It’s December, and you know what that means!
What is Smugglivus, you may ask? From The Book Smugglers’ post: “Smugglivus is our month-long (ok, technically it’s about five weeks long) end of the year celebration. Back in our first year of The Book Smugglers in 2008, we wanted to do something special at the end of the year leading up to our blog anniversary in early January. So, we came up with the idea to host a holiday bonanza to celebrate our favorite books, authors, and bloggers of the year. Thus, inspired by Seinfeld’s infamous Festivus, Smugglivus was born. Each year, Smugglivus begins on December 1 and features guest posts from our favorite people across the interwebs (with a healthy serving of our regular reviews and giveaways, of course). The event ends with a bang on January 7, our very own blogiversary. (It’s our sixth this year, can you believe it?)“
I am happy to say that I am participating this year! My prior contributions to Smugglivus: Smugglivus 2012; Smugglivus 2011.
My post went up at The Book Smugglers yesterday: Smugglivus 2013 Guest Blogger: Liz Burns of A Chair, A Fireplace and a Tea Cozy.
It has my top 8 titles for 2013. Here’s a bit of a teaser. In looking at my top 8, I saw a theme — and a bit of a surprising one. What was it? Well, all the books that were my favorites were about broken people or broken places. To find out the exact titles, go over to my post at The Book Smugglers.
Either here or there, let me know what you think of my top 8!
