Welcome to Lit Club!


Welcome to the Lit Club blog. On this blog we will be keeping a record of the books we present at Lit Club and also a lot of other information about authors, different genres (types of books), general information about books and libraries. 

To join Lit Club you must be in Year 5-8 and be prepared to read, read, and read some more. We will be sharing books, talking about authors, taking part  in a lot of quizzes and basically having a lot of fun with literature.

This blog is an exciting place to visit to get ideas about new books, old books, picture books, non-fiction and fiction.

Over time we will build up recommendations and you will be able to visit the blog to read these and watch book trailers to help you decide what you want to read next.
