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.
This was sent to me for a bit of festive reading from Indigo as a gift. I have read only one Holly Black book before and I didn’t enjoy it unfortunately, however after reading and hearing so many good things about this book since its release I thought I would give it a go. Thanks guys at Indigo!
I adored New Girl and heard amazing things about Here Lies Bridget (even though my copy still lies on my tar pile!) so when I found out Paige Harbison has a new book coming out I just had to have it. Thankfully the guys at Mira sent a copy of for review, yay! The cover in the pic is the American one, published by Harlequin Teen but the UK Mira Ink one is different.
Queen of Dreams – Peter Hamilton x2 (Unsolicited)
This arrived on my doorstep last week and again this week. I am unsure as to why I got two but neither were asked for. However with a cover like that I will not be missing out on the book and definitely plan on reading it. Its about Fairies and I can find fairy books a bit hit or miss but hopefully I’ll enjoy it. The second copy will likely be given away as part of a giveaway next month to celebrate my blogoversary. Thanks Doubleday for sending this!
If any of you are long term readers of the blog you will remember me absolutely loving the first book in this series, even though I thought I wouldn’t. After reading The Paladin Prophecy I knew I would need the rest of the series cos I was dying to know what would happen. Thanks to Corgi for sending this to satisfy my curiosity!
This is the second in the Splintered series and whilst Splintered is sat on my tar I am planning on reading it very soon so Amulet kindly sent over a copy of the second book for review. I love the covers of these books and find this one particularly interesting, lets hope whats inside is as good eh?!
I got a big lollipop! But better than that, I got an awesome sounding book. Gretel and the Dark is partly set in 1899 in Vienna and in what I assume is one of the war periods in Germany and I think its a kind of twist on Hansel and Gretel, but I may be wrong. I was seduced into this by an intriguing name, a beautiful cover (click on the link to see it fully!) and the fact its UKYA. Thank you so much to Penguin books for this one!
