Priory’s Head of English, Mrs Gidden, has been really impressed with many of our multi-talented pupils lately and wanted to highlight their love of reading while excelling at other pursuits. This week we interviewed Year 7 pupil, Millie.

Millie has some serious reading to do as she is determined to get through the Skulduggery Pleasant series after being introduced to them by her friend.

Daniel is a keen reader and loves the Derek Landy series of books and he told Millie all about them.

“I started them and am now on the third one – The Faceless Ones. Daniel has been reading them and he told me to start them and now I am hooked.

“There is a 12th one out soon so I have a lot of reading to do.

“They are about Stephanie whose uncle is assassinated and she has the help of the Skulduggery Pleasant skeleton to fight the bad guys and save the world.  I can relate to Stephanie so that helps my enjoyment of them.

“I have got books one-nine so I am waiting to buy the others! Derek Landy is my favourite author.”

When not reading, Millie enjoys computer games but also admits she does ‘a lot of visiting.’

“I visit my nana and grandma and enjoy going to see them at night. I usually only read at school but I am determined to finish this series.”
