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.
The latest book from the incredible Sally Gardner has one of the coolest covers I have ever seen and I can’t wait to read it. I honestly would read anything this author wrote but thank you to Hot Key for sending this book out!

This is a Chicken House book and to be honest all their books generally are awesome. Its a love story which puts me off slightly but something about the blurb really struck me so I decided I would give it a go, thanks for sending Chicken House!

This intrigued me because of the idea of a goddess hidden in the body of a girl and the situation of the girl. I want to know more about her just from the blurb and how she came to be where she is. It sounds like it will be quite a sad story at least at the beginning but hopefully good will come of it! Thanks Scholastic and Lovereading4kids.co.uk for sending this through

This is a Stripse book from their new YA horror collection and sounds fantastic! I love YA horror and can’t wait to read both this and the other book I have got from this collection, Frozen Charlotte. Its awesome that a publisher is pushing YA Horror in a way that hasn’t really been tempted since the days of Point Horror I don’t think.

This week I visited my favourite indie bookstore for their late night Christmas Shopping event. While there I just bought christmas presents so I can’t really show them off but I also got a few proofs from Katie who owns the store with her mum. I want to say a massive thank you for always making me feel welcomed at the store to both of them and thank you for passing these proofs on to me!
I love Scott Westerfield but his books always take me forever to read and I doubt Afterworlds is going to be any different! As far as I can tell form the blurb its a book within a book, and that whole concept sounds incredible to me!

This is a book that I have heard loads of people talking about and I am not sure about, but I am more than willing to give a go. Solitaire’s blurb doesn’t give much away and I’m told that the protagonist is quite angsty but I am looking forward to giving it a read and seeing what I think of it for myself.

This isn’t in the picture because I am currently reading it. I couldn’t not start reading it straight away! From the creators of Oliver and the Seawigs this book is about cakes that take over a spaceship. I’m about a third of the way through and already its just as brilliant as Oliver and the Seawigs was, I wish I had Reeve and McIntyre’s imagination!
