MMGM Links (12/7/16)

Bonjour from Paris!

My brain is a bit frazzled from jet lag and a million events--and I'm putting these together on Paris time so I'm sure I'm missing some of you (it's only 4pm for CA and 2am for me. Side note: I am very tired). But here's the MMGM links I found in my inbox:
- Sue Kooky joins the MMGM fun with a feature on WONDER. Click HERE to welcome her to the group.  
- Suzanne Warr has is cheering for THE COUNTERFEIT PRINCESS.  Click HERE to see why.
- Carl from Boys Rule! Boys Read! is spotlighting KRINGLE. Click HERE for his review.
- Greg Pattridge is cheering for DIEGO'S DRAGON: BATTLE AT TENOCHTITLAN  Click HERE to read his thoughts. 
- Mark Baker is raving about THE STORY OF DIVA AND FLEA. Click HERE to see why.   
 - Karen Yingling also always has some awesome MMGM recommendations for you. Click HERE to which ones she picked this time!   
- Joanne Fritz always has an MMGM for you. Click HERE to see what she's talking about this week. 
- The Mundie Moms are always huge supporters of middle grade. Click HERE for their Mundie Kids site.   

If you would like to join in the MMGM fun, all you have to do is blog about a middle grade book you love on a Monday (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--and please don't forget to say what book you're featuring) You MUST email me your link by Sunday evening in order to be included in the list of links for the coming Monday. (usually before 11pm PST is safe--but if I'm traveling it can vary. When in doubt, send early!) (Also make sure the post you send me is a new post, not one from earlier in the week. I try to keep the content fresh)

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 all the links, Shannon! I also have a MMGM today -- a slightly spooky story called THE ELEVATOR GHOST

  2. Here is my link. I reviewed a non fiction middle grade- Edible Science

  3. Hope you're having an amazing time on Paris! :D Here's my MMGM:

  4. Awww. I forgot about the time change. I have a Giveaway and Review of Big Top Burning this week.

    Hope you are having a blast, Shannon. Thanks for doing this.

  5. Just realized you may not have received my MMGM review link on Sunday. It's called LOST IN THE SUN, by Lisa Graff.

    Hope you had a great time in Paris!


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.
