The Bookette's Guide to... Popular Books This Term

Here are the fiction books that topped the charts in my school library this term:

#1 being the most popular book in my school library since January 2013

Boys 8 - 12

  1. Diary of a Wimpy Kid (the whole series)
  2. Scream Street by Tommy Donbavand (the whole series)
  3. Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce (the whole series)
  4. Atomic: The Madness of Madame Malice by Guy Bass
  5. Atomic: The Vegeance of Vinister Vile by Guy Bass
  6. Monster Madness by Guy Bass
  7. Ratburger by david Walliams
  8. Tom Gates by Liz Pichon (the whole series)
  9. Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey (the whole series)
  10. Gangsta Granny by David Walliams
The good news is that the Wimpy Kid books aren't being borrowed as much as they were. They've all read the new one and now they are trying other things. Interesting that Guy Bass features three times. I organised for him to do an author performance in February and the pupils loved it!

Girls 8 - 12
  1. Ratburger by David Walliams
  2. Amazing Esme and the Sweetshop Circus
  3. Four Children and It by Jacqueline Wilson
  4. Gangsta Granny by David Walliams
  5. Emerald Star by Jacqueline Wilson
  6. A Medal for Leroy by Michael Morpurgo
  7. Ottoline Goes to School by Chris Riddell
  8. Secret Santa: Agent of Xmas by Guy Bass
  9. Who Could That Be At This Hour? by Lemony Snicket
  10. Tom Gates by Liz Pichon (the whole series)
What a great mix - mysteries, realism, comedy. Fantastic! I want to read the new Lemony Snicket book myself but it's never in stock...

I love that there's a series that features on both the boy's and girl's lists.
