Year 9 Recommended Reads

‘Reading is a conversation. All books talk. But a good book listens as well’.

Mark Haddon

Reading for just 20-30 minutes everyday helps to improve your knowledge and understanding of the world around you, your confidence, and your reading and writing skills. It also helps to you to relax and exercise your imagination; reading can show you a different world – a place you’ve never been before!

We really hope you enjoy flicking through our ‘Reading Passport’ for Year 9 below. Recommendations are grouped by genre and include a number of personal favourites from staff. Don’t forget to collect learner merits by ticking off each title once read (and to add these to the ’20 in 2020 Challenge’). Hardcopies are available from the LRC or your English teacher to help you keep track too.
