Unless you live in a hole, chances are you’ve been exposed to the hype of Twilight, Harry Potter, and most recently, The Hunger Games. Teenagers are literally going crazy over these movie adaptations — and well, mainstream society  has also adopted themes from these crazes. From Katniss-influenced style, to a Harry Potter Theme Park, and not to mentionTwilight-themed weddings — people are trying to make these fantasy plots a reality.

The great news is, yes, teenagers are reading. But with summer approaching, and no stern teacher mandating reading materials, teens often hit the TV, sit at the pool, or sleep.

Our solution: Load up your teen’s Kindle with the teen reads below. These books will keep them entertained (and you can secretly enjoy the fact that they’re continuing their education).


A Dystopian Thriller Trilogy – 

>Divergent – Veronica Roth


Overcoming Challenges and Gaining Hope – 

>The Running Dream – Wendelin Van Draanen

Suspenseful and Adventurous – 

>Michael Vey The Prisoner of Cell 25 – Richard Paul Evans


A Gripping Inventive Fantasy – 

>The Lost Conspiracy – Fances Hardinge


Spine-Tingling Fantasy – 

>Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs


Challenging Daring Tale – 

>Matched –  Ally Condie

With these options, hopefully you can avoid the dreaded “I’m bored” — quoted by so many teens during summer.  The great thing about each of these reads is that when your teen is finished, you can grab your cat eye readers  and sneak a quick glimpse too!
