Bookish Tuesday: Top 10 2014 Releases I Meant to Read But Didn’t Get To

by Stacey

This Tuesday, I am going to look at the Broke and Bookish Top 10 Tuesday through a middle grade lens. The topic is for the week is Top 10 2014 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn’t Get To. When I think of all the genres that I read, interestingly, middle grade is the one that seems to get chosen last. I say interestingly because whenever I read a middle grade book I tend to love it (Hello, Fish in a Tree!) so I’m not so sure why this happens but it does.

So today will feature all the middle grade books that I have heard were wonderful. Many of them are in our house because I bought them for either myself or Caroline. Some of them Caroline has read; some not. Hopefully, we will both cross these titles off our To-Be-Read Lists in 2015.

    I love the idea of blogging about books you should have read or meant to read or heard were good–my list of books I’ve read ABOUT is a zillion times longer than the list of books I’ve actually read. I’ll hang onto this list for next time I need to find a book for my own middle-graders.
