Hey y’all! Today I wanted to do a list of middle grade book series that I want to continue. I absolutely love middle grade and I have some series that I really want to get read as soon as possible. Here is my list of middle grade books that I want to finish.
Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor – This African inspired fantasy features a girl with albinism who is overcoming so much. She has special powers that she is just discovering. The story was so captivating and I can’t believe that I haven’t continued with this series.
Prandava Quartet by Roshani Chokshi – I loved this story so much! Aru Shah inadvertently releases a death god and has to go on an adventure to stop him from destroying the world. The characters are so cute and the Hindu mythology is super interesting. I fully plan to continue in this series very soon. (Stay tuned)
Greenglass House by Kate Milford – I have a full review of this book. Milo was such a good character and the mystery in the story was so interesting and fun. I just saw that this series has four books and I’m gonna need to read all of them!
Track series by Jason Reynolds – Y’all this dealt with so much in such a short time and I really enjoyed all of it. Watching Ghost figure things out with his not great home life and fighting his internal anger was so great. I can’t wait to read the other three books in the series. Each additional book follows a different character on the track team and each had such a compelling story, that I want to know more about them.
Cogheart by Peter Bunzl – This was surprisingly dark for a middle grade but it was so much fun. Lily’s father is presumed dead and she must move in with a mean lady who is to be her caretaker. Through a series of events, she ends up on an adventure with a boy from town and one of her father’s inventions to find out what really happened to her father. This was such a fun read and I can’t wait to read the other four books in the series.
The Wizards of Once by Cressida Cowell – This was such a nonsensical story. The Wizards and the Warriors are at odds in this world but when a wizard prince and a warrior princess meet up, they must work together to try to resolve some differences. I have a full review for this book and I can’t wait to get to the additional books in the series. Also, the illustrations in this one are so fun.
These are the top middle grade series that I really want to catch up on or complete soon. I’ve definitely been in the mood for something fun and that doesn’t take much brain power for me.
