MMGM for 10/1/18


It’s National Homemade Cookie Day for MMGM’s first of October. ALWAYS in the MIDDLE kicks off the Blog Tour for GARBAGE ISLAND by Fred Koehler. Click the cookie to reach my review and be sure to check out all the other sites below.
June McCrary Jacobs at ‘Reading, Writing, & Stitch-Metic has a biography of Architect Secundino Fernandez written by Rosemary Wells with Secundino Fernandez, ‘My Havana:  Memories of a Cuban Boyhood’.
Kara Armstrong at Scribbles of an Aspiring Writer has a review of an upper middle grade novel called, Always and Forever, Lara Jean, by Jenny Han.
Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal is reviewing The Sky at Our Feet by Nadia Hashim about two brave teens on the run in NYC.
Beth Mitchell at Imaginary Friends has another great review. This week it is Nerd Camp by Elissa Brent Weissman. It was a past CYBILS award winner.
Rosi Hollinbeck has a review & GIVEAWAY of Dear Libby by Libby Kiszner. Be sure to also click on her links for writers as they are always very helpful.
Mrsninofranco at Turn off the TV…and pick up a book! reviews THE KEY TO EVERY THING by Pat Schmatz. Read the review along with all of her recent posts.
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.
