As the title says really!
Can be books to read independently or as a family.
We've read Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Mr Gum, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, The Worst Witch, to name a few series. We've covered a lot of manga/graphic novels. Any recommendations would be appreciated! Any genre, any 'target audience' (not bothered if it's a 'boys book' or 'girls book'), picture books or novels.
