Middle Grade Monday | A few of my favorite reads.

Middle Grade Monday is a feature started right here at Reading Nook. It's a way to share news or reviews of middle grade novels on a blog that doesn't exclusively post middle grade content. Feel free to join any time and link up.

This week I wanted to share with you some of my favorite middle grade novels. 
This is by no means a definitive list and I'm sure I forgot a ton that I ♥!
(title links bring you to their Goodreads page)

The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place - MaryRose Wood and illustrated by Jon Klassen (my review)
This whole series is just a lot of fun and I really enjoy it. 

Liesl & Po - Lauren Oliver and illustrated by Kei Acedera (my review)
I also loved The Spindlers by Lauren. She is just a great author.

The Cavendish Home for Boys & Girls - Claire Legrand and illustrated by Sarah Watts (my review)
Victoria is a fantastic character and really made this book stand out.

Ella Enchanted - Gail Carson Levine
This was one of my favorites growing up. Just a great fairy tale twist.

The Mysterious Benedict Society - Trenton Lee Stewart and illustrated by Carson Ellis
Lots of thinking and puzzles are involved with the reading of this book, which I throughly enjoy.

From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler - E.L. Konigsburg
This is a book that everyone has to read.

Wonderstruck - Brian Selznick (my review)
Also, The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Honestly Brian Selznick is simply a genius.

The Willoughbys - Lois Lowry (my review)
A really fun read.

Juniper Berry - M.P. Kozlowsky and illustrated by Erwin Madrid (my review)
A fairly creepy middle grade story with lots of good stuff in it. 

Zombie Tag - Hannah Moskowitz (my review)
I'm totally in love with Hannah and her books and this one is no exception.

A Tale Dark & Grimm - Adam Gidwitz (my review)
If you love fairy tale re-tellings, this needs to be on your list.
