Boys’ Life has provided 100 years of great reading. Here are 100 other titles that every guy should read. Some suggestions will require parental guidance.
39 clues and diary of a wimpy kid are awesome but where is bone and amulet?
WHERE IS THE MERRY ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD????????!!!!!!!!
THEY HAD DR. SEUSS BOOKS UP THERE FOR PETE’S SAKE!!!!
I am embarrased to say that I love to read but I have only read 31
I have either read, been read, or am reading 18 books.
WHERES BEAST QUEST?!?!
when I saw “100 Books For Boys” I’d think how to train your dragon series would be in there plus dangerous book for boys … oh well. I am looking forward to reading the lord of the rings books, Percy Jackson, the Hobbit and the hardy boys, it seems you never see to many hardy boys books floating around here in this world. I was never interested in reading 39 clues, harry potter and alot more of those old ones listed on here. I definitely think the eragon series should be in this list.
the hobbit and lord of the rings are older than both the 39 clues and harry potter(which, by the way, is very good).
i love the return of the king its the best of the lord of the rings series
I have read 57 books.I did not see the art of war or the prisoner of zenda on the list.
I’m not realy a big Narnia(though I admit that it’s not so bad).The best are probably Diary Of A Wimpy Kid,Lord Of The Rings and the Hardy Boys, then again they’re all pretty good. Well all-in-all this is an awsome list.
P.S. Were’s The Dangerous Book For Boys?
you forgot the 39 clues but yes you are right
Hay, they forgot Orson Scott Card’s books like The Tales of Alvin Maker and Ender’s Game.(:-()
i love hardy boys, artemis fowl, hunger games, 39 clues, the giving tree, and EVERYBODY should read PERCY JACKSON series,and rick riordans other series called the heros of olympus and an egyptian one.
i read almost all the books on the list
I read Shilo and Hatchet and it was fun
I love the lord of the rings! I love artemis Fowl! I love the Hobbit! I love Narnia! I love the Phantom Tollbooth! I love Treasure Island! I LOVE TINTIN!!!!!!!!!!
I love the Lord of the Rings too. (The Hobbit is the first book in the series actually) I’ve read the Chronicles of Narnia Series about 5 times in the past 2 years. (I’ve pretty much memorized them with the audio series/movies to go with it!) All great books!
i have read all the adventures of tintin and they are GREAT! the phantom tollbooth is great to but they are missing the hank the cowdog series. i have read about 20 on here
I’d advise The Mysterious Benedict Society Series. They are great books.
Diary Of A Wimpy Kid,Lord Of The Ring,and The Hardy Boys, are the best!
Pendragon??? And the keys to the kingdom series
This list is epic.
I’ve read all of them.
I have read 42. and I loved the hunger games! it should be number two! next to the giver, it was the best book ever! I’m surprised giver isn’t on the list.
I thought The Giver had THE worst cliffhanger ever created.
35 so far, I’m in the middle of Great Expectations and Of Mice and Men at the moment.
Every 22 Redwall books should be on here because each are as awesome as anyone of these books.
i got sick at the 18 one
wheres the kingdom series its like the best series ever!
r u talking about the christen 1s? if so i agree
I’v read Where the Red Fern Grows 15 times and I still cry at the end and I’m not afraid to admit it.
Best. Book. Ever!
i mean 46
I’ve read 45!
ok, WHERE is the mysterious benedict society?
Where is Redwall, Fablehaven, Eragon, and the new Beyonders
Redwall is a good series.
you have great taste in books
There can only be 1 best.
Diskworld is the BEST and so are all of Tolkiens books. but there are definately a few more I would add
I’ve read only 3% of them, but like I said in “100 Movies” I’ve heard about a couple of them.
I’ve read 13. Would be 14 but I can never finish Bridge to Terabithia after seeing the movie. Sad, I know.
I have seen 36 of them. I just recently finished Tuck Everlasting and I am reading the Phantom Tollbooth.
P.S. Hi, Jonbuddy!
Anyway, I think the “Space Odyssey” series should be on here. I just finished the first book, 2001, and just got out 2010 from my library. The series should be on the “100 Movies” list as well.
YOU WATCHED THE MOVIE WHILE READING THE BOOK?!
No, I saw the movie and then read the book.
where’s the Fablehaven series?
They’re missing The Adventures of TinTin
Missing Eragon and Redwall
the book is okay but DO NOT watch the movie of where the wild things are! It’s incredibly gloomy.
I LOVE redwall!
No PENDRAGON??? That really surprises me!
Yeah, wheres Pendragon? Some more good books:
Hooray for all these… It’s awesome… I used one of these for my school assignments.
Good list, read about a quarter of them. Just one thing……
WHERE IS REDWALL????
Wish there were Eragon(series) Books:Eragon,Eldest,Brisingr,Coming in 2011 (It has a green cover) Author:Christopher Paolini
My Mom gave me most of these books to read before this list ever came out . Great reference. Buut, they should put what ages probably would like them.
I have allready read most of these
Ive read most of these already…
Harry Potter is fine too. I understand your thoughts, myself having a Christian background. Have you read them? Very fun fantasy. Classics are wonderful. Parents need to read or re-read too. I am.
Harry Potter is good and probably will become a classic eventually but right now it’s not old enough.
The later diskworld series have gotten darker and less fun to read. Also my favorites missing from the list were Tripods, Day of the triffids, and Harlon Ellison’s Memos from Pergatory. Overall, a good list.
Great reference list. My oldest has read at least 25 of these, including lots of the series.
Not too bad of a list with a few exceptions (Harry Potter). I would like to see more Christian authors.
Harry Potter rules and just because it’s about wizards doesn’t mean it teaches witchcraft!
In response to “The Indian”, I think Harry Potter should be on there. I know a lot of people object to books that contain references to magic, but I don’t really think that you should worry about that with Harry Potter. It is rather dark though.
I think that Inheritance series-Eragon,Eldest,Brisingr should be on there as well. Speaking of which, I wonder when Christopher will finish the series.
harry potter rules!
Cool! Add 1 next year!
The reason they made 1 this year is only because it’s the 100 year anniversary of BL
