Books That I Would Recommend

I am writing a post on books that I would recommend.

The first is “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens, which is a book about Christmas and a man called Scrooge.   Scrooge is visited by the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Future.

“The Famous Five” by Enid Blyton, which is a series of books about four children and a dog.  The children’s names are Julian, Dick, Anne, and George.  The dog’s name is Timmy, short for Timothy.  They all go on a series of adventures and mysteries

“The Five Find-Outers” by Enid Blyton, which is a series of books where they find hidden items and thieves.  Their names are Fatty, which is short for Fredrick, Pip, Bets, Larry and Daisy.  Together they do what I have mentioned earlier.

Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling, which is about a wizard called Harry Potter going to Hogworts School of Witch Craft and Wizardry.  He is in a series of changing dangers, but all of them have Voldemort planning his death but if all goes well.  He will defeat Voldemort, and then the wizards and the muggles  will be safe from being murdered by him and his followers.

A book about another land called Narnia is another of my favourites.  Narnia is a land where people from our world can only get into by magic so that at first.  There were only three people from our world knew about it, and they were called Polly, Diggery and Diggery’s uncle Andrew.  They were there at the beginning of that world.  Then in World War Two four children were sent away for their safety, and to keep them away from the war.  Lucy, the youngest of the four children, found the Land of Narnia by going into a wardrobe, but the others whose names were Peter, Susan and Edmund didn’t believe Lucy.  Yet Lucy stuck to her story and in the end she proved them all wrong. Peter and Susan had three adventures in Narnia.  They were told by Aslan, the Great Lion that Peter and Susan could never return to Narnia, but Edmund and Lucy could return once more.  That time they brought someone else into Narnia called Eustuce Scrub.  The second time Eustuce went to Narnia he brought a girl called Jill Pole.  Jill and Eustace returned twice to Narnia.

“Septimus Heap” by Angie Sage is a book is about a person called Septimus Heap who goes on a series of adventures with Marcia Overstrand the ExtraOrdinary wizard and Princess Jenna Heap. In the first book they fight a dark necromancer. Called Dom Daniel the ex extra ordinary wizard so they have to fight him numerous times. So when in the fourth book called quest Dom Daniel’s apprentice Merrin Meridith snuck back.  He made friends with a bad ghost called Tertius Fume and asked him to make Septimus go on the quest and never return. But it all failed and he did return.

The mysteries the names of the people in it are Diana, Roger, Snubby, Barney and Miss Pepper and in the holidays. They just seem to fall into adventures,  like the first one where they  were on  holidays  with their cousin Snuby and they met Barny.  Barny was working in a circus, and they had an  exciting adventure  in an old house in which they suspected their tutor.  The tutor was really a policeman,  but pretending   to be a tutor so that he could find out what was going on in the same old house that the  children were having their adventures in.


Sharing Is Caring


  1. I enjoyed reading which books you chose to mention. I was rather surprised that you didn’t mention The Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett, any of the L.M. Montgomery, Louisa May Alcott, or L. Frank Baum books.

  2. I love “the little Princess” and Harry Potter. But I never heard of Septimus Heap, so next time I’ll go to the library I’ll have a look on them.
    And if you like wizard stories, I can suggest you Diana Wynne Jones and her Chrestomanci series.

  4. It was good to learn a bit about the books I have not read. My favourites when I was young were the Famous Five books. Are you still reading the Fairy Books? I cleaned out my rags in the hallway cupboard a few weeks ago and found one of the Fairy Books. It must have been there for 2 years now. Did you hide it there so you could read it at a later time?

    I’m glad you have been able to read so much.
