As always, Letterbox Love is a weekly feature that I'm hosting on the blog 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. Letterbox Love is intended to showcase upcoming books and build up some excitement for them as well as let you know what is available out there. It is not about competing with other bloggers or boasting of any kind (c'mon, we're British and we don't do drama!) You may notice that I didn't take any photographs this week and that's simply because it's a lot of effort, only to have one book in the photo so I grabbed an image instead.
Crewel by Gennifer Albin
I already had a digital version of this from Netgalley but I just couldn't read it like that as the formatting was all messed up so thankfully, Faber & Faber sent me a paperback copy and I'm reading this next!
Through to You by Emily Hainsworth
I'd actually forgotten that I'd pre-ordered this ages ago and so it was a nice surprise to receive it, especially as the UK version isn't out yet. I think this book sounds FASCINATING and I can't wait to read it.
The Dating Deal by Melanie Marks (Bought)
You may or may not though this but I've read and reviewed some of Melanie Marks books before and during that time, I came to realise that she does romance VERY WELL which is why I got this book.
After Adam by Katie Aleo (Bought)
This is a short novella at 27,000 words (the average YA novel is above 60,000 words) and so I know it will take me no time at all to read this. It's had some good reviews and for 77p, it's not a big deal if I don't like it however I think it sounds interesting.
Reading Like a Writer by Francine Prose (Bought)
I bought this on the recommendation of a friend (thanks Liz) as I like the idea of reading like a writer (which I think I do anyway) but it sounded like a good read.
The Providence Trilogy (Providence, Requiem and Eden) by Jamie McGuire (Bought)
So, recently I read Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire and became OBSESSED with Travis. This book has ruined me, RUINED ME I tell you for other books and I knew I had to do something, so I ordered the rest of her books to keep me ticking over until Walking Disaster is released.
Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan (Bought)
I actually read this last Christmas although I never reviewed it at the time so I might just re-read this year as I loved the story and it comes highly recommended.
Screenwriting Tricks for Authors (and screenwriters!) by Alexandra Sokoloff (Free)
I'm thinking this might be my next writing book to read as I've seen nothing but five star reviews for it and SCORE, it was free when I got it.
So, I hope this post proves to you that I don't ALWAYS have an epic week with how many books get delivered through my door (whether they're for review or I've bought them) but for me, it's always going to be quality over quantity anyway ;) I hope you all had a great week for books and as always, please leave me your links :)
