The LINKS for January 1, 2018

(Click on a New Year’s bell to take you to their site)

Today I have a review of a book that recently arrived in the U.S. from Spain: TOLETIS by Rafa Ruiz. You can scroll down to read (Also linked via the New Year bell).
COMPLETELY FULL BOOKSHELF is re-reviewing Goodbye Stranger by Rebecca Stead. Check it out to find out why.
Karen Yingling always has some awesome MMGM Picks. Today she has ESCAPE FROM ALEPPO. Be sure to check out her reviews from the past week including Snow Lane, Gravedigger’s Club, and Slider’s Son.
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.


I will be helping judge the winner from this impressive lineup for MG fiction:

    I’m going to check out the book from Spain. Good luck with choosing the Cybil winner. I’m excited to see which book comes out #1.

  2. Yes, I’m so glad Refugee made the finalists. It was my favorite book last year! And I’m glad Caleb and Kit and Amina’s Voice made the finals. Loved them all!

  3. Awesome list. Was excited to see Dusti Bowling’s book on the list.
