Happy New Year!
I know, it's April but nonetheless it is the first blog post of 2011. Not because I've been lazy of course! 2011 has been quite eventful with the Arab people in revolt and the upcoming Royal Wedding! Of course nobody is actually going to watch the Royal Wedding, a billion people will switch on their television and leave it on the channel because they feel they should watch it despite the fact they fell asleep before they entered the church. What am I going to be doing on the day? Not watching it, that's for sure, the wedding is for people that either think Katie Price getting hitched is a major event or they are part of the British psuedo-aristocracy. Now that I have finished my slightly cynical, stereotypical, judgmental rant I might get on to the topic of literature. I've read quite a bit this year, from Euripedes' 'Medea' to Michael Murpurgo's 'War Horse'. 'War Horse' is a great read and I wholeheartedly recommend it. [Steven Spielberg is to release an adaptation of it in December]. Ken Kesey's 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' was a brilliant read that told the story of Randall McMurphy in an asylum and was a great study of the human mind. Currently I am not really reading much due to exams but I have a brilliant idea! Instead of watching the future king go down the aisle, why not sit down with a book and read? -Calvin

Today at Hazlehead Book Group we discussed the novels shortlisted for the 2010 Carnegie Children's Book Awards. We also discussed 'Twilight' by Stephanie Meyer with some members of the group liking the novel while Mrs. Hill and some other members thought it was badly written.
