middle grade in march

Sunday, March 4, 2012 |
This month I’ll be focusing on middle grade (MG) books. Why? Well, they’re awesome. But also, Jill at the O.W.L. is hosting the March of the Middle Grade, featuring daily posts by middle grade authors and bloggers. I contributed a guest blog for The O.W.L. (which I will direct you to in due time), and I’ve also put together a number of posts for Adventures of Cecelia Bedelia – reviews, giveaways, and an author interview. Did I mention that MG is my new love?

Calendar:


If you want to check out EVEN MORE middle grade goodness, Novel Novice is also hosting a Middle Grade March. And remember to check out the opening post at The O.W.L. – Jill is hosting an awesome giveaway. Let’s go middle grade!

I love that you have your own MG March going on over here! It seems like MG has been getting a ton more positive attention lately - which it absolutely deserves! I'll be looking forward to your guest post at The OWL :)

I've just finished The Apothecary by Maile Meloy and it is really wonderful. Am now reading Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and The Unforgettable Coat. All three are MG. And I didn't even know this was going on! I've never been so fond of YA books. They so often are issue oriented whereas the younger books just tell plain good stories. I like MG. Is that new? I've always known this as 'juvenile.'

Nan: I have The Apothecary on my list of 'frozen' holds at the library (and I'm glad to hear you liked it!). I'll get to it eventually...

Books for young readers have been separated by age appropriateness recently (YA, MG, Childrens) - but in my day, middle grade would have been shelved in with the 'Juvenile,' too. When I go back to my favorite classics and fantasy, a lot of it is MG. And that's okay with me!

Oh, good. Sounds like a great month to get titles to suggest to my daughter.
