Book Suggestions for 13yo Boy

Recommended Posts

Mrs Twit

I'm after some book suggestions for DS just turned 13.

He is currently on the last book in the John Flanagan series Brotherband which he has particularly enjoyed along with the Rangers Apprentice series. 

Other books series he has enjoyed are Harry Potter, Divergent, The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner

Thanks!

Fantasy recs

Holly Black and Cassandra Clare's Magisterium series.
Dark Blade - Steve Feasey
The Contender series - Taran Matharu
Skulduggery Pleasant - Derek Landy

Neal Shusterman's Scythe series is absolutely brilliant but as the books go on (a trilogy) they probably get a bit more mature in themes.

Dystopian recs

Mark Smith (australian author) - The Road to Winter trilogy
Monument 14 series by Emmy Laybourne

I have read all these myself and work in a secondary school library and these are some of our most popular, particularly with boys.

This and he also has another book that is due out soon called To sleep in a sea of stars which looks great.

Sarah J Mass's Throne of Glass series might be a good match too. Also Lani Taylor and the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series (first book is called this).

OK great thanks. I am keeping a list of all of these suggestion. I am trying to reserve a whole lot of books online for everyone from the library. We are in VIC so the library is closed. They will deliver but there is a couple of weeks wait and a limit of 10 books :(. Oh well. We might have to see what my DDs school library has as she can reserve there and pick up in person. 

I did try to tell him to read slower...
