FYI - I've deleted all the blogs that haven't posted since July 2014. I've starred those that haven't posted since August. If your blog was removed, but you continue posting, please send me links to your three most recent middle grade book posts, and I will reinstate your blog. Thanks so much.

It's been quite a while since I've posted anything here, but I assure you that the blog listings are always being updated. In fact, just this week several new blogs have been added including Kelly Hess, author of The BlackMyst trilogy, which is getting great reviews, and Mark Feggeler, author of The Psi Squad, perfect for kids who love spy books.

We've also added several new review sites including Literary Hoots, Seraphina Reads and Kid Book List.

Please support our middle grade bloggers by checking out our lists and sharing them with a friend. Thank you!

Hi Bloggers!

If you're blog is listed on Middle Grade Mania, please note that I will be visiting every site over the next couple of months. Blogs that have posted about middle grade books less than once a week over the past 3 months will be moved to a new category - OCCASIONAL MG POSTER

Those blogs who have posted about MG books less than 3 times in the past 3 months will be removed from the list.

Middle Grade books are fiction and non-fiction books written for ages 8 to 14.

Thank you.
