I was sitting the other day thinking about ways in which my kids and I could share our love of books… and someone said, “Miss, I bet you can’t do an A-Z of book recommendations!” so here I am, taking on his challenge. I’ve set them a 2 week challenge to complete it, but here I am trying to do it all in one go.
If I manage this, I’ll try and do a YA version and a picture book version, but please please don’t hold me to that haha! I’m not going to include graphic novels in this – I’ll do a separate one for those if I succeed too!
BEFORE I START… I would just like to say the amount of books that begin ‘The…’ made this really hard for me (so honestly… I might’ve cheated, haha).

Are any of you brave enough to take on the A-Z of recommendations?
Obviously this isn’t an exhaustive list of books I’d recommend, they’re just a range of recommendations. Ask me to do this list again and trust me 80% of it would be different haha!
If you’d like a graphic novel, picture book or YA version, let me know… I quite enjoyed challenging myself to do this!
