Middle Grade Reading Challenge 2019

The 2019 Middle Grade Reading Challenge is hosted at Becky’s Book Reviews. There are three ways to complete the challenge:

Option 1: Read six middle grade books of your choice.
Option 2: Choose one author to focus on. Perhaps read through an entire author’s work.
Option 3: Read as few as six, or as many as you like, from the checklist below
