Letterbox Love (#78)

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.


Another two-weeker this time as I was away last weekend. And a good haul too! I am very excited to read some of these! 

For Review: 


This sounds like so much fun and a very interesting read. Its a memoir rather than a fiction book about Maya finding a 1950’s ‘Guide to teenage popularity’ and decides to follow its suggestions to see if the 50’s rules still apply. It should be interesting especially as Maya is a self-proclaimed geek and I am wondering if it really does work.

This arrived completely unexpectedly and I’m not really sure what its about but it looks fun, gunna give it a go and maybe then pass it on to my friends 8 year old son – looks like something he’ll enjoy! Thanks Simon & Schuster!

Thank you Curious Fox for this – a beautiful finished copy of the book Alex As Well. I have already read this and loved it, will definitely cherish my finished copy!

These came though from Penguin as part of the run up to a new series from these authors. Dangerous Creatures. I am looking forward to reading them as they are books 3 and 4 of a series I started and loved but never got round to finishing. I will be reading these very quickly!

Thanks MiraInk for this, it sounds great. A road trip with twist, I believe there is only one of the five main characters on a road trip and the others have all been impacted by this one girl along the way. It sounds brilliant and I cannot wait to give it a read!

I loved Emma’s first book and its fantastically developed main character and The Fearless gives off a similar vibe in that aspect – although a completely new book this sounds like a gritty, pebble dystopian with an enemy base provided by the most obvious enemy base I could think of – a very well known shopping centre! I can’t wait to read it and thanks so much to Random House for sending it over!

This sounds awesome. A teen fiction book with recipe ideas throughout and budding romance. It definitely sounds like fun and I can’t wait to read it and have a few laughs of my own! Thanks Stripes Publishing for this!

Borrowed:

I have been wanting to read these for a while and coming up with something special for the blog for a certain event coming soon I thought they would be the perfect examples of what I wanted. Thankfully my awesome manager smuggled her two year olds copies out of the house for me so I am going to read them quick and get them back before she notices! Thanks Vicky 🙂 


  • So excited that Lets Get Lost is being published here. Looks adorable! Also looking forward to The fearless. Love, Lies and Lemon Pies is really good, hope you enjoy.

  • Great haul. I love The Gruffalo and I could possibly recite this word for word even though I haven’t read it for a while (my kids in work were obsessed with this book).

    I keep meaning to read Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl books but I never get around to it.

    my haul

  • Popular and Let’s Get Lost are both brilliant. Enjoy!

    A great haul this week! I hope you enjoy your books! I haven’t heard of Love Lies and Lemon Pies but it sounds like a really cute and fun read.
