This week's round-up of middle grade fantasy and sci fi from around the blogs (10/11/15)

I was at Kidlicton in Baltimore this past weekend, and somehow had other things to do than read Bloglovin, which is why I'm late getting this up.  Kidlitcon was Great as always (the only bad thing was the alarm clock in my room going off ever hour the first night, and it couldn't be unplugged), and do come next year! (Melissa of Book Nut is hosting it in Kansas!!!!  yay Melissa!).

So Cybils nominations close Oct. 15....and there are lots of elementary/middle grade speculative fiction books that can still be nominated (which you can do here)!  Here's a nice little list at Views from the Tesseract; The Dragon's Guide is now nominated, but none of the rest are....

And here's the round up; let me know if I missed your post!
