MMGM for 8/27/18


This past weekend marked my six year blogging anniversary at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE! Don’t worry. You didn’t miss it. The party is today! First off I have a review of 24 HOURS IN NOWHERE by Dusti Bowling. Click on the the image and give it a read, then comment for your chance to win one of three special giveaways. You can get a second entry by commenting on my announcement post from last Friday. Whether you have followed me for years or are new today please enter, it’s my thank you for a great six years. Much more to come! (Be sure to visit all these other great MMGM bloggers by clicking on the cupcake I made for each of them.)

Author Susan Uhlig shares the laugh she had reading Eric Kahn Gale’s THE WIZARD’S DOG, a magical fantasy sure to please Merlin fans of all ages.
June McCrary Jacobs at ‘Reading, Writing, & Stitch-Metic has a feature on a STEAM Biography about a seventeenth century female artist and scientist entitled, ‘The Girl Who Drew Butterflies‘.
Completely Full Bookshelf recommends The Family Under the Bridge by Natalie Savage Carlson, a Newbery medal winner many of us may have missed.

Rosi Hollinbeck has a REVIEW and GIVEAWAY of Louisiana’s Way Home by Kate DiCamillo. Rosi also includes some helpful links for writers.
Kevin Springer at Middle Grade Mafia gives you his thoughts on STU TRULY by Dan Richards. Perfect for those 10-13 year-olds who are doing their best to survive adolescence.
Mundie Kids frequently feature children book reviews. Check out all their posts including a look at Disney’s Villains Series. You can also enter the Giveaway!
Karen Yingling at Ms. Yingling Reads always has an informative MMGM post. Be sure to check out today’s feature and all of her other reviews the past week including Marcus Vega Doesn’t Speak Spanish.


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! (CLICK HERE FOR PAST MMGM POSTS)
*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.
