I’ve enjoyed the past two months posting the MMGM links for all the fantastic bloggers out there. I’m also grateful to the talented Shannon Messenger. She entrusted me to take good care of her wonderful creation.

It’s worked out so well I’m not going away!

That’s right. Shannon will be getting a new author web site soon and won’t be able to blog. The transfer of MMGM to ALWAYS in the MIDDLE has been in the works for months, but Shannon wanted to makes sure I was comfortable with the new role. The trial period is over. I’m now fully trained and ready to carry the MMGM flag into next year and beyond.

So… thanks to Shannon for all she has done for Marvelous Middle Grade Monday.

I’ll do my best to keep our MG community of bloggers together.

Welcome to your new home! I’ll be ringing in the New Year next Monday with the first set of MMGM links for 2018.


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.
