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. Can’t wait to read through all these! I was surprised this morning to wake up and realize that I’d scheduled a post and forgotten about it… I know it’s too late to be added to the list, but if anyone reading the comments is interested, I wrote a review Of Gary D. Schmidt’s JUST LIKE THAT: https://blytheandbold.wordpress.com/2021/01/25/book-to-share-just-like-that-by-gary-d-schmidt/
    (Actually, even though it’s technically MG, it leans pretty heavily YA for my personal comfort–but it’s super!)

  2. Thanks, Greg. Great job, as usual.
