I know this isn't related to maths but I'm desperate.

 

 

I'm in year 8 and this is the perfect time to read while I'm not busy in the future.

 

But I can't find books that I'd enjoy...

 

I like fiction. But it's rare to find the good kind. 

 

 

Any book advice?

 

Thanks :)

I just found out that 451 Fahrenheit is the temperature when paper starts to burn. I probably read that one soon. I read some of the Sherlock Holmes adventures. I like  "The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb" and  "A Case of Identity" the most.

 

Last year 7UP tell me about "The Grapes of Wrath" when he was reading it. He say what ever you do don’t drink too much wine while reading it because you will find out the hard way about "The Wrath of Grapes".  It take me awhile to figure out his joke. I still laughing.  hahahaha

it ask you some questions and then recomend books you might like.

 

 

For school I am reading “Old Yeller” it is about a dog and it is set in the old days of 1860s. 

 

I also reading Romeo and Juliet because my GF want me to do the balcony scene with her.

I like it but it take a while to get used to the old language.

Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury

 

The Grapes of Wrath - John Steinbeck

 

The Count of Monte Cristo - Alexandre Dumas

 

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

 

These should get you started......[ I highly recommend the second one.....my favorite book of all time....!!!]
