The One Where Ana Talks About Stuff A.K.A The Stash

Ana here! Thea is still away (sniff!sniff!) but she found a way to formally reprimand me (by way of smoke signals no less, seriously is there anything that woman can not do?) for my huge boo-boo in last week’s stash when I announced I would be writing my review of Smooth Talking Stranger last week when it should be posted this coming week. Oops. I stand here before you duly chastised: mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

So, now that we got the embarrassing boo-boo out of the way, it’s time to announce the winner of our Forest of Hands and Teeth contest.

Drums roll please:


Congratulations! Please send your snail mail address to contact AT thebooksmugglers DOT com and we will get the book to you ASAP.

This Week on the Book Smugglers:

On Monday I will be reviewing Revealed by Kate Noble – a book that took me completely by surprise and knocked me off my feet.

On Tuesday it is Thea’s turn with a review of Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George;

On Wednesday, I will be back with the review of A Taste of Magic by Tracy Madison and then again on Friday with the my review of Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas – for reals, this time.


When you thought it was all over. When you thought we had forgotten all about it…..we pull you right back in: IT IS THE WINDFLOWER WORLD TOUR!!!

The tour is still going strong: the infamous old school romance The Windflower by Laura London who is going around the world, from blogger to blogger, each then telling us what they thought about the book. It all started with Ciara and I . This week we had two updates on the tour: from The Happily Ever After’s Christine and What Women Read’s Shannon . Go and check out what they thought – the most amazing thing is: it doesn’t matter if we liked or disliked the book but that all of us so far had completely different and very interesting things to say about it. Next stop: What Kate’s Reading

The Pretty New Cover of…

Blood Promise, the 4th book in the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead (and the rest of the series also get a new design. We like it!):

And finally:

How long could you survive in the vacuum of space?

What about you???

    Congrats kathybaug!

    That Thea is cunning – smoke signals! Big Brother is obviously keeping an eye on you Ana 😉

    And I only lasted for 42 seconds…

    WTG kathybaug!

    Love the cover for Princess of the Midnight Ball. Looking forward to Thea’s review.

    And I managed to last 1 minute 23 seconds. 😯

    Hmm, I still do not see anything striking or different about the VA series except a new model…? Oh, and there’s a cursive font on there now too.

    That being said, this is one of those rare instances where I could care less what’s on the covers. They could have chupacabres copulating with Donald Trump and I wouldn’t pause, but go right into the book.

    Good to see The Windflower still surviving the blogging briny deep.

    Congratulations, kathybaug!

    Looks like a great line up for this week. As for me, I would only survive for 1 minute and 5 seconds in the vacuum of space.
