MMGM for June 15, 2020

Starting this week and continuing through the summer, I’ll be lending the top spot to one of our frequent contributors. Today it’s Natalie Aguirre at Literary Rambles. Her site has frequent author and agent interviews, along with giveaways. If you’ve never visited Literary Rambles, today is the time to start. Click on Natalie’s gold star and then be sure to do the same for all the other posts today

Natalie turns the Literary Rambles blog over to Elaine Kaye with a guest post to celebrate her debut middle grade fantasy Bad Fairy with a book giveaway.

Here at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I have ONE LAST SHOT by John David Anderson.

June McCrary Jacobs at Reading, Writing, & Stitch-Metic has The Tale of Two Peter Rabbits, about why the same name, Peter Rabbit, was used by two different authors in popular children’s books published in the early 20th century.

Michelle Mason’s son is turning into a regular on MMGM. Today he features Book 2 in the THE UNWANTEDS series (Island of Silence) by Lisa McMann.

Matt Sweeney at Woodpecker Books, where you’ll find Middle Grade Reviews for Busy Parents and today’s choice: DWARF STORY.

Jenni Enzor has a selection of books from award winning Canadian author, Johnathan Auxier.

Faith Hough at Blythe & Bold gives us her take on Kallie George’s Anne Chapter Books series.

Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal reviews Village of Scoundrels by Margi Preus.

Rosi Hollinbeck features a review and GIVEAWAY of  WRONG WAY SUMMER by Heidi Lang. Rosi also shares a set of links for her writing friends.

Karen Yingling at Ms. Yingling Reads has more great reviews today and last week including CAMP MURDERFACE.

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.

  2. Thanks so much for putting me at the top of the list. And I like how you’ll put someone at top every week. It’s a good way to spotlight them and draw readers to their blog. We could all use the help. Thanks, Greg!

  4. Thanks, Greg. I agree that Natalie deserves a top spot.
