My daughter is after a new series to read but is struggling to find something - any suggestions?

What were the last 3 books she read that she really liked?
Posted 21 February 2020 - 08:25 PM
She's just finished a New City which is the book that came after grimsdon and she liked that. I think there is a third one in that series so she's going to try that too.
I think she'd quite like the tomorrow when the war began series but I'm trying to remember how old I was when I first got into it... I think I might have been a bit older. she's in year 6 but she's pretty mature for her age. but that might be better to wait til year 7 or 8 perhaps?

Warriors series by Erin Hunter

Maybe showing my age but know they're still around in hard copy/ google books I adored the babysitters club (ok I am embarrassingly admitting I still read these from time to time and totally get the nostalgia factor is there for me that wouldn't be there for a younger reader)

Nythung by Emily Rodda
Percy Jackson series
EJ the spy (the older kid’s version).
do you have a library near you? My kids often find book series there they like the look of. Or it is related to their sports, hobbies etc. Non fiction can be enjoyable too.

She wasn't into babysitters club sadly which is a shame as I had so many. Then again she might enjoy them if she tried now she's a bit older...
Thanks heaps for the suggestions. She's asked to go to the library tomorrow so we've got a few ideas now to get started with

His series (3?) aimed at teen girls would be good. Wintersmith, A Hatful of Sky and the Shepherds Crown.
Also ANY Discworld book!
I read "Beauty" and "Spindle's End" by Robin Mckinley at around the same age, still love them. Retellings of fairy tales.

ooh yes!!! I'm sure I've got some books somewhere, I might go to mum's and see if they're still boxed up at her place.

My dd loved Wings of Fire and the Spirit Animals series.

Another vote for Ruby Redfort. Around 10 books in the series, so would keep her busy if she likes them.
Land of Stories series by Chris Colfer.
Hunger Games - my kids read at 11, but may not be suitable for all.

My DD11 is starting to read some Steven King. She cried during Hearts in Atlantis and thought Cujo was silly.

My 10yr old is currently reading and enjoying The Chronicles of Narnia. She also enjoyed Anne of Green Gables too, my old book I found in the shed!
