MMGM Links (5/23/16)

Tonight's my last night "off" before entering the revision-deadline cave, so once again I'm putting the MMGM links together a little earlier than normal to grab a last night of decent sleep. So if you sent yours late and I missed you--sorry. I'm sure I'll be back to crazy late nights starting tomorrow.

- Carl at Boys Rule Boys Read! has four non-fiction recs this week. Click HERE to see what they are. 
- Michelle Mason is COUNTING THYME. Click HERE to see why. 
- Reading Violet is trying to solve A RIDDLE IN RUBY with an author interview. Click HERE for all the fun.
-  Suzanne Warr is spotlighting THE TURTLE OF OMAN. Click HERE to see what she thought.
- Michael Gettel-Gilmartin is cheering for CICI RENO: #MIDDLESCHOOLMATCHMAKER. Click HERE to see why
- Greg Pattridge is calling MAYDAY. Click HERE to see what he thought.  
- The Mundie Moms are always huge supporters of middle grade. Click HERE for their Mundie Kids site.  
- 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.

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. Forgot to send mine in time- Today on MMGM an interview with MG author Daryl Womack- Tales of Westerford

  2. Will you be coming to the Decatur Book Festival in GA?
