    What do you love about reading? 

    I love reading (but I didn’t always!). I used to find it a bit boring and I would get distracted all the time and just want to wander off and do something else. However…once I found books that suited me, I found that I loved reading! As a teenager and now an adult, I look forward to opening up my book after a long day and finding out what the characters get up to next!

    What is your favourite book of all time? 

    That’s a tricky question but if I had to decide, I would probably say ‘Matilda’ by Roald Dahl as that was the first book I read that I couldn’t put down. It was the first book that I read that made me excited to read. I love that Matilda is a strong willed girl who seeks revenge!

    Is there an author that inspires you? 

    Again, a tricky question! I’ve had a think and I’ve decided that the author A.A Milne inspires me as the words in his Winnie the Pooh books inspire me. My favourite quote is:

    “How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”
    —Winnie the Pooh

    Hi!,
    I have two favourite books: Wonder by R.J. Palacio and also Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. They are two books which really got me hooked!

    The thing I love most about reading is that you can explore magical worlds and creative fantasies whenever you want. I love the feeling when you are absorbed in a book and you just can’t stop reading!

    What do you love about reading?

    Personally, I love reading because it helps me escape any troubles that I might be having. It takes me on a journey through many different stories and helps calm my mind. It’s a calming way to take away my troubles and it’s an enjoyable activity that I can do anytime of the week.

    I don’t really have a favourite book but I like reading about Anime and Animals. I really like the book Running Wild. I love to read a book. Right now I am reading Northen Lights from the season His Dark Materials. I don’t really have an inspiring author because I like most books.

    Hi!
    Happy World Book Day! I love lots of books however my favourite genre would have to be action and adventure. I really like reading because it can be really relaxing and whisk you off to a whole new world.

    My favourite book is either The Hobbit or Swallows and Amazons because they are both really exciting and I couldn’t put the book down because i really wanted to know what was going to happen. So it made me asked questions and i was really intrigued.

    I really like The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse
    Book by Charlie Mackesy because it has some really inspiring quotes such as ‘the hardest thing to do is to forgive yourself’ because they are true things we=hi hi comfort you. They also put things into perspective.

  14. Hi everyone – here are my answers 😀

    What do you love about reading?
    I love the fact when you read a book, you can relate to certain characters . Also, when reading a book, you feel that you are in the scene with the characters.

    What is your favourite book of all time?
    I think my favourite book has to be Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Even though I read a ton of other books that I love, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is magical and has something that other books don’t.

    Is there an author that inspires you?
    Louis Sachar inspires me because of his writing style and the way he captures moments in his books. I also love the tension he creates.

    Have a nice day,
    Nika
