Eight YA Authors Recommend Books for Teenage Guys

Eight YA Authors Recommend Books for Teenage Guys | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

"When confronted with over a hundred books, it can be really helpful to have expert recommendations – sort of like reader’s advisory about the reader’s advisory, if that’s not too meta for you all.  While we were putting together yesterday's wall - 140+ Books for the Boys of YA – we thought we might branch out a little bit and ask some of the authors featured in the wall itself for recommendations."
This post covers an impresive variety of quality (and fun) books for the young & young at heart - or even those who can just barely remember either state.

Read Kiddo Read : the inside scoop on what kids really like to read

Read Kiddo Read : the inside scoop on what kids really like to read | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

"If you love detective novels, you have probably read some of James Patterson's Alex Cross or Women's Murder Club novels. If you have teens in the house, they might have read his Maximum Ride, Witch & Wizard or Daniel X books. His mysteries and thrillers have topped the best-seller lists for years. In fact, he holds the Guinness Book of World Records title for the most hardcover fiction best-selling titles by one author (63!).

The man is a writing powerhouse, and now, because he is so passionate about books and reading, this award-winning author has created a website recommending great books for kids."

140+ Books for the Boys of YA

140+ Books for the Boys of YA | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

"...we’d like to present this wall of over 140 books that we think will speak to the boys of YA. They’re full of adventure, magic, real-world issues, and romance. Some of them are even written by - *gasp* - women. They give us all kinds of male figures: strong, brave, struggling, emotional, confused, and yes - even a few great role models. Most of all, they give us great stories for any reader -- almost all of these books appeal to us as adult women even though we are probably not the target audience from a marketing perspective. That being said, while we do think that there will always be outlier readers who feel comfortable reading anything and everything (and we love them for it), we also realize that it might be a struggle to hand-sell a book with a girl in a dress on the cover or a romance-driven plot to the "average" boy. We'd love to think of this list as a tool for educators, librarians, parents, and teens to find a great read for the boys in their lives, but anyone who enjoys a great story will find something in this wall of books."

Why Boys Read the Hunger Games

Why Boys Read the Hunger Games | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

"It goes without saying, especially because of the intellectual and educational value of reading, that finding books that actually engross a boy, that they want to talk about, and that they might even read again, well, that is a dream come true to many parents."

"For those of you who “Like” Ties to Literacy on Facebook, you are familiar with A Boy’s Bookshelf and its focus on books, authors, and other reading material you might find on a boy’s bookshelf. I have decided to dedicate a weekly blog post to A Boy’s Bookshelf because I am so often asked for recommendations of books and reading material for boys..."
