The BookGang choose the best best books 2013

Today we had a BookGang sugar festival.  Chocolate, lollypops, chocolate biscuits and a lollyscramble in the library.  It was all very loud, grabby and fun.  There was a quiz, there was fun choosing yet more books for the summer holidays and we made a list of the best books the BookGang have read this year.

So, without further ado, here is the list of the BookGang Best Books of 2013 (in no particular order) with the name of the nominator alongside.

  29. Wool Series by Hugh Howey (Ms Schaumann)
  30. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (Ms Schaumann)
 Because we didn't quite get to 30 I added my choices at the end.  As you can see there are varied tastes in our BookGang.  Some people really like war stories and action thrillers, others like series books.  Magic and wizardry are popular and this year far more than any other the manga are popular. BookGang continues to thrive and these boys are such fantastic booklovers and readers they are a pleasure to spend time with.
