MMGM Links (10/7/13)

First of all: THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the incredible enthusiasm and support for EXILE!!!

I know some of you are waiting for your pre-order swag to be mailed off--and that is coming, I promise! As soon as I get home from tour next week. And to all of you who've already read and emailed me to let me know you loved it--THANK YOU. I promise I'll reply. Life is just a wee bit hectic right now, given that I'm still on tour and still drafting KEEPER 3 and so behind on, well, everything! I'm trying to catch up one step at a time!

Also: if you missed it last week, there's still chance to enter my EXILE Launch Celebration Giveaway! You can find all the details HERE.

And now, onto the MMGM links!* (Sorry if you sent yours late and I missed it. I'm on Minneapolis time. And I'm sorry if these are messed up--my brain is MUSH from all the travel. Bear with me!)

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. Hey Shannon, hope you're getting some sleep at some point!

    I was late with my MMGM link, so here it is:

  2. Finally finished LTSB. O-M-G!!! That was a heck of cliffhanger, my friend. I think I loved this one even better than LTSF! So, so, so, so good!!

    AND . . . Scott has decided that he is going to read them now, since he has to wait for the next Keeper. He started LTSF last night. So cute! :)


Yay-I love comments! Thank you so much! (But please remember to keep your comments spoiler-free. Also, I try to keep this a happy, positive place. Any arguing or intense debate--on any subject will be removed. Let's keep this a safe, fun space.
