Book Haul

Letterbox Love (1)

Letterbox Love is a UK based feature where book bloggers showcase the books that they received that week, be they eBooks, paperbacks, hardbacks or any other format. It is hosted by Lynsey from Narratively Speaking.

At the start of the week, I was really worried that I wouldn’t have anything to share this week, but I was so very wrong! Previously I’ve done Stacking the Shelves but I’m going to be concentrating more on UKYA (more on this next week!) now and would like to connect with more UK bloggers.

Library Haul:

I have a massive library haul this week. On visiting my library on Saturday and finally meeting my teen librarian, I got lots of recommendations. Let me just add that my library is awesome.

You Against Me by Jenny Downham- Jenny Downham is an author that I haven’t read yet but I really want to and this was one of the books recommended to me.

Wither by Lauren DeStefano- With the release of Sever, I knew that I would have to start this series soon. I’m really looking forward to reading this as I’ve heard such great things about it.

Changeling by Philippa Gregory- I love historical fiction so much and Philippa Gregory is an author that I’ve been meaning to read for ages. I’ve heard mixed reviews for Changeling so I’m looking forward to making my own judgement.

Entangled by Cat Clarke- I read Undone last week and knew that I had to read her other two books. The cover is gorgeous!

Nobody’s Girl by Sarra Manning- I read Adorkable back in January and loved it and this was also one of the books that I had recommended. It looks so good!

Torn by Cat Clarke- Another Cat Clarke book! I’m so spoiled this week!

Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson- I really enjoyed From What I Remember by Stacy Kramer and Valerie Thomas which was (sort of) a road trip book so I’m looking forward to reading this one. It was recommended to me and it looks like a really cute read.

When I Was Joe by Keren David- I’ve wanted to read something by Keren David for a while and it just so happens that this is the book for a new book club I’m going to attend in a few weeks. The cover is really nice!


A Shade of Vampire by Bella Forrest- I won this in Jessica’s blogoversary giveaway and have been excitedly waiting its arrival. And it’s signed!


Rockoholic by C.J. Skuse- I was lucky enough to go to an event where three authors (Lucy Christopher, C.J. Skuse and Rachel Ward) were talking and so I bought this there. And I got it signed! The cover is so, so pretty. I can’t wait to start it.

Numbers by Rachel Ward- I also bought this at the event and also got it signed. I can’t wait to start it as it looks like an amazing read.

(I’ll be writing a write-up of the event next week and it will be posted on Wednesday).

Those were the books I got this week! What did you get in your letterbox? Link back to your own posts and I’ll check them out.

I’m also looking for new UK book blogs to follow so I’d love it if you could link back to your own blogs and I’ll check them out. Thank you!

    You have a teen librarian? I’m so jealous! 😛 You have some great books there, too – your library is awesome.
    Entangled is absolutely amazing, after finishing that book I was speechless. Read it asap! When I Was Joe is brilliant too. It was my first thriller read and definitely my favourite.
    Happy reading, Lucy! 🙂

    In my opinion, Entangled is even better than Undone! Enjoy all your books 🙂

    EEP! Great books! 😀 I’ve read Nobody’s Girl and I utterly loved it! I loved how it was based in France/Paris, as I’ve always wanted to go there! I have Entangled on my kindle that I must read soon..

    We should do a read-a-long together with Wither! 😀

    Enjoy your new books!

    I’ve read Wither which is so good! I need to get on with reading Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour (which was a birthday present a YEAR AGO). I wasn’t sure how I felt about You Against Me, I just don’t think it was my cup of tea. Lovely haul Lucy 🙂

    Great library haul! I <3 my local library. I really liked Entangled by Cat Clarke but I haven't read any of her other books yet. I know my library has Torn so that might have to be next on my list :D I'd love to know your thoughts on You Against Me :) I've read Before I Die by that author and liked it so I'd definitely be interested in reading more by her.

    So you totally hit the jackpot at your library! A teen librarian sounds so cool! I read Wither in December and really enjoyed it, Nobody’s Girl and Entangled are both some of my favourite UKYA books ever. And Amy & Roger <3 <3 Enjoy!
