MMGM Links (5/20/13)

Okay, it's 1am in Seattle and I've done 6 events in 6 days and been on two planes and in 3 hotels and in a few hours I'll be doing another event on the S&S Summer Lovin' Tour (side note: if you're near Seattle--come see me! University Bookstore, 7pm!) So obviously I have no MMGM. And I'm not sure my brain is up to preparing the links but I'm going to try--apologies in advance if I miss someone or mess something up

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. You must be exhausted! Take care.

  2. You ROCK! Thanks for the links, get some sleep when you can...and...have fun. Sounds like a whirlwind, but the good kind!

  3. Wow, 6 events in 6 days! You are busy! : )

  4. Thank you for doing these. They are such a great way to get connected to other middle-grade reads fans. But don't wear yourself out! We understand that you must be crazy busy (what with two book series, tours and, uh, the whole rest of life). ^.^ Hope it's all good, though!


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.
