8 for 8

This year at school, there is a book challenge called 8 for 8. It is extremely similar to last year’s 7 for 7 book challenge, except this one has eight books and more things you can do to enter.

  7. Everything All At Once by Steven Camden (aka Polarbear)Image result for everything all at once book
  8. And The Ocean Was Our Sky by Patrick NessImage result for and the ocean was our sky book

These eight books are all set from different perspectives and times. Everything All At Once is a book of poetry telling a story about school life. The Skylarks war has romance and history. There are many other things that make each book unique.

The things you can do to enter are:

  • Film a book trailer video
  • Make a piece of artwork
  • Write a piece of creative writing
  • Perform a performance
  • Write a blog or a review
  • Film a booktalking video
  • Or absolutely anything else!

These have to be based on your favourite 8 for 8 book, to try and encourage more people to read that book.
