May 2021 TBR

This month I am participating in the TBR and Beyond Middle Grade Magical Journey which I am so excited about as Middle Grade for me is one my favourite age categories for Children’s Fiction as there is so much you can discuss because the children are getting older but still have that magical adventure running through the plot. I will be reading a total twelve books for the challenge which fingers crossed I will achieve. I will leave a link for the Facebook group below they are an amazing group people to discuss books with. The one I am most excited to read is Dragon Pearl as I am huge fan of the stories that being published in Rick Riordan’s imprint Rick Riordan Presents.

Let me know in the comments what books you are reading this month? Also if you have read any books on my list let me know your thoughts?
