT! Worth a read.
  • Snakehead by Anthony Horowitz

    Snakehead by Anthony Horowitz
    I enjoyed this one a lot more than the previous book Ark Angel. For me it was a bit more realistic and I liked the fact that it delved into Alex's father's history. Good twist at the end.
  • Crocodile Tears by Anthony Horowitz

    Crocodile Tears by Anthony Horowitz
    As I really enjoyed the last Alex Rider book, I was really keen to start this one.
  • Zlata's Diary by Zlata Filipovic

    Zlata's Diary by Zlata Filipovic
    Just finished this last night. AN interesting read, though I felt it gotkinda repetitive through the middel parts. Kept having to remind myself that it wasn't a work o fiction and these thoughts, feelings and events reallyhappened to Zlata. Quite chilling when towards the end she mentions that 15,000 died in Sarajevo (3000 of them children) and 50,00 were injured (many permanently). Definately worth reading.
  • Crocodile Tears, by Anthony Horowitz

    Crocodile Tears, by Anthony Horowitz
    A solid effort by Horowitz. So many parrallels with James Bond. I like the way that it really seems to indicate that Alex Rider has finished with the spy business at the end of this book...this makes me really excited to start the last book.
  • Scorpia Rising by Anthony Horowitz

    Scorpia Rising by Anthony Horowitz
    This is suppossedly the last Alex Rider book, so I am pretty excited to see how Horowitz wraps things up.
  • Scorpia Rising by Anthony Horowitz

    Scorpia Rising by Anthony Horowitz
    This book got pretty heavy for an Alex Rider book, not so light hearted. A good book to finish the series on as I am sure that there is no way the character would go back for more after what happens in this book.
  • Conspiracy 365-February by Gabrielle Lord

    Conspiracy 365-February by Gabrielle Lord
    Pretty keen to work through this 12 book series. The previous book finished on a real cliffhanger, so I am keen to see what happens.
  • Conspiracy 365 by Gabrielle Lord

    Conspiracy 365 by Gabrielle Lord
    Cool book. Lots of action and again a great ending that makes you want to get the next book.
  • Light by Michael Grant

    Light by Michael Grant
    I was soooo amped when I saw this book in the shop..had to buy it. I have been waiting since last year for this, the final installemnt in the Gone series. I know it will be great.
  • Light by Micheal Grant

    Light by Micheal Grant
    Such a cool series and this last book wrapped things up nicely. I don't want to give too much away, but the action is thick and fast and at times it is never clear who will live and who will die. A must teen read!!
  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

    The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
    I was recommended this book by my friend Mrs Le Heron (she owns a bookshop, so she knows what she is talking about). I am looking forward to reading it.
  • The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak

    The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak
    Amazing book! Quite a different sort of a story, especially from the narrator's perspectiuve. Highly recommended.
