Well. I can’t say I have a specific FAVORITE genre. Although just from looking at my blog, you might assume it was Middle Grade anything. So the two series’ I have today to recommend are both Middle Grade.
#1: Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney
These books are pure comedic genius. I am a lot older than their target age range but I never fail to enjoy reading them. I can turn to literally any page in any book and dissolve into massive fits of laughter. The drawings are funny, the ideas are funny, it’s just perfect. So, actually, whether you’re a reluctant reader or not, I would recommend you read these at least once in your life. At least the first book. Just give it a shot. It’s funny. Really.
#2: Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan
These books are extremely epic. Not only are they based on Greek mythology, a subject I happen to love and know a lot about, but they are written in a modern funny captivating way. It’s a wonderful series, impossible to put down, and there is a sequel series, Heroes of Olympus, and a series about Egyptian mythology (which I didn’t enjoy as much), Kane Chronicles.
So what are your recommendations? Have you read either of these series’? Share!
