1. A Rag, a Bone and a Hank of Hair by Nicholas Fisk I remember my teacher in year six reading this story to us, but we never finished it. I’m desperate to find out what happens.
2. A Necklace of Raindrops by Joan Aiken and Jan Pienkowski This is a book from my childhood. It was absolutely my favourite book ever, but I’ve never been able to find it since I left school
3. How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff I’ve heard good things about this book, so I’d like to read it
4. Happy After Ever by Adele Geras I read this book a few years ago, and it began my longing to live romantically in Paris for a summer.
5. Troy by Adele Geras I loved Happy After Ever and would love to read Troy, especially as I’ve heard such great things about it
6. Amsterdam by Ian McEwan In my English class we are studying Enduring Love by the same author and we read extracts from some of his other books. Amsterdam just sounded like an interesting book to read
7. The Child in Time by Ian McEwan Once again, sounds good.
8. The Cement Garden by Ian McEwan Interesting.
9. Black Dogs by Ian McEwan Also would like to read
10. My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult I think it’s a really fascinating story and I’d love to read it.
11. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov I’m curious about this book.
12. Bridget Jones’ Diary by Helen Fielding I love the film, so I think it’s only right that I read the book.
13. The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger It seems like such an iteresting book to read!
14. The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne The film looks really good, but I want to read the book before I see the film.
15. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon I’ve heard such good things about this book but I’ve never read it. It’s about time that I did.
