Smugglers Stash

Smugglers’ Stash and News

As you read this post on this here blog on this beautiful Sunday, I will be landing in Rome to celebrate mine and Dear Partner’s 10th anniversary. I am gone for the week and leave Thea to hold down the fort.

So today the Stash is a super short one.

This Week on The Book Smugglers:

On Monday, we start the week off by hosting a stop on The Bone Season Blog Tour with Thea’s review of the book, a highly anticipated (and much buzzed about) read.

On Tuesday, Jersey Angel (a Contemporary YA book that Ana read and loved) author Beth Ann Bauman stops by to talk about writing a sexually unapologetic female main character.

Wednesday it’s time for this month’s Old School Wednesdays Readalong! We read Sorcery & Cecelia by Patricia C. Wrede & Caroline Stevermer, and open the floor to discussion.


On Thursday, Ana reviews The Messengers by Edward Hogan – a new Horror YA novel to be published in the UK in early September.
