Half Term Reads For The Kids

This is a collaborative post

With half term on the horizon, this feels like a good time to stock up on a few books, doesn’t it? Any excuse for me, absolutely any excuse!

Joking aside, I do like to ensure that the kids have plenty to read when school holidays roll around as we do like to have that downtime when we grab our books and settle down together.

This means I’m working with Books2Door again this month, and the kids have enjoyed choosing themselves some half term reads.

The children spent some time looking through the huge selection of books available on the Books2Door website and then made their own choices.

It’s quite easy to navigate through each section and narrow options down, so they both managed to find books they were interested in quickly.

My son has chosen the Night World series by LJ Smith and he’s excited to read them.

They’re vampire books and he’s a big fan of Twilight so it’ll be interesting to see what he makes of these. I have no doubt his sister will read them too, so she’s done very well out of this book haul.

My daughter reads a lot and she reads quickly. It’s hard to keep up with supplying her! She often brings books home from the school library, has her own huge range of books and she borrows from my shelves too. And, like me, she always has her eye on other books she’d like to read so she chose these two box sets easily.

She had seen The Inheritance Games series by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, both in bookshops and on TikTok, and knew they’d be right up her street. She’s already flying through these books as I write this. 

She then chose E Lockhart’s We Were Liars collection as she’s seen  a few of these books before and was keen to try them. 

These are standalone books so she can dip in and read them as she wants to.

That’s a fair few new books for them there, I’m hoping it keeps them busy over half term, but they have got their hands on them now, so they could be all finished up soon!

As I’ve mentioned before, Books2Door have also got a delivery service which is well worth a look if you’re like us and are often buying books. 

They offer a PLUS+ delivery service, with both Silver and Gold membership options.

As much as I love to see my kids read, and I really do, I also love to see them choosing new books. I like to see what they gravitate towards, the books that interest them and the ones that they get excited about getting. It’s fun seeing them browse around Books2Door and make their selections, I just hope they enjoy their books now. 

What books are your kids loving at the moment?
