Goodbye forever?!?!
So as some of you may know this could be our last year doing Carnegie. I have loved doing Carnegie so much. Yes we have had our ups and downs as a group, but this year we have really pulled ourselves together. It has been a rollercoaster ride since day one for me, some days I have loved it others not so much. It is a great shame to have to finish Carnegie, and not be able to read the books first next year. But we have to take it on the chin, and pass our leadership roll down to the year sevens, soon to be year eights. I'm sure we all deeply regret having to say our goodbyes to such a fantastic and wonderful experience. So this is goodbye from the one and only Editors. 2015-2016.Names of all who have participated in Carnegie: Maia, Shannon, Casey, Holly, Amber, Autumn, Elliana and Ollie. For the last time goodbye!

Bye Bye carnegie!
Today is the last day of Carnegie for us, ever! We have had funny times and bad times but overall we have enjoyed it and would love to do it again. BUT WE CAN'T! We are year 8 so we cant do it again. But we have had such a fun time taking part and you have a good group of year 7s to do it next year for us! The books have been so good and interesting and we will miss reading them. Enjoy reading! From the Editors with our last and final, Bye Bye!

2 Books 1 week?!?!
Hey guys I have finished two more books and I really, really disliked the booked 'The lie tree' and I thoroughly enjoyed 'The rest of us just live here' for the most part, I have really enjoyed these books, I would definitely read them again. Minus the lie tree of course. -Casey

BOOKS
I was the last to join the year 8 crew and am on my 5th book already. My favourite is fire colour one it was so very well written that the words flowed into my mind seemlessly
Posted on: 26 May 2016



LIE TREE IS AWFUL
This book used such dreary drab language that I read 30 pages and had to give up as it made me feel bored....... Would not recommend to anyone at all
Posted on: 26 May 2016



Still going
Hiya, I'm still reading my forth book. I am not really enjoying this book as much as the others. It is the same writer as 'cuckoo song' and I didn't really enjoy that either. Maybe it is the writer or the style of book. But it definitely is not as good as the other three books I have read this year. I will still continue to read it but I cannot wait to get onto the next book. -Casey

Posted on: 17 May 2016



Just Finished!
Hiya guys, I have just finished my first book, 'There will be lies and then there will be the truth'. It was a very good book that included many interesting plot twists and surprises. I would recommend this book to people who like stories with mysteries in them as this book kept you on your toes the whole time. The storyline was very gripping and once I started reading it I couldn't put it down! An all round good book! Maia

Crime
Ollie Tandy has acted out the worst crime in a book readers world! He has told the end of a book to fellow book reader Shannon.
Posted on: 17 Jun 2015



Ollie is guilty
Ollie Tandy is denying crimes which have stacks of evidence against him. I do not think that he is going to get away with this one.
Posted on: 17 Jun 2015



OLLIE- Shannon
Ollie, you have committed the worst crime possible. You ruined a book that I am reading. You told me the rest of the story. THIS MAKES ME SOOOOO ANGRY!! I WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU!!!! I CAN'T EVEN READ THE BOOK NOW!!!
Posted on: 17 Jun 2015

After finishing 'APPLE AND RAIN', I have chosen to start reading 'THE BUFFALO SOLIDER'. The reason I have chosen to read this book is because I read the amazing review written by my fellow editor, Ollie Tandy! Thank you to Ollie for writing the review! Off to read my new book!

Apple and rain!
Hi. My name is Autumn and I have just joined the Colchester Academy carnegie group. After my first meeting, I took out the book ' Apple And Rain.' Due to this book being so fast paced, I could not put it down and ended up reading the book in about 3 hours. This book was amazing. I love reading much the same as most people watch TV, and due to this, I am an extremely fast reader. 'Apple And Rain'........ 10/10! Hope it wins....!

We are angry!
Hello and we are the spoiler police as you may know we have been censoring out spoilers but lately we heard a rumour that Casey Walsh was taking credit for the spoiler warnings sent by us as you can imagine this angers us greatly she claims that this multiperson spoiler preventing machine is only one person herself-courtesy of the spoiler police... tzzps,itzzf,yqdqcr yrg cypy
Posted on: 11 Jun 2015



Apple and Rain
I finished Apple and Rain 2 days ago, it has put me in a reading slump. I started reading when Mr dog. I had to put it down and start reading it from the beginning because I couldn't stop thinking about Apple and Rain the whole time.
Posted on: 11 Jun 2015



Beware of the spoiler police...
It has been made clear to me that a group by the name of the spoiler police have been censoring out spoilers like for example:SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER and that is why I like the ending to buffalo soldier this could be a real problem for some as they would feel violated or from my point of view a blessing-ollie courtesy of the spoiler police...
