Winter break has come to an end here and my children have all transitioned back to school. I thought it would be a good time to share some middle grade read. If you have a child who is a reader, or reluctant reader, then this will hopefully give them an idea for their next pick. If not, do not worry, I still love reading middle grade fiction. I enjoy picking up a book that has been a favorite for over twenty years, or finding new favorites.
What middle grade books do you enjoy?
I have read a lot of good books in 2018. According to Goodreads my average rating over 180 books was 4 stars. Since I consider 3 stars an average book, that means I have read a lot of great books this year. I plan to highlight some more of 2018's amazing reads. However, I wanted to post my top five reads of 2018.
These are not my only five star ratings. It does not mean that these books are better then the other books I read. It is just that these books stood out to me. I decided not to put them in order. I tried and could not. I cannot pick an ultimate favorite from this list. I love all five of these books for different reasons.
2018 has been a series of amazing reads. I have read so many great books by new and familiar authors. It was hard to narrow this list down to just ten books. I eventually decided to compromise and grouped books in the same series together. Technically this may make the list more than ten, but I think it counts. The books are not in a specific order. All of them received a five star review from me this year. This is not all of the five star fantasy books I read this year, but these are the ones that made the list. It was tough deciding.
