Top Ten Kids/Teen Books on My Spring TBR List

It's Tuesday and that means it's Top Ten day over at The Broke and the Bookish. Today's topic? Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR List! I actually made two Top Ten lists, one here and one for grown-up books over at Book By Book. I probably won't manage to read all 20 this spring, but it gives me something to shoot for! These were easy lists to make because I have soooo many books waiting to be read on TBR shelves, in piles, and in baskets!

Top Ten Kids/Teen Books on My Spring TBR List:
  • The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann, a middle-grade novel by one of my favorite authors. This one has been on my TBR pile for a looong time!
  • Ruins by Orson Scott Card, sequel to Pathfinder, our whole family is loving this series!
  • The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm by Nancy Farmer, another favorite author at our house.
  • Turnabout by Margaret Peterson Haddix, one of several of hers in my TBR pile.
  • Flyaway by Lucy Christopher, another long-time resident of the TBR pile.
  • The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater, because I loved her Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy.
  • Infinity Ring, Book 1 - A Mutiny in Time by James Dashner, a new series I keep meaning to try.
  • Lucky for Good by Susan Patron, because I loved the rest of the series.
  • The Danger Box by Blue Balliett, another one I've been meaning to read for a while.
  • The Romeo and Juliet Code by Phoebe Stone, patiently waiting to be read...
What books are you looking forward to reading this spring?

Somehow I missed the new series by Orson Scott Card and now a second book is out. Eek. I also didn't know that Lucy Christopher had a second book out after Stolen, which I love. And Jame Dashner has a new series? Where have I been. I recommended that my book club read A Light Between Oceans because of your rave review. And, of course, you know that I am a huge Maggie Stiefvater fan and think you will really enjoy Scorpio Races. Listen to at least part of it on audiobook. Delightful!

That's funny, Anne - I am reading Stolen right now! I was surprised to see that Flyaway is also by her - it's not a new release - it's been in my MG/teen TBR pile for ages!
