Activity 2 Day 5 Week 1 - Summer Learning Journey 2016


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.


C:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\Catching Fire book cover image.jpgBook 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.
The Reason why I would read this is because this book has heaps of adventures and challenges to make throughout her journey. Also Katniss is such a loving and caring person and would do anything for her family. I also love drama and action books to build detailed stories to real life. I could imagine all the pain and sacrifice through katniss.

  1. Thanks for another great book recommendation Lusia, awesome stuff! I like that you have told us your reasons for wanting to recommend this book, it shows that you have really thought about why you would want to recommend it.

    I enjoy reading drama and action books too, they're always so exciting! This book sounds like it really engages with the reader, and it must be well written if you find that you can really relate to the characters involved. Have you read the other books in the Hunger Games series? If you have, which one is your favourite?

    Thanks for sharing :-)

    Dan.
