So now I’m in the midst of revising my middle-grade novel after receiving my edit letter from my agent. If you know me, you already know that I have my spreadsheet of existing scenes and a list of all the new scenes that I need to write for this revision.
I also have delved back into the world of middle-grade fiction. For a couple of years, I’ve been reading mostly YA novels but since I’m now back to writing middle-grade, I thought I would start back reading books for this age group.
Here’s my reading list. If you have any middle-grade books that you would like to recommend, let me know!
As Brave As You by Jason Reynolds
Counting by 7s by Holly Goldbery Sloan
Counting Thyme by Melanie Conklin
Crazy in Alabama by Rita Williams-Garcia
Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper
The Remarkable Journey of Charlie Price by Jennifer Maschari
Rules for Stealing Stars by Corey Ann Haydu
Some Kind of Happiness by Claire Legrand
The Secret Tree by Natalie Standiford
