Marvelous Middle Grade Monday: Links for the Week

I'm still recovering from the amazingness of BEA (I promise an update with pics SOON) and the jet-lag is intense, so I have no MMGM this week. But here's links to the awesome bloggers carrying the MMGM torch for me*:

If you would like to join in the MMGM fun, all you have to do is blog about a middle grade book you love (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. (Make sure you put MMGM or Marvelous Middle Grade Monday in the subject line so I see it)

I used to not have a cut-off time for adding links to the post, but with how insane my schedule is right now, if you don't email me by Sunday evening (usually around 11pm PST is when I put the links together) I can't guarantee I'll have a chance to add you. BUT, you are welcome to add your link in the comments on this post so people can find you!

*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 posts 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 ahead of time.


  1. Glad to hear you're recovering! And thanks for the awesome links, yet again.

  2. Thanks for adding me to the list! I know I aimed a little low in reader age this week--those darn genres.

    I look forward to reading everyone's reviews :)

  3. In all the BEA craziness I totally forgot to send in my link for my audiobook review of The False Prince!

  4. Looking forward to the BEA recap. Thanks for getting the links together during your 'recovery." :-)

  5. Arh this is brilliant! I love middle grade. I'm going to get on MMGM like you wouldn't believe! Yeah.

  6. Looking forward to hearing about your BEA experiences - I bet it was completely awesome! :)

  7. Thanks for all the great links! I'm always looking for more MG ideas for my girls to read. And okay, for me too!


Yay-I love comments! Thank you so much! (But please remember to keep your comments spoiler-free. Also, I try to keep this a happy, positive place. Any arguing or intense debate--on any subject will be removed. Let's keep this a safe, fun space.
