MMGM Links (11/10/14)

In the middle of the EVERBLAZE tour (if you're in Houston, come see me tonight at Blue Willow Bookshop at 5:00pm! And if you're in Dallas or Phoenix area, check my EVENTS PAGE for where to catch me) so my brain is a bit jet-lagged and loopy.

But here's the MMGM links--sorry if there's mistakes (and please don't email me with corrections, I won't be able to fix them)

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 it gets sorted accurately) You MUST email me your link by Sunday evening in order to be included in the list of links. (usually before 11pm PST is safe--but if I'm traveling it can vary. When in doubt, send early!)

If you miss the cutoff, you are welcome to add your link in the comments on this post so people can find you, but I will not have time to update the post. Same goes for typos/errors on my part. I do my best to build the links correctly, but sometimes deadline-brain gets the best of me, and I'm sorry if it does. For those wondering why I don't use a Linky-widget instead, it's a simple matter of internet safety. The only way I can ensure that all the links lead to safe, appropriate places for someone of any age is if I build them myself. It's not a perfect system, but it allows me to keep better control.

Thank you so much for being a part of this awesome meme, and spreading the middle grade love!

*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 reviews 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. 


  1. Thanks for doing this, Shannon. Glad to hear the tour is going well.

  2. Hope your having fun on your tour Shannon!!! As I said before, if you ever come to Nebraska, please blog about it beforehand so I can ask my parents if I can meet you. I'd love to see you in person because your my favorite author and I love all your books!!! But can anyone tell me what the back of the EVERBLAZE book jacket says? KEEPER and EXILE both have some text from the book on the back and I thought that this one might have it too. I don't have it yet and it's been driving me crazy!

  3. Loved Everblaze!!! Brant was so creepy I had nightmares. But in a good way..... and it had Fitz in it too!! He was so pretty...................... (smiles and stares dreamily into space)

  4. Shannon really needs to talk to her agent about making Keeper of the Lost Cities into a movie. Am I right? I mean, the series is amazing and it is really popular. And plus I'd love to see all my favorite characters on the big screen! ;-) :-) I can see it now. Keeper of the Lost Cities - based on the book by Shannon Messenger. Has a nice ring to it don't you think!?!


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
