So You Want to Read Middle Grade?


Since I've been hosting this series, I've been thinking a lot about middle grade books. I love middle grade and when I look back on my reading, I always have loved middle grade-even before they were called middle grade! They are as popular as ever, so I thought it would be interesting to keep track of what middle grade books I was asked for while working in the library one evening. Here's what I was asked for from tweens:

-Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney
-Ivy's Ever After by Dawn Lairamore
-Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan
-Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling
-The Cupcake Diaries by Coco Simon

And some non-fiction subjects:
-Books on gaming-specifically Minecraft and Halo
-Astronomy
-The American Revolution
-Peyton Manning Biography

  1. So cool to see what books the kids are asking for. Because as writers, they are our audience.
