    Letterbox Love (#57)

    Letterbox Love is a weekly feature that is hosted by Lynsey at Narratively Speaking and basically, the idea came out of a discussion with other UK book bloggers about the need to do a weekly meme with more of a British feel to it. Therefore, Letterbox Love was born and the logo was lovingly designed by Dark Readers. Letterbox Love 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. For Review: Frost Hollow Hall – Emma Carroll  Creepy ghost stories are definitely my thing and I…

    ***Please Note that this is the third book in a series and may contain spoilers for the previous two*** “6A. Seriously?

It could be a coincidence but the way things have gone recently, I am not a big believer in coincidence. I wouldn’t be surprised if Marina sat down behind me in row seven, and Ella made her way back to row ten. But, no, the girls drop down beside me without saying a word, and join me in studying each person boarding the plane.…

    The Power of Six – Pittacus Lore

    “My name is Marina, as of the sea, but I wasn’t called that until much later. In the beginning I was known merely as Seven, one of the nine surviving Garde from the planet Lorien, the fate of which was, and still is, left in our hands.” Marina has been hiding in an orphanage in Spain for many years since landing on Earth.

    I Am Number Four – Pittacus Lore

    “The door starts shaking. It’s a flimsy thing made of bamboo shoots held together with tattered lengths of twine. The shake is subtle and stops almost immediately. They left their heads to listen, a fourteen year old boy and a fifty year old man, who everyone thinks is his father but who was born near a different jungle on a different planet hundreds of lightyears away.” When the Mogadorians attacked Lorien there was no hope for survival. Nine children of the Garde and their nine Cêpan were bundled onto a ship bound for Earth. The nine children were tagged with a number each, when the Mogadorians tried to track them…
