The library has stocked a large number of new books from award-winning to best-sellers and most popular on Goodreads and LibraryThing and it is a good idea to reserve one of these if you want to read them as they are usually out. Yet the most popular in 2015 are not new.
- Paul Jenning‘s “Uncanny” and “Don’t look now” are both in the top 20 as they are great humorous stories.
- The Last Thirteen series is next. It is a fast-paced thriller with short chapters.
- Popular as ever Jacqueline Wilson‘s books in particular “Lily alone” and “Queenie”
- 5 books of the Robert Muchamore Cherub series are in the top twenty. There are 46 books by this author in the library and usually very few on the shelves… Ask the librarian to reserve the book you need.
- Night Vision is 5th and has a long reserve list. So if you are having one of the 3 copies, please read it fast and return it promptly!
- Tom Gates has rocketed up the list, now in 6th Position. It’s funny, it’s easy, go for it!
- Bear Grylls adventures (with real survival details!) are riding up.
- Brilliant, the 3rd in Rachel Vail series, great for girls year 9 – 10 as other books by Sarah Dessen, Ann Brashares or Louise Rennison.
- Where she went, by Gayle Forman is successful in the wake of the film as other books (and films) by John Green (The Fault in our Stars) or Lauren Oliver (Panic).
- And twentieth on our most popular list this year is War Horse by hugely popular author Michael Morpurgo, one of the many novels about World War One.
