The Bookette's Guide To... Popular Books this Term

It's that time again. The end of term. The end of the school year. Whoop! So before I spend the next seven weeks relaxing, here are the fiction books that topped the charts in my school library this term:

I'm so pleased to see Guy Bass feature in the boys' reading choices. We had a fantastic author performance from him in February and it has had a direct impact on the boys. Wonderful. 

And look at The Hobbit - shows how influential movies can be. 

It's nice to see some of the girls enjoying fantasy novels again too.
