My ds just finished the Harry Potter series and is working on Chronicles of Narnia and waiting on the 1st Hunger Games. What other books would you recommend?

He might like the books by Anthony Horowitz. I forget what the series is called, but they are basically spy novels for young adults.

Re: book recs for 11 yr old boy

Redwall series
Jerry Spinelli books (I really liked Maniac McGee)
Tolkien (long read, but I was that age when I read them for the first time)
Louis L'Amour (if you think he'd like Westerns)
Tom Swift books (these are older books, but my husband loved them when he was young)

The Warriors cat series (DH and I also like these!) and Everworld series (by the writer of Animorphs) are huge hits around here.
