It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for a bookish favorites post. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan over on Meeghan Reads and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
So, today we’ll talk about middle-grade books. I’m not really sure what age is covered by middle grade and since school years are very different in each country, I’m mostly winging this one. You’ll simply be getting books when I read when I was at school. 😂
#1 Tomorrow When the War began
This might be slightly above middle grade, but in Austria, school years are distributed a bit differently. So what I would consider middle grade here would be from about 10 to 14. Tomorrow When the War began would fall into that age range, at least when I started reading it. Still need to finish the series, though. 😅
Strictly speaking, I might have been slightly above middle grade when I read this one, but it is a middle-grade book. So, it’s only half-way cheating. 😉
The Inkheart trilogy is absolutely wonderful and still dear to my heart!
There is one small local bookstore we have in the village I grew up in. It’s not even just a book shop but a stationary shop with two corners full of novels. Every now and again I was allowed to root through the teen section and grab something there. One of the books I found there was Peeps and I devoured it instantaneously. You don’t even want to know what a hassle it was getting hold of the second novel. 😅
I was slightly obsessed with Charmed when I was younger. I loved the show but, guess what, there are also Charmed books! I had several of them. I’m not sure about the titles but I know one was orange, one green, and one red. I couldn’t for the life of me find those editions, the fact that back in the day I was still reading in German certainly doesn’t help. 😅 So, I’ll simply leave you with the first Charmed novel!
#5 So Little Time
Who remembers the Olsen twins?! They had this short-lived TV show called “So Little Time”. They were also a bunch of books continuing the show. I had one of those (possibly an edition that actually included two novels), though I don’t remember which one it was exactly. I even lent it to a friend once who then did a book report on it for school!
