Waiting to be Read Wednesday #1

There are a ton of fabulous MG books out there and there's quite a few that are spilling over on my bookcases. I thought it would be fun to switch things up a bit and feature books that I've got on my shelves that are Waiting to be Read. 

Today's feature is the Knightley Academy series by Violet Haberdasher. I've heard nothing but great things about these books, and they're next up on my list of books to read.

Henry Grim is a servant boy at the Midsummer School—until he passes the elite Knightley Academy exam and suddenly finds himself one of the first commoners at the Academy, studying alongside the cleverest and bravest—and most arrogant—young aristocrats in the country. They thwart Henry’s efforts to become a full-fledged Knight of the Realm, but he and two commoner classmates are determined to succeed. In the process, the boys uncover a conspiracy that violates the Hundred Years’ Peace treaty—and could lead to war! Can Henry manage to save his school and country from their enemies—and continue to study at the Academy? -quoted from Goodreads

This series sounds like the perfect summer read for kids! What's a MG book you're waiting to read?
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
