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.
This weeks letterbox is split into two as I forgot to post last weeks even though I took the picture!
If, like me, you were forced to read Skelig in school you will know who David Almond is. Now I loved Skelig especially when I reread it a few years ago since no longer being forced to read it and I was very excited when I heard David Almond has a new book coming out. A Song for Ella Grey is told from the point of view of Ellas friend following the friendship beginning to break down due to Ella finding love, and then Ella dying. It sounds sad but should be a good read as I believe the characters speak with a North East accent which is where I am from and I love being able to read books with my original accent! Thank you so much Hodder Children’s Books

This is an adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book into graphic novel format and I can’t wait to read it. I loved the novel and I love reading graphic novels but I don’t know how well it will adapt, here’s to finding out! Thanks Bloomsbury for sending it over!

Shipwrecked – Siobhan Curham (unsolicited)
Dark of the Moon – Siobhan Curham (unsolicited)
I loved Shipwrecked but unfortunately for some reason my review never made it on to the blog.. I don’t know how or why! But last week the wonderful people at Electric Monkey surprised me with a copy of both of these books! The second in the series publishing gives me a perfect excuse to re-read Shipwrecked and get a review for both up on the blog! Thanks EM!

Thanks to my boyfriends mum for giving me pennies for my birthday for these two books!
Finally my books in The Grisha Trilogy will match! I had the ‘Gathering Dark’ proof of this so I needed a proper matching set and when Indigo said they were publishing the pretty purple cover for this book I knew it was a great excuse to buy it!
