  1. Awesome IMM! I'm also a big Tamora Pierce fan.

    Hourglass looks so good! I already have it pre-ordered. Enjoy your new books!

  2. James, do you have a contact at Scholastic you would be willing to share? I have been digging and digging and only can get automated e-mails. :(

    They publish some of my favorite books.

    Thank you, if you can help and if you can't for listening (reading?) my rambling.

  3. Send Stay to me! I love Deb, I know most people have a hard time with her books, but she's one of those authors who I 'get' more than other people, so I'm not surprised to hear you say that.

    Yes! Exposed is amazing. I just sent my ARC and finished copy with a friend to NYC to get signed. I LOVED that book, but then again I love photography. It's a great debut and I was surprised by my interest since verse is not really my thing.

  4. yay you got them!! and if you want to keep that book you can..... :P

  5. OOo, they all look so fun! Great IMM! :D

  6. Tons of books! Wow! And I'm SO looking forward to the Abandon giveaway! :D

    About the Egmont thing--I was kind of curious if they might be affiliated with Random House, too. At ALA the Egmont booth was inside the Random House booth, so I kind of assumed they were connected. *shrug*

  7. Wow!! What a mailbox! Enjoy all your great reads!
