Don’t know what to read? Try our book lists

CoverI never seem to run out of things to read.  There are always new books coming out and sometimes I stumble over an old book that I didn’t even know about.  Sometimes though, you just don’t know what you feel like reading.  Do you want a book with lots of action, or a book that’s more about the characters and the things that they go through?  Do you want something set in the future or way back in the past? 

That’s where our library book lists come in handy. 

  • Our Pageturners book list has just been updated and is chock-full of books that you won’t want to put down. 
  • Do you want to read the book before you see the movie?  Try our Read the book – then see the film book list.
  • Do you want to find more books like Geronimo Stilton, Harry Potter or Saddle Club?  Try our If You Like… book lists.
