TY Book Recommendations 4

Today we go on a weekend Exodus, returning on Tuesday. IV formers should be doing lots of reading over the weekend for their Extended Essays. Here are two more recommendations-

Rebecca Stewart has read Cassandra Clare's City of Bones :- This book caught my eye, not only due to the interesting cover but because of the blurb. This describes how the book brings together one of my favourite cities - New York - and fairytales, with creatures such as werewolves and vampires. It is about a girl who gets caught up in a world she doesn't even believe in, and definitely know that she belonged in. It also deals with forbidden love. In my eyes it has everything you could wish for in a book. I definitely wasn't let down by it. It kept me wanting to read on. I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes a bit of fantasy.

Tom Gibbs is reading Stephen Ambrose's Band of Brothers:- I think this book is very good; it is a non-fiction account of World War II. It is about the 101st Airborne Division and it follows them from their initial training to the Battle of the Bulge. The book is good, I think, because there is always some action, and you always want to know what happens next. It gives you a deeper insight into what life was really like on the Western Front.
