The Week Junior: Summer of Reading


Join the Summer of Reading and unleash your reading superpowers this summer!

Where are you going this summer? How about visiting a village in the Himalayas, or going on an adventure in 19th century Amsterdam? Would you like to experience a magical ice garden, or embark on a quest to free dragons from captivity? Perhaps you’d prefer to meet a Jamaican freedom fighter or get to know the Greek gods? The Week Junior are inviting you to unleash your reading superpowers and find out just how far a good book can take you.

All you have to do to take part is find the right book for you – and that’s where the challenge begins. It’s easy to get involved and there are some fantastic prizes up for grabs:

  • A book bundle worth £200 plus a £50 National Book Token for the winner

  • A £50 National Book Token each for three runners up

Just follow our three simple steps:


Step 1: Choose 3 books
With so many brilliant books to choose from, this might just prove to be the hardest part of the challenge. If you can’t decide what to read, take a look at  The Week Junior’s Summer of Reading booklist. Our experts have picked 50 books to tickle your reading tastebuds.

Step 2: Read, rate and review
When you have finished reading each book, fill out a Summer of Reading review form and rate each book. Next, describe the book in three words. If you’d like to write a longer review, use the lined space to share your thoughts.
