A great website that I’ve found out about recently is Shmoop which is directed at English & Literature students. The website contains lots of different information about literature and poetry written by PH.D and Masters students in the US. Many of the texts currently taught at Salesian can be found on the website, including Macbeth, The Outsiders and more. This is a great resource for students and I highly recommend it.

Harry Potter & the half-blood prince trailer

Posted by SalesianLibrary on June 22, 2009

It’s not long now until the next Harry Potter film comes out at the movies. July 15 to be exact. I’m looking forward to seeing this one as the movies seem to be getting better and better as they get released. You can check out the Harry Potter Trailer at  TrailerSpy which is a great source of all types of trailers, not just for movies.

Evernight Review

Posted by SalesianLibrary on June 21, 2009

evernightSixteen-year-old Bianca is dreading her first day at Evernight Academy, where her parents have taken teaching positions. Then she meets handsome outsider Lucas, for whom she falls with quick intensity. Everyone at Evernight has secrets, even Bianca, and as her romance deepens, she risks revealing the otherworld identity of Evernight’s glamorous population, even as she wonders if Lucas, too, is hiding something.

I enjoyed Evernight and look forward to reading the next in the series ‘Stargazer’. It’s great if you’re looking for something to read after you’ve finished the Twilight series, but the only thing they have in common is vampires and romance. If you’re looking for those factors then I’d definitely recommend Evernight for you.

Winter is upon us

Posted by SalesianLibrary on June 10, 2009

Well, we can’t deny it any longer. Winter has arrived and the cold weather has kicked in already. I hate to see what it will be like in the middle of winter when the weather is this cold already. So to go with the wintery weather I’ve changed the layout of this blog to a wintery blue colour. I hope you guys like it.

And what else is better to do in winter than to curl up in front of the fire or under a doona with a great book & some coffee or hot chocolate? The Library just got in a whole heap of new books for you to check out and there’s plenty of great books on our shelves too. The following are just a few different books the Library has to offer.

Vampire series

Posted by SalesianLibrary on June 10, 2009

Those of you who are Twilight and vampire story fans may like a couple of new series that we’ve just got in in the library. These are Vampire Academy, Evernight and House of Night. I know I’m planning on reading them, so hopefully you’ll see some reviews on here in the future.

New books

Posted by SalesianLibrary on June 10, 2009

We’ve just got a couple of books into the library that I would say are amongst my favourite books! These are Marley and Me by John Grogan and The Pact by Jodi Picoult.

You may have seen the movie of Marley and Me, but definitely give the book a go as well, because it’s just as good, maybe even better than the movie. There’s much more stories of the mischief Marley gets up to.

New Moon Posters….take 2

Posted by SalesianLibrary on June 2, 2009

I’ve found a couple more New Moon Posters for your viewing! These are really good too, I think the first one could be an official poster and the second fan made, but don’t quote me on that.

You can find links to both of these posters and others through the IMDB posters section.

New Moon Trailer

Posted by SalesianLibrary on June 2, 2009

I’m not sure whether this will work here, because it’s a YouTube video but it’s worth a shot. Yesterday at the MTV awards the trailer for New Moon was released! Looks pretty good.
