    Anticipated Middle Grade Releases: June-December 2021

    At the beginning of the year I shared a list of middle grade books releasing for the first few months of the year and now I wanted to do a new list for books releasing in the second half of the year! I really like middle grade books as an adult which I think is a good thing because then I can proof-read a lot of books for my kids. There are a number of books coming out in the next few months that are a continuation of a series and I’m doubly excited about most of these because they are in series that I’ve really been enjoying. Before we…

    GRADE 6 BOOK LIST – middle grade books I’m recommending my 6th grader read in our homeschool

    Every year I like to make a book list for my kids. Not really required reads but highly recommended reads. I am excited about this list for my daughter who will be going into grade six in the fall because I enjoy middle grade books and have read most of them on this list and think she’ll really enjoy them! She prefers fantasy and mystery stories but also likes a hard hitting story from time to time. Actually, I think I’m doing pretty well with this list because she’s already snuck a few off my pile and read and enjoyed them. If you have other books to add to this…

    12 of the Best Middle Grade Releases 2021: March – June

    There are so many good sounding books coming out this year! I keep thinking I’ve heard of them all when new ones are announced. There are lots of middle grade books being released from March through to June but these are ones that I’ve heard about and are currently on my radar. It’s not an exhaustive list by any means. I shared a list of books coming out from January through to March already. And then I saw more March releases so I have added them to this list. Are there some middle grade books you know of coming out in the next few months that sound good? Let me know so…

    14 Great Novels for Middle Grade

    A couple times a year I like to make a list of the books my kids have each been reading in the last few months. Today I’m going to share some great middle grade books. These are some that my daughter, who is in grade five, has been enjoying lately. Some of these she’s on to the second, third or fourth book in the series already but I’ll just share the info for book one since it doesn’t make sense to share about books that are later in the series. I think these books would be good for most kids from grade four through six (and up, honestly, I’m an…

    Anticipated Middle Grade Releases in 2021: January-March

    For the first time this year I am paying attention to release dates of new books. I am blaming it on the fact that for the last year I have been in the depths of BookTube sharing about what I’ve been reading and hearing about the books everyone else is excited about. I shared on my YouTube channel about some of the books I am excited to read in the first bit of this year and I thought it would be fun to make a list of solely middle grade books that are coming out this year that I am excited about. Obviously I’ve never read any of these books…
