Books My Reluctant Reader Liked

My 8 year-old is sometimes a reluctant reader. He reads very well, but he won't read unless the book really grabs him quickly. I'm always grateful when people give me good suggestions for him, so I thought I'd create a list of books that other reluctant reader boys might enjoy.

Just a little caveat - I did not put these in any particular order. I just entered them as I remembered which books he enjoyed.
