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 Fantasy to Graphic Novels. In the Carnegie Club we will be discussing the different novels 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 11-17 years old we like to read a variety of different genres. At the moment we have around 7 members in the club: My Name's Rebecca and it's 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 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 any sub genre within that 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 worship Ruta Sepetys' books because she is such a fantastic writer. My favourite is 'Salt to the Sea' which is so good I can't even think of words to describe it. I'm Joshua and this year my team came 2nd in the NI heat of the Kids' Lit Quiz. I enjoy reading- especially mythology (particularly anything by Rick Riordan), fantasy like the Bloodguard series and Darkmouth and historical fiction like Where the World Ends. Hi. I'm Zac. I like historical and war themed books. Some of my favourite reads include 'Salt to the Sea', 'Wolf Wilder', The Machine Gunners' and the Charlie's War series - all amazing books which I thoroughly recommend. Hi. I'm Rose. I enjoy reading dystopia, fantasy and adventure. Among my favourites are the FAYZ series by Michael Grant and The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Hi. I'm Aine. I like reading books by Jacqueline Wilson. I also like dystopia like 'Divergent' and 'The Hunger Games' because I enjoy plot twists and thrillers and action books.
