Below are some suggestions to get your school year off on the right foot.

At ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I have a review of GOLDEN TICKET by Kate Egan.
June McCrary Jacobs at Reading, Writing and Stitch-Metic has a blog tour stop for a Christian picture book entitled, ‘Guess How Much God Loves You.’ The post includes an excerpt and a giveaway.
Max @ COMPLETELY FULL BOOKSHELF is back with us this week and recommends Long Distance by Whitney Gardner.
Maria Antonia @ of books, photography, and tea also returns this week with a review of ONCE UPON A TIM by Stuart Gibbs.
Patricia Tilton at CHILDREN’S BOOKS HEAL reviews She Persisted: Sally Ride by Atia Abwai, one of 20 books in the series by Chelsea Clinton.
Valinora Troy features a review of THE GREEN EMBER by S.D. Smith.
Rosi Hollinbeck has a review of ATLAS OF EXTINCT ANIMALS. Rosi also shares 3 links of interest for her writing friends and quite the list of lexophiles.
Karen Yingling at Mrs. Yingling Reads always has a fantastic MMGM book to share. Be sure to check it out along with last Saturday’s review of INVISIBLE.
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.
