MMGM Links (12/10)

I'm SURE it won't surprise you that I have no MMGM again--I *probably* won't be back on track until the new year. But I DO have links for you.

Before we get to that, though, I also keep forgetting to tell you that I will be doing a live chat THIS WEDNESDAY on YABC!!!!

If you click the photo it should take you to the YABC website with all the details. But in case that doesn't work you can also click HERE

So if you're around on Wed at 9pm eastern PLEASE come hang out. I will be answering all of your most burning questions--AND THERE WILL BE A GIVEAWAY! Don't miss out!

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. Awesome you'll be at YABC. Will see if I can check it out.

  2. Hope I can check it out! Thanks for the MMGM links! I have another post and yet again...did not get it to ya in time. Here it be:

    Happy Monday!

  3. Thanks for the link! But sorry for the confusion...I don't have a giveaway copy of THE ONE AND ONLY IVAN. :-( Wish I did, though.

  4. Hi, #1! *waves* Haven't been around much due to a coaching position this Fall, but TOTALLY missing you! :)


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. Friendly debate is fine, but always be kind to each other). <3
