Smugglers Stash

Smugglers Stash and News

5 weeks, several guests posts and giveaways and a grand total of 49 books reviewed later, we hereby declare our YA Appreciation Month closed. It was the best of times, but also the most mental of times and we wouldn’t have any other way! Now, while Thea is away celebrating her birthday, I bring you our stash and if you think that we are taking time off before we collapse, think again! YA Appreciation Month may be over for now – because we are bringing it back next year, baby – but we have Halloween Week ahead of us ( I hear Thea is making me have another marathon of horror movie watching) and of course, Smugglivus to organise. Plus there are simply too many books in the world to be read and as god is our witness: we will read as many as we can or die trying!!!!

Ahem. Where was I? oh, the stash.
