Ten Australian Middle-grade Books That Aren’t Just For Middle-grade!

Welcome to 2023! It’s a new year and I am starting some new things! I decided, over the break, that I needed to become brave when it comes to video. My son told me that I had quite a lot of views on some videos on my (very neglected) YouTube channel from some years ago, so I thought, why not revamp the channel! As is my way, I jumped in head first and have updated the channel, to reflect my authorly and bookish persona.

I am going to be recording some of my book reviews on film, tips about wellbeing and mental health, sustainable living and behind the scenes in relation to my own books. I am hoping I can feature guests as time goes on.

My first episode is a fairly long one, featuring Ten Middle-Grade Books That Aren’t Just for Middle-grade! I could have made this 70 books, but had to stop at 10! I hope you enjoy and find some books you haven’t read. Join me and discover 10 beautiful books by talented Australian authors, that both children and adults can enjoy. Features Kate Gordon, Emily Gale, Di Walker, Sue Whiting, Nova Weetman, Allayne Webster, Julianne Negri, Jane Godwin, Kate Foster and Katrina Nannestad. All books with heart ❤️

I hope you enjoy watching. Please head over and subscribe to my YouTube channel to be notified when new videos go up! My videos are real and raw and not edited or jazzed up – just me, talking to you, sharing my thoughts and heartfelt feelings about books, the world and everything x

x Helen
