Best of the Middle Grade Blogs: March 25

This week I picked up Diary of a Wimpy Kid and #5 The Ugly Truth. I haven't read this series yet (blame it on personal interests) but I wanted more examples of 1st person. I read the books in 4 hours. I couldn't put them down. Love the voice. I think they're completely relatable to middle graders. They are loosely plotted but I still enjoyed the random collection of middle grade experiences. I thought I would pick up #2 Roderick Rules today.

Are any of you going to see the movie Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Roderick Rules? It opens today.

Industry & Inspriation




  1. I haven't read Diary of a Wimpy Kid yet either, but I'm going to add it to my TBR pile. Thanks for the great links!

  2. I haven't read the whole series, but I liked the first two.

  3. Loved Wimpy Kid. My former students ate this series up. My boys love them. I was at Costco a few days ago, and I watched a family push around a cart while their two boys read Wimpy Kids.

    We're going to the movie on Saturday, my son's 10th birthday.
