Wednesday Book Party

So there's the roll call of what we're all reading....

Ms Metcalfe- reading Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham- memoir. Suitable for senior students.

Kim- true beleiver by Nicholas Sparks. This "Sparked" a discussion about romance stories and his novels in general. (see what I did there?)

Lana- The Mortal Instruments: City of Glass. Such a popular series.

Aki- Parallel- "What if you woke up to a new life everyday?"

Irene- The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. This has been recommended so many times, and apparently the movie is also very good.

We had a highly successful bakesale last week, raising more than enough to pay for our trip to the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival next Thursday. Thanks to everyone at school who supported us and to everyone (especially parents and grandparents) who provided the superlative baking to sell.

We'll be reporting back after our trip! We're booked in to see...

Grace Taylor, amazing spoken word poet- check out this interview

Anthony Horowitz- writer of the well-known Alex Rider series and now Sherlock Holmes novel Moriarty. Check out his site here.

Laurie Halse Anderson, writer of The Impossible Knife of Memory. Check out her site here.

Morris Gleitzman- written soooooo many books for children and young adults. His site is here.
