There are so many middle-grade books that I’m really looking forward to reading in 2021. A few of those on my list, I’ve been able to read an early copy of, but will be buying the physical copy as I love to be able to add books to my class library.
I’ve been lucky enough to read an early copy of A Tangle of Spells and The Shark Caller which are both fantastic reads. I’ve also been approved to read an e-ARC of The Dragon and her Boy. Murder on the Safari Star is series I’m eager to continue. I’ve loved reading the Who Let the Gods Out? series by Maz Evans, so am really looking forward to her new book, Vi Spy Licence to Chill. I’ve chosen the others as I’ve seen them recommended by other authors and bloggers, and feel I will definitely enjoy them. I’m just about to start The Ocean Squid Explorers’ Club which I’m so excited to read as I loved the first three books in The Polar Bear Explorers’ Club.
I was sent a sample of The Dog that Saved the World and was hooked, so am really looking forward to reading the complete book. I have been lucky enough to read an e-ARC of The Weather Weaver and really enjoyed it. I have an e-ARC of Mort the Meek and Dragon Legend, both of which I’m really looking forward to reading. The Magicians Map, Picklewitch & Jack and the Sea Wizard’s Secret, Dragon Legend, Starfell Willow Moss and the Vanishing Kingdom, The Storm Keepers’ Battle and Orphans of the Shipwreck Island are all books in series that I’ve loved, so I’m very excited to continue them. I absolutely loved Elle McNicholl’s A Kind of Spark last year, so am really excited to read her next book, Show Us Who You Are.
I’ve been lucky enough to have e-ARCS or physical proof copies of Everyday Magic, The Strangeworlds Travel Agency The Edge of the Ocean, The Abbey Mystery and The Incredible Record Smashers, so I’ll be reading and posting my reviews before publication. Skin Taker and Agent Zaiba Investigates The Haunted House are both continuations of series I’ve really enjoyed. Featherlight, Starboard and Harley Hitch and the Iron Forest are new books by authors whose books I adore, so I’m sure I’ll enjoy these too!
There you have it! 31 middle-grade books that I’m aiming to add to my bookshelves during February, March and April. Have you already read any of these? Have you any recommendations that you think I’d enjoy?
