My boys are currently almost 10 (this week!) and 14. I really didn’t have to work at coming up with entries in a list of books for tween boys, I just had to sit down and think about the authors and titles I’ve seen as I’ve picked up after my kids over the past three-to-four years. (Well, OK, I’ve picked up, sat down and read many of these books too!). I’ve included quite a few book series because I’ve found that when you have a reluctant reader, finding a series that he will read is like hitting the jackpot since you get not just one book or one author, but a whole set that will keep your child going for weeks.
Additionally, I’ve included single titles from great authors such as Louis Sachar, Sharon Creech, Nancy Farmer and more. If you can, encourage your child to try other books by these authors – he won’t be disappointed.
That’s it for book lists from me for now, but please, do add your suggestions in the comments below – I’m really enjoying learning about new authors and titles this way.
My boys have started their own blog where they have posts about our travels and reviews of books they’ve enjoyed. The links below are to their review of the title in question.
