AHH, the end of year lists continue — this time with my list of best middle-grade books in 2020! As you’ll notice in the post title, these are MY favorites out of the limited selection I read this year. Out of the 87 books I’ve read at this time, 57 were excellent middle-grade books. These 13 picks rose to the top for me. They were the books I could still remember vividly, books whose covers still evoke a warm feeling because the stories are so dear to my heart. Many of these books were stories I’ve never seen told in middle-grade literature, featured underrepresented themes in the genre or strong, unforgettable protagonists.
