Money: The Life and the Fast Times of Floyd Mayweather by Tris Dixon 14+


I like this book because it shows me how life can be and that if you work hard you will achieve anything. Mayweather's father was locked up when he was very young, so his mother didn't have much money to feed him and his siblings. So he didn't have an easy life as a child. However now he is one of the richest athletes and he has holds the record for no defeats (even though he has had 50 fights). I would recommend this book to people who need some motivation to see that anything is possible.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky 14+


This is my favourite book at the moment because of the way Chbosky writes, the main character's uses are very real and it touches on topics which aren't usually talked about. I think Charlie is very relatable in some ways and I enjoy how it is from his perspective only. The fake names, and the person he is writing to add an element of mystery, which is good too.

Definitely recommend.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night time 13+

This book is absolutely phenomenal in my opinion, it really lets you delve deep into someone else's life and thoughts- this book particularly portrays someone who is on the autistic spectrum. I think this helps people to have an insight into people's minds that aren't like their own. Either way it is a very moving book that was so fantastic I couldn't put it down until I had finished it.

This book fits into the murder mystery type genre and unlike most books that are about mysterious human murders, this one involves the murder of a dog. One thing that makes this book special

After the Fire by Will Hill 14+


This book was amazing! It wasn't a normal kind of book, it touched on something that I have never thought about for a book, religion. At first it was confusing but I quickly understood. I really like how It was switching between time (before and after). All the characters were very imaginable and you can quickly form a picture of them, you can also quickly form opinions too. It had a really good a story line and a good ending because you felt scared but you were safe.

Definitely recommend.

Noughts and Crosses- Malorie Blackman 11+, 13+

This book is about the Noughts and Crosses, who hate each other, apart from Callum and Sophie, who go some tough times and twists but stay together through the whole time. I would highly recommend if you like some twists in a plot line.

Love Song by Sophia Bennett


This book is an emotional page turner, and it gripped me until the end. It is a wonderful book that inspires you to never give up on your dreams, no matter how ridiculous they may seem. I enjoyed reading Love Song because the characters were interesting and relatable. Furthermore, the plot line was very predictable, so I hope there is a sequel.
