Letterbox Love (#82)

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.
Awesome books the past couple of weeks! Can’t wait to dig in!

These three books came from HarperCollins, thanks guys, and look great. The second in the School for Good and Evil series has been on my read list since I read the first so I need to read that one soon. The Giver sounds like my kinda thing and I alway like to read books before seeing their adaptations so I am excited to give it a go. As for Maybe One Day something in the blurb really stood out to me, I think its because it sounds like its a story of true friendship, without the romance you usually find in its kind of book.

This was a surprise on my doorstep yesterday from Oxford University Press. I hadn’t heard of it and to be honest reading the blurb it sounds like something I would have loved at 9 but not something I’d read now unfortunately. I may try and get someone to review it for me but if not I will find it a good home.

The wonderful folk at Electric Monkey have kindly sent me the latest Laura Jarrett so I can get a fix of her awesome work. This one sounds just as good as the last and I cannot wait to give it a read. I believe the main character is mute and its something to do with her brother, I will definitely be finding out more about Louder than Words as soon as I can! Thanks EM!

I have always been fascinated by Audrey Hepburn despite having never seen one of her movies. Its something I have to work on and soon, but when I read the blurb of this book I knew I needed to read it. It sounds great and I’m very intrigued by it. Thanks to Amulet for sending it over!

I saw Jeff do a talk about this in January and it sounds brilliant and hilarious. Its about a kid with OCD who finds himself zombified and wants to know whats happened to him, whilst also being disgusted with himself. Should definitely be a laugh.

Since reading Frost Hollow Hall I knew I would have to keep an eye on Emma Carroll and her fiction. This is her second book and is set in a Victorian circus… a time period and setting that I couldn’t love more!

This was mentioned at Faber and Faber’s book blogger event in January and I loved the sound of it… a teen year old who gets a mysterious package on his birthday that reveals a secret about magic librarians and his family’s involvement… I can’t wait to find out what that secret is! 
Thanks Faber and Faber for the above three books!  



  • I’m so looking forward to The Giver and Louder Than Words. I’ve heard so many wonderful things about The Giver and I love Laura Jarratt’s books. Happy reading!

  • Memoirs of a Zombie is so funny. I’m really excited for the other Faber books and the new Laura Jarratt. Oh yeah Audrey looks really intriguing, cant wait to see what you think!
