Neassa's Christmas List

Neassa's Christmas List

I know that it’s really early to be thinking about Christmas, but I can’t help it. It’s my favourite day of the year and I always start looking forward to it really, really early. And once I start thinking about it, I can’t stop.

 Every year, I ask for books for Christmas. Lots and lots of books. My friends all think I’m crazy when they walk around with their new phones and Gucci skirts, but, to be honest, I would prefer to be reading a good book then talking on a new phone.

This year, I have a really interesting list of books that I like the look of, and I thought, why not write a post about it? If you enjoy this post, then tell me about it in the comments and tell me if you have any books on your Christmas list and what they are! The Kill Order (Maze Runner, Book Four; Origin): Book Four;  Origin (The Maze Runner Series) (9780385742894): Dashner, James: Books
  1. The Kill Order

I really want the Kill Order by JamesDashner for Christmas. It is the fourth book in the Maze Runner book, a series that I really enjoy because it is really unique, unlike any other series I have read.

They are about a group of children who are trapped in a maze and they have to try and escape. They go through many more challenges to try and earn a normal life for each of them.

Future Friend - Bookstation
  1. Future Friend

Future Friend by David Baddel is a book that I am really looking forward to reading because David Baddel is one of my favourite authors. He writes books that are light and funny.

My favourite of his books is The Taylor Turbochaser which is about a  girl in a wheelchair who is chasing her dreams even though having wheelchair makes it difficult and I hope that “Future Friend” is like this book

Dancing the Charleston
  1. Dancing the Charleston

Dancing the Charleston is a book by Jacquline wilson, another one of 

My favourite authors. She writes books about people who are going through hard timeless at that point

My favourite Jacqueline Wilson book is Queenie and I have been told that these two are similar and I can’t wait to read it!

Middle School: From Hero to Zero
  1. Middle school: Zero to Hero

This is the tenth book in the Middle School series, a series that I really enjoy because they are funny, light and really, really easy to read. They are by another one of my favourite authors, James Patterson.

The Middle School books are about a boy called Rafe hohas difficulties in school and often lands himself in trouble because of it. He is a great artist and draws lots of pictures of his troubles, of his teachers and of the people he likes.

So this is my Christmas list for books this year. If you liked it and would like Saoirse to do her Christmas list as well, then tell us 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
