2021 Reading Recommendations: 6th Grade


These are new and recent suggestions for 6th grade reading based on my own reading as well as research and reviews. Please note: Grade levels are just suggestive; all books should be chosen according to student interest. These books are appropriate for all students grades 5+. For more options, check out the 2019 list and the 2020 list

All links are for e-books; however, in many cases the audiobook will also be available and is noted at the bottom of the description on Sora.
