This Week on The Book Smugglers:
It’s another busy one as we return to our first full week, post-Smugglivus! On Monday, we kick off the week with a cover reveal for new speculative fiction anthology, The Other Half of the Sky. Then, we celebrate the release of YA thriller What We Saw at Night with an Inspirations & Influences guest post from author Jacqueline Mitchard (plus giveaway), followed by our joint review of the book.
On Tuesday, Ana reviews historical YA novel Navigating Early by Clare Vanderpool.
Then, we are thrilled to present our first official Old School Wednesday – a new weekly feature in which we endeavor to review old school titles (published at least five years earlier). To kick things off, Ana reviews historical YA novel Green Glass Sea by Ellen Klages (2006), and Thea tackles the third and concluding novel in the Darkangel trilogy, The Pearl of the Soul of the World by Meredith Ann Pierce (1990).
On Thursday, Thea reviews middle grade folktale The Cats of Tanglewood Forest by Charles de Lint, illustrated by Charles Vess.
And on Friday, we close out the week with Ana’s review of fantasy novel The Siren Depths by Martha Wells, meanwhile Thea is over at Kirkus with a review of science fiction thriller The Explorer by James Smythe.
It’s another busy week! Until tomorrow, we remain…
