MMGM Links (2/23/15)

Scrambling a bit (when aren't I, anymore? le sigh), so here's what I HOPE are correct MMGM links:
- Alex at Randomly Reading is cheering for NICKEL BAY NICK. Click HERE to see why
- Susan Olson is gushing about THE DRAGON OF ROME. Click HERE for her feature. 
- Michael Gettel-Gilmarten is highlighting OVER SEA, UNDER STONE. Click HERE to see why. 
- Suzanne Warr thinks THE DREAMER is a dream. Click HERE to see why. 
- Greg Pattridge is WAITING FOR UNICORNS (and really, who isn't?) :) . Click HERE to read his feature.
- Rosi Hollinbeck is reviewing--and GIVING AWAY--MOONPENNY ISLAND. Click HERE for details.   
- Katie Fitzgerald is also featuring MOONPENNY ISLAND. Click HERE to see her thoughts. 
- Dorine White is breaking Brandon Mull news. Click HERE to see what it is.  
- Katie Fitzgerald has ALL THE ANSWERS. Click HERE to see why. 
- Laurisa White Reyes is championing THE MIRACULOUS JOURNEY OF EDWARD TULANE. Click HERE to see why.  
- Pam Torres always has an MMGM up on her blog. Click HERE to see what she's spotlighting this week.  
- Joanne Fritz always has an MMGM for you. Click HERE to see what she's talking about this week. 
- The Mundie Moms are always part of the MMGM fun (YAY!). Click HERE to see their newest recommendations. And if you aren't also following their Mundie Kids site, get thee over THERE and check out all the awesome! 
- The lovely Shannon O'Donnell always has an MMGM ready for you! Click HERE to see what she's featuring this week.
- Karen Yingling also always has some awesome MMGM recommendations for you. Click HERE to which ones she picked this time! 
- Deb Marshall is a MMGM regular. Click HERE to see what she's featuring this week.   



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 for the coming Monday. (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.

KOTLC Fandom Day (psst--there's a giveaway)

Hey guys!

Just wanted to give a quick heads up to let you know about something fun happening on Instagram today.

Some of the awesome KEEPER fans over there declared today KOTLC Fandom Day and are encouraging everyone to write their team  name on their hand and post a pic. And I thought--wow, what a fun idea. (also I HAVE THE BEST FANS EVER). So I decided to sweeten the deal and add a giveaway.

You can only enter on Instagram (sorry if you're not on that platform--that's where the fun started, so I had to keep it there because I'll be drawing the winners from the hashtag). But you can definitely enter through a parents' account (or sibling or friend) if you don't have your own.

Here's a handy graphic I posted so you know how this works:


And here's the rules I posted with it:

WOO--as declared by @lostkeeper, today is KOTLC Day!! So I thought I'd reward anyone who participates with a GIVEAWAY. 
Up for grabs are 3 doodled on hardcovers of KEEPER book 1, which will go to 3 random winners.  
To enter:
Write your Team Name on your hand (can be any team you want, so long as it has to do with the KEEPER series) 
Post a pic of your doodled-on hand on Instagram by 11:59pm ET on 2/12/15--and MAKE SURE you use the hashtag: #KOTLCFANDOMDAY 
The three winners will be tagged on THIS PHOTO to let them know they've won.  
As for questions you probably have:  Only one entry per person. You can only enter on Instagram. Contest is only for today (2/12/15). International entries welcome. 


So if you're on Instagram, head over there for all the fun. And if you're not, never fear, I'll have other giveaways over the next few months.

Happy KOTLC Fandom Day everyone! (Have I mentioned my fans are THE BEST???)

TEAM KEEPER GROUP HUG!
