It’s the third Monday of May and time to plan your summer reading with these great MG reviews and features.
Click on each blogger’s book to get started.
At ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I have a review of Jennifer Chan is Not Alone by Tae Keller.
Natalie Aguirre at Literary Rambles has a guest post by Donna Gallanti and a giveaway of Unicorn Island: Secret Beneath the Sand.
June McCrary Jacobs at Reading, Writing, and Stitch-Metic features a a book spotlight and review of the ‘Audubon Birdhouse Book’ by Margaret A. Barker.
Carol Baldwin shares her author’s journey with “You’re Almost in Labor!” A Celebration of Stages.
Maria Antonia has a post about THE SHATTERED CASTLE by Jennifer A. Nielsen.
Valinora Troy reviews A Wilder Magic by Juliana Brandt with TOTP and his half sister doing the honors!
Rosi Hollinbeck presents I Begin with Spring: The Life and Seasons of Henry David Thoreau. Rosi also shares three links of interest for her writing friends.
Karen Yingling at Mrs. Yingling Reads always has a fantastic MMGM book to share. Be sure to check it out along with her other reviews from last week including Saturday’s look at CAMP FAMOUS.
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.

Thanks for hosting! I’m thinking of having a Summer Doldrums 48 Hour Reading Challenge the weekend of July 15-17, and am working on a list of #MGLit bloggers to invite. I used to love the blog hop reading challenges– it was an online party before Twitter sucked everyone over there.
