this week's round up of middle grade fantasy and sci fi from around the blogs!

Welcome to this week's round up of middle grade sci fi and fantasy from around the blogs etc.!

first--nominations of the Cybils Awards open October 1.  Any book published in the US or Canada between Oct 16 2022 - October 15 2023 is eligible, and I have helpfully (as is my wont) put stars in front of eligible titles in Elementary/middle grade speculative fiction (to the best of my current knowledge) in this week's round-up.  Here's who will be reading for the first and second rounds in in the two (EMG and Ya) spec fic categories.
