Star Wars: Before the Awakening by Greg Rucka
This book is about three Star Wars characters from the force awakens and how they try to survive. The characters are Rey, Poe and Finn.
I would recommend this book to any Star Wars fans. This is a good book to read. You canbuy it from most bookshops.
Northern Lights By Philip Pullman
This book is about a girl, Lyra and her friend Roger. He disappears, which means Lyra and her daemon, Pantalaimon, need to go on a quest to find their missing friend, Roger.
Lyra has to overcome her fears of strange terrors, including Armoured Bears and Witch-Queens.
My favourite character was Lyra, as she was kind, helpful and not selfish.
Although this book, at times, can be scary, I would not change this book. I really enjoyed reading this and there was even a bit of humour from Lyra’s Daemon.
The moral of this story is to always be helpful, especially with your friends
I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. If you are ready for the biggest quest of your life, then join Lyra and her friends, overcome fears and attempt to rescue Roger.

Saxby Smart Schoolboy Detective; The Poisoned Arrow By Simon Cheshire
Although there are chapters in this story, it is separated into three different sections: 1.The Poisoned Arrow, 2.The nightmare of room 9B and 3.The Final Problem.
- The poisoned arrow is about a gang of thieves stealing form an audience, whilst a class are performing, Saxby comes in to save the day!
- The nightmare of room 9B has a mystery of stolen laptops and Saxby needs to save them.
- The Final Problem tells us of a quiz for different schools. However one of the teams are cheating and Saxby has to stop them!
Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this book as I found it difficult to follow the different stories, and had to flick back every 10 minutes to remember what had happened previously.
However, I would recommend this book if you enjoy solving problems and light hearted reads.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows By J.K Rowling
This is the seventh and final book in the series of Harry Potter books. The one, who shall not be mentioned, is back with vengeance and commits himself to incredibly protective measures.
In the lead up to this, Harry, Ron and Hermione work together, proving the strength of their friendship, to defeat Lord Voldermort’s horcrux to enable them to get close enough to battle the Lord himself!
The words and descriptions in the book, make you feel like you are there, you can picture each and every scene.
I would highly recommend this book to all in Key Stage 2. Maybe you can envision a different great hall battle to me!

Courage to Ride By Bernadette Kelly
This is a book about a girl, Annie, and her horse. She has to venture to new places and even attempt horse riding for the first time. She was worried others wouldn’t like her, and would bully her. She tried her best in every situation and showed her courage throughout.
The moral of this story is to always persevere in hard situations even when scared and confused, as you will never know the outcome until you try.
I would recommend this book to everyone, if you enjoy adventure, suspense and a good read, then you must chose this book next!
