In the Middle Reading Challenge

Jill at The O.W.L. came up with a great challenge idea. We focus a lot on YA, so she's hosting a middle grade reading challenge. The goal is to read middle grade books throughout the year. I'm going to try and read ten, which is the top level for the challenge. I think I can do it, since I try to keep up with tween reads as well as YA.

I'm not sure what books I'll be adding to the challenge, but I know I'll be starting with The Blue Shoe: A tale of thievery, villainy, sorcery, and shoes by Roderick Townley. (Isn't that a great title?)


  1. That is a great title! Can't wait to start this new challenge.

  2. I read more YA than MG, but I want to change that this year. I do enjoy both.

  3. I have that book in my TBR pile! Can't wait to hear your thoughts.

    Thanks for joining the challenge!

  4. Ooo, thank you for the link the the MG reading challenge. Not sure if I will officially sign up, but I have been thinking that I ought to read more MG. It seems, like you said, that a lot of the online chatter is focused on YA, and so I hear so much about wonderful YA that that's what I end up reading...


I love hearing from other readers! Share your thoughts and chime in!
