MMGM for May 11, 2020


A thumbs up this week to all our MMGM bloggers. Click on a May flower to read what they have to say.

At ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I have a review of Book 4 in the Explorer Academy series—THE STAR DUNES.

A GARDEN OF BOOKS features a review of Gargantis (The Legends of Eerie-on-Sea #2) by Thomas Taylor.

Michelle Mason at Musings of a Young Adult Writer has another review from her fourth grader who is covering THE GIRL WHO COULD NOT DREAM by Sarah Beth Durst.

June McCrary Jacobs at Reading, Writing, and Stitch-Metic has Summer Reading for Kids, Part One, her resource guide with links!

Welcome to Matt Sweeney at Woodpecker Books who joins the MMGM parade with a review of Mr. Gedrick and Me. Stop by and say hello.

Maria Antonia at Of Books, Photography, and Tea has an older book to share. It’s called I Am David by Anne Holm

Patricia Tilton at CHILDREN’S BOOKS HEAL reviews a powerful book in free verse, On the Horizon by Lois Lowry.

Alex Baugh at Randomly Reading is back with The List of Things That Will Not Change by Rebecca Stead.

Sierra Dertinger at BOOKS. ICED LATTES. BLESSED., shares her thoughts on Other Words for Home by Jasmine Warga.

Michael Gettel-Gilmartin at Middle Grade Mafioso is featuring Nic Stone’s CLEAN GETAWAY.

Rosi Hollinbeck features a review and GIVEAWAY of WINK by Rob Harrell. Rosi also has some not to be missed links for her writing friends.

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

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. Love the flowers. I’m hoping that not all of mine die of frost. Brrr. Hope you’re staying warm.

  2. Thanks, Greg. Another great job. Stay well.
