  • Revenge of the Beast by Jack Meggitt-Phillips: This is the sequel to one of the funniest middle grade books I read in 2020! I’m reading it for my first The Write Reads tour of 2022 and I’m so excited to participate. So far, this is just as tongue-in-cheek and engaging as the first book. I’ve only read a couple chapter, but I’m loving it!
  • Frostheart by Jamie Littler: I’ve been wanting to read this middle grade novel for ages! Winter seems like the perfect time to do it, as well. This is the January pick for Middle Grade Marvels. I love discussing middle grade novels with this group and I’ve found some new favorites because of them! I’ve just started this one, too, and, so far, I’m having a great time.

These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong

My first read of 2022 is going quite well, so far! I’m about a third of the way into this one and I’m absolutely loving it! Juliette is an incredible character and I guess Roma ain’t bad, either. I do love how much these two hold each other at gun/knife-point, so far 😂 Looking forward to taking my day off to read a good chunk of this book!
