My top 10 posts for readers 2020

best children's books 2020
Posted on December 14, 2020

It comes as no surprise to me that book lists make up the top 10 of my top blog posts for readers for 2020.

And even less of a surprise that books for the tricky 13/14-year-old age group dominates the search terms that bring people to my blog over and over again.

It’s probably one of the influences that subconsciously drove my Maven & Reeve Mystery series into the upper middle grade/lower YA section of the bookshelves.

So if you’re looking for books for young readers, particularly (but not limited to) middle-grade readers, let the countdown begin!
