When Paul Macdonald from the Children's Bookshop visited book club, he recommended some great new reads.
Here are just some of the ones chosen by L&L girls for purchase by the library.
Ladies & Literature is a Monte girls' book club, which meets every three weeks during term time to share their love of reading, organise some fun events and advise the library staff on great new reads and displays. The L&L club gives you the opportunity to connect with other girls who enjoy sharing what they have read, with guest speakers also joining us from time time.
Look forward to seeing you there!
What a fantastic Ladies & Literature meeting! The girls enjoyed delicious pizza whilst listening to four girls compete in our first"bilbliobattle"! Olivia Brown, Cecilia Sullivan, Olivia Vercoe, Claire Le Blond and Clare Cameron 'pitched' their a book to the group, who then voted on the most persuasive pitch. All the girls did a wonderful job and the meeting was fun, entertaining and full of lively conversation!
And I Darken, written by Kiersten White, won the most votes, so well done Cecelia for your enthusiasm in telling us about this exciting, fantasy novel to the group. See you all at our next meeting in term 3!
Great to welcome Mr Paul Macdonald back to Monte to share the latest and greatest releases. Thanks to the girls who chose some fantastic new books for our library. Can't wait to get reading!
So great to get together today to share our school holiday reading experiences. Thanks to everyone for adding to the lively discussion around some great reads.
Here's a taste of what the girls have been reading...
