I wanted to give my book reviews a club name, so I decided to name it after my polar bear, Berg. Polar Bears are my favourite animal, ever since Chris De Lacey’s book Ice Fire. The way he wrote them made me fall in love with these creatures because I felt there was a connection between us.
When I was 17, my dad bought me Berg, and now if I stay a night somewhere, Berg is with me. Riding in my rucksack. He comforts me when I am homesick and reminds me I am loved.
While he may seem like a normal teddy bear, he isn’t.
Berg loves playing with my archenemies, the snow; making snowballs and snow bears and he is mischievous while playing with his siblings (various species of teddies and dolls). His favourite thing to do is tease his slightly older brother, Fawkes. A phoenix that is no way as bright as the Fawkes in the Harry Potter books.
I think Berg’s friendly and playful personality makes him a brilliant mascot.
I mean, look at him. He definitely is an avid reader and prepared for all sorts of adventures.
I want to read more, whether through audio or kindle, so I am planning to post a book review every Wednesday starting next week…. here is hoping I can finish Fiona’s book, Glasdrum by then.
Berg and I hope to see you there. Feel free to post book review suggestions in the comments and have fun reading.
