Ahoy, fellow readers, and Happy Sunday!
On this edition of The Smugglers’ Stash…
A New ALA Award:
The ALA has created an annual prize for gay and lesbian literature for young readers! The prize will be awarded on January 10th next year. This is wonderful news, and we could not be happier (Thanks to librarian Mieneke for the heads up).
This Week on The Book Smugglers:
Down to business. On Monday, Ana reviews YA historical novel Flygirl by Sherri L. Smith.
On Tuesday, we have another installment of “Smugglers’ Ponderings” – in which the fickle, fickle Ana talks about reading cycles.
Wednesday, Thea reviews post-apocalyptic horror novel The Reapers are the Angels by Alden Bell.
Then on Thursday, Thea reviews YA speculative fiction novel The Tomorrow Code by Brian Falkner.
On Friday, we do “What She Said” – in which both Smugglers review a book the other has read, reviewed and loved. Ana takes on The Magicians and Mrs. Quent by Galen Beckett, while Thea tackles The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin.
Until Monday, we remain…
