MIDDLE GRADE: In the News 8/16/18

Here are a few news and special feature articles I’ve enjoyed recently (If you missed any of the previous posts click here to see them all):

  1. Here’s a list  books for those types of adults who are a little embarrassed to read anything off the MG shelf. It’s 8 Middle-Grade Books Every Adult Should Consider Reading in Secret.
  2. Critically acclaimed MG and YA author, Judy Blume wants to know which of her books should be made into a movie.
  3. Here’s another nice list of 25 middle grade books that have received a starred review in the past year and a half. Great for the teacher or student looking for suggestions.

That’s all for now. I’ll be back Friday with a special guest feature.

  1. Wow. Great to see Wonder, After Eli, and Glory Be on the list of MG books that adults should read. I couldn’t agree more. I had to order The Dead Father’s Club. C’mon. Based on Hamlet? Must have. I think quite a lot of Judy Blume’s books should be movies. I can’t pick one. I have read only a couple books on the starred review list. So much work to do! Thanks for another interesting post.

  2. Who is going to know you’re reading a MG title — just take off the cover. It is a great way for adults to learn what their teens are reading and learn a great historical fiction stories. Great suggestions, Am on the list to read Betty Before X.
