Afoma Umesi: Children’s Book Lists & Reviews (Chapter Books, Middle-Grade & Young Adult Books)

middle-grade book blog - afoma umesi

Afoma Umesi is home to a large directory of book reviews and book lists. While the blog focuses mainly on middle-grade books, you will also find a carefully curated selection of picture book reviews, chapter book reviews, young adult book reviews, and adult fiction and non-fiction reviews.

Beyond that, you can expect to find book lists packed with diverse, engaging recommendations. Book lists also span across the same categories: picture books, chapter books, middle-grade, young adult, and adult. Because we care about all things bookish, we also feature regular interviews with authors whose books we have enjoyed.

Finally, this blog also contains useful freelancing resources especially targeted to freelancers who use freelancing platforms like Upwork.
