Marvelous Middle Grade Monday--Seriously Awesome Linky Love

Okay, I fail. 

I am soooooooooooooooooooo slammed at the moment that I am WAY behind on my reading--but at least now you guys know why. They whole owing TWO Book 2s thing--not to mention gearing up to launch TWO series in TWO different age categories--is... beyond intense

I'm not complaining--not even a little bit (though I *might* be whining), but I hope you guys won't hate me for occasionally having to let some balls drop. Like this week's MMGM. But I PROMISE I'm going to do my best to support the meme, by linking you guys (and I do still have a couple features coming up this month--and they have AWESOME giveaways with them so stay tuned). 

But for today, you guys are carrying the torch--and boy are you doing it proudly. Check out all this awesome middle grade love.

If you would like to join in the MMGM fun, all you have to do is blog about a middle grade book you love (contests, author interviews and whatnot also count--but are most definitely not required) and email me the title of the book you're featuring and a link to your blog. It's easier if you email me before Monday, that way your link will be included in the post from the moment it goes live. But if you decide to spontaneously join the fun, I do update the post at several points throughout the Monday. Just email me a link and I'll add you when I do!

**Note: Thanks to a boatload of spam--and my missing a bunch of important emails because of it--I'm now using a new email address. So make sure you update your records because I'm slowly phasing the other address out. New email is: SWMessenger (at) hotmail (dot) com. Hopefully now I won't miss some of your MMGMs, like I have been.**
