Bishop Vaughan’s student reporter, Amelia Reynolds, has been interviewing staff all week to discover their favourite books as part of World Book Day. Here, she speaks to three more BVS staff about their recommended reads:

 

Mrs Reed:

What is your favourite book?

‘Murder at the Vicarage’ by Agatha Christie

Why is this your favourite book?

It was the first ever murder mystery book I read. I first read it when I was around twelve and it’s led to a fascination with the murder mystery genre.

Would you recommend this book? If so, to whom and why?

I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the mystery genre and books set in a quaint English village. I think a person of any age would love this book.

What is your favourite quote?

My favourite quote would have to be ‘tea and scandal’, I think that sums the book up quite nicely.

 

 

Mr Smith

 What is your favourite book?

My favourite book would have to be ‘The Girl with the  Dragon Tattoo’ by Stieg Larsson.

Why is this your favourite book?

The book is brilliantly written and the plot is filled with so many twists and turns, you never know what is going to happen next. I’m also a fan of the author and have read some of his other works.

Would you recommend this book? If so, to whom and why?

Yes! I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading as I feel it could be enjoyed by any age group. It’s so well written and the plot tackles so many sensitive issues that are relevant to teenagers today which I think makes this an excellent book for a teenage audience.

What is your favourite quote?

‘Everyone has secrets’.

 

Mr Davies (PE):

What is your favourite book?

My favourite book is ‘Pathfinder’ by David Blakeley

Why is this your favourite book?

It depicts the the story of special forces team that ventured behind enemy lines. A very interesting book and a true take of courage.

Would you recommend this book? If so, to whom and why?

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading books based upon true stories, I also think it would be a great book for anyone interested in a career in public services.
