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!


  1. Harry Potter series
    J.K. Rowling
  2. The night circus
    Erin Morgenstern
  3. Alice in Wonderland
    Lewis Carroll
  4. Jaws
    Peter Benchley
  5. Perfume : the story of a murderer
    Patrick Suskind


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.
