The main purpose of this study is to determine prospective teachers' metacognitive awareness levels of reading strategies. A quantitative surve method was used. Participants consisted of 150 prospective primary teachers and 150 prospective Turkish language teachers from Necmettin Erbakan University in Turkey. The data were collected through "Metacognitive Awareness of Reading Strategies Inventory" during the spring semester of the 2014-2015 academic year. Results show that prospective teachers' "global reading" and "problem solving strategies" levels are high while their "support reading strategies" level is medium. Female participants' metacognitive awareness level was found to be higher compared to males. Prospective Turkish language teachers' problem solving strategies level is higher than that of prospective primary teachers. Prospective primary teachers preferred "historical and psychological" books more while prospective Turkish Language teachers favoured all types of books equally. The metacognitive awareness levels of participants reading book "everyday" and "sometimes" are significantly higher than those of reading book "never".
