Blogmas Day #14: The Brittany Awards Part 2 (Middle Grade)


Welcome to The Brittany Awards!

The Brittany Awards are my annual end-of-the-year lists to celebrate my favorite books of this year. Today, I will discuss my favorite middle grade books of the year. For each category, I select between 3 and 5 favorites, possibly with some honorable mentions. Here are my choices:

  • Holes by Louis Sachar

Holes (Holes, #1)

I read Holes over the summer. I’ve always enjoyed the movie, but I can’t remember reading the book, even though it seems to be a staple in elementary school classrooms. I enjoyed the movie and was happy to see how well it was adapted from the book after reading it this summer.

  • Real Friends by Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham

Real Friends (Real Friends, #1)

Real Friends is a great graphic novel. It can easily be relatable for the book’s target audience, but take older readers back to that time in their lives where friendships were constantly changing.

  • Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan

Counting by 7s

It took me awhile to get into this book, but once I did, I was completely invested in the characters and rooting for them until the very end. Counting by 7s brings so many different people together and they make kind of their own family, which was lovely to see.

What were the best middle grade books that you read this year?
