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.
