My Favorite Books From Every Year I’ve Been Alive

This is my very first post.  This website is only about reading middle grade books–my favorite.   Middle grade books are reads read by grades 3 through 8. My first post is about my favorite books from every year I’ve been alive. I had one condition.  The books had to be middle grade books.  It took a lot of research and a lot of time to create this post. I got the inspiration to do my first post from Brandy’s blog called Random Musings of a Bibliophile.

    I really enjoyed your list. I’ve read many of your favorites and would count them among my favorites. Your list does make me wonder what I would put on my own list of favorites by year. One thing for sure, my list would be longer because I’ve been reading for quite a few more years! 🙂

    Love, Aubrey is one my students read in literature circles every year. I love many of these, but I think I am much further behind in getting through my TBR pile. Your 2016 list is almost an exact copy of my favorites–with the exception of Ms. Bixby’s Last Day and When Friendship Followed Me Home–lent that to my avid readers who finished fifth grade.
