MMGM for June 10, 2019


And National Little League Week!

 No baseball book today, but I do have THE ROOT OF MAGIC by Kathleen Benner Duble. Click on my old #10 jersey for this post and the baseball for the other features and reviews below.

June McCrary Jacobs at ‘Reading, Writing, & Stitch-Metic’ features Penny: Horse Diaries #16, a historical adventure novel set in Northern California during the Gold Rush and beyond.

Completely Full Bookshelf is back with a review of Making Friends by Kristen Gudsnuk

Welcome back to Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal. She has a review of Riders of the Realm #2: Through the Untamed Sky, by Jennifer Lynn Alvarez and Pat loved the world building.

Maria Antonia at Of Books, Photography, and Tea features a review of Every Shiny Thing by Cordelia Jensen and Laurie Morrison.

Also returning this week is Ben Langhinrichs at My Comfy Chair. He has a review of George Brewington’s debut middle grade, The Monster Catchers.

The returning MMGM all-stars keep rolling in with Alex Baugh at Randomly Reading and her review of August Isle by Ali Standish.

Dorine White at The Write Path reviews Flowers for Sarajevo by John McCutcheon.

Rosi Hollinbeck reviews Penguin Days by Sara Leach. Rosi also has some not to be missed links for her writing friends.

Karen Yingling at Ms. Yingling Reads has another informative MMGM post. Be sure to check out today’s feature and all of her reviews the past week including Beach Battle Blowout.

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.

  1. Greg, I must have made a mistake in my e-mail — the author’s last name is Jennifer Lynn Alvarez.
