MMGM Links (5/26/14)

Finally back from traveling--thank you all SO MUCH for bearing with me. Things should go back to normal around here now, though I'm skipping the MMGM shoutout this week because with the holiday today it's kind of a light blogging week. Still, there were a few of you loyal MMGMers posting, so I put together the links:
- Rcubed has part 2 of her DIARY OF A WIMPY KID analysis. Click HERE to see what she has to say.

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. (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. 


  1. Here's mine! I review (and giveaway) Revolution of Evelyn Serrano: My MMGM link

  2. Thanks for continuing to keep me in the list. In always have a MG review up on Monday, and they are. Always MG appropriate! I think a lot of bloggers are busy with Armchair BEA today... Or maybe barbecues, if they have real lives! MG is getting a LOT of love all over the place, which is good to see!


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.
