This Week on Smugglivus:
Later today, we host a stop on Carrie Jones’s blog tour for Entice, as Carrie talks about her favorite things of 2010 (plus, a giveaway opportunity).
On Monday, it’s full-on fantasy day, with guest author Mark Charan Newton and his Smugglivus contribution, followed by Cindy of the Fantasy Book Critic Team as our guest blogger du jour. And Thea (finally) reviews Midsummer Night by Freda Warrington. For reals.
On Tuesday, author of YA zombie awesomeness Dan Waters is our guest author, followed by the fantastic Danielle of Opinionated, Me?
On Wednesday, fantasy author Rachel Neumeier stops by with her guest post, followed by Lenore of YA (and frequently Dystopian-centric) blog Presenting Lenore.
Thursday, soon-to-be debut novelist Rhiannon Hart, of the awesome self-titled blog, is over to share her news. Later in the day, Ana (a different Ana!) of Things Mean a Lot stops by, and Thea reviews The Native Star by M.K. Hobson.
On Friday, romance author Rose Lerner joins us for a post, followed by the lovely Kenda of Lurv ala Mode, and Thea’s review of Mr. Monster.
On Saturday, we close out the week and celebrate Christmas with our second official guest publisher giveaway! Kathryn McKenna of Simon & Schuster UK tells us all about what we can expect from the imprint in the coming year, with a full-on giveaway, of course!
It’s another insanely packed week – but it’s time to celebrate! I, Thea, am almost done with final exams, and what better way to relax than plowing headlong into bookish madness?
In honor of this weekend’s films:
