Middle School Summer Reading Book List

Summer reading and the living is easy… My kids will attest to the fact that there is nothing like a Middle School Summer Reading Book List.

I plan months in advance what our summer reading is going to be, figuring out which ones my middle schooler should consider reading on his own and which ones I’m going to read out loud to my two boys, ages 9 and 11.

Sounds a little crazy? Maybe. But that’s just how I roll. So let’s gear up for another fun summer of reading!

Three of the books we absolutely loved this year that I believe should go at the top of your list are Fish in a Tree, The Girl Who Drank the Moon and The Inquisitor’s Tale.

    SO many great suggestions! My middle son loved All’s Faire in Middle school. Thanks for the ideas. Pinned.

  2. Woodson’s award-winning memoir (National Book Award, Newbery Honor, Coretta Scott King Author Award) is funny and sad and everything in between. The intimate and engaging poems will teach middle schoolers about a complicated time in American history, but it’s also a universal story about coming of age, changing family dynamics, and learning what makes you uniquely talented.
