Hello readers and welcome to my regular article. With World Book Day coming up on the 3rd of March I am going to be telling you about some of my favourite books that I have recently read. We are also including this month in celebration of World Book Day other books of interest for adults with competitions to win a copy of them and three I have selected from my list too. My books are aimed atTweens-Young adults, however I will list some books for younger readers that my cousins love too.
My recommendations
The Hetty Feather book series
The Hetty Feather book series is for tweens to mid teens and is a set of historical fiction books written by my favourite author, Jaqueline Wilson.
There are five books in the series so far and they are all set in the Victorian times. The story is about a young teen named Hetty or is she? She is sent to a foundling hospital (like an orphanage) and the books describe her time there and how she got there. They are very interesting and teach a lot about the Victorian era.
Girl Online and
Girl Online On Tour
I couldn't write this review without mentioning these 2. Both books are written by the very well- known YouTuber, Zoe Sugg (aka Zoella). The story is about a teenage girl who is rushed off to New York when she meets a boy.
The books follow their dramatic relationship and see if they can keep it together through shocking events. It is a very good chick lit type book for tweens to young adults.
Username Evie
Username Evie is a graphic novel by Joe Sugg (successful YouTuber and Zoe Suggs brother). The artwork in this book is amazing with a very good plot.
This book is sure to surprise people who might not usually read a graphic novel. I would reccomend the book for tweens to young adults. Boys would also enjoy this book.
For children aged between 6-10 the following books are all really enjoyable;
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
All Roald Dahl books are great but I particularly enjoyed this one when I was younger.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid
by Jeff Kinney
Really popular with boys, about a weakling boy who writes a diary, they are really funny!
Horrid Henry by Francesca Simon
These books are hilarious, all about a really naughty boy, they are popular with both girls and boys.
If you have a younger child age 5 and under, my cousins enjoy;
What the Ladybird Heard
by Julia Donaldson
A colourful book with a rhyming tale, and see if you can spot the ladybird on every page!
We're Going On A Bear Hunt
by Michael Rosen
A modern classic, with lovely illustrations and words that you can make actions.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
by Eric Carle
Watch the caterpillar munch its way through the book and see what happens…
All these books are widely available online and from all good book retailers. I hope you all enjoy World Book Day, I love getting lost in a good book!
