In case you’re planning ahead, I’ll be posting the MMGM lineup every Monday this month.
Today atALWAYS in the MIDDLE I’m reviewing THE MIRACULOUS by Jess Redman.
COMPLETELY FULL BOOKSHELF has a list of six upcoming movie adaptations of MG books.
Alex Baugh at Randomly Reading has an exiting story to share: Dog Driven by Terry Lynn Johnson
Patricia Tilton at CHILDREN’S BOOKS HEAL reviews a picture book, The Shortest Day by poet/author Susan Cooper. It is for young and old alike with the Winter Solstice arriving Saturday.
Maria Antonia at Of Books, Photography, and Tea has mini-reviews featuring Books About Photography… Plus a Photography Calendar Giveaway.
Christi M. at A GARDEN OF BOOKS listened to on audio called The Strangers by Margaret Peterson Haddix. It was a finalist on the GoodReads Choice Awards (middle grade category)
Suzanne Warr at Tales from the Raven spotlights The Vanderbeekers of 141st St, by Karina Yan Glaser. Just in time for Christmas!
Rosi Hollinbeck has a review and GIVEAWAY of WAR IS OVER by David Almond. 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 last week including COG.
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.
