Letterbox Love (#68)

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.

For Review:


I have heard amazing things about Jo Cotterill since I started blogging and I wanted to know what the author was all about, so when an email came through asking me if I wanted to review her newest boo, Looking at the Stars, I said yes straight away. I think this is a little younger than I usually go for but the blurb on goodreads captured me and I am hoping I enjoy it. Jo will be stopping by the blog on February 3rd and my review will be up around then too. Thanks Random House/Bodley Head for this!

This is the second book in the Stray series and I have to say I am looking forward to it. I really enjoyed Stray and I desperately want to know what happens next even though the world these books are set in are mind-blowingly weird. Let’s hope Burn is as good as Stray was, but I have no doubt it will be! Thanks Hot Key Books

Another sequel, this time an odd contemporary series in which the main character dies for a while and then comes back. At least, that was what Fracture was on about,  I think the series has turned a bit paranormal on us though and I am intrigued as to what is going on. Thanks Bloomsbury for letting me satisfy my curiosity with this one!

And yet another sequel, but this is the third in the Tempest series rather than the second… and unfortunately I have no idea what its about because the second is still on my TBR pile. I didn’t think I requested this when the long list of titles dropped into my inbox from Macmillan but at least it will push me to read Vortex some time soon! I did enjoy Tempest back in 2012 when I read it though!

This is a younger YA book about love and family, with a bit of angst thrown in I think. I wouldn’t usually request something like this but I wanted to read the authors April-May series last year as I heard good things…. but I didn’t get round to it. I thought I’d give this one a try and see how I fair with the author then I’ll check out the April-May books possibly. Thanks Hot Key for sending this one too!

Bought: 


I heard amazing things about this back when it came out and obviously I know the author has a great reputation for his radio shows so I wanted to read it then, but like so many book promptly forgot about it and read my ever growing tar pile instead. This week when walking through my local Sainsbury’s I couldn’t help but notice the price of their paperbacks were well within my low budget for book buying and I grabbed a copy quick. Hopefully I’ll get round to it soon!
