My favourite book

Posted on: January 13th, 2018 by SRC Club Member - Aarushi | 10 VIC


I liked the book Mahatama Gandhi, because it was the history of India how it get it independence by non violence.

I can learn more about the history of India by borowing more books from the library and reading them.

Thank you

Horrid Henry and the Mummy’s Curse by Francesca Simon

Posted on: January 13th, 2018 by SRC Club Member - Anthony | 7 NSW


This book is funny.

Henry is so naughty! He has a big tantrum in the shop and yells “I want doughnuts.”

And then he becomes a mummy-maker using toilet paper on his friend.

He is a super dooper naughty boy.

Read this book. You will laugh and laugh.

A Review on A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

Posted on: January 13th, 2018 by SRC Club Member - Lily | 12 NSW


A Monster Calls is a spell-bounding book, even though when I first started reading it I was completely confused about how everything was tied together, I still love this book.

I managed to finish it in one day and was really disappointed when I got to the last page.

The further I went through this book the better it got until the very end where it had me just about in tears.

It is an amazing book all about love and courage and how hurtful yet healing the truth can be.

Posted on: January 13th, 2018 by SRC Club Member - Anne | 10 VIC


‘Dead girls don’t lie’ is an emotional story about a girl called Jaycee, who always does what she thinks is the right thing.

Until her best friend Rachael got murdered.

That was when Jaycee went on her way to set things right again.

With a twist ending that keeps you clinging to the edge of your chair, I rate this book 4/5

Dreamer’s Pool by Juliet Marillier

Posted on: January 13th, 2018 by SRC Club Member - Laila | 14 VIC


A lady saved from a path of vengeance by a mysterious benefactor. Seeks companionship in a most unlikely place, together Blackthorn and Grim unravel a story filled with twists and turns, lies and treachery, a story like no other.

This book has many winning elements, but it was the plot, a real roller coaster ride filled with unexpected plot twists and the individual, idiosyncratic writing style adopted by Juliet Marillier, of writing in different character perspectives allowing us to delve deeper into the world of Blackthorn and Grim that won me over completely.

EVERYONE should read this book at least 1NCE in a lifetime.

Diary of Whimpy Kid: The Getaway

Posted on: January 13th, 2018 by SRC Club Member - Holly | 11 VIC


The Heffley family go on a Christmas holiday to a so called ‘paradise.’ But with an embarrassing family pretty much immune to being normal is this holiday all its cracked up to be?

I thought this book was OUTSTANDING, with a mix of comedy and super cringe-worthy moments.

I love the Diary of a whimpy kid series and I was certainly not disappointed with this latest edition.

I give it 5 stars and recommend it for both girls and boys 9-12 years old

Alone on a Wide, Wide Sea is written by the amazing author Michael Morpurgo!

I definitely had to rate the book 5 stars because it can make you laugh and cry.

It is about a boy called Arthur who is separated from his sister, Kitty in England and sent on an overcrowded boat to Australia, were he forms and unlikely bond with a boy named Marty.

While Mr Piggy bacon is watching their every move, can they escape?

Geronimo Stilton: The Mouse Hoax

Posted on: January 13th, 2018 by SRC Club Member - Thomas | 7 NSW


This book is to entertain.

It’s awesome.

It’s a mini-mystery book.

There is a mystery for the reader to solve with the help of clues.

I rate it 5 out of 5.

I recommend this book for children aged 3 or over who like mysteries.

This is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp

Posted on: January 13th, 2018 by SRC Club Member - Hannah | 17 NSW


For a more mature audience, this book is an eye-opening page turner that I devoured in one night.

As a school shooting occurs, and readers see it from different characters’ perspectives, they feel empathy for everybody – sometimes, even the shooter himself.

Read this book if you are a sucker for sad stories or love a good thriller – both are relevant during this novel. I rate it 4 and a half stars for an enticing backstory and characters you won’t forget any time soon.
