Summer Blogging

Activity 2
Read the following three reviews of books that are really popular right now in Canada. If you had to choose one for Curious Kiwi to read on the plane, which one would you choose? Post the name of the book that you would chose on your blog. Below the title explain why you would choose that book.

Book 1: Catching Fire (The Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins
Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol - a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create. Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
Book 2: Matilda by Roald DahlC:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\Matilda book cover.jpg
Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves and Matilda may be just the one to do it!
Book 3: Diary of a Wimpy Kid – The Ugly TruthC:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\DoaWK image.jpg

Greg Heffley has always been in a hurry to grow up. But is getting older really all it’s cracked up to be? Greg suddenly finds himself dealing with the pressures of boy-girl parties, increased responsibilities, and even the awkward changes that come with getting older—all without his best friend, Rowley, at his side. Can Greg make it through on his own? Or will he have to face the “ugly truth.”

I would choose book 1: Catching Fire (The Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins because in the story there is a lot of action and I like to read about action.


  1. Hi Mei
    Have you read any of the books? What were they and what did you think of them?

  2. Hi Mei,

    My name is Madeleine and I live in Canada. I really enjoyed reading your blog! I love reading adventure novels too! Your teacher seems amazing, keep on learning. I love your writing style! Keep on writing and have an awesome day!

  3. Hi Mei,

    I've never read any of the Hunger Games books before, have you? What did you think of them if you have?

    Action books are a lot of fun to read, there's always so much going on and really hooks you in! What other type of books do you enjoy reading?

    Now that you have two different books for the plane ride over, I reckon you're just about all set for your learning journey. Well done on making it this far! I hope that you will come back soon and rejoin the Summer Learning Journey, there's still a week to go so plenty of time for you to keep on blogging!

    Keep up the great work, and I hope to read more from you soon :-)
