What Kids' Books Are You Reading?

Sorry, no Marvelous Middle Grade Monday for me today. It seems I've been reading more YA than MG lately. Here's a peek at my TBR pile:

A Curse as Dark as Gold by Elizabeth Bunce

The Boy Project by Kami Kinard

 Love, Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

The Hunchback Assignments by Arthur Slade

 What are you reading? Do you have any recommendations for me?


  1. Oh, I think you're going to love A Curse Dark as Gold. I read it recently and am going to blog on it tomorrow.

    I just finished A Fault in Our Stars by John Green, and am about to start A Million Suns by Beth Revis.

    1. I enjoyed A Fault in Our Stars! I recently read A Million Suns, too. It sounds like we enjoy the same kinds of books.

  2. I want to read Elizabeth Bunce's other books after reading A Curse Dark as Gold. I just finished Insurgent and loved it. And am starting Rock of Ivanhoe.

  3. Loved A Curse Dark as Gold! (Then again, I'm lunch buddies with the author so I may be a wee bit prejudice. lol) I was going to recommend The Fault in Our Stars too. Just finished it and wept like a baby. Really wonderful.

  4. i really dug 'under the never sky' by veronica rossi.

    'wonder' is a middle grade book i highly recommend - i think a ya audience would be into it because there are quite a few teen characters.

  5. I love finding books that fit that middle ground between MG and YA because some readers transition from MG to YA differently than others. Heart of a Samurai and War & Watermelon (which I reviewed today) are two that fit this category well. Okay for Now definitely does too.

  6. Funny, I'm doing the opposite of you this month--reading Cold Cereal.
