Book of the week 25/11/12

The Golden Acorn
I have just read this book and it is FANTASTIC!!! Its about a young boy named Jack Brenin who after meeting a Druid (they are a bit like wizards and witches), a talking raven and a talking tree, he gets caught up in a extraordinary adventure which includes learning to fly, learning magic and travelling back in time. Catherine Cooper's  terrific tale of nature is highly recommended, its so good I didn't want to put it down! I would give this brilliant book a fantastic 9/10 because it is so good! I'm looking forward to reading the next ones!

Book of the week 18/11/12

I know, I know that's not the actual date but I've been engrossed in a really good book(I haven't read all of it yet, so no, it's not my book of the week) my family have been really busy with work, so I just haven't had the time to write it. Anyway the book of the week is...
It's getting round to Christmas, and I always get annuals for Christmas so this is what I've decided to write about. I have lots of annuals but my favourite annual is TopGear (if you've read my first book of the week you'll know I'm a TopGear boy!)
It contains all the fun and funny facts about the presenters and the episodes and I really like them because they've got puzzles, games, quizzes, competitions and that's what makes them so good! There are annuals for all children like: Angry Birds, Charlie and Lola and Transformers to Pokemon, Thomas the Tank Engine, and Peppa Pig. If  you are a child and you are reading this you should put them on your Christmas list, and if you are an adult you should get some for your children from Father Christmas!

Radio Shropshire

I was asked to go on Radio Shropshire to talk about my blog, so I said yes. I went on it last week on the Vicki and Adam show in the afternoon and it was really good. I had a tour of the building (it was a bit like the Tardis. It looks small on the outside but its huge inside) and I met all the people who work there. The best bit was when I actually went on the radio, it was exiting but I was nervous, really nervous. There were loads of buttons and microphones and Vicki asked me lots of questions about all the books I like to read and Adam asked me about the letter from 10 Downing Street.  After a while my throat got a bit dry so I was glad when they started to ask my mum questions so I could have a drink of water, plus I had a cough and it was quite hard to not cough.

Unfortunately I can't find my interview, so you won't be able to listen to it, but I can tell you this, it was BRILLIANT!!!

Book of the week 11/11/2012

Dark Fire
I have been reading this book for the past week and it is brilliant. The fifth out of six dark fire is jam packed full of drama, action, adventure, sadness and actually quite a lot of gore. I would give it 8/10 because as I said at the beginning it is really exiting. Everything is getting really complicated now that David Rain (the main character) has returned and dragons all over the world are coming out of the ground! David's daughter (Alexa) is the key to everything. Can he solve the confusing mystery behind all this? With dark forces growing stronger every second everything is about to get much more complicated than it already is...
If all of this is your thing, pick up the first book (The Fire Within) and start reading!!!

Update on bullying

The two bullies have stopped now. I have told my teacher and the head mistress and they have spoken to them so hopefully that will be the end of it. They haven't spoken to me recently but I don't care as long as they leave me alone.

Thank you for all the support and comments I really appreciate it. I will post about it if anything starts to happen.

Back to posting about books and reading.

Today has not been a very nice day at school due to two boys who have decided to bully me. Its been going on for a few weeks but today has been a bad day. This is a list of all the things that the bullies have done to me:
  •  I've been called weird because I don't have an xbox or a  game called Halo. They also say I'm not cool because of this and laugh at me
  • At school we did projects on habitats and somebody brought some cactus in, and they started touching them. They stared to say things like "touch the cactus" and when I said no they started to say "your scared", I still refused and then afterwards they couldn't get the spikes out and they stared to sink in.
  • They both have alter egos for example at break we were playing tag and when I was "it". They both came up to me and said "tag me". I know better because they are either going to trip me up then tag me while I'm on the ground or tag the other bully and whisper "go and tag Matthew" And the person who got whispered to would trip me up. This has happened today. I have been tripped up a few times today
  • We have a school council at our school and one of the bullies was saying "don't vote for Matthew" and guess what? I didn't get elected for anything, all thanks to him. 

There are a lot of other things that they have done to me, but if I wrote all of them this post would be a mile long. All I want to do is go to school, enjoy myself and be left alone. I don't do this to others and I don't know why they have started picking on me. They know I won't do anything back, even though I want to.

There is one in particular that I want to go and tell him what I really think of him (which has nothing good in it), but he'll just go and tell the teacher what I said. I feel as if I tell the teacher I will be dobbing them in and it will be worse. It's really frustrating but my parents are sorting it out. I don't feel like going to school when things are like this so I hope its sorted quick.

If you think this bullying is wrong please comment. If you are doing this to someone then please stop. The person you are doing it to will be upset, sad and probably scared. Its really mean and cruel.

Book of the week 4th November 2012

I have read lots of Michael Morpurgo books which are all fantastic but my favourite is

KENSUKE'S KINGDOM is a great book because it's exiting and you never want to put the book down. Michael is a young boy with his mum,dad and dog. One day Michael's family decide to set sail to the sea to explore new and exiting countries. But one night a terrible storm rages and the Peggy Sue (the boat his family were sailing in) capsizes. Michael finds himself washed up on a beach with his dog. He curls up to die with his dog but later he wakes up with a plate full of fish, fruit and fresh water. Micheal is not alone...
Everybody including adults should try this book. If drama, action and adventure is your thing then you should DEFINITELY read it!!!
