Top Ten Tuesday: Books For My Younger Middle-Grade Self
I’m linking up today with That Artsy Reader Girl: Top Ten Tuesday: Books For My Younger Self
Is there a book you’ve read that you know you would have enjoyed when you were younger?
As an adult, I love Middle-Grade books, and I wish that the following ten middle-grade titles had been available for my younger self! (I could list more, but these came first to mind.)
What Middle-Grade books have you read that you know your younger self would have enjoyed?
One of the book series I enjoyed when I was younger was The Bobbsey Twins. This is an old copy I acquired. While some youngsters like stories about animals, adventure, or fantasy, I remember loving stories about family. Even today, I love a wonderful multi-generational family drama like A Place For Us.
I certainly wish there was more diversity available in reading material for my younger middle-grade self!

The story is inspired by Jane Austen‘s writing.
