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 at SWMessenger (at) hotmail (dot) com. (Make sure you put MMGM or Marvelous Middle Grade Monday in the subject line so I see it)

NOTE: 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. Congrats to Sophie! Awesome list of Monday Middle Grade posts. Love how the list keeps growing.

  2. It's great to see this list growing. My review this week is Jablonski's Victory, a must for those middle grade 8th graders studying the Holocaust.

  3. Thanks for getting mine on the list. :)

  4. Thank you for taking the time to get these links together! I think that takes more time than actually writing the MMGM (well, other than the reading of the book part, I suppose)...

  5. Congrats to Sophie!

    I emailed you last week. Thursday, I think, but based on how busy I know you are, I'm not expecting a reply until around Thanksgiving, so no worries.

  6. Congrats to Sophie :)

    Hope you recover well and have great memoires of CC :)

  7. Hi, #1! *waves* I'll be back in the blogosphere and back to my MMGM's very soon. I've missed you! :)

  8. Congrats to Sophie! The book sounds fantastic!!! Hope you recover soon and that you had a blast!

  9. Thanks for adding me Shannon... love this feature and I hope to participate frequently!

  10. Howdy! Thanks for the links....hope you resting up well.


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.
