Dear Year 9,
Please reply to this post telling us
1) About a book you read over the summer – give a brief review.
2) About what book you have chosen today – how is it a bit different from what you normally read? What drew you to this book?
Here is my post about my reading:
One of my favourite summer reads was ‘Radio Silence’ by Alice Oseman. I loved the characters, which felt authentic and true-to-life, and the storyline follows a teenaged girl who is obsessed with an obscure podcast series. It’s about friendships, self-discovery, there being more to life than school… Without giving too much away, if you loved ‘Fangirl’ by Rainbow Rowell, I would say this is just as good or perhaps even better (which is saying a lot as I really loved ‘Fangirl’!).
A new book which I will be starting this weekend is ‘The Bell Jar’ by Sylvia Plath. This book was recommended to me by colleagues and some of the sixth form. It is about a young woman experiencing mental health issues and, from the first couple of pages, she seems like a sympathetic character and it’s written in an engaging style. I’m looking forward to finding out more!
Now, over to you – please click ‘reply’ and tell us about your reading.
Mrs Sharp 🙂
