Letterbox Love (#95)

Letterbox-Love

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.

Letterbox-02-11-14 This is an entire month of books, not just this week! I have been a bit slow in putting a letterbox love post up but I have been keeping the books to one side so I could share them with you all!

For Review: 

The Art of Asking – Amanda Palmer (Unsolicited) 

This turned up at my work (I’m still investigating that one!) and I seriously was not expecting it at all, but I am so happy it did as it was on my list of things to ask for for Christmas anyway! I love Amanda Palmer as many long time readers of my blog will know so I am definitely looking forward to reading this soon! Thank you so much Piatkus for sending this!

Cold Spell – Jackson Pearce 

This is from Hatchette, thanks guys, and I really can’t wait to read it. I adore Jackson Pearce’s fairytale retellings so I am hoping to get to it soon, I’m kinda sad I didn’t have it in time for a Halloween read (It arrive on actual Halloween) but It’ll do nicely in winter I’m sure!

The Art of Being Normal – Lisa Williamson 

If you follow me on twitter you may have noticed I changed my avatar to be part of the flashmob for the cover reveal of this book because I love its cover! I also love the sound of it and with comparisons being made to David Levithan I’m sure it will be brilliant. Thanks DFB for this book!

Opal Plumstead – Jacqueline Wilson (Unsolicited) 

I got the manuscript for this through in September but I haven’t read it yet unfortunately. The lovely people at Random House sent through a finished copy too and I am definitely going to read it soon! Thanks guys!

Captive – AJ Grainger (Unsolicited) 

I actually squealed when I opened this envelope. To my knowledge I am not on the S&S list so I wasn’t expecting Captive but I wanted it as I know Annalie from her role at Walker Books and it sounds amazing. I am so grateful to whoever sent me this over from S&S and will be reading very soon!

Shiver The Whole Night Through – Darragh McManus

This creepy looking and sounding book made its way through to me from Hot Key, thanks guys! It sounds intriguing and scary and I love to read horrors just to see if they can actually scare me! We shall see!

The Secret Gift – Ian Somers (Unsolicited) 

Unfortunately I hadn’t heard of this before it arrived and I don’t think its one thats really for me. It is also the third in a series which I haven’t read so I’m not convinced I will get round to it any time soon… I may have to find a new home for this one.

Winters Bullet – William Osborne 

Another William Osborne war story which sounds amazing. I loved Hitler’s Angel and I hope this one is just as awesome as that was. Thanks Chicken House for sending this over!

Frozen Charlotte – Alex Bell 

This sounds creepy and just look at that cover! I love horror books and when I heard Stripes were creating a horror imprint I knew I needed to give it a go. This sounded like the best on their list so I requested it and I can’t wait to curl up on a cold winters night reading it! Thanks Stripes!

Circus of the Unseen – Joanne Owen 

Another creepy book with an awesome cover! This is set in a Russian Circus I believe which is something I have never read about before. It looks as creepy as it sounds and I really couldn’t stop myself from asking for it for review. It’s taken a lot of willpower not to rip it open and start reading since it arrived yesterday afternoon but I have another book that needs finishing first! Thanks Hot Key for this one too!

Borrowed: 

Beastly – Alex Flinn 

Summer in February – Jonathan Smith 

Why We Took The Car – Wolfgang Herrndorf 

These have been borrowed from my Sister who dropped them off when she came to visit. I was with her when Katie from Storytellers Inc convinced her to buy Why We Took The Car which is a German book which ha been translated and sounds really good. It apparently wasn’t what Kel expected so I am looking forward to seeing if its what I expect. Summer in February is an adult book but apparently one which I will love and as I trust her opinion I’m willing to give it a go, and as for Beastly, well I’m still not convinced as its had a lot of hype but we shall see if I enjoy it!
