The Best Diverse Middle Grade Fantasy Reading List

Check out this list for the most recommended diverse middle grade fantasy books | Nandini @ Unputdownable Books

Middle grade fantasy is what got me into reading and I find that no matter how old I become, I still have a soft spot for this genre. When I was a little girl, the narratives had very little diversity but the landscape has changed since then. However, I’ve been reading significantly lesser middle grade books these days and leaning more towards young adult and adult stories. I want to consciously add more diverse MG books to my TBR, so I did some research and came up with a list of 10 books that were highly praised and recommended. I’m sharing that with you in today’s post in the hopes that you can find an interesting book or two to pick up for yourself, your children if you are a parent or your class in case you’re an educator.

Top 10 Books I Want to Read This Spring (2019)

Check out my 2019 spring reading list and get inspired to create your own | Nandini @ Unputdownable Books

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for March 19th, 2019 is: Books On My Spring 2019 TBR.

February Wrap-Up + March Reading Month (2019)

February must-reads and hot new March 2019 releases to add to your TBR immediately | Nandini @ Unputdownable Books

Happy March to all my lovely readers! It’s already reached summer temperatures here in my city and I find myself excited about the change. I seem to have found a renewed energy in pursuing the goals I’d set for myself at the beginning of the year. I also started re-reading an old inspirational book that was a favourite of mine as a teenager, which has helped me cope with all the things life has thrown at me in February. I hope I can keep this momentum going throughout the year! Now, let’s talk about the month that just went by and my plans for the upcoming one.

December Wrap-Up + January Reading Month (2018-19)

Hello, dear readers! Hope you’re having a wonderful time on the last weekend of the year. Who else is excited for the new year? I have so many plans that I mean to execute (I shared some of them in this post) and I really hope I can carve out time every day to work towards all my goals. Before I start building castles in the air for January already, I’m going to recap how I fared on the last month of the year. November and December seem to have been slow months for me, but they share some remarkable differences, mostly in the quality of the books I read. Without further ado, let me give you all the juicy details!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My Winter TBR (2018)

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for December 18th, 2018 is: Winter TBR. I love making TBRs but I rarely ever stick to them. Looking back at my older TBR posts, I found that my Summer TBR had a 70% success rate and my Fall TBR fared even worse with only a 30% hit rate. I want to be smarter about this season’s TBR so I actually pick books I’m very excited about and will positively read soon. Feel free to check back in spring and yell at me if I don’t have at least a 70% with this one!

October Wrap-Up + November Reading Month (2018)

October was one of the worst months of my life, to be honest. Not in terms of the books I read or anything related to that but personally. I don’t have a lot of words to share but I’m dealing with some really traumatic personal stuff, so I’d really appreciate some distance and understanding at the moment. It made me reconsider many things, go on a short hiatus at the end of October and I’ve been struggling since to get my life back to normal. This wrap-up may not be as detailed or wordy as usual mostly because I’m in the mood for brevity. However, sharing my love for books makes me feel marginally better, so I decided to write this post despite everything. With that sombre introduction out of the way, let me talk about the reading month I had and what I’m looking forward to in November.
