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)!
This site created by the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County offers many book recommendations organized and searchable by genre.
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.
