2011 Mundie Moms Favorites: Middle Grade Reads

With the end of 2011 being tomorrow, I wanted to save our last two posts for our all time favorites of 2011. Today's post is my 2011 Favorite Middle Grade Reads. For those of you that don't know, I also have a children's book review blog, Mundie Kids. You can find all of our middle grade and children's book reviews on there. Some of my favorite reviews from there are also spot lighted here on Mundie Moms.

This year there I had the privilege of reading a number of fantastic middle grade releases! I narrowed my list down to my Top 11 Favorite Middle Grade Reads to:

  1. The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens
  2. Wildwood by Colin Meloy
  3. Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu
  4. The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann
  5. Liesel & Po by Lauren Oliver
  6. The Secret War by Matt Myklusch
  7. The Familiars, Secrets of the Crown by Adam Jay Epstein & Andrea Jacobson
