Marvelous Middle Grade Monday (and more blogging break)

Turns out I'm sort of loving my summer blogging break, so I'm going to elongate it -- through the rest of the summer (other than this week). Life if busy but fun with two teenagers, one husband, and one big dog, and summer's short here in Minnesota, so I'm eating up every minute.

I have been reading though, because, let's face it, it's an awesome excuse to soak in some sun. Some of my favorite middle grade reads this summer are these. I'd love to share more about them (and maybe I will one day), but for now, trust me when I say they are marvelous.




Enjoy the rest of your summer. I'll be back in September.

  7. Yay for summer blogging breaks, and for lots of good middle grade reading! I have heard great things about TGGH--but the other two are new to me. More for the TBR pile!

  8. I hadn't come across Here Lies Linc (the other two are read, or in the TBR pile!) and find that cover plus title very intriguing. :) Enjoy your summer break!

  9. I bought a nice comfy Adirondack chair back in the spring, and I'm loving sitting outside and reading while the kidlet runs around and chases bubbles(investing in a bubble maker has been a life saver on my lungs, lol). So, yes, there's nothing like summer reading!

  13. Happy summer to you! School starts here in two weeks so we're trying to get back in the swing of things. I simultaneously desire and fear the end of summer.

  14. Enjoy your break. I'm thinking I should take a break one of these days. I love the cover of Here Lies Linc. I'm going to add that one to my staggering TBR list.

  17. Real life is great, isn't it? It's so hard to sacrifice it for hours spend pounding the keys and skimming somewhat useful information. ;)

  18. I haven't read any of these- but they each look good.

    Hope you have been having a wonderful summer. The break sounds delightful!
