Back To School, Here’s What We’re Reading

This is a collaborative post

We’re into the swing of being back to school now. The usual routines have kicked in again and the summer break is starting to feel like a dim and distant memory.

I’m working with Books2Door again this month, and September always feel like a great bookish month to me. OK, we all know that every month, every day in fact, is a good time for books to me, but back into the usual routines means refreshing our books, journals and more reading time. 

We’ve topped up the kids’ bookshelves and they’ve got an activity journal each too. 

There are so many books to choose from, it wasn’t easy narrowing down their choices to these few.

You can browse and shop by age, genre, author, price and discount to help you to narrow down your choices, and you will need to as there are so many books and boxsets available. 

My son loves books that make him laugh so Barry Loser and Big Nate are perfect choices for him.

My daughter’s read a couple of Barry Loser books before and says they’re fun so my son’s looking forward to trying them. He already loves Big Nate books

He’s also developed a love for Louis Sachar books over the summer.

They read Holes at school last term so we got him that and he’s had a few more since that he’s enjoyed, so we’ll keep on working our way through those with several available at Books2Door.

My daughter has been keen to read these Ana Huang books, she always has her eye on new books that she wants to read. BookTok can often be blamed!

She’s already flying through them, she’ll no doubt finish them this week. 

My girl reads a lot of books and she reads them quickly. Devours them!

Fortunately she’s now at an age where along with her own books she borrows from my shelves too. 

I have a lot of books so I’m happy I can keep her busy, she’s not going to run out of reading material any time soon.

Both of the kids have always got a book on the go, they read every evening and they both have plenty of books to choose from. 

I know I’ve said it before, but raising readers is really important to me. Not simply for them to be at an advantage academically, though reading does do that, more because a lifetime love of reading is a gift that I want them to have. 

I also love to journal and see the value in it, so they’ve also got a new Matthew Syed journal each to have fun with. 

They are full of life hacks, challenges and activities to boost confidence. It’s tricky being a growing child, so having a little fun whilst building confidence seems like a good way to get into the swing of back to school again.

I love to see my children reading, I like to chat about what they’re enjoying with them and I always have fun choosing new books with them.
