Letterbox Love (#37)

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. This post is a means by which to highlight the books we get in the post and beyond, and especially to bring attention to those books which may be sat on our shelves for a little while yet that we love all the same.

So as you may have noticed I didn’t have any posts last weekend or the week before because of moving house and my friends hen do. Therefore the above books with Topsy are from the past two weeks.
I want to say a massive thank you to the publishers just before I list these books. They don’t have to send out books to us and I really appreciate each and every single one I get. Special thanks has to go out to Hannah at Walker for picking me to be one of the very early receivers of The Night Itself as we are doing a special video to launch the title. 
For Review: 

This title was sent from Amulet. Its a graphic novel aimed at the YA market and tbh whilst Graphic Novels are popular with YA there aren’t tonnes out there aimed specifically for the age range. I can’t wait to read it. Find out more by clicking the link above.
Oh, you don’t know how excited I am for this. I LOVE Zoe, she is the coolest, nicest person and her books are incredible. The Night Itself is the first in a new trilogy and there’s some exciting things planned for it which I will tell you all in due course! Thanks again Hannah.


The first Geekhood book was awesome and I love chatting to Andy on twitter about random stuff. I got this through the post and an invite to his launch party but unfortunately I couldn’t make it to the launch. Thanks Stripe Books for sending me a copy of this 

The Shadow Lantern by Teresa Flavin

The third and final book in the Blackhope Enigma series by Teresa Flavin! I don’t want it to be over! I loved the first two books and I was longing to find out what happened next, thanks to Liz and Templar Books I can!! 


This was an unsolicited review copy from Quercus and I’m not sure if I will actually read it. It sounds great but I don’t know if I will get chance, if I don’t I may have to call on someone to guest review it for me!  


Again this was unsolicited but I actually really wanted this one anyway! I loved The Look by Sophia Bennett and this one sounds like it will be just as good. Thanks ChickenHouse


This was a third unsolicited review copy and unfortunately I haven’t read the others in the series it belongs to, hopefully I’ll be able to pass it on or get the others. Thanks Headline for this.

 These both came through from Hot Key Books, I am intrigued by The Beautiful and The Cursed so I wanna read it, but not as much as I am dying to read Paper Aeroplanes. I read Dawn O’Porter’s short story on the world book day app and I really enjoyed that so hopefully this will hit the same spots. Thanks to Hot Key for these! 
Also for review I received all 11 books in the Spooks series by Joseph Delaney. These were sent by Red Fox as part of a competition. I am going to be reading all 11 books and posting mini-reviews of them by the end of August, or at least I hopefully will! I can’t wait to dig into this series and I am VERY excited to go see the movie later in the year. Thanks Red Fox! 

  • I hadn’t actually heard of You Don’t Know Me when it showed up on my doorstep, but it does look good! And wow, that is a lot of books!

  • Mel

    Some great books this week – I love it when there is a whole series to read and Spooks sounds like a fun series! 🙂

  • I love the Spooks series! Hope you enjoy them.

  • Ahh! You have Zoe Marriotts new book! Very, very, very jealous! lol – I hope you enjoy it. It sounds like it will be amazing 🙂

  • Raimy, I am so jealous of you right now. You got seriously amazing books, enjoy reading them all! I got the Spooks books too, I read the first one and I’m on the second one now – I really like them, and I hope you do too! I can’t wait for the movie either 😀

  • I adore Zoe Marriott’s books, and can’t wait to read The Night Itself- lucky you!
    I’m also jealous of Dead Silence- I love this series (any chance you want to pass it on to me?)
    😉
    Have a great week!

  • these books look great! I’ve read both of the Hot Key titles, they’re brilliant. Also, the Bully for You short story on the world book day app is from the perspective of a bully in Paper Aeroplanes whose deep feelings aren’t really shown in the book. :)Hope you enjoy all of these!
