Student Guest Post: Top Books and Series

Here is the top ten favorite books of one of my 8th graders.  I am baffled by how he can enjoy a book, yet not finish it, but I am committed to allowing students to choose when to DNF books, and I do know this kid is reading steadily all the same.  

My top 10 favorite books.

1. Bone by Jeff Smith : I really like these books because they really are interesting and sometimes funny. The book has some action that is really good in my opinion.

2. Amulet by Kazu Kibuishi: I have read the whole series twice because there is such good detail, I like the book in general.

3. A light in the Attic by Shel silverstein: I really like this SS book in particular because it is very funny, Ive read all of his books and this one is my favorite.

4. Cardboard by DougTenNapel: Im really liking this book because its very creative make any thing with cardboard I think thats pretty cool.

5. The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan: Even though I did not finish this book it I still liked it because I would never get distracted when I was reading this because it was just so good.

6. Diary Of A Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney: All of these books are great the font of the book is perfect makes it more original. I never get bored when Im reading one of these books.

7. The Circuit by Francisco Jimenez: the book was very touching at some points, I really like the book I cannot imagine living like that. Also it was based on a true story, which makes it even more incredible.

8. Unexplained by Judy Allen: I really like scary/horror books and mysterious stuff so I find this book very interesting.

9. The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick: My 4th grade teacher read this book to the class and honestly since then I haven't really found any books that were like this, very orginal I like it.

10. Poppy by Avi: Although I forgot what the story was about I remembered liking it a lot.

  1. Ha! Yes a top ten list written by an eighth grader is a lot different than one we'd write. I'm happy that he can give you a list, though - you must be doing something right! :-)
