2014 Middle Grade/Young Adult Summer Reading List
It’s the time of year when I turn to my friend young adult author Amanda Brice and beg her for middle grade and young adult mystery titles that will keep my 11-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter entertained for the coming months and share those recommendations with our readers. This year, sadly, Amanda is offline due to a sick toddler, so my daughter and son are filling in with their book recommendations. All of us at Kiss and Thrill hope Amanda’s little guy gets better quickly!
As we do each year, I’m asking our readers to chime in with their book recommendations in the comments. Summer is long and my kids are voracious readers, I need books! One lucky commenter will win a print or ebook copy of one of the books recommended by my kids – winner’s choice. On Thursday I’ll post a downloadable list of all the books recommended here and in the blog comments.
Before we get started on our list, here is a mom tip from me: if your son or daughter has an ereader of their own, use the links on this page to send a sample directly to their device. No need to remember titles or guess what they’ll like because they can try them all for free!
Here are my daughter’s book recommendations, in no particular order. (If you check out this list every year, you will see some titles repeated from previous years. These are books she really, really loves.)
Okay readers, my kids have shared some of their favorites, now it’s your turn! Please post your book recommendations for middle school and high school aged readers. One commenter will win a copy of one of the books my kids recommended, winner’s choice! Check back on Thursday to see if you are our winner.
