MMGM Links (12/26/16)

Super light week this week, what with the holidays. But there are still a few MMGMs floating around the blogosphere. So here are the links:
- A Bookshelf Monstrosity is talking about BLEED, BLISTER, PUKE, AND PURGE: THE DIRTY SECRETS BEHIND EARLY AMERICAN MEDICINE. Click HERE to see what they thought. 
- Renell Aysling is sharing a list of books that made her love reading as a kid. Click HERE to check it out!
- Carl at Boys Rule Boys Read! has some special messages for everyone during these holiday weeks. Click HERE to read them.  
- Justin Talks Books is highlighting DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: DOUBLE DOWN! Click HERE to see what he thought
- Greg Pattridge wants everyone to CLICK HERE TO START. Click HERE to read his review. 
- The Mundie Moms are always huge supporters of middle grade. Click HERE for their Mundie Kids site.  
- 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  

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!

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.
