Leading the MMGM parade is Michelle Mason at Musings of a Young Adult Writer. You’ll find reviews of both MG and YA books along with frequent posts about her writing journey. Today she has an interview with Krista Van Dolzer about her new book, EARTH TO DAD, and she’s offered to give away a signed hardcover. Read all about it with one click on the MMGM logo.
The rest of us today are linked with links! Here at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I have a review of THE LEGEND OF GREG by Chris Rylander. The best title ever! Click the gold links to reach my review.
June McCrary Jacobs at ‘Reading, Writing, & Stitch-Metic has a review of ‘The House in the Mail‘—a historical fiction novel by Rosemary Wells and her late husband, Tom Wells. It is set in 1927 Kentucky.
Suzanne Warr at Tales from the Raven returns this week to spotlight The Tale of Despereaux, by Kate DiCamillo.
Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal is reviewing One Good Thing About America by Ruth Freeman, a novel about a girl immigrating from the Congo to America and trying to fit in.
The Mafiosi are back in the MMGM house. Michael Gettel-Gilmartin at Middle Grade Mafioso (and often assisted by his MG son) features Ralph Hardy’s Argos: The Story of Odysseus As Told by his Loyal Dog.
Rosi Hollinbeck returns with a double feature. First off is a review of Just Under the Clouds. She follows up with a Review & Giveaway of Bobs and Tweets Trick or Tweet. More links for writers, too!
Andrea Mack at That’s Another Story adds to our impressive line-up this week with a recommendation for See You On a Starry Night by Lisa Shroeder.
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.
If you would like to join in the MMGM fun and get your own spot in the parade, 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.
