Letterbox Love (#9)

Hey! Welcome to Letterbox Love, this is a UK meme, hosted by the lovely Lynsey at Narratively Speaking and inspired by The Story Sirens In My Mailbox, where we highlight the books we got in the post and beyond!!


This very small pile is actually two weeks worth of books! I’m so impressed! 
For Review: 
Why We Broke Up – Daniel Handler 
Torn – David Massey

I’m really excited by these two, I fancied giving torn a go since I read about it in Chicken Houses’ catalogue and it turned up in some seriously awesome packaging looking like it was straight out of the war! 
However, saying that, I am even more excited about Why We Broke Up! I’ve wanted this for ages ever since a US blogger was raving about it on her blog (Call me Crazy Book Reviews) and I was ecstatic when I found out it was being published over here in August. I was even happier when I got home from holiday to find a copy waiting for met! Thank you Electric Monkey! 
Won: 
The Night Circus – Erom Morgenstern

The wonderful and lovely Viv over at Serendipity Reviews hosted a giveaway for this one and as I’d heard so many good things about it I already wanted a copy, so I entered… luckily for me I won and my copy turned up in a little goodie bag containing humbug sweets (I think!) balloons, the book, a recipe card for Red Velvet Cupcakes and a reading guide to the book! Can’t wait to read this one, or to try out that recipe! Thanks Viv and Vintage Pub for sending me the goodie bag!

So thats all from me! I hope you’ve had a good week and I’m looking forward to seeing what books you’ve got yourselves!
