Book recs?

It’s that time of year. Gift buying time. So what do you buy for a 8 year old girl who devours books as quickly as her Halloween candy stash? MORE BOOKS!!! So, here’s my question. What’s your go to book for the mid grade age (well, some YA as well)? She’s gone through Dahl, and is reading The Warriors series. She’s tried all sorts of dragon books, and Choose Your Own Adventures.  I need something out of the box.  What do you think?




Also, don’t forget to enter the rafflecopter giveaway for a chance to win one of two prizes; a gift basket or an Amazon gift card.

  1. Eva Ibotson, Sharon Creech, Diana Wynn Jones, and Cornelia Funke are some of my favorite authors for mg. Igraine the Brave by Cornelia Funke was such a hit with my 8 year olds when I was teaching.


  2. Has she tried any of the Disney Hyperion books? My daughter has really enjoyed Serafina and the Black Cloak, the Kingdom Keeper series , and the Artemis Fowl series both the books and graphic novels. She also loves The School for Good and Evil.
