Middle Grade Books My Daughter has Enjoyed

MIDDLE GRADE BOOKS my daughter has enjoyed this summer

I am excited to start sharing some kids book lists here. I used to do this a lot over on my homeschool site but it just makes sense to have all the book lists in one place.

Over time I may end up going back and even bringing in some of the more popular book lists from my homeschool site . . . or I’ll just stick to making new ones, only time will tell!

Today I am kicking things off by sharing five books my almost-seventh-grade daughter has loved so far this summer. A few of these are re-reads for her (which is great, she’s big on re-reading her favorite books) and some of them were new to her!

If you have suggestions for her, please leave them in the comments!

And in case you missed it last week, here’s a list of books I want her to read in her seventh grade year.
