MMGM Links (6/19/17)

Believe it or not, I'm STILL in the deadline cave (dear NIGHTFALL--why are you trying so hard to destroy me?). My editor has *most* of the draft, but I'm still fighting to write the rest, so... going straight to the MMGM links again:
- Mark Baker is solving THE MYSTERY OF THE GALLOPING GHOST. Click HERE to see what he thought.  
- Children's Books Heal is spreading some love for THE ONLY ROAD. Click HERE to see why.
- Completely Full Bookself is recommending FISH IN A TREE.  Click HERE to find their feature.
- Rosi Hollinbeck is reviewing--and GIVING AWAY--INNOCENT HEROES. Click HERE to learn more.
- Greg Pattridge is wondering at WELCOME TO WONDERLAND--BEACH PARTY SURF MONKEY. Click HERE to read his review.

- Suzanne Warr is cheering for the LORD OF MONSTERS. Click HERE to see why.
- Carl at Boys Rule! Boys Read! has a double feature this week. Click HERE for the first half of his memorable books from the last 10 years. And click HERE for the rest. 
- Dorine White sees nothing stinky about THIS BOOK STINKS. Click HERE to read her feature. 
- Shannon O'Donnell is back--and planning a weekly MMGM again. Click HERE to see what she's talking about this week.    
- 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.
