So You Want to Read Middle Grade: Mr. GreenBeanSexyMan


My husband, aka, Mr. GreenBeanSexyMan just started his first year of teaching this Fall. He's teaching middle school geography. I asked him what his students were reading in school and here's what he's noticed as the most popular:


Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

-This series is standing the test of time and a new generation of readers is discovering it for the first time. It's one of the most popular choices among students.



The Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan 

-Students were excited about the most recent release in this series and it's been circulating in my classroom.


The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

-Not many of my students were as excited about this series-I'd say only about 15% of my students went to see Catching Fire over the weekend, but those that did see it were excited to talk about it and enjoy the series.

Other popular choices-

The students in my class also seem to be reading whatever is one our state book award list. I've also noticed a lot of my students reading Mike Lupica.
