Ten Middle Grade Books I've Been Meaning To Read, But Haven't Yet

Happy Tuesday! This morning on Mundie Moms I shared my Ten Books I Can't Believe I Haven't Read Yet (but I will be reading this year), per my Top Ten Tuesday post. Sadly my list features some fabulous MG books that have been sitting on my bookcase of TBR books. 

Many of these are books featured in a series who's first book I loved. By sharing my list here, I'm committing myself to read these books before this summer. 
  1. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling (book 4). I am so embarrassed that this is even on my list, but maybe by mentioning it I'll finally finish reading it. My son has recently gotten into Harry Potter, and I need to read this book before he finishes it.
  2. The Unwanteds: Island of Fire and Island of Legends (books 3 & 4) by Lisa McMann. The fifth book in the series comes out today!
  3. Keeper of the Lost Cities: Exile and Everblaze (books 2 & 3) by Shannon Messenger.
  4. The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place by Maryrose Wood
  5. The School of Good and Evil by Soman Chainani,
  6. Loki's Wolves: The Blackwell Pages by Kelley Armstrong
  7. Storybound by Marissa Burt,
  8. The Land of Stories by Chris Colfer
  9. Starry River of the Sky by Grace Lin
  10. The Water Castle by Megan Frazer Blackmore
What are some MG books you've been wanting to read, but haven't had a chance to yet? 

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.
