Letterbox Love (#62)

Letterbox Love is a weekly feature that is hosted by Lynsey at Narratively Speaking and basically, the idea came out of a discussion with other UK book bloggers about the need to do a weekly meme with more of a British feel to it. Therefore, Letterbox Love was born and the logo was lovingly designed by Dark Readers. Letterbox Love is a way for us to share the books that come through our letterbox, galleys and e-books (through our electronic letterbox) and any other bookish goodies that we want to tell you about.

Awesome two weeks for me, thanks to everyone who sent books! 
For Review: 




These books are published in America and sound amazing. One of the authors got in touch with me to review them and usually I would have said no but these were too interesting to leave behind. The series is called ‘The Twisted Lit Novels’ and they are retellings of Shakespeare’s plays and I can’t wait to read them. Thank you Amy & Kim!

This is the second in the Murder Notebooks series and I can’t wait to check it out. I liked the first one but it opened a lot of questions up that weren’t answered and I’m hoping they will be in this book! Thanks for this Bloomsbury!

Some of you may know the name of this author as he has been in movies and TV shows. When I first heard Mackenzie Crook had done a fantasy 9-12 series I just had to read them and thankfully for the publication of Benjamin Tooth Faber and Faber offered me both books for review. Thanks F&F!

This sounds really cool and is all tech-y so I am definitely interested in it, it sounds like a bit of a thriller with lots of mystery and I will be trying to get it read soon. Thanks Electric Monkey for this one!

A new Joss Stirling, and not part of the series she is so well known for!? To say I’m excited would be an understatement! I love the sound of this one and am very intrigued by it, thanks for sending OUP!

  • I’m enjoying Dead Ends too 🙂 – Erin Lange is SO good.

  • Ooh, I like the idea of Shakespeare retellings. I might understand the retellings a bit easier than the originals!

  • I picked up Twinmaker at WFC, hopefully I’ll get to it soon as I quite like a techie YA read now and then.

  • I was supposed to get a copy of Dead Ends but it didn’t arrive 🙁 Defintiely going to have to grab a copy when it’s published.

  • Amy

    Glad the books arrived! Enjoy, and thanks again!

  • Brilliant haul! Dead Ends is a book I’ve had on my to-read list for ages, but the cover is so different from the US I didn’t realise it was the same book. So excited its being released here 😀

  • Ooh! I didn’t know Joss Stirling has a new book *runs off to investigate*.

    And I can’t wait to start Dead Ends – it sounds brilliant!
