THE BOY WHO KNEW TOO MUCH
The Boy Who Knew Too Much is a really fun, short mystery with some really cool plot elements and interesting characters! There is a second book in this series but what I love about this is, you can totally read it as a standalone, which is something I really love about middle-grade books.
This is a really fun story about a few smart rebel kids set in a school academy for younger kids. It’s a tonne of fun to read and great to read with your kids, or just pick up by yourself.
THE GOLDEN DOOR
If you’ve been following me and my blog for any length of time then you know that I love The Golden Door. This is one of my favourite trilogies of all time, but really you could probably read this as a standalone by itself, not everything is summed up because there are two other books, but it does have a pretty solid ending to the first book’s journey.
I love this book and I am constantly recommending it, it’s a really inventive and unique story with really interesting creatures and overarching series plot (it honestly blows me away on every re-read).
Harry Potter is a classic and even though J. K. Rowling seems hell-bent on ruining my views on the series I still love it. I really enjoy how the fandom’s headcanons have evolved over the years and I love seeing new HP conspiracies. I don’t know though, at this point, if I love the ideas behind HP and the nostalgia, or if I actually love the books.
At this point, I’ve come to terms with the fact that this series is mostly a 3 star series but I think nostalgia is really keeping it alive for me.
Percy Jackson is brilliant. This series/world is a great combination of humour, character development & mythology. The series is really inventive and also a really easy way to subtly learn more about different types of mythology. The main series, Percy Jackson is about the main character learning Greek Mythology and basically being thrust into a totally new world. The other series in this “world” focus on Greek, Roman, Norse and Egyptian mythology which I also love!
What I also love about this series and the rest of Rick Riordan’s book is that they’re appropriate for all ages and are just total fun to read!
CLEARLY THERE AREN’T ENOUGH MIDDLE-GRADE READS ON MY SHELF, DO YOU HAVE ANY RECOMMENDATIONS?
