About the Girls - crowd favourites

At our recent About the Girls series of events, we asked everyone to tell us their favourite books. Here's the list. It's got a good mix: some new, some old, some I have read, some I haven't.

If you're looking for something to read, why not try a few from the list (even if you're a boy, like me). You can search for them in our catalogue and reserve them online. If you have read some of them, feel free to add your thoughts in the comments below. Or tell us your favourite from this list of favourites.
