MMGM for 12-2-2019



Happy December! In case you’re planning ahead, I’ll be posting the  MMGM lineup every Monday this month.

Today at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I’m reviewing DOG DRIVEN by Terry Lynn Johnson plus a GIVEAWAY!!

June McCrary Jacobs at Reading, Writing, & Stitch-Metic, features a beautiful new picture book, Dasher, written and illustrated by Matt Tavares.

Christi M. at A GARDEN OF BOOKS has a review of  A Most Slanticulis Christmas by Beaufort Smedley,  a finalist in the 2019 Indie Book Awards.

COMPLETELY FULL BOOKSHELF recommends Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson and is holding a 2019 Holiday Book Giveaway!

Beth Mitchell at Imaginary Friends has a review a review of The Dark Lord Clementine by Sarah Jean Horwitz.

Maria Antonia at Of Books, Photography, and Tea has some mini-reviews for the November Middle-Grade reading bingo challenge.

Patricia Tilton at CHILDREN’S BOOKS HEAL reviews My Fate According to the Butterfly by Gail D. Villanueva, about a girl growing up in the Philippines.

Rosi Hollinbeck has a review of THE MIRACULOUS by Jess Redman. Rosi also has some not to be missed links for her writing friends.

Michelle at from Tacos to Teaching shares a book she’s reading to her class, MASCOT by Antony John.

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 THE BECKET LIST.

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.
