Read It, watch it or the other way round?
I normally read books before I watch the film. I think this makes you angry with the film and not the book if it's not as good as you thought it would be. However at the weekend i watched 'I Capture the Castle'. It was a really good film and I now wonder if i should read the book. I don't want to get annoyed with the book but if it's a good book i don't want to miss out on it. Arrggg! this is really confusing. What do you think? Lucy :)

My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece
My SIster Lives on the Mantelpiece is one of the eight books shortlisted for the Carnegie Award, and it is the only one I have read so far. I chose this book before I realised it was shortlisted for the Award because it seemed like a challenging read. It is gritty and very true-to-life, and faces some deep rooted issues, such as racism and serious bullying. It gives a unique view on a family torn apart by the death of a loved one, by the only member of the family who was too young to remember her when she died. It will have you laughing and crying and is an extremely emotional book. I really hope it wins the Carnegie Award. Ciara x

Films or Books?
You know we are making book trailers/ film-y things. What's your fav? Books, films, or both? Also do you read the book then watch the film or watch the film, like it and read the book. See ya, Kx
