Mrs R’s Recommended Read

Stuck in a reading rut? Not sure what to read next? Try this!

Inspired by a few of the conversations we had with our Year 7s and their families last night at Parents’ Evening, here is a great read for someone in Year 7 or 8 looking for their next book/series.

A great read if you enjoyed Harry Potter, The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings and/or The Chronicles of Narnia.

His Dark Materials (Northern Lights) – Philip Pullman

Lyra Belacqua lives half-wild and carefree among the scholars of Jordan College, with her daemon, Pantalaimon, always by her side.

But the arrival of her fearsome uncle, Lord Asriel, draws her to the heart of a terrible struggle - a struggle born of stolen children, witch clans and armoured bears.

As she hurtles towards danger in the cold far North, Lyra never suspects the shocking truth: she alone is destined to win, or to lose, the biggest battle imaginable.
