I made a note of the authors - not titles - of books being read in my class today :
Madeline l'Engle Anthony Horrowitz Eoin Colfer Morris Gleitzman Brian Patten Roger McGough Susan Cooper Animated tales - Much a do - Will Shakespeare Brian Moses Christopher Paolini Jamila Gavin Jacqueline Wilson John Boyne Terry Deary HarryHill Stewart Henderson Ian Surraillier RL Stevenson
1 Natural World
1 Horrible History
1 Earth in Space
So poetry, non-fiction and fiction including as broad a range of authors as you can find (different eras and every genre) - job done!
