Don't forget to add your name to the comments you're making so I know who's been on. Loving the discussion so far! Keep up the awesome effort :-)
Don't forget to be critical thinkers. Don't just say that you loved the book and it's the best book ever, etc. You need to go deeper in your thinking. Why is it the best book you've ever read? What does the author do that captures your attention?
Think about what YOU do as a writer - Audience Awareness and Purpose, Content and Ideas, Structure, Language Resources - all those fantastic areas of writing you think about when YOU are the authors and you are exactly that!! When you write - YOU are the author, so get that critical thinking going my fabulous learners.
