Have any Littens read this Alex Rider series and would you recommend it for a 12 year old? I am hesitant after reading a librarian review in Goodreads and The Common Sense Media review.

ljuliel I‘m not familiar with it but I think it‘d depend on the kid. Some kids are mentally a bit older than their age sometimes. I never regulated what our kids read. I allowed them to read whatever they wanted to but everyone does things differently. 2mo
Emilymdxn I think I started it and didn‘t finish it when I was around that age, my best friend and my cousin both read and liked it when we were in early secondary school so around then? I don‘t know that much about it‘s content tho, it didn‘t interest me much at the time 2mo
TracyReadsBooks We have this series in our library and it‘s definitely popular with our middle school kids. I read the first couple of books and don‘t remember anything problematic standing out. I am very much a let kids read whatever will get them reading kind of person, however and that isn‘t everyone. (edited) 2mo

Nebklvr This series and the Cherub series by Muchamore are both great for spy books for that inbetween stage 2mo
JacqMac My oldest read it when he was around 10. He really liked it. I‘m also a let them read what interests them person, like @TracyReadsBooks 2mo
DuckOfDoom Me and my brother devoured them around age 10-12. Don't remember much about them now, but there are a lot of books, so we were entertained for quite a while 2mo
Tamra @ljuliel @Emilymdxn @TracyReadsBooks @Nebklvr @JacqMac @DuckOfDoom Thank you for the input! Turns out he had already tried this one and bailed. 🙄 Welcome to my world. It seems he prefers humor. So of course he likes the Wimpy Kid and James Patterson middle school books. Any suggestions I‘m not aware of? (edited) 2mo
TracyReadsBooks Beside the always reliable Rick Riodan, I might suggest the Ungifted series by Gordon Korman, The Zombie Chasers series by John Kloepfer, Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians series by Brandon Sanderson, Big Nate series by Lincoln Pierce, My Life as a Stuntboy series by Janet Tashjian, The Sisters Grimm series by Michael Buckley, Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull, and maybe even The Last Kids on Earth series by Max Brallier. (edited) 2mo
Tamra @TracyReadsBooks thank you, thank you! I just picked up the first Ungifted book yesterday. 😁 2mo

Still not digging this, but trying to finish it anyway for a student I mentor. I‘ll make him read two more chapters and I think he‘ll start enjoying it after?

Reading for work, for one of the kids I mentor, and not loving it but he seemed to enjoy it so I‘m determined to finish it by next time I see him.

LibrarianRyan I felt the same way about this book. 3mo

I thought this series was done. It has had multiple covers. It changed at cover one from Top right to the left cover. And I believe it was last year we got book 11 which switched styles to the botto. Right cover.

This is one of those YA series that grows with the reader so book one and maybe book 2 are okay, but as you get further in the series they become #notappropriatefor middle grade

I liked the back story of the main character. I don‘t plan on reading any more of the Alex Rider series (unless I run out of books on vacation again), but this one was entertaining. More of a 3.5 stars situation, but I like to round up😊.

Needed a book for a long flight, so picked up my 10 year old son‘s book😊. Felt like I was reading a book about Jason Bourne as a 14 year old with over the top action. I felt that it was over the top, but my son loved it.

Ericalambbrown Fourteen year old Jason Bourne 🤣😂 That‘s awesome! 7mo

Adored these books growing up (though I seem to have misplaced one). I'll admit it was only recently when a friend pointed it out to me, that I realised the pun in Sabina Pleasure's name though 🙈

My latest spy craze has me once again reeling for more! I‘ve been obsessed with James Bond my whole life and the young Alex Rider series only adds to the espionage addiction.
