Letterbox Love (#81)

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.

Two weeks worth of fantastic books, even Tony the T-rex is excited! 

For Review: 


I’m not going to lie, I have no idea what this one is about but with a title like that, comparisons to Annabel Pitcher and Siobhan Dowd and fantastic things said about this authors first book, I want to read it on hype alone. I believe its a bit of a crossover book and accessible to almost all ages and I think it involved some sort of detective work from the main characters. I can’t wait to find out, thanks Orion for giving me the chance to!

Quirk, the wonderful lovely US publishers of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, got in tough last month about a possible review of the second book in the series, Hollow City. Of course having LOVED the last one, despite its peculiar-ness, I just had to say yes. This I believe picks up were the first left off, with Jacob and his friends from the Island he found heading off to London in the hope they can find a cure for Miss Peregrine.

I am so lucky to have got an email from Electric Monkey asking if I wanted to review Catherine Bruton’s new novel I Predict a Riot, and I got luckier still when I said yes and mentioned that I loved her first novel, We Can Be Heroes, that I was asked if I wanted Pop, her second novel too! These both sound fantastic and I can’t wait to get round to them. Catherines such a brilliant writer and if these are anything like We Can Be Heroes they will grip me. The topics she choses to write about get me thinking about different views in society and how the same things can change different peoples lives for better or worse. Thanks so much for these Electric Monkey!

I Predict a Riot published: 5th June 


Another second novel from an author whom I have a high regard for. Nigel McDowell’s first book was brilliant and really inspired me to delve more into the type of fantasy I something tend to shy away from. When I found out he had a new novel coming out I knew I would have to give it a go too. This is another fantasy and its blurb sounds fantastic. One twin goes on a journey to save the other and try and defeat an evil which is taking over her entire island. Another must for fantasy lovers I’d say! Thanks to Hot Key for providing me with a copy of this!

The lovely, lovely Jame Dawson. I don’t think I need to say anything else about this book… its a horror, I believe its loosely based around the story of the Bloody Mary legend and its by James Dawson, that in itself makes you want to read it right? Thanks Hot Key for letting me read it!

Kody Keplinger never ceases to entertain me and this is yet another contemporary from her that I believe I will love. Its another Hamilton High book and what I love about that collection is that you can read them in any order. Published originally a few years ago Hodder have republished with a now cover and the Hamilton High branding and I love the colours on this cover and that they at least kept the same image from last time! I can’t wait to give this one a read and get another Kody fix after finishing A Midsummer’s Nightmare a few weeks ago! Thanks Hodder!

The second in Ruth Warburton’s new series, Witch Finder, based in London in 1880. I love historical fiction and Ruth’s witch centric books are brilliant. Can’t wait to find out what happens next in this series! I’m quoted in this too which makes me very giddy! Thanks again Hodder!

This one came through form Bloomsbury and to be honest I didn’t know anything about it until it arrived. It sounds good, about a society that is set in its ways and the general’s daughter throwing those ways out of the equation, but I’m not sure when I’ll get round to it. Thanks though Bloomsbury!

I’m not sure to dip in now or hold off until my preorder comes but with a re-read of the first two Grisha Trilogy books on the cards this week I may not be able to contain myself! Thanks Indigo!
