Alex Rider (Graphic Novel Series) – Anthony Horowitz

‘If you’re like me and don’t really like reading books and you have to have a really good and interesting book to sit there and read on and on and not get bored, then you need to try ALEX RIDER! I am currently on book 5 and every book has been breath taking, edge of seat stuff so what are you waiting for!’

Unlocking the Universe by Stephen and Lucy Hawking

‘I loved reading this book which teaches you the basics of space, physics and time travel. If you’re a space lover (like me) this book is just the best for you!’

                                                                        Victoria – Year 11 (November 2022)



Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver

‘I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and the amount of detailed world building to be found in it, enlightens the reader to the research Paver put in her book. A middle-grade child’s book, Wolf Brother, follows the story of Torak and a wolf cub, Wolf as they fight for survival. Fast-paced with excellent prose and foreshadowing, I recommend this book for adventurers who want to escape.’

The Curse of the Ravens by Rebecca Lisle

‘The book was really fun to read. My favourite part of the book was chapter 4 to chapter 6 and I think myself, the others did a very good job of it…overall its really fun to read.’

                                                                                                Sienna – Year 7 (November 2022)


Shadowhunters – City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

‘The book is an enormously interesting on e and is full of plots twists which are never expected. The book is incredible, I would highly recommend.’

                                                                                                                Niamh – Year 10 (November 2022)


What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell

‘Filled with unexpected plot twists that will take your breath away.  Ever so intriguing once you begin reading.’
