What would make a REALLY interesting and fun forum? How can we start conversations?
What do we say? How do we say it? This is your space. We want YOU to decide!
i love the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
I reccomend Cathy Cassidy.
Do you speak chocolate is THE BEST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ! and Jacqueline Wilson recommended it!:-p
101 dalmatians by Dodie Smith is absolutely brilliant and the goth-girl series are good aswell
All Eva Ibbotson books are amazing! though i especially recommend which witch?.
yea ur absolutely right,beauty I have the 2nd book as well and read all of them!
I would really recommend any books in the "Percy Jackson". Percy Jackson and the lighting thief is first book in that series, if you were wondering. I would also suggest the "Maze Runner" series though some people under 10 may find then a bit scary. Percy Jackson books are my favourite out of these, though.
I recommend famous five and naughtiest girl series with all my heart
I absolutely loved cog-heart and it is for boys and girls
Sinclair mysteries are great, and they have them in most libraries!
I would recommend all of the harry potter series and of course all JW BOOKS
Anne of green gabels serries by Lucy Muad Montgomery
Its so amazing but maybe a 9 plus book becauses it old fashioned and a bit hard to read
you should totally read candy floss!
I agree with Glitzy Rabbit Kitten, Enid Blyton is AWSOME!!! I would recommend the Secret Seven series, Famous Five series, Five Find-Outers and Dog series and The Magic Faraway Tree series.
I LOVED Skellig AND My Name Is Mina.
Bella Cynthia Midnight, nice name. I have read Clean Break. Have you?
SPOILER ALERT. SPOILER ALERT (No seriously this is a big spoiler for Clean Break)
Don't you just hate it when Em's Dad breaks up with her mum and on Christmas Day to!
And I felt really sorry for Em's Dad when Em described how horrible his new girlfriends flat was, serves him right though.
I love Micheal Morpurgo! What do you mean by 'older readers'? Cause if year 5 counts as older, well thats great.
this is gonna be a long list. well, here goes!
.The 'Clementine' series(age 7)..........Sara Pennypacker
. The 'Miss Peregrines Hone for Peculiar Children' series(age 10)..........Ransom Riggs
.'The Man' (age 8)..........Ramond Briggs
. The 'Harry Potter' series(literally ALL ages)..........J.K Rowling
.anything by Paul Jennings(6)
. 'Bloodlace'(age 12)..........can't remember the authors name
.the 'Scarlet and Ivy' series(age 8)..........Sophie Cleverly
I can't be bothered listing any more.<
I would recomend the EnidBlyton sreies
I really recommend THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK , and all of the MICHAEL MORPURGO books.
( Recommended for older readers and ones who can cope with sad stories !!! ) : )
Also , read KATY , CLEAN BREAK , LILY ALONE ,WAVE ME GOODBYE and ALL OF THE HETTY FEATHER SERIES !!
I recommend Pax by Sara PennyPacker. there is some sadness, and at times it is heartbreaking, but it is a brilliant read. I think it is based around 9 - 13 year olds.
I very very very strongly recommend Skellig by David Almond. But I would say it for over ten year olds, as it includes some sadness. Skellig is a real page-turner. Then you should read My Name Is Mina, also by David Almond. It is a prequel to Skellig.
2.Warrior cats bye Erin Hunter
3.ALL OF JW'S BOOKS!!!
my sister jodie by jaqueline wilson is amazing its a real page turner and quite sad at the end would definetly recomend i loved it:- love hetty
Everyone MUST read wolves of wiloughby chase. it is AMAZING! But STILL not as good as jacky's books (which are even more amazing)
I reccomend "To Be A Cat" I can't remember who it is by, but it's a really good book!
I would totally recommend reading the twisted tales series!!!
they are soooo good!!!
if u don't know what it is its basically fairytales going wrong.
SCARLET HARMONY EMERALD;)
Mabel Cherry Butterfly,
You had asked what 'My Sister Jodie' is about, well I'm gonna tell you about Jodie!
If you want to read the book yourself then stop reading this post.
Jodie is a girl who is capable of ANYTHING, she's a teenager and she would risk anything!
She also has a little sister and it's written in first person by the little sister!
Read the book to know what the little sisters name is!
By the way, it very emotional at the end by it does get a bit happier!
Has anyone read little stars? It is like the best book ever! It would probaly suit about 10 onwards but even though I am younger than 10 I loved it!
Bella Cynthia Midnight,
I've read 'Clean Break' and I think you should read it to it's soooooooo GOOD!
It's literally so amazing and as soon as I got it I couldn't put it down!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
