Middle Grade March Madness Sign-Ups!

Welcome, welcome! A couple days ago I was thinking about how little middle grade books I see in the book blogging community. I had an idea, how about a Month-Long Middle Grade Book Reading Challenge? Then I talked to the lovely Chelsey @ Starry Sky Books, because I knew she read a fair amount of MG and asked if she wanted to co-host the reading challenge? Her response was very positive and without further ado...

  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks MG fiction needs to be talked about more! I have my own March MG Madness Event going on during March, but it's more of a MG month long celebration and not a reading challenge. So I'll definitely have to sign up for your challenge to keep track of all my MG reading :)

  2. Awesome challenge! I had to sign up! :D

  3. Great challenge, I'll probably sign up. The 2nd Beyonders book comes out in March & I already planned to re-read the 1st, so this one is perfect. Plus, I love the idea for MG read-a-thon :)

  4. Great idea. Because there isn't enough focus on middle grade. So excited you are doing this.

  5. This is AWESOME! Was trying to track down something else and came upon this! I read a lot of MG so love to see a whole month of a reading challenge for it. Will be sure to help spread the word!

  6. Ok, signed up :) Thanks for hosting!!!
