Upcoming Middle Grade Releases #BEA16 Edition

Last month I had the chance to attend BEA (Book Expo of America) in Chicago. This was my third time attending, and it was a blast! I'll be posting more about it tomorrow on Mundie Moms. While there I attended some fabulous publisher events, where I received a few arcs for some exciting upcoming releases. I loved hearing the authors talk about their upcoming releases. I also waited in a few lines for a couple authors. Those long lines were totally worth it! 

Below is a list of some exciting up coming Middle Grade reads I received arcs of at BEA. I am so excited about these upcoming releases! If these books aren't already on your TBR list, add them asap! I'll be posting reviews and book features for them in the coming weeks and months. Trust me, they're worth pre-ordering now! I was very selective on the books I accepted from publishers at BEA, and these were the only MG ones I brought home.

What are some upcoming 2016 MG releases you're looking forward to reading?


  1. Wow, so many awesome looking books on this list. And some absolutely gorgeous covers (The Girl Who Drank the Moon? Beautiful). With so much potential, where to start?? On a side note, interesting to see that Eoin Colfer wrote an Iron Man book! Seeing as Eoin Colfer can do no wrong, might have to look into that one...

    1. The covers for these books are beautiful, and my favorite is The Girl Who Drank The Moon. I am so excited to read Eoin's book. I had the chance to hear him talk about it at during a publisher event, and I think this book is going to be a huge hit for fans both young and old of both Iron Man and Eoin's.

  2. So many fun books coming out! I'm definitely going to have to read some of these with my kids.

    Thanks for sharing!
