May 2020 TBR and Beyond Challenge: Middle Grade Mayhem!


I really look forward to Middle Grade May every year and we have a fun new challenge for TBR and Beyond.  You can join the challenge HERE.   You get to pick your team.  I am in the Foxy Assassins Team, so I highly recommend joining that one. 🙂




The Rules:


This month our challenge is “May’s Middle-Grade Mayhem!” event. The prompts for the challenge will be in the comments below, as well in the general group. There is also TONS of recommendations. Feel free to print it out and mark it up as you please.

YES, your reads must be in the middle-grade category!

This month is a battle – there are THREE teams to choose from. Once you are assigned a team, you can start working on your reading prompts (on May 1st), which will earn points for you and your entire team. The team with the most points at the end of the month wins!

There will be two winners this month – Prize this month will be any book from Book Depository (up to $15 US). The winners will be randomly drawn from the winning team.

Prize Entries –
Each book read is worth 5 points
Each activity is worth 10 points
Finish the game – 20 points EXTRA

You will get an additional 5 points, if you read one of the TBR and Beyond Middle-Grade Monthly Group Reads –
Ghost Squad by

– We maybe have one or two more ways to earn entries as time the month goes on, so keep an eye out for that.

Hopefully this is a fun, challenge and don’t worry if you can’t do it all. This is was just meant to be something to keep us distracted while we are all stuck inside!


The post also has book recs for every category.






What I’m hoping to read:




Do you plan on joining this challenge?  If so, what team did you choose?  Are you going to read any of the books on my TBR?
