Novel Study Week 5 - Theme

Hi everyone. The discussion this week centres around themes in what we're reading. We're just starting to explore what a theme is and how we can use our skills as great readers to figure out what the author's message is and the theme they are writing about.

 Here are our first thoughts - our initial thinking - so join in the discussion and tell us about the themes in the books you're reading.

Novel Studies Week 4

Think about the book you are reading at the moment.  What would you change in it?   This is the same process when you are writing.   What would you change in your writing to add more impact - to grab the reader's attention and create that vivid image in their heads?

If you wouldn't change a thing in the book you're reading, then write about why you wouldn't.  What makes that book work so well for you?  What has the author done to achieve this?
