The Regis School
Bognor Regis,

Beyond the bright sea
Just finished reading Beyond the Bright Sea, and although I felt it was a little slow, I enjoyed it. I thorough enjoyed Lauren Wolk's Wolf Hollow, which I think was a little more pacy. There were quite a few unanswered questions though in Beyond the Bright Sea, and I would have preferred it if they were resolved!

Saint Death!
I loved Saint Death by Marcus Sedgwick. At first I was worried I wouldn't like the subject, because I don't really know much about Mexico and the cartel. But that didn't matter in the end, because it was utterly gripping. The tension at the card game was almost suffocating! A great unexpected ending too. Mrs Rahaman.

Easter reading
Well, I took home about 6 of the Carnegie books over the Easter holidays and managed to read 4 of them. Two in particular were fantastic! I loved Where the World Ends by Geraldine McCaughrean. Her description of life on the stac made me want to look up the actual island/stacs, and it was exactly how I imagined it. I also looked up the true story behind the book and wasn't disappointed, what an amazing tale. Mrs Rahaman

Nearly read them all.......
Hi, Miss Moon here. I'm on my last book now - Fever Crumb. I'm loving it. I think Philip Reeve is a fantastic author, and very funny too. Some of the humour he's added to Fever Crumb is brilliant. For example, the pub 'The Mott and Hoople'. Many younger students may not realise that 'Mott the Hoople' is a band from many years ago. Also some of the names of the places are actual places in London, but he's adapted the names slightly - very clever and very funny!

Carnegie 2010
We've got a small group of students this year shadowing the Carnegie, but I'm so impressed - some of them have read a book in a night, so I think we're going to have a race to see who can read all the titles this year.

Black Rabbit Summer
I've just re-read Black Rabbit Summer, it took me two nights! I originally read it a while back when the book first came out and I remembered then that I couldn't put it down. This time it was exactly the same, even though I roughly remembered what happened in the book I still enjoyed it. It moves with a thrilling pace. Miss Moon

Ostrich boys
Just finished reading Ostrich Boys last night. It's got lots of twists and turns. You start to think... will they ever get to 'Ross'? There's a real twist in the end and it makes you think about how the boys have behaved to their friend. I really wanted to see what would happen to them at the end.... How much trouble did they get into? Hope everyone's coming to our meeting tonight and that we'll get some reviews posted. Miss Moon.

Good so far....
I'm about a third of the way through Ostrich boys and loving it too.... It's a great adventure that I can just imagine was the kind of thing I'd do when I was a teenager. I used to love going on 'risky' adventures with my mates. I can't decide which book is my favourite so far - I'm really enjoying all of them. Miss Moon

Love em'!
I've just finished Creature of the night by Kate Thompson and loved it! A gripping read, I couldn't put it down and virtually read it in one sitting. I love the way that Kate Thompson brings Irish folk tales into her books. I was also dying to find out what happened to Lars... you'll have to read it to find out! Miss Moon

Our First Meeting
Well about ten people turned up on the first week maybe because of they forgot or something but we still managed to have fun! We started off just reading and chatting about the books and then spent time "jazzing" up our home page! Claire (Miss Moon is sure more people will turn up next week!)

First Chapter of The knife of never lettting go!
Well, I found the first chapter very helpful. It seemed to explain a lot but still keeping hold of the mystery element. I can't wait to find out what that strange hole in the noise is. I'm probably not going to let go of it this weekend. The author was very clever the way he adapted the writing to suit Todd: spelling mistakes, Abbreviations and such. Thanks for Reading Ben

We're having our first Carnegie meeting after school today. We're going to meet every Thursday from 2.50pm - 4.00pm. We have drinks and biscuits then have a good old chat about the books. I can't wait! Miss Moon
