This week's round-up of Middle Grade fantasy and science fiction postings from around the blogs (12/29/13)

Here's the last round-up of 2013, to which I contributed absolutely nothing, my excuse being that I was in a not very large house for the past week with six children and two sisters, two spouses, and one mother.  My sisters and I played very nicely together.

Let me know if I missed your post; I was also a bit light on blog reading this week.

  1. I was light on blog reading too - the holidays are such a busy time!

  2. I think everyone is taking a break from reading blogs and writing posts over the holidays. Happy Holidays!

  3. It's difficult to keep up during the holidays - I think you get brownie points just for doing the round-up!
