2021 Reading Recommendations: 9th and 10th Grade


These are new and recent suggestions for 9th and 10th 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. Books on this reading list may contain more mature topics than those on the younger reading lists. For more options, check out the 2019 list and the 2020 list



**CLICK on the cover image to be linked to the book on the Sora reading app (login with NYCDOE username & password) & see the book description** 

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.
