40+ Books For 13 Year Old Boys That They Can’t Put Down

Like What You See? Tell Your Friends!

My son loves to read, I mean really loves to read. So I wanted to share with you his absolute favorite books for 13 year old boys that he can’t put down.

He is a self-confessed geek and loves all things Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Marvel. So a lot of these kids’ books fall into this category. But that’s ok, he is still reading.

Check out our favorite book lists for kids with over 20 book lists included. For kids of all ages, for school, for reading, and for every season. Plus lots of free book printables.

My son has taken a mapping test and his Lexile score is 1225Lā€“1375LL, this is college-ready level. The only reason I share this, is I have never told him what books to read.

He is free to choose whatever books he wants. Whether they are picture books, comics, reading books, reference books, or encyclopedias.

Some of the books in this list will also be suitable for younger children, but they will be enjoyed by teenagers too. I have previously shared our top 100 books for 9 year old boys too, so if you have younger children check this out.

Best books to read for a 13 year old boy

The absolute best books for a 13-year-old boy according to Freddie are the Harry Potter series. He only started reading these last year and is still going through them now.

What I love about this is not only do I get him to write a book report and then we watch the movie. He needs to use a compare and contrast movie and book template to write about the differences. But if you don’t homeschool, or have a reluctant reader I would advise against doing this!
