Letterbox Love (#36)

Welcome to Letterbox Love, this is a UK meme, hosted by the lovely Lynsey at Narratively Speaking and inspired by The Story Siren’s In My Mailbox, where we highlight the books we got in the post and beyond.

Great collection of books this week! As always, the links go to Goodreads.
For Review: 
I’m really excited to have the second book in the Tempest series by Julie Cross, I put the first off for a little while for some reason but when I did read it I really enjoyed it, I hope the second is just as good! 
The other two are Unsolicited review copies and to be honest they’re about the Fae, which means there is a good chance I wont like them. I’m going to give them a go but if I don’t I may ask for someone else to read and review them.

I am going to an event in February which OUP have arranged. This event has four authors talking about their new books but as I had only read one Tim Bowler book I thought I should probably try and get some books by the other authors read so I bought some. The only author I didn’t buy a book from was Geraldine McCaughrean but only as the only one I was interested in is her new one which doesn’t come out until April! 
I’m really excited for the event and will be reading these soon. Roscoe’s Leap sounds especially good and reminds me of Point Horror books from back in the day, especially as it was first published in 1987! 
So that is my letterbox love this week! I hope you all got some awesome books too!

    I was just thinking that I haven’t seen Gillian Cross books about for ages – then you mentioned it was first published in 1987 so that’s why it seemed familiar!

  • The Che Golden ones look intriguing. I love Fae, so I look forward to hearing more about them.

  • I loved Tempest so I’m really looking forward to Vortex. You’re very lucky to have it!
    All of the books that you received this week look really good so I’ll have to check them out. Happy reading! 🙂

  • Great books! I love Fae books so I’m interested about those Che Golden books too. And I love Tim Bowler – he’s amazing!
    Happy Reading!! 😀

  • I usually like books about fae as long as they’re the slightly evil (or a lot evil) kind. And unicorns!

  • Ah Vortex- I really want that book.
    Great book haul this week- enjoy all your new books!

  • I have just finished Vortex and I really liked it. The Feral Child sounds interesting.
    Enjoy your reads.

    My haul

  • I didn’t realise that Tempest had a sequel – even though I still need to read it :p I hope you enjoy that with your other books, Raimy! Happy reading 🙂

  • Ooh I want to read Vortex!! Perhaps Im being silly, but what’s OUP? 🙂 Happy reading!

  • The Feral Child looks quite intriguing, and so does Bloodchild! Some good looking books this week Raimy, hope you enjoy your new reads 🙂

    Here’s my Weekly Highlights this week.


  • OMG Vortex! I was like you, it took me a while to finally read Tempest and when I did, I loved it! I hope you love Vortex and all your other books! 😀

  • Nice haul. I read The Feral Child for work and was so so about it. It’s 9-12 but the characters seem much much older, I think Che would be a good teen author.

    Hope you enjoy your new reads.
