Book Club Update
The junior book club continues to meet every Thursday for lively, biscuit-filled discussion of our current reads. The group are reading a broad range of genres (fantasy, mystery, realistic fiction, science fiction, thriller), formats (including graphic novels and verse novels), and authors including (but not by any means limited to!) Sarah Crossan, Angie Thomas, Robin Stevens, Sophie McKenzie, Malorie Blackman, Holly Smale, Katherine Webber and Philip Reeve.
We have two Christmas themed books for our December Junior Book Club! ❄🎄😍
Let it Snow: Three Holiday Romances ☃️by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle.
Sparkling white snowdrifts, beautiful presents wrapped in ribbons, and multicolored lights glittering in the night through the falling snow. A Christmas Eve snowstorm transforms one small town into a romantic haven, the kind you see only in movies. Well, kinda. After all, a cold and wet hike from a stranded train through the middle of nowhere would not normally end with a delicious kiss from a charming stranger. And no one would think that a trip to the Waffle House through four feet of snow would lead to love with an old friend. Or that the way back to true love begins with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks. Thanks to three of today’s bestselling teen authors—John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle—the magic of the holidays shines on these hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and breathtaking kisses.

Mistletoe and Murder by Robin Stevens🎄💀
Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are spending the Christmas hols in snowy Cambridge. Hazel has high hopes of its beautiful spires, cosy libraries and inviting tea-rooms – but there is danger lurking in the dark stairwells of ancient Maudlin College.
Two days before Christmas, there is a terrible accident. At least, it appears to be an accident – until the Detective Society look a little closer, and realise a murder has taken place. Faced with several irritating grown-ups and fierce competition from a rival agency, they must use all their cunning and courage to find the killer (in time for Christmas Day, of course).
The fabulously festive fifth mystery from the bestselling, award-winning author of Murder Most Unladylike.
