Bundles of Book Lists

Did you know the Library has lots of book lists that we’ve made especially for you? There’s nearly 50 lists of books that we’ve chosen from our catalogue about different subjects. So if you like spy stories, animal stories or ghost stories, you can find some good reads on here. As well as HEAPS of others.

We’ve also got a whole lot of “If you like…” lists. These are lists that tell you some more good books to read if you like a particular series or author. Some of our lists are Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Jacqueline Wilson and Geronimo Stilton. Check out our lists to see if we’ve got some good suggestions for your favourite book or author.

If you’re looking for suggestions for the Science Alive Reading Adventure challenge of the Summertime Reading Club, we’ve made some lists for that too! Check out ALL of our kids lists on our Catalogue.
