Top Books to Read This Easter

Not read a book for pleasure in ages? Want to get back into reading? We asked in the Twinkl Book Club for top recommendations for books to read this Easter break. Here's their favourite reads that have kept them hooked from the first page:


The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

 "I am STILL going on about The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. Beautifully descriptive, engaging and haunting. The imagery is written so perfectly and the bleak setting fits so well with the bleakness of the character's lives." Kate


The Gracekeepers by Kirsty Logan

"I recently read The Gracekeepers by Kirsty Logan and fell into a different world whilst reading it. Beautifully written and thoroughly enjoyable."  Michelle


Kane and Abel by Jeffery Archer

"Absolutely astounding. That man can tell stories like it's nobody's business. It's so brilliantly written, weaved and plays out incredibly well." Stephanie


A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

"Totally gripping and emotional. Read within 2 days - usually takes me longer to read a book but couldn't put it down!" Tracy


The Magic Cottage by James Herbert

"Have read so many good books lately but my favourite book that I return to over and over. It's a lovely book with a few scary bits, not the horror of some of his books." Ruth


Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

"A sweeping historical saga following the (eventual) development of a feminist central character." Claire


Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

"I have reread it so many times and get something different from it each time." Jenny


Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

"A real test of a good book for me is one I can revisit multiple times and still get the same joy out of it. Rebecca is a thrilling, pacey and (sometimes) romantic edge-of-your-seat kind of read, with one of the most famous opening lines... Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again... If you haven't read it, you're in for a treat." Finnski
