I did “Awesome books for teen girls” in October and got lists after lists of suggestions for girls. Let me just say… it wasn’t as easy for you boys. There was not as many lists out there. I really wanted to have a male perspective on the subject too, so it got drastically harder. I didn’t give up and here for you: 13 gems recommended by guys! There are sports, fantasy, mystery, real life and funny stories… a bit of everything, so assuredly something for you in there.

I know i’m not a guy myself, however I would like to add 2 books that thrilled me. They gave me the feeling it was more for a male audience.
