Welcome to Letterbox Love, this is a UK meme, hosted by the lovely Lynsey at Narratively Speaking and inspired by The Story Siren’s In My Mailbox. This post is a means by which to highlight the books we get in the post and beyond, and especially to bring attention to those books which may be sat on our shelves for a little while yet that we love all the same.
So last week I was in London and didn’t get round to doing a Letterbox Love, so this weeks post is about the books I got in the past two weeks. There were a lot. I got a fair few unsolicited review copies, a few which I did request and I bought a fair few books too… including a couple that aren’t in the above picture.
The books are as follows and links will take you to Goodreads so you can find out more! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you see something you like!
Thank you to David Fickling Books, Templar, Penguin, Walker, Headline, Strange Chemistry, MiraInk and Harper Voyager for these books. Also pictured is a catalogue from Electric Monkey about their upcoming titles and Hornsly, a gift sent from Michelle from Much Loved Books.
Most of these were unsolicited, however it does not make them unwanted. Thank you goes to Walker, Corgi, Quercus, MiraInk, Random House and Chicken House.
Bought & Gifted:
One Seriously Messed-up Week-end in the Otherwise Un-Messed-up Life of Jack Samsonite – Tom Clempson
In London I took it upon myself to introduce my sister to Foyles and Daunt books, I got most of these there however Linger was bought at a Maggie Stiefvater signing at Waterstones Deansgate in Manchester, as was Girl, Missing which the wonderful Caitlin from The Cait Files bought me as a gift.
I also visited the National History Museum in London and couldn’t resist Topsy the Triceratops!
