Reading inspiration (Hatchlings)

Post by Cerise »

J needs more reading material. He’s read Percy Jackson and all related things, Artemis Fowl, His Dark Materials, Alex Rider and all that kind of stuff. He’s tried some Terry Prachett but wasn’t keen. He’s almost 12. Any suggestions please? The libraries reopen soon but I’m reluctant to go.

How about Charlie Higsons Young Bond series?

A has read all of the above and also enjoyed the Mortal Engines books by Philip Reeves. She also likes James Dashner (Maze Runner and 13th Reality). Also The Hunger Games books.

The libraries summer reading challenge has a brilliant book recommendation tool which might be useful.

Hannah absolutely loves the Skulduggery Pleasant series. That might be worth a look?

Have you tried Gemini Force

I read the first book and thought it was really creative

J is really into Malorie Blackman, Michael Morpurgo and Onjali Q Rauf at the moment.

This is really helpful, thank you. He’s read some of the suggestions but I’ll look up some of the others.

Oh, a BLM thing that was sent to us all at work. A virtual library. Can I attach a PDF?

ETA I've worked it out, but the file size is 4.5 mg. Maybe i can sent it by private message if anyone wants to have a look?
You have lived life thus far, tell me how you have done it?
