Trends – Northumberland Regional High School

Welcome back, everyone! There are only two weeks left to nominate your favourite book, so make sure you submit a ballot by the end of the day Friday, January 13.

Students at Northumberland Regional High School (grades 9-12) have nominated a total of 46 titles. According to Ms. Nielsen, the current leader with 10 nominations is (not surprisingly): The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

Here are a couple of short-but-sweet reasons why NRHS students love The Hunger Games:
  • Constant suspense!
  • Full of action!

Only four books received more than one nomination, and they are all tied for second place with two nominations each. There appear to be some shared reading interests among students at both NRHS and South Colchester Academy, as two of the following books were also nominated by students at SCA. Second place includes the following books:

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

Belly has spent every summer at the beach hoping Conrad and Jeremiah would notice her. During her sixteenth year, things finally change – but not like Belly had hoped.

Reason for nomination:

It’s Great! Romance, sad and funny.
Looking for Alaska by John Green

Sixteen-year-old Miles starts boarding school in Arizona, where he becomes friends with a group brilliant and prank-loving misfits. When tragedy strikes, Miles seeks answers about life and death.

Reason for nomination:

It’s just awesome!
A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin

Reason for nomination:

Intricate storyline, spectacular imagery.
 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling

Any thoughts on the nominated book at NRHS?
