Saoirse's September

Hi everyone! This week, I thought we could do things a little differently. It's just me, writing a blog post on my own (a rare occurrence), so I thought I would write a post about the books I read in September.

This month was a good month for me, as I read (and bought!) a lot of books :).

Let's get into the list!

1. Morganville Vampires 3-5 by Rachel Caine.



Rating: 7/10

This is a series about a girl (Clare Danvers) who moves to a quiet town close to home to attend college. What she doesn't realise is that this "quiet" town is crawling with vampires. After an attack she at her dorm, she moves into the Glass House, where she learns the truth about Morganville. She wants to leave ASAP, but will she be able to get past the vampires and will she leave her newfound friends....


2. Immortals: Evermore by Alyson Noel


Rating: 6/10

This is the first book in a series about a girl (Ever) who falls for a boy she meets in school. But this is no ordinary girl - or boy for that matter. Ever can read minds and see auras, and Damen is the only person she has met who seems to have none. She slowly falls for him as he brings her to beautiful places, but all is not what it seems... 




3. Twilight: New Moon (Book 2) by Stephanie Meyer

    Rating: 6/10

I bought this book for myself, as I really enjoyed Twilight. This book was good, but not as good as the first. It follows the story of Bella, a normal girl who falls for Edward and beautiful and different boy. But in the first chapter he leaves her heartbroken. But all is not what it seems... What is going on?




4. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Rating: 8/10

I bought this book because I had read the Delirium series and loved it. This book didn't disappoint! It is about a girl who has to relive her last 24 hours over and over again, trying to perfect them each time. I really enjoyed its originality,. 



That's it! Some of you may be skeptical on whether I read all those (6) books in just 30 days. I can tell you, on my honour, I did. I read extremely fast (something that isn't always a good thing) and very often. I might write a blog post about that, actually, if this one gets a good response. 

Thanks for reading until the end. I hope you enjoyed this. I would definitely recommend buying/borrowing any (or all) of the books I mentioned above.

Happy reading!

Saoirse

Our Favourite Books

     Our Favourite Books We have decided to do this blog post a little bit differently than normal. Instead of us writing the blog post on the perspective of both of us at the same time, we are going to split this blog post in half, I (Neassa) am going to write half of it in my perspective and Saoirse is going to do the other half in hers. Neassa What is your favourite reading genre? My favourite genre of books is fiction. I like a lot of the categories included in that genre like fantasy and comedy. I like to read books that are really different from the last book that I read. That’s why I often go from books like the Hunger Games to books like Diary of a Wimpy Kid. My very favourite part of fiction is fantasy. I really like reading about witches and wizards, but in quite a realistic way. My second favourite part of fiction is books that are really dramatic and a bit sad. Who is your favourite author? My favourite author is probably Jacquline Wilson, although it changes with great reg

Why you don’t like reading

           Why you don’t like reading In this blogpost we are going to talk about a lot of common reasons why people don’t like reading and how to get around these problems. We know that there are so many different reasons that people don’t like reading and we are only going to cover the basic ones. Teachers Teachers are actually a huge problem when it comes to children reading. They often make their classes read books that they don’t want to read as part of their work. These books are usually classics or books that are quite complicated and very “wordy” [meaning that they have a lot of words and phrases that are uncommon or rarely used]. Not all teachers are like this, though. When I [Saoirse] was in sixth class [fifth grade] I read “Holes” by Louis Sachar. This turned out to be one of my favourite books so that ended up being a good thing. Another problem with teachers is that they rarely have very good or interesting books in their class library. For us, this is a big problem becaus
