Let Us Read Middle Grade 2022

Even though I haven’t quite looked back at my reading challenges from this year, it is about time to start announcing reading challenges for the new year. And yes I am bringing back Let us Read Middle Grade for another year. Last year wasn’t very successful in participation nor on my end but I hope this year will go a lot smoother.

Read as many middle grade books in 2022 as you can, and if able, review them. I’ve thought about adding levels here but in the end decided to leave it, and keep it as open as possible.


  • Share your intent to participate with a blog post that links back here, a post on social media using the tag #LetUsReadMG2022 or make a shelf on goodreads and leave a link down below.
  • Make a list of the books you’d like to read during the year.
  • Read a middle grade during January 1st to December 31st in 2022
  • If possible review the book on your blog and/or on Goodreads/Storygraph

  1. I didn’t participate in any reading challenges this year, but I thought this one was great! I’m glad you decided to bring it back. πŸ™‚ I see some titles I recognize on your TBR that I think you’ll love! Goodness knows I plan on reading a ton of middle grade in 2022 as well. Hopefully. xD

      1. *crosses fingers* I hope it is! We all deserve more middle grade, especially the way 2022 has started. xD

        If all else fails, do what I did: take a children’s lit class that forces you to read one middle grade book a week, LOL! Did wonders for my middle grade reading. xD Though, on second thought, I’m not sure I’d actually recommend doing that. πŸ˜›


  2. This is a great idea! I have a few on my TBR that I want to read but haven’t gotten to yet. Maybe in 2022, I’ll try to read at least one MG a month.

  3. I’m in! πŸ‘

    I think I will be reading one more MG this month, so my total for this year will be 24! Yay me. πŸŽ– Ha ha. πŸ˜„

    After reading my last Middle Grade I feel the need to write a blog post about what it is, and isn’t, and the difference between censorship and inappropriate content criticisms. 😐
