World Book Day 2020

English and Creative Writing - World Book Day.jpg

We’re celebrating World Book Day at USW! So, we caught up with some of our English and Creative Writing students to find out which is their favourite book and why.


Zheelana Cottam

“Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy is a whirlwind fantasy that got me through tough times. Anything can happen, which is why it’s my favourite book.”


Georgia Bolton

“Harry Potter gives a reader a whole world of magic and wonder. It’s a story that never gets old, and my love for all seven is completely equal.”


Ellie-Rose Baker

“I Am, I Am, I Am by Maggie O’Farrell is filled with vivid descriptions and harrowing real-life stories which makes this book a fascinating, un-put-down-able read.”


Breeyn Reeves

“The Fellowship of the Ring by Tolkein is my favourite book as it’s serious yet has a comedic plotline. The characters shout to me and become real. I’m also absorbed into Middle Earth!”


Jasmyne Jeffery

“A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess is my favourite book as it has a really interesting point of view that I have never seen or read before.”
