Hi, lovelies! As I said in my top ten favorite books of 2020 post (find that here), I’m going to have a few lists other than that one. Today’s list is my favorite middle-grade books that I read last year. These are not all only 2020 releases, just books I read in 2020. I cannot stop thinking about these books or they really touched me on an emotional level, which is why they’ve made this list. I do also want to mention that there may be repeats on this list from my first favorites post, but it’s just because I really loved them.
Paola Santiago and the River of Tears by Tehlor Kay Mejia
The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan
Closer to Nowhere by Ellen Hopkins
Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi
Aru Shah and the Tree of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi
Tristan Strong Destroys the World by Kwame Mbalia
Ghost Squad by Claribel Ortega
Sal and Gabi Fix the Universe by Carlos Hernandez
Ivy Aberdeen’s Letter to the World by Ashley Herring Blake
The Deceivers by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Looking at this list, I realize I’ve mostly just read all of the books from the Rick Riordan Presents publishing imprint. I do not have a problem with that at all because they’re amazing books and I would shout about them from the rooftops if I could. So, go to your local library, borrow them from a friend, buy the ebooks, however you like to get books, get these and read them.
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
