Looking for a book that can get your heart racing? Then check out some of the action packed titles here. These Action books will keep you on the edge of your seat as you follow the characters through some harrowing situations.

One of our favorite book series is listed here, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Hunger Games is a trilogy of books the first of which is being made into a movie for a 2012 release. In a future civilization, each year there is a competition called the Hunger Games. These Hunger "Games" are sometimes scary, so this title is most appropriate for a Middle School Reader.

Anthony Horowitz' series called Alex Rider about a teenage spy is another great option on this list. Creative gadgets, high speed bike chases and death defying action sequences will keep you coming back for more. This series contains nine books, three of which have graphic novel adaptations.

Or what if a plane full of babies (and not a single adult) suddenly appeared at your airport? Read the Missing Series by Margaret Peterson Haddix to find out more.

These Action books are real page turners, read a few and get ready to be transported to some high stakes action.
