This post is for the Student Blogging Challenge – Challenge 6. For this challenge, we are allowed to write about anything we want to! So, I have decided to write about… one of my passions/hobbies/interests which is Reading!
First of all… Why should you read?
Well, Reading is not only interesting, it is a great way to enhance your vocabulary and general knowledge! Books, are something that you can enjoy… Because, when you are reading a book, you can imagine all sorts of things, like what the characters in the book look like and so on.
So, reading is great! There are so many books in the world that you can read, so if you don’t like one particular book, why don’t you just read another one from those millions of books out there! Here are my recommendations for some books to read:
The Harry Potter series – by J.K. Rowling
The Harry Potter series is about a boy named Harry Potter who finds out he is a wizard. He goes to a magical school and meets his two best friends and also some enemies. Throughout the books, the forces of good and evil clash and Harry finds out to destroy the evil Lord Voldemort (the man who killed his parents) he has to kill all the parts of Voldemort’s soul concealed in objects to destroy Voldemort himself.
White Ninja – by Tiffiny Hall
Most of you not from Australia probably wouldn’t have heard of Tiffiny Hall, but she a Martial artist, author and trainer on Australia’s The Biggest Loser. White Ninja is her first Novel for children, in the Roxy Ran series consisting of three books. White Ninja (book 1) is about a girl called Roxy Ran who finds out she is capable of Martial Arts. She has to fight of the bullies at her school. One day, when a new boy comes to her school, he takes her to training. Roxy has to find the White Ninja before the Samurai’s (the ninja’s opponents) do.
The Truth About Verity Sparks – by Susan Green
The Truth About Verity Sparks is about a 13 year old girl called Verity Sparks who finds out that she has the ability to find things without really looking for them. This rare ability is called Teleagtivism. When Verity loses her job as a milliner, she goes to live with another family since her parents are both dead. Verity helps the family solve mysteries but she herself has many mysterious of her own, like who her real parents were, since she knew that the parents she remembered having had adopted her.
Floors – by Patrick Carman
Floors is a very interesting book about a boy called Leo who works at a very mysterious hotel, where he finds boxes that lead him to hidden floors and strange puzzles. Leo must face different challenges, but he has a new friend to help him. The hotels fate is in danger and so is Leo’s.
The Secret Series – by Pseudonymous Bosch
I have only read the first book in the series… and all I can say is… it’s a SECRET. So, read it for yourself to find out what it’s about. The first book is very good and I am told that the following books are really good as well.
Well, I’m afraid that’s all I have time for!
