Lists of Top YA Books to Target Reluctant Readers (SDR)


Many times we struggle to find the right book for our reluctant readers. The site Goodreads has a great feature called Listopia which allows you to search thousands of lists to find the perfect book for your students. These list are arranged by genre, tags, awards, and a number of other ways. While browsing the site I found quite a few “top lists” for reluctant readers. I will share them below so that you can take a look and see if there are any books that might be of interest to your students.

One thought on “Lists of Top YA Books to Target Reluctant Readers (SDR)

  1. This is really interesting, SDR! I think this site could be helpful for teachers seeking the right book for reluctant readers. I quickly browsed the “Books for Reluctant Readers – Targeting Boys” list, and there are several books with titles that jump out at you. Some of the titles even made me laugh out loud. If these titles get a rise out of reluctant readers in the same way they got a rise out of me, the reluctant readers might just crack them! Thanks for the links.
