Tuesday Top Ten: My Favorite Sunshine State Books Ever

In case you don’t know what Sunshine State books are, they’re a list of 15 books chosen by media specialists throughout the state of Florida.  Every year there are 15 new books on the Sunshine State list. Its pretty much a list of recommended titles for middle schoolers.  I’ve been reading them for the past few years.

I didn’t post yesterday, because my day was pretty busy.  So, this week it’s actually a Wednesday Top Ten. I’ve mentioned some of the titles before (because they’re that good!) so you know that I highly recommend them if they’re also on this list.

Princess Academy by Shannon Hale (LOVE!!!)

Hot, Sour, Salty, Sweet by Sherri L. Smith (Cute)

Mercy on These Teenage Chimps by Gary Soto (hilarious)

Kingdom Keepers by Ridley Pearson (fun)

Found by Margaret Peterson Haddix (intriguing)

Schooled by Gordon Korman (cute)

The Sacrifice by Kathleen Benner Duble (historical fiction!)

Shakespeare’s Secret by Elise Broach (National Treasure-ish)

Rules by Cynthia Lord (really good story)

Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins (soo good!)
