What's in this booklist?
This list contains around 260 titles young people from 11 to 18 will enjoy; most are completely different from the Boys into Books titles. They’re arranged by catchy one or two-word themes, which highlight genres and offer lots of display and promotional possibilities. There are plenty of up-to-the-minute titles, the very latest in some fiction series, several modern classics in new guises, and a few tried and tested favourites. The list specifically contains material both for boys and for girls; material for reluctant and struggling readers; material for students learning English as an additional language (EAL), and some titles to interest older students. The list can do little more than highlight the offerings available to these groups of readers. Do use the list as a springboard to the publishers’ wider and ever increasing collections. The main focus here is fiction - though non-fiction titles can be found amongst the list. You could add to the list your own choice of other material to tempt students into reading for pleasure, including things like puzzle books, magazines, comics, newspapers (including those for young people), DVDs, CDs and so on. We hope you enjoy looking through the list, and finding the very best titles to get everyone reading!
