Book List for 8th Grade

This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, visit my disclosure page

When planning for a new school year, my favorite task is to create a book list for my children.

I can readily admit that I have a bit of a book problem.

We’re all huge book worms at our house.

I’m never quite satisfied with the lists curated by the various curriculum companies. Therefore, I spend hours poring over read lists and book reviews.

After hours of work, I have a complete book list that encompasses multiple genres such as poetry, historical fiction, biographies, non fiction, and classics.

I’m excited about our book list for 8th grade as it includes many books that I’ve never read myself. I think I’ll be joining in on reading many of the choices for this year.

Enjoy our giant book list for 8th grade!
