English Practice Exercises by Amanda Alexander, Rachel Gee

This book provides comprehensive practice for all sections of the Common Entrance English Paper at 13+. A new and varied selection of texts and poems has been specifically chosen to provide comprehension practice and to provoke thought. In addition, this book provides a large bank of questions for the Studied Literature and Writing Task sections. The book is pitched carefully for use during the Common Entrance year and the questions are modelled on the ISEB exam papers. This is an ideal book for teachers to give extensive practice in the classroom or for parents wishing to give their child extra practice.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
