Here’s the book cover for “Heartless!” A fantastic fairytale retelling!

Books, Reading, and Competition These are three of the main joys
that comes out of doing battle of the books, and most other people who have done it previously will agree. It is time for all of you readers to come together, join hands, and read.

In this competition, members are going to
read two to four books that you split between your groups. As a suggestion, the readers may want to read it twice, because while they read the books the readers will have to take notes and collect details you may have missed the first time around. Once the members have read all of the assigned books, they also have a quizlet you are supposed to help fill in too. This quizlet is only for the General Mclane students, and it will only be open to the fellow book battlers. In this year of battle of the books, they have taken in all types of genres. Here are some examples of some of the most popular book titles this year!

“Long before she was the terror of Wonderland — the infamous Queen of Hearts — she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love. Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the yet-unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere.”
