MMGM for 12/11/17

It’s That Holiday Season!

The LINKS for December 11, 2017

(Click on an ornament to take you to their site)

Welcome to another great set of links. Below are my thoughts on MAGNUS CHASE and the GODS of ASGARD: THE SHIP OF THE DEAD by Rick Riordan (Also linked via the blue ornament).
Ashlyn Avery from WHAT SHALL WE READ NEXT? joins the MMGM holiday walkway this week with a review of The Maze Runner by James Dashner.
Melissa Roske has an interview with Beth McMullen, author of the MG debut, MRS. SMITH’S SPY SCHOOL FOR GIRLS.
Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal is reviewing The Castle in the Mist by Amy Ephron
Rosi Hollinbeck at The Write Stuff is reviewing and giving away Welcome to Wonderland #2: Beach Party Surf Monkey.
Iron Guy Carl at Boys Rule! Boys Read! has a great selection of books he’d like to see checked out more. Right now they are relegated to the Island of Semi-Neglected Books. Take a trip over and see if you agree.
Zoie at Whisked Away By Words is featuring this week The Fog by Kyo Maclear and Kenard Pak.
COMPLETELY FULL BOOKSHELF has a fun post discussing new and upcoming books written by authors of books previously recommended.
Author Dorine White at The Write Path has a review of Wormwood Mire.
Suzanne Warr at TALES FROM THE RAVEN returns this week. She  has an interview with The Art of the Swap author Kristine Asselin, and also includes the names of the winners of her holiday giveaway!
JustinTalksBooks is back with a review of Lawless by Jeffery Salane.
The Middle Grade Mafioso is featuring a review of THE CHILDREN OF REFUGE by Margaret Peterson Haddix.
Karen Yingling always has some awesome MMGM Picks. Be sure to check out her book choice today along with her other reviews from the past week.
If you would like to join in the MMGM fun and get your own spot on the walkway, all you have to do is blog about a middle grade book you love on a Monday (contests, author interviews and whatnot also count–but are most definitely not required) and email me the title of the book you’re featuring and a link to your blog at gpcolo (at) gmail (dot) com
(Make sure you put MMGM or Marvelous Middle Grade Monday in the subject line so it gets sorted accurately–and please don’t forget to say what book you’re featuring)
You MUST email me your link by Sunday evening (11 PM Eastern Time) in order to be included in the list of links for the coming Monday.
Thanks for spreading the middle grade love and for being a part of this awesome tradition begun by Shannon Messenger and carried on here at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE!
*Please note: these posts are not a reflection of my own opinions on the books featured. Each blogger is responsible for their own MMGM content and I do not pre-screen reviews ahead of time, nor do I control what books they choose. I simply assemble the list based on the links that are emailed to me.

    The ornaments are perfect for the holiday season theme — they make me even more excited to read about books knowing that I’ll soon be able to read more soon when the holiday comes!
