Lea I really like this list although I think it's missing some...The BFG by Rhoald Dahl? The Bruno & Boots books by George Korman? Nancy Drew. The Wayside School Stories, and There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom by Louis Sachar. Those are some of the first ones that got me into reading.

message 24: by Amyiw (last edited Nov 29, 2015 02:11AM) (new)

Amyiw I think "The DOM wars" 1-3 and 4-6 needs to be removed from this list. Not exactly for youngster that are reluctant readers as it is BDSM erotica. Also the "Ruin" series.


message 25: by Sariah (new)

Sariah only problem is that it doesnt give any suggestions! already read them all. :(


message 27: by Booklovinglady (last edited Dec 26, 2016 06:54AM) (new)

Booklovinglady If one wants to scare off a reluctant reader forever, one should advice him or her to read A Clockwork Orange (#347)...

Don't get me wrong, it is a great book and a magnificent accomplishment, but it is certainly not the kind of book suited for reluctant readers and it certainly will not encourage youngsters to read, as it is far too difficult.
