Best Books for Older Teen Boys

As teenage boys get older it becomes harder and harder for them to find good reads. Let's help them out by compiling a list of great reads for young men here. Please don't vote for anything that's even marginally Middle Grade. They want to read up, not down.

message 1: by Wendy (new)

Wendy This is probably one of the hardest questions I get asked at my library... It's so hard to tell with a teen boy what appeals to them.

I'd love to see more get added to this list..I will definitely be using it in teen readers advisory!


message 2: by Brent (new)

Brent His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman


message 3: by Donna (new)

Donna Thanks for this list. Here's hoping it will entice my non-reader boy!


message 4: by Bookiemonster (new)

Bookiemonster What about under the never sky? It's half from a male PoV right?


message 5: by Cassandra (new)

Cassandra Under the Never Sky does have half male PoV. However, it's just not really a good book.


message 6: by Julia (last edited Aug 15, 2017 09:18AM) (new)

Julia My brother likes Stephen King short stories, and biographies by comedians, like Peter Kay or Alan Carr (and he almost never reads anything!)

He likes the Maze Runner movies, so I've been trying to tempt him into trying the book, but no luck yet.
