I am enjoying Jacky's books and Harry Potter at the moment

I would recommend the Boy who sailed the Ocean in an Armchair by Lara Williamson. It is epic and Lara Williamson has written loads of books so if you don't like this one there are plenty of others.📚

I am quite a fussy reader and find it hard to find a book that I really enjoy. Obviously Jacquline Wilson books are incredible, every one is so good!!! Here is a list of books I recommend:
- The whole Harry potter collection
- A room full of chocolate by Jane Elson
- Adolphus Tips by Michael Morpurgo
- All of the David Walliams books

I am in love with J.K Rowling`s Harry Potter series and fantastic Beasts And Where To find them is a absolutely amazing book and is now a really brilliant film.

Wonder by R J Palicio is amazing, it really moved me when I read it. Also, a very funny read is the Hundred mile an hour dog, by Jeremy Strong. Also another sad, moving book is War Horse by Michael Morpurgo, I liked it because its shows how good friendship can be. If you want to read something more interesting, read Little Women. Its quite old, and the words are quite tricky, but a good novel all the same. :)

Yeah, I really liked Wonder by R J Palicio, Queen Angel Jewel, I think its a sad but touching read. I hope they produce a movie out of it, as I would really like to see it acted out.
Please like, poppy sparkle sweetheart

I agree with Queen Angel Jewel (and others) that Wonder is the best book i ever read.
My fave JW book has to be Opal Plumsteqd or any of the Hetty Feather books

i would recommend a book called bad girls by in fact Jacqueline Wilson its about a girl called Mandy who is always anxious of these girls who bully her. Until she meets Tanya who totally changes her life,but maybe Tanya would get her into trouble...

Reading isn't my favorite thing but this book would get you into it

I really enjoyed reading Holes by Louis Sachar, as its really funny and a real page-turner!
Also please like this post. :);-)

I am an avid reader and I would like to recommend a few good books:
1. Wonder by R.J.Palacio
Its a book about a ten-year-old boy with facial deformities. This story shows how his looks affects his relationship to the world. Such a touching story. By the way, check out the sequel of wonder. A must read if you love Wonder!
2.The Fall Of Butterflies by Andrea Portes
I don't think this book is appropriate for younger kids. Maybe this book is for a fourteen-year-old? But it is a must read. Seriously, it is about bestfriends. It is so sad and weird. But absolutely amazin

I think that Cathy Cassidy is also a good author:)

Hey Sophia Bluebell Wink,
Unfortunately, it's not real. Only because if I took my cat to school, he would probably go on the rampage and eat everyone. And I'm not kidding.
It's actually a toy dog 🐕, but it looks so much like a cat 🐈 it's confusing. 😕😊
I don't really have a preference. I love both, but I also like hamsters. Not that I have one, but still. 😊
Yes, a club is a great idea!
Maybe we could call it something to do with Harry Potter, like Dumbledore's Army, the Holyhead Harpies or the Chudley Cannons- just a suggesti

Hey Lady Kadie,

As we are quite good friends do you want to start a club? :-D As you and I love Harry Potter so much maybe we could call our club the Harry Potter club? We could do Harry Potter trivia sessions or quiz's.

Yours Truly,
Sophia Bluebell Wink;-)

P.S I'm sorry I sound really desperate I just want to make friends.And if anyone else wants to join the club they can.

Hi Lady Kadie,

OMG! You are going to have your own Crookshanks? Will you bring a toy cat into school or a real one?:-D I would be funny if it was real LOL!

Yours Truly,
Sophia Bluebell Wink;-)

P.S Do you like cats? I personally prefer dogs like JW's dog Jackson. So cute.

Holes by Louis Sachar is a truly awesome read. So is Wonder by R. J. Palacio and books by Cathy Cassidy are great for JW readers.

Sophia Bluebell Wink.
I've been unique every year. Plus, I had never seen another person dressed as Hermione in my school, and I bet no one's going to have their own Crookshanks.
I love Harry Potter more than anything. 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊
I am reading the Cursed Child as we speak (well, not as we speak, but you know what I mean, and it's the second time reading it. 😊

The Gossip: Tips

These are to make The Gossip easier and suitable for you all to use. Messages containing the following might not necessarily be deleted but they might be edited to make them appropriate:

  • Use a SPOILER alert! If you are giving away plots about any of Jacqueline’s books so other users who may not have read the book will know you are giving away some of the story. This is what the SPOILER alert is for. Think ‘By saying this, am I going to SPOIL the enjoyment of the book for people who haven’t read it?’ To add a spoiler alert just type – in CAPS to make it more impactful – SPOILER ALERT! At the start of your message!
  • Try not to post repetitive topics, for example: before starting a new topic, check if someone else has already started a similar one, you could join their chat.
  • Avoid typing rows and rows of emoticons or single letters or characters like exclamation marks – messages packed with these only clog up the system and we’ll probably delete them so they don’t block other messages
  • Stay on topic of other posted threads. Make sure you read what others have written and you are responding to that conversation. If you want to start a new topic, think about what you want to talk about and make sure you title your topic clearly.
  • Watch your sense of humour, posts may be read by people from a variety of backgrounds and ages.
  • Talking about sensitive subjects: We think it’s great that you feel you can post your dilemmas and give advice to each other. However, we won’t be allowed to post problems of a very serious nature. If you feel like you’re in trouble and have no-one or no-where to turn, please contact Childline who will be able to help you: 0800 1111
  • And finally, please be patient! Because we have to check every message for all of the above, and because so many of you are using The Gossip, sometimes it can take a while for your message to appear. If you’ve respected the above rules and guidelines then your message WILL appear eventually

Despite the above Tips and our vigilance, if you strongly feel that any particular post should not be on the board then please do email us at jacky@jacquelinewilson.co.uk.
