Summer Reading Instructions for Students Entering Grade 8

Summer Reading Expectations for Students Entering Grade 8 Summer graphic

  1. Students should choose one title from the “Entering Grade 8” reading list on the library website (book choices are listed below)

  2. Print out a copy of the Grade 8 ELA Summer Reading Log.

  3. Fill out the title and author information for your book. Complete the reading log each day that you read. Be sure to include the pages you read and get an adult signature to sign off on your reading.  

  4. When you finish your book, answer the reflection questions on the last page of the Grade 8 ELA Summer Reading Log in complete sentences.  


  • We welcome students to read multiple titles from the list but additional reading logs are not required.​
  • We strongly advise parents/guardians to preview the content and summaries of the book options before their child chooses one to read. This will help families work together to choose a book that best fits the student’s interests, reading level, and maturity level.
  • The book titles listed below are all available in print, eBook or audiobook, book on CD, and on occasion, portable media player (Playaway) at the public library.
  • Please note that while it is not possible for your child’s teacher to have read a majority of the books on the lists we’ve provided, the selections have been vetted by well-respected panels of library media specialists and preteen/adolescent educators.
