Letterbox Love (#5)

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


For Review:


Dark Inside – Jeyn Roberts 
What’s up With Jody Barton? – Hayley Long 
The Masque of The Red Death – Bethany Griffin 
Soul Beach – Kate Harrison
Soul Fire – Kate Harrison

I got so many review books this week that I had forgotten would even be on their way! I LOVE Hayley Longs Lottie Biggs series so I’m really excited to read this new book of hers and The Masque of the Red Death? EEEE, what more could I want than a new YA story inspired by Edgar Allen Poe!! I have to say thank you to both Macmillan and Indigo for these, you guys are amazing!

Bought:

Stitch Head – Guy Bass 

I was out yesterday and on the way home I saw a sign for Kirkham, this won’t mean much to any of you but basically last year I went to an event in Preston where Jennifer Donnelly did a talk and signed books.

That event was hosted by Silverdell Books in Kirkham but I’d never had chance to get to the bookshop/cafe (they have homemade ice creams which Emma from Bloomsbury insisted that I had to go and try!) So I did a quick turn off and visited the shop, its quite small but they are independent so its always good to buy for independent bookstores and when I saw that they had Stitch Head I knew I had to buy it. I’d seen a review of it on Wondrous Reads’ blog last year and it sounds so good!

So yeah, if you’re ever in Lancashire, near Preston or Lytham St Annes/Blackpool I recommend a quick jaunt up to Silverdell Books in Kirkham!

So thats my mailbox this week! I hope you’re all enjoying the lovely whether and got some fab books!
