Middle-Grade Books by Canadian Authors

Today I’ve compiled a list of fifteen MG titles by Canadian authors I’ve reviewed on the blog in the past year. I hope you’ll check out the reviews and add some of these books to your TBR list.

And below, I’ve also listed 15 Fall 2021 MG releases by Canadian authors. Some of these titles are books I’ve had the pleasure of reading as eARCs, and some are on my TBR list to read when they are released, but these are the ones that have peaked my interest. As it’s trickier to find out about upcoming books by Canadian authors, there may be titles I’ve missed, but this is a great time to preorder a book so you don’t forget about it. I highly recommend you check out Helen Kubiw’s list of upcoming releases for Summer and Fall 2021. I love her website CanLit for LittleCanadians and she is the go-to for all things related to kidlit in Canada.
