Mailbox Monday – Dec 21/09

Spread the love

I knew it had been a while since I’d done Mailbox Monday but I didn’t realize just HOW long. It’s been 4 months. It’s partly because I’ve been accepting less review copies lately and also I was going through a non-blogging phase. Anyways I’d like to start back up, if not every week, then every other or so.

Titles, author, summary and where it came from are below. The book titles are linked to where you can buy them and help support SMS Book Reviews. Money received through amazon will go towards sending giveaway books and the like.

See what everyone else got in the mail at The Printed Page.

In the last two weeks I received:

Received through direct contact with the author through my blog.

I missed talking about a whole bunch of books in the last four months and there is no way I could write about them all in this post but I just wanted to mention that I received a large amount of books and kits from Scholastic (Klutz and Chicken Socks) and those will be reviewed over the next few months.
