Summer Reading: Seventh & Eighth Grades

a list of books for ages 2 through 14.

Summer Reading Challenge (St. Thomas Middle School)

This year we will be reading eighteen books, for seventh and eighth graders, all eighteen can be your choice! You can read alone or with someone else, a paper book or on an e-reader, you can also listen to the books. The key is having fun and logging the books you read via a brief book review via Biblionasium (Dr. DeLap will set up the account for you, just send her an email). 

All 18 books must be read and reviews logged in Biblionasium by September 3, 2018. The deadline has been moved up in order to make space for other library programs. Challenge participants and finishers will celebrate with a special event in Fall 2018. 

You can find other book suggestions on the STS Summer Reading Home page.
