Goodreads "Best Books for Reluctant Readers"

"Books that really draw the reader in and encourage youngsters to read." (Goodreads)
Dear List Challengers, I'm sure the title doesn't apply to you personally, but you should enjoy this list nevertheless. BTW, I can't fathom why "The Witches" is ranked ahead of "Matilda", and by such a large margin. Only books with at least 3,000 ratings were included.
