I am a Grade 9 student, and this is my blog for posting reviews on the books I have read- like a virtual reading log.
I read every night for around half an hour, and have English class 3 days a week (hence this website title).
I like to read realistic fiction books, but am trying to challenge myself to reach out and try new genres more. For example, over my summer holiday I read “Little Women” which is a classic novel. I found the writing style quite difficult, but I continued reading it because I loved the story, I even read the sequel “Good Wives”!
I think reading different time periods/ genres will help me expand my vocabulary and understand the way of speaking from different time periods, and the style of writing in different genres.
My goal is to read 8 books this term (between the middle of August and the beginning of December) which gives me 16 weeks, 112 days in total. That means a book per fortnight!
I hope you enjoy reading my book reviews and get some good recommendations on what to read next!
