MMGM Links (5/30/16)

Here's this week's MMGM links (sorry if I missed anyone--we lost a kitty today, so my brain is a little shot)
- Mark Baker wants everyone to solve THE MYSTERY OF MEMORIAL DAY. Click HERE to see why
- Andrea Mack is spotlighting JUST LIKE ME. Click HERE to see why. 
- Got My Book has a post on the benefits of audiobooks HERE. And a review of THE IRON TRIAL if you click HERE. 
- Greg Partridge is raving about ALL RISE FOR THE HONORABLE PERRY T. COOK. Click HERE to see what he thought.   
- Rosi Hollinbeck is reviewing--and GIVING AWAY--CICI RENO: #MIDDLESCHOOLMATCHMAKER. Click HERE for details. 
- 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.
