Middle Grade fiction is another large section in our library and because of that, there are more books to choose from, so each book may not get a high circulation. In addition, many of the titles in the top ten are newer additions to our collection and did not have the full year to circulate.
Number ten was a tie between two new additions to our collection.
The number nine spot was taken by three books, also newer additions to our collection.
The number eight spot is held by books that are a little older in our collection, but still new within the last two years. This is not the only appearance of one of the NERDS titles to show up in this top ten.
I must confess that I have only read 1 out of the three of the books that hold the number seven spot, but Hoot is definitely on my "to be read" shelf.
The number six spot is a tie between 4 books, none of which surprise me. All have eye catching covers and the story lines are pretty good.
Number five...Vampire books are always a hit.
Number four...the other two NERDS books in our collection made it to the top five!
The number three book...I may have had a little bit to do with the popularity of this title as I book talked it with both fourth and fifth grade classes, but it is also a really good action read.
The number two spot...another fun read for tweens
And the number one middle grade fiction book...
I was ecstatic to see that a Haddix book took the number one spot. I find her books so exciting and apparently the kids enjoy her books, too.
What are some of your favorite middle grade reads? Any of these also popular in your library or media center?
