This week’s round-up of middle grade fantasy and science fiction from around the blogs (1/2/22)

Here’s the first round-up of 2022–may we all have a great year ahead, in which all books are page turners and our library holds come in gradually and not ten or so all on the same day.
Nothing from me this week, but this will change; there are lots and lots of great books I’ve read but haven’t reviewed yet. If I missed your post, please let me know!
