Smugglers’ Stash and News

Hello everybody and happy Sunday to all!

Before I talk about the stuff we have planned for next week, here’s some of the things in my mind this Sunday:

February Newsletter:

Our second issue of the Book Smuggler Newsletter will be going out early this week. Issue #2 (or, the Immortals/Reincarnation Issue) will feature an exclusive Newsletter-only interview with Jodi Meadows, author of Incarnate , a giveaway for subscribers, our first entry in a brand new feature called From The Vaults as well as a sneak peek at some of our scheduled guest posts and what we are going to be reviewing in February, and more. You can still subscribe in time to get the second issue:

Megan Whalen Turner Week:

The lovely Chachic from Cachic’s Book Nook has an undying love for the Queen’s Thief Series by Megan Whalen Turner and decided to run a whole week of guest posts to celebrate the series. Guests included Sarah Rees Brennan, Elizabeth Wein, Angie from Angieville, Megan Whalen Turner herself and many more.

As you know, I too, LOVE THIS SERIES and was very happy to have been invited to take part. I fangirled my way through my contribution. Go check it out: Why I Adore the Queen’s Thief Series.

I highly recommend you read the posts and then RUN to get the books. They are totally worth it.

This Week on The Book Smugglers:

On Monday, Ana talks about Someone Else’s Life by Katie Dale…

On Tuesday, Thea reviews Briar Rose by Jane Yolen, a retelling of Sleeping Beauty and an American Library Association “100 Best Books for Teens”.

On Wednesday, Ana reviews The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis and later on the day, we join the celebration on the 50th Anniversary of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time

On Thursday, we welcome our friend Karen Mahoney to the blog to talk about her second book The Wood Queen, which will be released in early February. Thea also posts her review of Shadowcry by Jenna Burtenshaw later in the day.

On Friday, we post an interview with Julianna Baggott, author of Pure and Thea follows it with a review of the book.

And that’s it from us today! As usual, we remain…

    I think I’m signed up to the mailing list, but is there a way I can get new posts emailed to me? I don’t want to miss out on things, but I’m not always on twitter when you mention that there’s a new post.
