Letterbox Love (#40)

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.

Such a fantastic book haul this week, thank you to all the publishers who sent books for review, it’s very much appreciated! 
For Review: 

This was sent by the amazing Hannah at Walker Children’s Books. I raved about this one on twitter and she knew how much I oved dinosaurs so sent over a copy. I have already read it and it was awesome, review to come later in the week! 

This was sent by the awesome folks at HarperCollins and sounds just incredible, its a fantasy which has been compared to CS Lewis and Philip Pullam, so it has a huge reputation to live up to! 

The Wimpy Vampire Strikes Back – Tim Collins 

This was an unsolicited review copy sent from Michael O’Mara books. It’s the third in the Wimpy Vampire series, which is a series I am interested in but haven’t read or got… so I’m not sure if I will be reading this one, if I don’t I will donate it to a school or public library. 

Another unsolicited review copy sent through from Quercus… I’m not sure what this one is about and as it is the second in a series I haven’t started, or own, I’m not sure if I will get to read it. 
If I don’t I will make sure I get it sent to a good home. 

I am part of the blog tour for The Originals and so the lovely people at Electric Monkey sent over a copy of the book for me. I am quoted in it too like I was in Revived! yay! 

I had forgotten that I requested this one but the lovely folk at MacMillan kindly sent me over a copy so I could finally get round to reading some of Sita Brahmachari’s stuff.. I have had her other book, Artichoke Hearts on my wishlist forever but haven’t ever gotten round to getting hold of a copy. I am looking forward to Kite Spirit! 


I found these beauties in town yesterday at a great price so couldn’t resist! I have all of them on my wishlist except The Dead of Winter which I actually have on my kindle but as I don’t like using my kindle I decided to buy it again as a hard copy. 

  • Lots of lovely books! The dinosaur one is perfect for you!

  • Sophie gave me her copy of The Originals, it looks pretty cool! And very nice haul, I only got one book this week

  • I love the look of The Originals because I was a huge fan of Forgotten and Revived.
    Kite Spirit is another book that I’ll be adding to my wishlist. Happy reading, Raimy! 🙂

  • THE ORIGNIALS! I love Cat Patrick so I’m dying to read that one. Artichoke Hearts and Jasmine Skies are gorgeous books so I’m sure that you’ll love Kite Spirit. Happy reading 🙂

    Here’s my haul: http://bookhi.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/showcase-sunday-26.html

  • What a brilliant week for you! I hope you enjoy everything.

  • A fab book week – and I would recommend the Wimpy Vampire series – it’s so much fun (and the drawings are adorable!)
