MMGM Links (6/10/13)

Gah--I really wanted to have an MMGM for you guys this week. But alas, my brain is still recovering from my trip up to San Francisco (which was AWESOME, btw. Such amazing bookstores!) so I'm going to have to bail on you guys one more time. Hopefully next week! And in the meantime, the links:

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 I see it)

NOTE: I used to not have a cut-off time for adding links to the post, but with how insane my schedule is right now, if you don't email me by Sunday evening (usually around 11pm PST is when I put the links together) I can't guarantee I'll have a chance to add you. BUT, you are welcome to add your link in the comments on this post so people can find you!

*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 posts 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 ahead of time


  1. Awesome links, as usual! One again, I didn't get my MMGM to Shannon in time (*hangs head*) but this time I have a good excuse - I was helping my mom get her brand new sheltie. It's practically impossible to drag yourself away from a cute new doggie.

    Anyway, my MMGM is Close to Famous by Joan Bauer, over at my blog:

  2. Every Day After is quite buzzy this week - being featured twice! Must check it out :)

  3. Su-weet on Let the Sky Fall!!

    Thanks for the links, Shannon and whoHOO on those bookstores!

  4. I love what you guys are usually up too. This kind of clever work and reporting!
    Keep up the fantastic works guys I've included you guys to my personal blogroll.

    Feel free to surf to my blog post - callaway golf upro mx+ gps

  5. Oooh my daughter loved the first book, would love to win this.


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.
