Posted on: August 11, 2015

From the TES site https://www.tes.co.uk/news/school-news/breaking-news/100-fiction-books-all-children-should-read-leaving-secondary-school-%E2%80%93, here are the top 10 books to read before leaving secondary school. Most of the novels in the top 10 have been included on recent GCSE courses.

1. 1984 by George Orwell

2. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

3. Animal Farm by George Orwell

4. Lord of the Flies by William Golding

5. Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

6. The Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling

7. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

8. The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger

9. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

10. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

The only books published in the last 50 years on the list, are Rowling’s Harry Potter novels.

Let’s see,.. hmm.. I just finished no 3 “Animal Farm”; done with “Harry Potter” and “To Kill the Mockingbird”. Seven more to go.
