MMGM Links (5/7/13)

Sigh--I really thought I'd have time for an MMGM this week (I'm reading a book I LOVE). But alas, another weekend got away from me.  So all I have are links. But before we get to that, I also have last weeks winner to announce.

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 at SWMessenger (at) hotmail (dot) com. (Make sure you put MMGM or Marvelous Middle Grade Monday in the subject line so I see it)

NOTE: I used to not have a cut-off time for adding links to the post, but with how insane my schedule is right now, if you don't email me by Sunday evening (usually around 11pm PST is when I put the links together) I can't guarantee I'll have a chance to add you. BUT, you are welcome to add your link in the comments on this post so people can find you!

*Please note: these posts are not a reflection of my own opinions on the books featured. Each blogger is responsible for their own MMGM content and I do not pre-screen posts ahead of time, nor do I control what books they choose. I simply assemble the list based on the links that are emailed to me ahead of time


  1. Glad you're reading a good book. Hope you'll share it with us.

    And thanks for posting the links.

  2. Thanks for posting links! I have a review of My Summer of Pink and Green up at

  7. It also offers optimum exposures when you're shooting backlit with the help of HDR mode. There is a host of in-camera editing options such as red-eye reduction, cropping, color balance, straightening, fish-eye effect, etc. In order to remove the lens, depress the lens release button and rotate the lens clockwise.
