Book Recommendations for Middle School

Need a great book to read but not sure where to look?  These book recommendation sites provide lots of great suggestions.  You can search by age range, genre, and more.  Take a look:

YALSA Reads4Teens site
The Young Adult Library Services Association has put together a website highlighting some of the most highly-recommended books for teens.  Check out a number of lists of top books and award-winners here.

Multnomah County Library Reading Lists: Teens
The Multnomah County Library system in Oregon has put together a range of lists (organized by genre or topic) for teens.  Also check out their “Reading Lists: Kids” and sort by name to find those lists which highlight books for people in grades 6-8 (lots of good recommendations here!)

Kids’ Books and Reading
The Hennepin County Library has put together this lovely site which provides lists in a range of formats.  Search by “If you like…” settings, genre, and more.  The site is very user-friendly.  I recommend looking at the Children’s section (you can filter by age range), as well as the Teens section.’s Ultimate Reading List
This huge list from TeenReads offers a wide range of great book titles and synopses.
