Middle Grade at The Book Smugglers

The Book Smugglers have a weekly feature, Old School Wednesdays, when they look at titles that aren’t “new and shiny”.

This past Wednesday, they did a middle grade blogger roundtable and I was one of the participants.

One of the fun things about a roundtable like this is, of course, seeing what titles that people select. Another is how each blogger interprets it a bit differently. And how no titles overlap!

The  other participants: Heidi (Bunbury in the Stacks), Charlotte (Charlotte’s Library), Angie (Angieville), and Ana (Things Mean A Lot).

My picks?

A Proud Taste for Scarlet and Miniver by E. L. Konigsburg

The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper

Master Skylark by John Bennett

It’s Not the End of the World by Judy Blume

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle

Why these five? And what did the others select? You’ll have to go over to The Book Smugglers to find out.

  1. Ohhhh, A PROUD TASTE et al. Would you even be able to get away with naming a book that, these days? I mean, since most people don’t know a word meaning, and would have to look it up??? Man, Old Skool has some good books going for it.
