Great Places to Look for Great Books

Great Books!Flamingnet.com
Teens review for this site, which was created by a teen and his father. Even better, if you sign up for the mailing list, you’ll have chances to snag some free books.

GuysLitWire Blog
Unlike the link below, this site concentrates on books for teenaged boys. Most of the reviewers are guys, so these reviews are right from the horse’s mouth.

GuysRead.com
Remember The Stinky Cheese Man and the Time Warp Trio? This site was created by the guy who created those characters, so you know he knows what guys like to read! This site is for boys (and their parents) of all ages.

Novelist Plus
You just finished a great book and want to know what else the author has written or the next title in the series? You’ve finished all the books an author has written and want to read something like it? NovelListPlus will help. From our web site, go to Internet Resources > Databases, click on EBSCO, then Novelist Plus.

Reading Rants: Out of the Ordinary Teen Booklists
This terrific resource has books for every type of reader. To name just a few:

  • Nail Biters
  • Riot Grrrl
  • Boy Meets Book
  • Closet Club
  • Reality Bites!

Smith Middle School
If you like reading a certain kind of book or you have to read one for a school assignment, you’ll find several genre lists for you to browse here.

TeenReads.com
Short, casual reviews of the very latest books. This site offers many opportunities for teens to voice their opinions and provide feedback, including a very active Facebook page.

Yalsa
There’s a booklist for almost every need on this site.

  • Printz Award winners
  • Alex Award winners (adult books that are also great reads for teens)
  • Best Books for Young Adults
  • Great Graphic Novels for Teens
  • Outstanding Books for the College Bound
  • Popular Paperbacks
  • Quick Picks (Reading’s not your thing, but you have to choose a book for school? There’s a list for that!)
