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.
Lots of wonerful books this week. The first lot came in a fantastic Where’s Wally tote bag (pictured below) from the Walker Books Manchester Roadshow which I attended:
Fangs: Operation: Golden Bum – Tommy Donbavand
This isn’t on goodreads yet but you can read a little about the series on Tommy Donbavand’s website. It sounds brilliant and is the first of a series of six books coming out in September and October this year from Walker
The Nightmare Club: Help! My Brother’s A Zombie – Annie Graves
Again I can’t find this on goodreads but it is from Little Island, which is an Irish indie publisher who work closely with Walker. It sounds and looks brilliant and I will definitely be reading it… probably very quickly as it is only around 50 pages long!
The Messengers – Edward Hogan
This is Edward Hogans second book, following on from Daylight Saving which I saw so may fantastic reviews for last year! It sounds a bit supernatural and I am very intrigued by its blurb. Thank you Walker for this! It isn’t on goodreads yet as its not out until September.
Blood Donors – Steve Tasane
This is a zombie book… what more do I need to say. It sounds creepy and awesome and is out in October from Walker.
This is my second proof of Wild Boy, I have read and reviewed it on the blog already and will probably give this one away at some point soon as I adored it!
Hello Darkness – Anthony McGowan
Again, not on goodreads but you can read a little about it on the Inkslingers website… I cant wait to read this one as it sounds crime-y and I love crime YA. This one comes out in September by Walker
This is an adult title from Constable & Robinson and doesn’t sound like my kinda thing at all.. I will be passing this on to my local library or giving it away.
The below came through the post from the publishers for review:
Guinea Pigs Online: Viking Victory – Jennifer Gray & Amanda Swift
This is an unsolicited review copy from Quercus. Thanks guys. Not my kinda thing but its only tiny so I’ll probably read and review it then pass it on.
This one was requested from HarperCollins and it sounds incredible… from what I gather from the blurb its a contemporary that hits a lot of serious topics and I really want to know more. Thank you HarperCollins for this!
I can only imagine this was sent out as a mistake as I received a proof of this last week too… I’m not sure what happened there but I will be either giving this extra copy away as part of a giveaway or if someone wants to offer a bit of the postage cost I can get it sent to them? Thanks anyway HarperCollins.
