What Cool Books @WCB Library

Group status: Friday Carnegie Club. Hilarious game of Carnegie Twister put everyone in a good mood.

Carnegie Club

Carnegie and Greenaway Club :) (Wellington College Belfast) In WCB we enjoy reading books! From Action and Adventure to Picture books. In the Carnegie/Greenaway club we will be discussing the different novels and picture books nominated for the awards. We will decide which books we enjoyed the most and which ones we think should be put on the long list and then the short list. Since we are 13-17 years old we like to read a variety of different genres. At the moment we have around 5 members in the club: My Name's Rebecca and its almost an impossible question to ask me my favourite genre but at the moment I like reading action/adventure, historical fiction and fantasy. My favourite books are those by Terry Pratchett, Chris Ryan and Philippa Gregory. Hello, I'm Ben G and my favourite genres are Humour and Horror I know they are completely different genres. One of the books I've enjoyed is mysterious and adventurous 'The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow' which was nominated for the Carnegie last year. Hello, I'm Giovanna My favourite reads are far too many - it's hard to shortlist them! But I have to mention the Lunar Chronicles (a twisted version of our childhood fairy tales) and the Heroes of Olympus (a brilliant continuation to Percy Jackson with lots of interesting characters). Five Children on the Western Front was the most emotional book I've read in a while (the ties between reality and fantasy are amazing). Hey, my name is Debi, I love to read books as much as I like chocolate-that is a lot. My favourite genre is romance and paranormal, and before you ask yes I even like that- the sappy kind. My favourite reads are Star-crossed and Hush Hush which hits you with action, plot twist and star-crossed lovers. I'm Joshua and this year I was on the Kids' Lit Quiz team because I enjoy reading- especially mythology (particularly anything by Rick Riordan) and fantasy like the Bloodguard series.
