This week's round-up of middle grade fantasy, and yes science fiction too!

Welcome to the 168th round-up of what I found in my blog reading/hunting this week of interest to readers of middle grade fantasy and science fiction.  I hunted harder than usual, because early on I had book title for some of the harder letters (Q, I'm looking at you) and I thought that maybe this would be the week where I had a full alphabet of mg sff goodness! (I even got a trial subscription to Booklist to find more titles to search for).  Alas, it was not to be.

And it was a little depressing to find so few reviews of mg sff books after so much looking.  Conclusion:  mg sff doesn't get reviewed all that much.  Or else bloggers are really good at disguising their mg sff book reviews as something else.

In any event, let me know if I missed your post!

(And perhaps think about reviewing books that begin with difficult letters of the alphabet next week--it would make me so happy to have a complete set all in one week.)
