MMGM Links (8/19/13)

I've officially had to lock myself in the drafting cave to catch up a bit (I am SO behind on my Keeper #3 deadline--waaaaahhhhhh), so I probably won't have a proper MMGM for you guys for a few weeks (though you never know--sometimes procrastination is a powerful force!) :)

But I promise I will do my best to get the links put together every week. I'll also be sending the winners of the EXILE ARC/Swag giveaway their prizes either this week or next, so if you entered keep an eye on those mailboxes!

Okay, here's this week's links:*

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. Good luck with your deadline, Shannon!

    My review today is with Ammi-Joan Paquette on her new YA sci-fi PARADOX. Since it's not technically MG, I decided to include it here in the comments section instead of in the round-up, but it's young YA (ages 12 and up) and I know some of my 6th grade students will love it. The link is here:

  2. I'm behind in writing as well so you're not alone Shannon. Thanks for another day of great links.


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.
