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.
Such a fantastic book haul this week, thank you to all the publishers who sent books for review, it’s very much appreciated!
This was sent by the amazing Hannah at Walker Children’s Books. I raved about this one on twitter and she knew how much I oved dinosaurs so sent over a copy. I have already read it and it was awesome, review to come later in the week!
This was sent by the awesome folks at HarperCollins and sounds just incredible, its a fantasy which has been compared to CS Lewis and Philip Pullam, so it has a huge reputation to live up to!
The Wimpy Vampire Strikes Back – Tim Collins
This was an unsolicited review copy sent from Michael O’Mara books. It’s the third in the Wimpy Vampire series, which is a series I am interested in but haven’t read or got… so I’m not sure if I will be reading this one, if I don’t I will donate it to a school or public library.
Another unsolicited review copy sent through from Quercus… I’m not sure what this one is about and as it is the second in a series I haven’t started, or own, I’m not sure if I will get to read it.
If I don’t I will make sure I get it sent to a good home.
I am part of the blog tour for The Originals and so the lovely people at Electric Monkey sent over a copy of the book for me. I am quoted in it too like I was in Revived! yay!
I had forgotten that I requested this one but the lovely folk at MacMillan kindly sent me over a copy so I could finally get round to reading some of Sita Brahmachari’s stuff.. I have had her other book, Artichoke Hearts on my wishlist forever but haven’t ever gotten round to getting hold of a copy. I am looking forward to Kite Spirit!
I found these beauties in town yesterday at a great price so couldn’t resist! I have all of them on my wishlist except The Dead of Winter which I actually have on my kindle but as I don’t like using my kindle I decided to buy it again as a hard copy.
