This Week on The Book Smugglers:

On Monday, Thea kicks off the week with a review of YA fairy tale mashup, Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross. (Spoiler alert: it was not good.)

Tuesday, Thea’s back with a review of another fantasy/fairy tale-ish novel, Secondhand Charm by Julie Berry (because, dammit, Thea is giving fairytales three chances before giving up on them altogether this week).

On Wednesday, Ana is back with her review of time travel YA novel Mr. Was by new Smuggler fave author Pete Hautman.

On Thursday, Ana reviews Transcendence by C.J. Omololu – plus we’ll have a guest post from the author as a stop on the blog tour.

Friday, we close out the week with a new edition of What She Said – in which Ana reviews The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen (one of Thea’s favorite reads of the year thus far), and Thea reviews Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein. We are VERY excited.

It’s a busy week! Until tomorrow, we remain…

    Oooh, I’m excited to read your What She Said reviews! Especially since those two rank pretty far up there on my own list of 2012 favorites thus far. Hope it’s an experiment destined for success.

    I agree, Friday sounds like fun-times!

    I had hopes for Kill Me Softly, I’ll be checking your review to see if I should still check it out.

    Seriously, cover designers just love Pete Hautman. It’s a scientific fact, I think.

    I’ve heard so many THINGS about Code Verity! Looking forward to Thea’s review!
