60/60 Reading Update for 2021

10 Middle Grade Books I Want to Read in 2021

This year, I decided to try a scaling reading goal, adjusting my Goodreads tracker up by another 10 books whenever I’m able to complete the current challenge.

To date, I’ve read over 60 books, so my new goal is set to 70. Per tradition, I’m featuring another stack of books I’d love to read in the near future.

10 Middle Grade Books I Want to Read in 2021
Coraline by Neil Gaiman

Coraline by Neil Gaiman

I’m slightly embarrassed to admit I’ve never read OR watched Coraline… yeah. I know. This Spooky Season, I’m making sure it’s on the top of my scary stories pile.

The Unforgettable Logan Foster by Shawn Peters

The Unforgettable Logan Foster by Shawn Peters

What happens when a foster kid with an eidetic memory discovers his caretakers are superheroes? I can’t wait to find out! Many thanks to the author for providing me with a review copy.

Welcome to Dweeb Club by Betsy Uhrig

Welcome to Dweeb Club by Betsy Uhrig

I absolutely HAD to sign up for Dweeb Club when it became available through an ARC swap group. I’ve heard fantastic things about this comedic adventure, featuring a middle school club who find themselves caught up in a mystery.

The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise by Dan Gemeinhart

The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise by Dan Gemeinhart

This year seems to be my “read that book everyone keeps telling you to try” side quest. I’m not sure what’s keeping me from reading The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise other than, perhaps, a tendency to squirrel away books I know I’ll like for when I REALLY need them.

The Midwinter Witch by Molly Knox Ostertag

The Midwinter Witch by Molly Knox Ostertag

I had a great time reading the first two books in this graphic novel series by Molly Knox Ostertag during Book A Day May. I’m excited to see what happens to Aster and Co. next! Something tells me it’s going to be ominous.

The House with Chicken Legs by Sophie Anderson

The House with Chicken Legs by Sophie Anderson

I’m super curious to read a story inspired by Baba Yaga. I’m hoping this will deliver all the sweet, offbeat, folklore-saturated, wonderfully witchy vibes that the cover is giving me.

The Okay Witch by Emma Steinkellner

The Okay Witch by Emma Steinkellner

Did I mention I wanted to conjure up all the witchy vibes this autumn? This one features smalltown secrets, a talking cat, and out of control magic.

Takedown by Laura Shovan

Takedown by Laura Shovan

I rarely go for a sports story, but the premise of a girl in wrestling is particularly fascinating, and I enjoyed the co-authored title, A Place at the Table so much, I have faith Takedown will be worth stepping out of my comfort zone for.

5Worlds: The Sand Warrior by Mark Siegel, Alexis Siegel, Xanthe Bouma, Matt Rockefeller, & Boya Sun

The Sand Warrior by Mark Siegel, Alexis Siegel, Xanthe Bouma, Matt Rockefeller, & Boya Sun

This save-the-world adventure looks like an exciting dive into sci-fantasy. I’m interested to see how the collaborative effort of these graphic novelists comes together!

Skellig by David Almond

Skellig by David Almond

This is one of those books that pops into conversations between myself and my avid-bookworm-mom a lot. Stories that stick with you like that have to be good, and knowing her impeccable taste, I’m sure this one is!
