How to get into middle grade books

I love middle grade, they are such fun books and they really deserve some more love. A lot of grownups look down on middle grade because it's for children.

A few years ago I read the Archived by Victoria Schwab and fell in love with her writing. Ok, the story was amazing as well, but her writing really delivered it!

Children’s Book Sunday: The Day the Crayons Came Home by Drew Daywalt

Well, I thought the Day the Crayons Quit was my favourite picture book of the year, this year, but I was wrong. The second book in the series is even BETTER! As you can tell, this book is in Dutch, so I had to google a few things about it that were different than the… Continue reading Children’s Book Sunday: The Day the Crayons Came Home by Drew Daywalt
