It’s That Holiday Season!

The LINKS for December 18, 2017

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

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT—MMGM is open for business next Monday on Christmas Day. I’ll have my favorite MG moments to share. If you do have a post for that day please send them my way. Even if you don’t, I’ll provide a link to all the great sites that have been a part of MMGM with me the past two months. MG fans will have an opportunity to catch up on what they may have missed after gifts are unwrapped!

Today I have a review of a book that has been receiving a lot of buzz in the MG world: REFUGEE  by Alan Gratz. You can scroll down to read my thoughts  (Also linked via the blue ornament).
Ashlyn Avery from WHAT SHALL WE READ NEXT? has a review of Keeper of the Lost Cities: Nightfall by Shannon Messenger!! Be sure to check out the other reviews this young blogger has posted, including WONDER.
Sue Heavenrich over at Archimedes Notebook returns with a couple of MG novels that incorporate STEM into the story: Forest World by Margarita Engle and Who Gives a Hoot (Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet) by Jacqueline Kelly.
Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal is reviewing a humorous story—The Unlikely Story of a Pig in the City by Jodi Kendall. A great Christmas present!
Rosi Hollinbeck at The Write Stuff has last minute shopping suggestions including Middle Grade books!
The Middle Grade Mafioso is featuring featuring THIS IS OUR CONSTITUTION by Khizr Khan.
Melissa Roske has an interview with Barbara Dee, author of the MG contemporary, HALFWAY NORMAL.
COMPLETELY FULL BOOKSHELF is recommending Sunny Side Up by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm.
Dorine White has a review of Return of the Vinetropes by Sherry L. Ross.
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.
