I’m planning exciting posts for febuary, so I don’t have anything to exciting planned for the rest of the month, so I think that I will be catching up on a few weekly memes!

Today I will be doing my first Middle Grade Monday, hosted by Jordan’s Jewels: https://jordansjewels.wordpress.com/!
Middle Grade Monday is a weekly meme where you spotlight one middle grade book (or series) on, well, Monday! It can be a book (or series) that you’ve read or one that is sitting on your TBR shelf. It’s completely up to you. The point of this meme is to showcase middle grade books that people wouldn’t have sought out otherwise.
I actually just picked up a middle grade book in PERFECT condition at a used book sale, happening at my library! The book is called Savvy by Ingrid Law. It sounded interesting, and I wanted to pick it up, since it was only $1.00! I mean, who could pass up the offer!
For generations, the Beaumont family has harbored a magical secret. They each possess a “savvy” -a special supernatural power that strikes when they turn thirteen. Grandpa Bomba moves mountains, her older brothers create hurricanes and spark electricity . . . and now it’s the eve of Mibs’s big day.As if waiting weren’t hard enough, the family gets scary news two days before Mibs’s birthday: Poppa has been in a terrible accident. Mibs develops the singular mission to get to the hospital and prove that her new power can save her dad. So she sneaks onto a salesman’s bus . . . only to find the bus heading in the opposite direction. Suddenly Mibs finds herself on an unforgettable odyssey that will force her to make sense of growing up-and of other people, who might also have a few secrets hidden just beneath the skin.

I actually read this book in fifth or sixth grade, and I’ve been looking to re-read it for a while now.
