Two sisters' reviews of Young Adult and Middle Grade books, inspired by their lovely library.
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish blog. This week’s theme is Books I’d Give to Readers Who Have Never Read X (genre, author, topic, etc. — you choose!). For the X, Kate and I chose the genre of Middle Grade, because our blog has begun to lean more toward the Young Adult genre and needs some younger fiction to balance it out. I had Kate help me out a lot on this one — I haven’t even read all of them (The Egypt Game and Running Out of Time). Again, this list begins with number 10, slowly working it’s way down to number 1! Enjoy!
