Girl Online By Zoe Sugg AKA Zoella

Rating: *****

Age: 12+

Finnaly something that I can say is at least for older readers I have put this book as 12+ because of some mild swears but it is still an incredible book! I love the story line. A teenager who is almost writing her diary (annomous) online you see this side of her as well as her real life experiences through her love life and every second  of this is captured in her blog. What will she do if someone finds out the trut?

Girlfriends: Boys Will Be Boys By Jean Ure

Rating:***

Age: 8+

Again with the easy reading, I found this book on my kindle and thought I would try it again. As you can see from the rating, I didn’t really like this book. It was funny in places but not enough to make me laugh out loud. It did have a good story line and maybe other books in this series (there is a LOT) are better, however I do not desperately recommend this book!

Queenie By Jacqueline Wilson

Rating:****

Age: 8+

Okay look I know I have done way to many Jacqueline Wilson books but I am low on books so I have been doing a LOT of easy rereading (for example my normal books are 9, 10 , or 11+)   the problem is I have written most of these up before. Not this one! I really enjoyed this touching story about how the main character loses her nan to an illness has to stay with her mum then ends up with the same illness in her bones and after a long hospital rest (and many visits from the beautiful hospital cat “Queenie” and once the real Queen) she finally gets better. This story is really touching and moving

Ps sorry for the long review today!

Tom’s midnight garden by Philippa Pearce

Ages: 8+

Ratings: *****

This book was amazing and I couldn’t put it down! In the story Tom gets sent away to his aunt and uncle’s house to stay the summer leaving behind his family, as his younger brother has got measles. At first Tom thought it was unfair, however later on, when Tom found the garden, he tried to and delay his trip home as he found a new friend.

Olivia has also written a review on this so before you read check out her opinion too.

 

Anne of Green Gables By L.M. Montgomery

Ratings: *****

Ages: 9+

This book is amazing and is great to get stuck into because it is the first book in a series of 12 so they will last you ages! I strongly recommend it to any one interested in old classics. (Just because they are old doesn’t mean they aren’t good!)  Any way as I said before this  book is amazing!

Heap house by Edward Carey

A great book that I thoroughly enjoyed, the more I read, the quicker I read, it was amazing. I read it faster than ever so now I am stuck for what to read while I wait for the second book of this series to come out. I love this book and recommend it lots.

War Horse By Michael Morpurgo

Ratings:*****
Ages: 8+
War horse is a lovely tale of friendship and sadness that had me crying, that doesn’t mean it is a bad story in fact it is one of my favourites it is a perfect modern day classic. Joey keeps on going with bullets hitting riders from his back. A tale from both sides of the trenches through WWI.

Un Lun Dun is a action book that has you hooked from the first page even though you do not know why. It has characters beyond comparison it can be the most inspiring book or just a great read. Either way I would recommend it.
