Letterbox Love is a weekly feature that is hosted by Lynsey at Narratively Speaking and is a way for us to share the books that come through our letterbox, galleys and e-books (through our electronic letterbox) and any other bookish goodies that we want to tell you about.
Another two-weeker this time as I was away last weekend. And a good haul too! I am very excited to read some of these!
This sounds like so much fun and a very interesting read. Its a memoir rather than a fiction book about Maya finding a 1950's 'Guide to teenage popularity' and decides to follow its suggestions to see if the 50's rules still apply. It should be interesting especially as Maya is a self-proclaimed geek and I am wondering if it really does work.

These came though from Penguin as part of the run up to a new series from these authors. Dangerous Creatures. I am looking forward to reading them as they are books 3 and 4 of a series I started and loved but never got round to finishing. I will be reading these very quickly!

Thanks MiraInk for this, it sounds great. A road trip with twist, I believe there is only one of the five main characters on a road trip and the others have all been impacted by this one girl along the way. It sounds brilliant and I cannot wait to give it a read!

I loved Emma's first book and its fantastically developed main character and The Fearless gives off a similar vibe in that aspect - although a completely new book this sounds like a gritty, pebble dystopian with an enemy base provided by the most obvious enemy base I could think of - a very well known shopping centre! I can't wait to read it and thanks so much to Random House for sending it over!

This sounds awesome. A teen fiction book with recipe ideas throughout and budding romance. It definitely sounds like fun and I can't wait to read it and have a few laughs of my own! Thanks Stripes Publishing for this!

I have been wanting to read these for a while and coming up with something special for the blog for a certain event coming soon I thought they would be the perfect examples of what I wanted. Thankfully my awesome manager smuggled her two year olds copies out of the house for me so I am going to read them quick and get them back before she notices! Thanks Vicky :)
