This week on the Book Smugglers

We have quite the week ahead of us!

On Monday, Ana reviews This Duchess of Mine by Eloisa James, fifth book in the Desperate Duchesses series, the one that finally brings together the Duke and Duchess of Beaumont. If you read this series, you KNOW how this book is important. And as a teaser I shall say only this: it’s good. It’s really good.

On Tuesday, Ana reviews Black and White by Jackie Kessler and Caitlin Kittredge. It’s about superheroines. In the future. Really. What’s not to like?

On Wednesday, Thea reviews Flood by Stephen Baxter. It is the first in a post-apocalyptic science fiction duology.

On Thursday, Ana tackles a classic author: she will review her first ever Georgette Heye, Frederica.

Finally on Friday Thea reviews Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey and we will have a HUGE giveaway with it!

Movies, glorious movies!

Leaving behind the BIG disappointment that was Terminator : Salvation what else have we got to look forward to?

HARRY POTTER BIATCHES !! and here is the new Poster:

Other than that, I am really looking forward to the new Quentin Tarantino movie: Inglorious Basterds.

There is a great, positive buzz coming from Cannes that has me all tingly inside. The movie stars Brad Pitt and it is set in Nazi-occupied France during World War II, where a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as “The Basterds” are chosen specifically to spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and brutally killing Nazis. And just have a look at the teaser:


That’s it for today: have a great Bank Holiday tomorrow!

    Congrats to all the winners!

    I still haven’t read the book before This Duchess of Mine (yes, I’m behind), but that won’t stop me reading the review 🙂 And the Santa Olivia cover is….WOW! I’m never read any of Jacqueline Carey’s books, so I’m looking forward to the introduction later this week 🙂

    Thank you Ana & Thea for another exciting week 🙂

    Hmmm… your first Heyer? I’m looking forward to your take on it. I totally glommed all of Heyer’s books a couple of years ago.

    And I am so getting the EJ this week.

    Congrats everyone and thanks for Revealed!

    Good week coming up, and I always enjoy reading your Lost recaps. Also waiting to see what you thought of Frederica – I read Heyer years and years ago, and that was one of my favorites.

    Hey Ana, Frederica happens to be the only Heyer I have had the pleasure of reading. I am looking forward to hearing you thoughts on it!

    I’ve yet to read Heyer. I’ve been slowing building my Heyer stash. I’m up to 5 of her books, not this one though. Depending on your review I might need to put this one on my TBB list.

    The Carey I’ve been looking forward to for some time now.

    Gotta love Harry Potter. 😀
