Armchair BEA Day Five-Middle Grade/Young Adult

I still love to read Middle Grade and Young Adult. I believe that there are great books for all ages. I don't let age recommendations hold me back.

I'm going to start with some of my favorites as a kid.

I will start with Middle Grade:

The Secret Garden (Barnes & Noble Classics)

The Little Gymnast

Behind the Attic Wall

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Farm

Not all the books I enjoyed as a young adult would be qualified as Young Adult. Since these are the books I enjoyed I am listing my choices as Young Adult regardless. Sorry for anyone offended, but I certainly had some eclectic taste as a young adult.

Heaven (Casteel, #1)
The Virgin Suicides

Flowers in the Attic (Dollanganger, #1)

Comes the Blind Fury

As I stated, I still enjoy reading Middle Grade and Young Adult. Some of the more modern books I would recommend are:



Christina's Ghost

The Grimm Legacy (The Grimm Legacy, #1)

The Inquisitor’s Apprentice


Shadowlands (Shadowlands, #1)

The Caged Graves


If You Find Me

I hope these choice will inspire you to try out a middle grade or a young adult choice. Truly, many of them are good choices for adults too! What are some of your favorite MG or YA reads? Any of my choices you don't like? What would you recommend to me? I love to read your comments! Thank you so much for joining me for Armchair BEA week. As a new blogger, I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate you reading my blog!! Enjoy your weekend!


  1. The Secret Garden is a favorite of mine that I revisted recently -- it held up well in re-reading as an adult.

    I'm so glad that you found Armchair BEA rewarding as a new blogger! It's a great way to get tapped into the community.

  2. Thanks so much Joy for commenting! The Secret Garden is such a timeless classic. I think it is geared to ages 8 to 98.

  3. I love V.C. Andrews books. Have for many years.
