Book Lists: Holiday Gift Guide (Middle Grade Edition)

Hope your holiday season is going well, friends! I’ve had this idea for a blog series since November, but didn’t have a chance to work on it until this month. As a result, this might be the only holiday gift guide post you see. It really depends on how stressed I get as Christmas inches closer. I really wanted to put out this particular one as I’ve mentioned before how much I adore middle grade books. So if you are looking for book recommendations catered to the middle graders in your life, this is the post for you. I’ve divided this list into genres and have also included a young adult section as many older middle schoolers are ready to jump into an older age reading group and I think these books would be the perfect fit.
