More Views!!
This week at book club we talked about the book Fire Colour One. We all had different views, with some thinking that the book was amazing and some not liking it at all. However we all liked the character Iris and the fact that she lit fires. We discussed how the parents did not seem to develop much. We also found the way that the book was written really good but parts of the book were very confusing especially when the book jumped to the past from the present without much warning or difference in the text. I found that the beginning of the book could have been better as it was quite confusing. Overall this has not been one of our favourite books to read.

Talking about books
last week at book club we discussed what parts of the books we liked and what parts we disliked. We started with One and then went on to The Rest of us Just Live Here. We all had slightly differing views and it was nice to see others' opinions on the books you have read.

Excitement, who will win?????
We are all very excited as we find out what book will win. We are having a huge party on Monday and we will get to miss a leson! We are all trying to predict the winner and at the moment most people think Apple and rain should win. This will cause great disappointment if it doesn't win. However most of us will be quite happy if any book wins!!!!!!!

Books books and more books.
In the weird and wonderful book club of woodrush high school we have been reading and reading and reading some more! We have had lots of disagreements over what books are good and what books are bad. This weeks book club has been all about making the schools book thingy look good and interesting as it was really boring before. Some of the members of book cub have been speeding away on the reading list and have already nearly finished them all!!!!!!!!!! Others of us have been been being slow coaches and have only read one or 2 books!!!!! We are loving reading them and you can check out our top 3 on the reading barometer which we have had huge discussions on which ones to have on the top 3. We will update you soon on what else has been happening so check back soon for more!!

First Blog Post
This week in book club we have had a look at the medium long list and it is not very long! Some of us don't recognise many of the books. However, we are excited to see how the short list turns out. We are hoping that More Than This and Smart make it because we love these books!
