Fun Summer Reading List (for boys, mostly)

If you’re a little too old for the Hardy boys and have already read the Diary of a Wimpy Kid 8 times, here are a few ideas to keep your summer reading on!

Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr) – the fourth book in this cycle comes out in November; read the review of Eragon here!

Inkheart by Cornelia Funke – read the review here!

Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson – read the review here!

Ranger's Apprentice Series by John Flanagan – short, fun reads; it’s a series that must be read in order

Agatha Christie – mysteries we never get tired of; read a review here!

100 Cupboards by N. D. Wilson – the first book in a series of 3, and rumor has it, they are making a movie!

Kingdom Keepers by Ridley Pearson – a Disney World action/adventure series that might make you want to take a vacation to Florida

The Heir Chronicles by Cinda Williams Chima – start out with The Warrior Heir in a 3 book series that’s best read in order

Theodore Boone by John Grisham – the best-selling author has a new series for a younger audience; read the review here!

The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan – another series from the Percy Jackson author; read a review of The Red Pyramid here!

Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan – and another series from the Percy Jackson author (book 2 comes out in October)

I Am Number 4 by Pittacus Lore – the book is better than the movie, and the next in the series comes out in August

Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand – the best-selling survival story of an American in WWII

Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling – if you haven’t read these yet, you must
