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.
A Whisper of Wolves – Kris Humphrey (Unsolicited)
This arrived in a beautifully presented way, wrapped in tissue paper and sealed with twine, with a white feather enclosed within the package and a letter from the publisher, sealed with wax, explaining what the book is about. I love it when publisher do that, especially with books that you haven’t heard of because it made me excited for it. Its a middle grade book from Stripes and is the first in a series which sounds fantastic. Its not out until March 2015 so I might not get round to it very quickly but I will definitely be reading this one at some point. Thanks Stripes!

The Sky is Everywhere – Jandy Nelson (Unsolicited)
I have actually read this book already but in anticipation of Jandy Nelson’s second book, I’ll Give You The Sun, coming out Walker sent beautiful new copies out to bloggers. I loved The Sky is Everywhere so will never moan about having multiple copies especially when my other one is a hardback and now I have a paperback to go with it. Thanks Walker! My review of The Sky is Everywhere can be read here.
New cover edition published: February 2015
Atlantia – Ally Condie (Unsolicited)
I hadn’t heard of this one before it dropped through my letterbox and in all honesty I’m not convinced it sounds like my kind of thing. I wasn’t a massive fan of the Matched series, in fact I only managed to read one book in it, but I will try and give this one a chance but I’m not sure I’ll review it. Thanks to Penguin though for sending it over!

This sounds like a lot of fun and I will definitely be diving right in as soon as possible. I have had experience with Carrie Ryan’s Forest of Hands and Teeth and whilst I didn’t enjoy it, I do think that was more because I was trying to listen to it as an audiobook in the car. This is a middle grade book and completely different so we shall see what I think of it soon! Thanks Orion Children’s Books for sending this over!
