MMGM for 10-21-2019


Several months ago I received a note from a blogger asking for a more streamlined MMGM list. Your wish has been granted. On future MMGM posts I can either continue doing my graphic version or use the new format below. Let me know if you have a preference.

  • Here at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I’m reviewing THE RUBICUS PROPHECY by Alane Adams.
  • Natalie Aguirre at Literary Rambles interviews Katie Zhao and is giving away a copy of her MG fantasy THE DRAGON WARRIOR.
  • June McCrary Jacobs at Reading, Writing, & Stitch-Metic, reviews a new middle-grade action and adventure novel by Author JJ Johnson, IGGY & OZ — THE PLASTICS OF DOOM.
  • Maria Antonia at Of Books, Photography, and Tea features a review of BIRDIE by Eileen Spinelli.
  • Patricia Tilton at CHILDREN’S BOOKS HEAL has a review of  LEADING THE WAY by Senator Janet Howell and Theresa Howell.
  • Beth Mitchell at Imaginary Friends reviews WE’RE NOT FROM HERE by Geoff Rodkey.
  • Dorine White at THE WRITE PATH interviews Charles Suddeth, author of the MG book, STONEMAN AND THE TRAIL OF TEARS.
  • Suzanne Warr at Tales From The Raven spotlights THE MAYPOP KIDNAPPINGS, by CM Surrisi. There’s also a GIVEAWAY.
  • Christi M. at A GARDEN OF BOOKS reviews MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD by Drew Callander and Alana Harrison.
  • Rosi Hollinbeck has a double review. First up is BATTLE OF JUNK MOUNTAIN. Then she presents DREAM WITHIN A DREAM. Rosi also has some not to be missed links for her writing friends.
  • Karen Yingling at Ms. Yingling Reads has a new MMGM post today. After you read her newest, scroll down to see all of her featured books this past week including JUNIOR HIGH DRAMA.
  • Andrea Mack at That’s Another Story takes up the final spot in our list with THE DOUGHNUT KING by Jessie Janowitz.
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.

    I liked the icons: the links were easy to access. Today, the link for Suzanne Warr at Tales FROM the Raven didn ‘t work. Will try another device. Great list today of varied MG titles. Beth

    I liked the icons, too. It was easy to find the links and the list was easy to read because it was spaced out. I didn’t manage to get my link to you in time today, but I do have a MMGM review: The DOUGHNUT KING by Jessie Janowitz. And here’s the link:

  3. I like the icons, partly because it is fun to see what you’ll pick each week, and partly because they separate things out well. Plus, I always know what to click.

  4. I liked the links too. It made it so easy to click on the links. It also made the page look friendly and fun.
