Reviews of middle grade and YA fantasy and science fiction
1. This week's round-up of middle grade fantasy and sci fi from around the blogs

Welcome to another round-up of middle grade fantasy and science fiction posts from around the blogs! Every week I scour the web for posts, and this is what I found this time around.

Annother good round-up is Shannon Messenger's Marvelous Middle Grade Monday feature, where Shannon cheerleads an enthusiastic cabal of active contributors. I feel rather wistful that I haven't been able to generate the same excitement for my round-ups; out of all the links below, only one was sent directly too me, and because I look for posts written on any day of the week, I don't expect people to mention these round-ups when they review mf sff.

So anyway, feel free to send me links! You can even send me links to posts you didn't write! Authors--you are welcome to send me reviews from the past week! (I do, however, always reserve the right not to include reviews that are too brief or insubstantial to seem worth linking too, or which don't seem a good fit to me). My email address is charlotteslibrary at gmail dot com.

Feel free to review more new releases of mg sff! There are lots of books that get almost no blog coverage at all--I had time on my hands this morning, and looked for reviews of recent releases, and came up virtually empty.

Mentions of these round-ups are also appreciated--thanks all of you who've done so in the past!
