Part of my May TBR includes fitting in some middle grade books for an event in an amazing Facebook group. For May, they’ve created the Book to School event. This event is set up with the criteria to read in a report card format, which I’ve inserted below.
My TBR for this event includes:
- Math: a book over 200 pages
- Braced by Alyson Gerber
- Geography: a book with an adventure
- The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
- Art: read a book with a beautiful cover
- Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire by John August
- Ghoul Studies: read a book that has horror elements
- The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken
- Spells: read a book with magic
- Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi
- Care of Magical Creatures: read a book with magical creatures
- The Serpent’s Secret by Sayantani DasGupta
For this event, You CAN read YA for this challenge but there’s a catch – if you choose to read YA, instead of MG then you will get less entries for the prize drawing.
Entries are as followed:
- Each MG book challenge completed with give you TWO entries towards the prizes.
- Each YA book used to stand in for a MG book will give you ONE entry towards the prizes.
The biggest reason to read those MG books is that if you complete the challenge and they are all middle-grade books – you will get an extra EIGHT entries for a total of TWENTY shots at the prizes.
We have left in the YA option, so that people can still play even if they really don’t want to read MG – remember it only takes one entry to possibly win a prize.
There are two prizes for this event! One is open to anyone who participates in the event and is open to international as well. The second is open to just US players. Both will be listed below.
The event is happening all throughout May so there is plenty of time to join! You can join by joining the Facebook group, TBR and Beyond, and then joining the event once you’ve been added to the group.
