Letterbox Love (#73)

Letterbox Love is a weekly feature that is hosted by Lynsey at Narratively Speaking and 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: 

New Kody Keplinger! WOOO! I loved The Duff and this is bound to be just as good. Its about a girl whose Dad seems to have forgotten she exists and has built up a new life without her, with a new girlfriend who happens to have a son around the same age as her – and who she happens to have made out with a few weeks prior to the main events of the book! Oops! I am looking forward to this for sure!

A book about bullying, its after effects and what happens when the suicide victim may not have been as completely innocent as everyone is making out. This should be an interesting one, especially as it is sure to broach the topic of cyber bullying which is something I am interested in seeing approached in modern YA.

I have heard good things about Patricia Elliott’s other books but this will be my first venture into reading her work for myself. I believe it is historical fiction with perhaps a touch of magic but either way by the description on Goodreads (link above) and on the back of the book it sounds awesome.

A new Jackson Pearce book, just what I wanted, I was starting to have withdrawals. I have adored Jackson Pearce’s Fairytale retellings stories but I haven’t read much of her other stuff so I am intrigued to see how I feel towards this one. I will probably love it regardless of genre because the authors is a brilliant writer but we shall see…

Yay! The follow on from Dead Jealous, I really hope I love this as much as I loved Sharon’s first book, and I am quoted in this too, double bonus!

Siege by Sarah Mussi got me thinking and was an incredible story, Riot will probably do the same even though I have no idea what its about, I just vowed I would read anything by Sarah Mussi after her first book!

All of the above books were sent over by Hatchette/Hodder Children’s books, thank you guys! 


Newish indie publishers, Bamboccioni books, got in touch with me about this one and I couldn’t say no… ofr one I love to support indie pubs as and when I can, and two; this book sounds brilliant! It caught my attention because its a love story between two teens who have mental illnesses. I don’t think I have seen anything like it before on the YA scene and am interested to see how it comes across through this authors style. Thank you again Bamboccioni Books!

I have heard nothing but good things about this book and when it was offered to me for review by Lovereading4kids.co.uk I had to jump at the chance. It is being compared to books from Jodi Piccoult and John Green and I can see that it will possibly be a tearjerker but it will tackle some harsh topics… and I love books that do that. Thanks LoveReading and Simon & Schuster!

  • Fabulous haul! I would really recommend Tease. And I’m looking forward to Purity too. Intrigued by Swings and Roundabouts; its the first I’ve heard of it so will be interested in your thoughts of it.

  • I been seeing Tease on a lot of blogs. It looks like you got a very nice selection of books this week. Come check out my stack as well.
