The Reading List Project

This is an ongoing project – please scroll down to contribute your own text recommendations below if you have them!

There are approximately 100,000 new novels published in the English language per year worldwide.

Think about that. 100,000 new texts which we might potentially share with our students. No wonder why English teachers sometimes feel overwhelmed by the enormity of it all!

Enter The Reading List Project. This is a host of texts curated by English teachers, for English teachers.

Looking for something new for your KS3 curriculum?

Or something to recommend to students for reading at home?

These are all texts sitting outside the traditional canon which are highly literary, challenging and deserving of our attention. Have a browse – you might find something which delights you!
