Top 10 Tuesday: Middle Grade Episodes of the All The Wonders Podcast

November 7, 2017

I don't get a chance to read a whole lot of middle grade novels. I'm a terribly slow reader and often rely on access to audiobooks in order to keep on top of my middle grade TBR pile (you may have heard my MG book reviews at the start of recent All The Wonders podcast episodes thanks, in part, to Audible). I tend to be very selective and rely heavily on the recommendations of friends. But my word do I love a good MG read!


I'm celebrating 400 episodes of All The Wonders: The Children's Book Podcast  by sharing the top episodes across the history of the show. Check out my Top 10 Picture Book Episodes HERE and my Top 10 Graphic Novel Episodes HERE. And now we've come to Middle Grade! 


I've linked to all of the books and the podcast episodes below. If one of these books missed your radar, why not try it out? If one of these bookmakers has caught your attention, why not listen as they share the story behind the book? And if one of your favorite episodes didn't make the Top Ten, why not share it in the comments below to let others know what episodes they should be sure not to miss?


Bring this list to your local library or independent bookstore and add your own favorites in the comments below!
