Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling - Harry's choice

"Every time I read a part I'm always begging my Mum or Dad to read more."










Scarlet & Ivy by Sophie Cleverly - Brooke's choice

"It's like a murder mystery. It makes you want to read more every night!"










Arabian Nights by N.J. Dawood - Orson's choice

"There's some classic stories that everyone knows like Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves. It involves the phrase 'Open Sesame' for the first ever time. And 'Aladdin and the Golden Lamp'."










Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling - Nina's choice

"My favourite character is Hermione Granger."










The Famous Five: Five Go Off in a Caravan by Enid Blyton - Emily's choice

"This is my favourite Famous Five book because it's so adventurous."










Pokemon: Super Deluxe Essential Handbook - Magnus' choice

"It's very informative!"










Mr. Stink by David Walliams - Saraya's choice

"I like it because it's really funny."










Death in the Spotlight by Robin Stevens - Hollye's choice

"It's all about murder and stuff and you keep trying to guess who it is. It has a major plot twist at the end!"



AGE 12-18s











World War Z by Max Brooks - Francisco's choice

"I recommend this if you like zombies because it's cool!"










The World's Worst Teachers by David Walliams - Dylan's choice

"It's very, very funny because it's David Walliams!"










The Falcon's Malteser by Anthony Horowitz - Theo's choice

"It's a detective book, read it a few years back."










A Good Girl's Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson - Lily-Rose's choice

"It's like a murder detective story. There's a murder case and a girl studies the murder for a project. It's really good, I couldn't sleep when I was reading it. It's quite scary. It's really realistic."










A Stainless Steel Rat is Born by Harry Harrison - Elizabeth's choice

"It's part of a series. The series goes through the main character from 16 to older. It's also a comic as well."










Star Wars Aftermath by Chuck Wendig - Charlie's choice

"It's like an official Star Wars book, it fills in the gap between Episode IV and V."











Mr. Nobody's Eyes by Michael Morpurgo - Alexander's choice

"It's pretty good. It's set in WWII and about a boy who meets a guy who works in a circus who has a chimpanzee. But then the chimpanzee runs away and finds the boy, but he has to keep it secret because his Dad's abusive."










The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - Beth's choice

"It's really good. It's about this little girl in Nazi Germany who is taken in by this family. The book is written from the point of view of Death, which is really interesting. It's really not something that you have read before, it portrays Death as a person."










Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan - Struan's choice

"Also the sequel series and the spin-off series. Film adaptation is trash, never been to be mentioned and is disgraceful."










Teen Titans: Beast Boy by Kami Garcia, Gabriel Picolo - Anna's choice

"She's rewriting the whole Teen Titans series as an origin story. These are sort of add-ons and I really do recommend these even if you are a Marvel fan."


Teachers











Watchmen by Alan Moore - Stewart's choice

"This is really good, a big, thick graphic novel. Also made into a film but the book is even better. It's like a detective style novel with superheroes."












The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson - Kim's choice

"This is a really funny book. It's written by a Swedish author and it's basically this old man escapes his nursing home and has adventures."
