Keeper of the Lost Cities: Great Book Series For Middle Schoolers + Giveaway!

I’m partnering with Simon & Schuster for this giveaway.

I am super excited to share with you all about the Keeper of the Lost Series series of books by Shannon Messenger. This fantasy adventure series is perfect for middle schoolers.

Keeper of Lost Cities

My son is quite a bookworm. He really enjoys reading adventure fantasy books. He started reading the Keeper of Lost Cities series a few weeks ago and he is obsessed! He will not put them down and often asks to stay up later so he can continue reading. The books are ideal for middle school kids who like adventure fantasy books like Harry Potter, The School of Good and Evil, The Unwanteds, and The Land of Stories.


The Keeper of Lost Cities books follows the heroine Sophie Foster. Who discovers she’s an elf from the Lost Cities, and embarks on an incredible adventure, discovering new abilities, and making new friends. You will soon discover that the secrets of Sophie’s past were buried for a reason and the truth she uncovers could put all of the worlds in danger.

I love that the series is great for both boys and girls. Even though the heroine is a girl she has a big group of friends and there are lots of characters both girls and boys can identify with.

Book 7 of the series “Flashback” launched recently.  Check out the trailer  below!

I have always focused on instilling a love for reading in both of my kids and I am thrilled that he has found a series of books he loves so much. When I find myself asking him to put the book down so he can come to dinner or go to bed I can’t help but smile. I don’t have to worry about limiting screen time because he’s so excited about reading! This is priceless!

My son and loved that you never knew what was going to happen next and that he had a hard time putting the books down. He also loved how the story was set up and he really liked the characters were different and interesting and he could relate to some of them.

The Keeper of Lost Cities book series is perfect for keeping your kids excited about reading all summer long. And because the books are so exciting and interesting they are sure to .  We’re traveling a lot this summer and The Keeper of the Lost Cities have been perfect for taking on road trips and on the plane.
