  • Conspiracy 365 March

    Conspiracy 365 March
    The third book. I am quite keen to see how they get Cal out of the situation he was left in at the end of the last book.
  • Wonder by R.J. Palachio

    Wonder by R.J. Palachio
    I was lent this book by my friend Mrs Haddock. She reckons it is brilliant (and it probably will be!).
  • Conspiracy 365 March

    Conspiracy 365 March
    I am quite enjoying this series, thogh I don't know that it will hold my attention for a full 12 books. I can see the appeal of them though. Right I'm off to get April!
  • Saving Sam by Susan Brocker

    Saving Sam by Susan Brocker
    I have wanted to read this for sometime, and now that we are using this as a shared novel, it is the perfect excuse to read it.
  • Divergent by Veronica Roth

    Divergent by Veronica Roth
    Recommended to me by Laura Burne.
  • Divergent by Veronica Roth

    Divergent by Veronica Roth
    Wow, great book. I really enjoyed this one. Great female protangonist-one for those who enjoyed the hunger games.
  • Rebel Heart by Moira Young

    Rebel Heart by Moira Young
    Sequel to Blood REd Road, which I read last year and initially found it hard to get into Blood Red Road ended up being a really good book, so I have high hopes for this one.
  • Rebel Heart by Moira Young

    Rebel Heart by Moira Young
    Again, like Blood Red Road, a little slow to get into. Not sure I enjoyed this one as much. Many of the charcaters are difficult to like. It did have a good twist towards the end...enough sothat I would read a third book-which is almost a certainty to be written.
  • Long Way Home by Michael Morpurgo

    Long Way Home by Michael Morpurgo
    In the end this was a pretty good book. No real surprises in the plot and it was a little predictable,butstill, it was well written.
  • Genesis by Bernard Beckett

    Genesis by Bernard Beckett
    I bought this books because I have reaad other books by the same author and really enjoy his work.
  • Genesis by Bernard Beckett

    Genesis by Bernard Beckett
    What a fantastic book! I really enjoyed this and what a great twist at the end! Worth a read. An intelligent book that makes you really think.
  • Long Way Home by Michael Morpurgo

    Long Way Home by Michael Morpurgo
    I bought this book as part of a set of Michael Morpurgo books. I generally like his writing, so am assuming that this will be a good book.
  • Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo

    Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo
    I am reading this as it came in the pack of Michael Morpurgo boook I bought.
  • Saving Sam by Susan Brocker

    Saving Sam by Susan Brocker
    Finally got around to finishing this. It was a good book, with plenty of excitement at the end.
  • Kensuke's Kingdom by Michale Morpurgo

    Kensuke's Kingdom by Michale Morpurgo
    A well written book. I thought the ending a little convenient, but maybe I am getting cynical.
  • This Side of Paradise by Dr Stephen Layne

    This Side of Paradise by Dr Stephen Layne
    My first e-book! I bought this because I had just met the author that day and knew I would see him the next day. So I wantedto be able to tell him that I had read his book.
  • This Side of Paradise by Dr Stephen Layne

    This Side of Paradise by Dr Stephen Layne
    I had great pleasure in telling Stephen Layne that i had read his book cover to cover, It was a good book too.What was cool was becing able to relate the mad Dad charcter to some of the stories that Stephen Layne had spoken about.
  • Star Girl by Jerry Spinelli

    Star Girl by Jerry Spinelli
    I bought this on Amazon as an e-book, as Stephen Layne did a book sell on it today and I was really inspired to read it.
  • Star Girl by Jerry Spinelli

    Star Girl by Jerry Spinelli
    A great book! Very cool charcters. Well worth a read.
  • The Other Side of Truth by Beverly Naidoo

    The Other Side of Truth by Beverly Naidoo
    I grabbed this book as it is a new set in the school and I always like to read books we have as sets.
  • The Other Side of Truth by Beverly Naidoo

    The Other Side of Truth by Beverly Naidoo
    Quite a good story. Certainly felt for the children in this book. A good story to make you stop and thinkabout how lucky you are.
  • Escape from Shangri La by Michael Morpurgo

    Escape from Shangri La by Michael Morpurgo
    The cover looks interesting as does the blurb. Should be a good read.
  • Escape from Shangri La by Michael Morpurgo

    Escape from Shangri La by Michael Morpurgo
    It was a good read (it only took me a few hours). I liked the characters and a well crafted story. I thought it especially good what happened to all the old age pensioners.
