Six months and six books in to Book Club, the students were asked to choose which book had been their favourite read so far. Silent Patient proved to be a solid winner, with lots of crime fiction fans in this group. Students enjoyed the mystery, describing this read as ‘a real page turner’. Everyone had a lot of feedback and contributed to a good group discussion.
The boarding staff that run Book Club (Emma Finnerty, Houseparent and Lowri Carini, Boarding Assistant) pick a new genre and six new books every month. Students then cast a vote, and everyone reads the winner. The group gather once a month, pull up the sofas, grab their complementary hot drink from The Grumpy Mule (hot chocolate is usually the preference) and have an open discussion about their latest read.
