The Bookette has been very quiet in February and March. There has been a lot in the calendar at work - Book Week, trips, a special History project, Open Day and Taster Visits.
I can't promise normal service is about to resume but I am going to try to post once a week. So I thought I'd start with the termly figures of which books are topping the school library chart!
#1 being the most popular book in my school library since January
Boys 8 - 12
- Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney (the whole series... again)
- The Donut Diaries as told by Dermot Milligan
- The Gladiators from Capua (The Roman Mysteries #8) by Caroline Lawrence
- Big Nate Out Loud by Lincoln Peirce
- The Ghost of Grania O'Malley by Michael Morpurgo
- The Kick Off by Dan Freedman
- Mr Stink by David Walliams
- Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz
- The Brilliant World of Tom Gates by Liz Pichon
- Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan
- Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney (the whole series... someone tell me what's so good about it?!)
- Pop Star (Dork Diaries #3) by Rachel Renee Russell
- The Brownies Series by Caroline Plaisted
- A Year Without Autumn by Liz Kessler
- Best Friends by Jacqueline Wilson
- The Diamond Girls by Jacqueline Wilson
- Winter Term at Malory Towers by Enid Blyton
- The Worst Thing about My Sister by Jacqueline Wilson

The girls on the other hand are huge fans of Jacqueline Wilson and are more likely to read standalone novels. They have been asking for adventure stories like "Famous Five" but more "modern". Suggestions if you have them please.
For those with an interest in picture books - some of the boys have been asking for "scary books". Our topics next term are "the Seaside" and "minibeasts" so it is always good to have stories exploring those themes.
