Top Ten Kids/Teen Books I Want to Reread

It's Tuesday and that means Top Ten day over at The Broke and the Bookish!  Head over there and check out all the links.  You can also see my grown-up list of Top Ten Books I Want to Reread over at Book By Book.

Today's list was a fun one.  My list is a mix of older classics I read years ago and newer favorites.  So, here are my Top Ten Kids/Teen Books I Want to Reread:
  1. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling - I bet everyone has this one their list - it's just so good!
  2. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger - not technically a teen/YA book but it's about teens/YA - I read it in high school and would like to read it as an adult.
  3. The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins - so good and so much to think about.
  4. Everlost/Everwild by Neal Schusterman - love this series!
  5. The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer - fabulous book I would gladly reread.
  6. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle - even though I've read it a half dozen times - it was my childhood favorite.
  7. Any Nancy Drew books by Carolyn Keene - I keep meaning to revisit my other childhood favorites.
  8. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card - already read twice but such an amazing book.
  9. Pathfinder by Orson Scott Card - his latest and well-worth a reread, especially given its complexity.
  10. The Secret Garden by Frances Burnett - haven't read it since I was a kid.
 What favorite kids and teen/YA books would you like to reread?

I still have to read the sequels to Everlost, although I've reread Everlost twice!

The House of the Scorpion has been sitting in my TBR pile forever.

I love the Secret Garden! (:

By the way, definitely read John Green! He's one of my favorite, favorite authors.

Nice to meet you, too! (:

Great list! Ooh, I need to read that new Orson Scott Card book. One of my favorite authors. :)

I re-read The Secret Garden a couple of years back and adored it as much as an adult as I did as a kid. Maybe more. Now that I'm working on restoring my own garden, I should probably read it again.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Harry Potter and The Hunger Games are definitely on my list. :) And you've reminded me about how much I loved The Secret Garden and Nancy Drew :)

I didn't do a Top Ten list this week. I meant to but my brain is on Banned Books Week. Thanks for dropping by my blog and making comments. In answer to your question, Where's Waldo appears to have been banned for a wardrobe malfunction. In 1987 one of the people on one of the pages was sunbathing topless and a small (tiny)peek of a nipple was visible. Can you believe that anyone thought that was worth pointing out the anyone? And then, of course, it gets more attention than it ever deserved. Ha!
