I have been reading The Celts by Alice Roberts. A fascinating exploration of the rather fragmentary history of the Celtic peoples, drawing on classical authors and archaeological evidence. Necessarily rather an overview but very interesting and an enjoyable read.

I have almost finished "Norse Mythology" by Neil Gaiman. He retells stories of Odin, Thor, Balder and other Norse Legends in a way that really brings the characters to life and explores the relationships of Gods, giants and mortals. I would recommend this to everyone, especially those interested in myths and legends.

I am just finished reading 'The Great Automatic Grammatizator and Other Stories' by Roald Dahl. This is a collection of some of Roald Dahl's short stories and I would wholeheartedly recommend this collection. It has some really funny moments in the stories, and really allows you to escape for a little while.

I have just started The Light Jar by Lisa Thompson. This is a story about hope and friendship. This story tells us that we can even in the darkest times find a way to light up the Dark. A challenging read for 11-13 year olds.

Available to borrow from our library.

I have nearly finished reading "A Thousand Splendid Suns" by Khaled Hosseini. It is set in Afghanistan in 1970s to 2000s. The book is beautifully written with a gripping plot and it is teaching me a lot about life for women under the Taliban. I recommend this book for students in Year 10 and above.
