So You Want to Read Middle Grade: 2014 titles to look forward to


With the holidays almost here, this will be the last So You Want to Read Middle Grade post of 2013. Don't worry-the series will be back in 2014!!

As the year wraps up, I thought it would be fun to look ahead at the coming year of middle grade. Here are just a few of the middle grade books I'm looking forward to in 2014.



Ok, full disclosure, Natalie is a friend of mine I can't wait to read her debut! 



Holly is a local author who is making her middle grade debut and I'm so excited she's writing for a younger audience this time around!



This book has a comparison to From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler-I'm sold!



And this one is being compared to The Boxcar Children. It's a perfect year for nine-year-old Sarah!



A first daughter finds the diary of Alice Roosevelt-could only be fun!





I can't wait to see what happens to Nate-my favorite aspiring Broadway star!


Father son detectives and a book that causes readers to commit crimes-sounds like a blast!



An intergalactic tale told from the point of view of an alien just seems like a wonderfully hilarious premise.



A 1930s mystery with a talking cat? Yes please!



An adventure to save his dad set in a video game-sounds awesome!

And there's no cover yet, but The Ninja Librarians by Jennifer Downey sounds like a lot of fun!


What books are you looking forward to reading in 2014?

  3. I was SO excited to see that Kody Keplinger has written a MG book! I love her YA romances and I bet she hits this one out of the park as well!

  6. There are a lot of really good MG books coming out next year! I'm looking forward to most of these, but esp. Wanderville and A Snicker of Magic! I'm also looking forward to The Only Thing Worse Than Witches and All Four Stars! :)

  7. These all sound clever and exciting. I'm especially intrigued by Under the Egg, but I'd read them all if I could.
