Best YA Guy Reads

I usually read "Guy Reads" myself, and they are hard to come by in the YA genre so I hope this will help guys find some good books to read as well as let me know your favorites! (If you add books to this list, just please make sure they are actual "guy reads" i.e. male protagonist, action/adventure not things that would be more interesting to girls. Think classic stuff. Thanks!)

Jess Thanks so much for this list! Even though I'm a girl I found some new books that sound good! :)


message 2: by Hazel (new)

Hazel West You're welcome! Yeah, I love reading guy reads too, so I hope you enjoy the suggestions =)


message 3: by DL (new)

DL I love boys books too. I think it's the adventurer in me. Swiss Family Robinson was one of my favorite books when I was growing up!


message 4: by DL (new)

DL We need more guys voting here!


message 5: by Hazel (new)

Hazel West I agree ;) Most of the voters here were girls. Which proves another point I had... girls like guy reads!


message 6: by Hazel (new)

Hazel West By the way, you're book looks good, I've added it as a to-read =)

DL Cool!

Just purchased and tweeted! It's on my TBR list but it might be awhile before I read it.


message 11: by Hazel (new)

Hazel West That's okay, my TBR list is so long, it will take forever to get to everything ;)


message 12: by Marcus (new)

Marcus divergent, better not be in this category list.

Well, I certainly didn't add it


message 14: by Bookiemonster (new)

Bookiemonster Thank you for this, as a guy


message 15: by Hazel (new)

Hazel West You're welcome! I can't promise all of them are perfect anymore since people have added some I don't think are considered guy reads :P

This looks like a great list Hazel. If you created the list, I think you can curate it. If you know something doesn't belong, take it off!


message 17: by Hazel (new)

Hazel West I've tried to find where you do that, and so far haven't been successful. I assume there is some way, and if you have a clue let me know :)
