The literary/library/book-selling world abounds with lists. What you should read during the summer, what you should read on a road trip, what you should read before you die, what you should read in the event of a zombie apocalypse. (I thought I was being funny with the zombies, but it turns out someone has written a list for that. No, really.)
So we here at the AHL decided to make a list of each of our ‘Top 5 books to read before you leave school’. Books on this list are well-written and enjoyable, but they also offer a little something extra. Call it what you will – wisdom, life-lessons, a unique perspective. Sometimes you just can’t pinpoint what it is about a book, you just know everyone else must read it too.
First up is Miss Mileto’s Top 5 books to read before you leave school. Watch this space, and get reading!
- Harry Potter series
- The night circus
- Alice in Wonderland
- Perfume : the story of a murderer
If you want to know more about a particular book, or why Miss Mileto chose it, just ask! She will be happy to tell you.
