We had fun experimenting with Extreme Reading photos on holiday in Northumberland. Popular books in our family this summer have been:
“The Humans” by Matt Haig (very funny and moving story of an alien inhabiting a mathematican’s body. Everyone should read the alien’s advice for humans. Watch the book trailer here)
“The Outsiders” by S.E. Hinton (young adult classic written by a 17 year old girl in 1967)
“The Tomorrow Series” by John Marsden
“Itch Rocks” by Simon Mayo (sequel to “Itch” – more adventures of an element hunter)
“Game of Thrones” by George R.R. Martin
“Flip” by Martyn Bedford (the author who wrote “A capsule in Time” for Wellington)
“The Raven Boys” by Maggie Stiefvater
“Rubicon” by Tom Holland (gripping story of the rise of Julius Caesar)
“Where’d you go, Bernadette” by Maria Semple (extremely funny novel, set in Seattle with plenty of Microsoft and Antarctica references!)
“Gone” by Michael Grant
“The Death of Grass” by John Cristopher (mixture of science-fiction and psychological thriller written in 1956 but still a chilling post-apocalyptic novel)
