Neassa’s bookshelf

 Neassa’s bookshelf


I have a really big bookshelf in my room where I keep all of my books (that I don’t just borrow from Saoirse!).People often tell me that I have a weird bookshelf because I have a wide variety of books that I like on it.


I personally think that you can’t have a “weird” bookshelf as long as you have a bookshelf that is full of books that you love to read and show who you are as a reader. Whether you love to be on edge with a thriller or love to settle down with a laugh - a - minute comedy, your bookshelf should show everyone this.


I thought that it would be fun to write a post where I told aloof you what’s on my bookshelf. I really like all of these books right now so this is really what kind of books I like. I would be delighted if you could tell me one of the books on your bookshelf in the comments!


  1. Skulduggery Pleasant books


I have almost the entire Skulduggery Pleasant series on my bookshelf and I‘m always re-reading them because they are my favourite books. I love these books because they have a mix of fighting, darkness and humour. 


They are about a skeleton detective and his young sidekick trying to stop people from exposing magic to the world.They fight monsters, go against evil villains and foil evil plans to kill the world.


  1. Hetty Feather books


I have three of the Hetty Feather books on my shelf as well. I’ve read them all before and am currently in the process of collecting them to read again. I really enjoy these books because they show me what it would be like if I grew up in a different part of the world.


These books are about a girl called Hetty Feather who lives in a children’s home where she is taught how to be a perfect servant. Hetty soon realises that a servant's life isn’t for her and starts to make her own way in the world.


  1. The Wizards of Once

I have all of the Wizards of once books on my bookshelf as well. I have them all, but have only read the first one as of right now. I really like these books because they are about putting our differences aside and working together against the forces of evil.


They are about a princess and a chief’s son whose kingdoms hate each other. But when a seemingly extinct evil creature, they have to work together to save their kingdoms, their families and their friends.


Demon Dentist


Demon Dentist is my favourite Davd Walliams book because it is a little bit scary and it’s really fun to try and figure out what's going to happen. I like it because I can read it again and again and it always means something else to me.


This book is about a boy who hasn’t been to the dentist in years and is very suspicious of them all. When a new dentist arrives in town, he is sure that she is behind aloof he strange happenings in his town.


The Taylor Turbochaser


The Taylor Turbochaser is another book on my bookshelf. This is my favourite David Baddel book because it shows that it doesn’t matter if your a girl or a boy, disabled or not you can still chase your dreams.


This book is about a girl in a wheelchair who loves cars. She has a dream of becoming a racing driver but it’s going to be difficult. Her dad is a professional race car builder who doesn’t like her love of cars, so she sets out to show him she can do it if she puts her mind to it.


These are my favourite books on my bookshelf. I would be delighted if you could tell me your favourite books on your bookshelf in the comments.


Happy Reading

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

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 ma

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
