Top Ten Tuesday: Middle Grade Fiction Recommendations for Boys

Hi there!

Happy Election Day!

For those of you who don’t know, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the wonderful people at The Broke and Bookish.  This week’s theme is open to whatever us book bloggers want to make our lists about.

I was talking with some sixth grade boys at school recently about books they’ve enjoyed, so I thought I’d focus this week’s list around some of the titles these boys recommended (other than The Wimpy Kid Series).  So, this week’s list is Top Ten Middle Grade Recommendations for Boys. Now, don’t get my wrong girls can read these books too…of course…but these are some of the titles my boys said they love!

  1. Good for you! This is one of the hardest groups to keep reading in the middle grades, I think.

    I’m reading one you can add to this list. It’s Artemis Fowl. Lots of action and zaniness.

    Some of the best books I’ve ever read are short books you can read in a night. Here’s my Top Ten Best One-Night Reads!

    • Yes, Hiaasen’s books are great! For some reason, my girls enjoy his books more than my boys do…go figure! I will definitely check out your post, pet names has me intrigued! :)

  2. Great to see some book lists for boys popping up, especially as I need to shop for my nephews :) Alcatraz vs. The Evil Librarians looks like a good one, and I’ve been curious about the SkinJacker trilogy. Thanks for sharing your recs!
