It’s another year of MMGM—my 5th year hosting!
Click on a party hat to get the party started:
At ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I have a review of THE UNFORGETTABLE LOGAN FOSTER by Shawn Peters.
Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal reviews They Only See the Outside by Kalli Dakos, poetry written in free verse that dives into the emotional life for those 7-10.
Valinora Troy was a judge in the Cybils Elementary and Middle Grade Speculative Fiction category. Today she shares some of her favorites that did not make the final cut.
Jennifer Bohnhoff starts the year off with a review of THE DREADED CLIFF by Terry Nichols.
Maria Antonia has a post about SPY SCHOOL AT SEA by Stuart Gibbs.
Carol Baldwin takes us back to an interview with Joyce Hostetter. In it she discusses BLUE, COMFORT, and AIM.
Karen Yingling at Mrs. Yingling Reads always has a fantastic MMGM book to share. Be sure to take a look along with her other reviews last week including Jadie in Five Dimensions.
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.
