This week's round-up of middle grade sci fi and fantasy from around the blogs (9/10/17)

Welcome to this week's round-up; pleae let me know if I missed your post!

First--the window for applying to be a Cybils Judge closes tomorrow.  If you don't already know, the Cybils are awards given by children's book reviewers in a variety of categories, one of which is Elementary/Middle Grade Speculative Fiction.  There are two rounds of judging.  The first round panelists spend the fall reading the nominated books (anyone can nominate) and select a shortlist of seven, which then go on to a second panel of judges.  Reading and talking about elementary/middle grade fantasy and sci is a lovey way to spend a bit of time (clearly if you are reading this you are interested in it) so do apply!  It's a great way to make friends with other bloggers. I'm the category organizer, and I'd love to welcome new folks to the fun.
