Did last week’s field guide lead you to any fabulous middle grade reads? I hope so!I n fact during my own research I picked up a few new fantasy/mythological novels that I’m incorporating into lit circles for my 7th graders.
Sometimes I wish I could just research books all day because I LOVE finding new reads!
Which is why this week’s Judging Genres is featuring YA fantasy! I admit that I tend to read much more fantasy geared for middle graders than I do for young adult. But after compiling this list, I’m kind of ready to skip all the genres and focus on fantasy all year!
But I won’t. I’ve made you a promise after all.
So, once again I give you a field guide so you can explore the genre!
