Whoops! Apologies for the delay in getting this post up. It's time to chime in and share your best reads from the month of April. What middle grade titles were stand-outs for you?

My picks are easy to pinpoint. I treated myself to Okay for Now by Gary D. Schmidt, who is one of my favorite authors. This books is a sorta-sequel (really more of a spin-off) to The Wednesday Wars, which I adored. And I *finally* read Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. Genius rich boy takes on the entire world of fairies? Sure. I'm there for it. Looking forward to the rest of the series. : )

Harley Bennett | 100 comments Since I had plenty of time to read in April, I was able to read some of favorites again: Juniper Berry, Fever 1793, and Daphne's Book. Kat Wolfe Investigates and Newbery winner The Hero and the Crown were the best of the rest.

Manybooks | 346 comments I read the entire St. Clare’s series in April, both the Enid Blyton ones and those penned by Pamela Cox, entertaining enough but also not spectacular and often pretty dated.

Oooh, I have Juniper Berry somewhere in my (rather imposing) To Read pile. Good, is it? That's promising!

In April 2020, I was able to treat myself to the bestselling series of the Lunar Chronicles. I quite enjoyed Cinder and am also reading A Velocity of Being: Letters to A Young Reader along with a few picture books.

Justine Laismith (justinelaismith) | 319 comments I had my first foray into audio books as they were free on Audible Stories. So I had a good haul of 10 books in April.
These books all had 4* from me.

Idyllic rural life in China: Bronze and Sunflower

Whisked me away to New Orleans:Viva Durant and The Secret of the Silver Buttons

Made me laugh out loud : Fortunately, the Milk

Magical and heart warming tale: The Storm Keeper's Island
