In the last post there were several recommendations for the Cherub series and if you haven’t read them yet give them a go. If you like The Hunger Games series and the Alex Rider books you are bound to enjoy them. The Recruit is book one and it hooks you in to the series.
I prefer the Cherub series to Alex Rider actually as they are grittier reads and have an ensemble cast of characters which I think is a lot more fun than lone wolf Alex. The more realistic settings also makes the books very accessible.
As I mentioned the Cherub books do hook you in. They are exciting, well paced adventures that are hard to put down. I like that James is a flawed hero which makes him easier to relate to. The books are compelling and would be a great way to wind down from school. Give them a try.
