Letterbox Love (2)

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.

I don’t have a massive haul this week because I didn’t buy anything but I’m really pleased with the books I received and I’m also hoping that next week will be a better week because I’m expecting quite a few books. 

Library Haul:

I went to the library yesterday to return a few books and managed to pick these two up. I was hoping to get more but it wasn’t one of my best library hauls because I’m very fussy when it comes to picking up books.

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver- I liked Delirium, although it wasn’t one of my favourite books, and, with the release of Requiem, knew that I would have to finish the series off. Pandemonium is the second book in the trilogy and I’m really looking forward to reading it.
Just Listen by Sarah Dessen- I finished The Truth About Forever yesterday and loved it so knew that I would have to read something else by the author. This one sounds really good!

E-book Haul:

I don’t usually post the e-books that I buy/receive but I had to include this one because I was so happy about it.

The Prince by Kiera Cass- EEEP! I loved The Selection and it is one of my favourite novels so I just had to buy this as soon as it was released. I’ve already read it and was super pleased to see that it included the first two chapters of The Elite. And now I really can’t wait until April!

Bookshop Haul:

I was honoured to receive an invite to Marie-Louise Jensen’s book launch for Smuggler’s Kiss and got a few of my books signed, as well as buying one that I haven’t already read.

Between Two Seas by Marie-Louise Jensen- This is one of Marie-Louise’s books that I haven’t yet read and I’m really looking forward to starting it.
And here is my signed copy of Smuggler’s Kiss…

What did you receive this week? Link back to your own book hauls and I’ll be sure to check them out!

    Great books! I have Pandemonium on my TBR pile and so I must read it soon. Especially with Requiem coming out. I love Sarah Dessen! I have had Just Listen on my wishlist for ages 🙂
    Wow, a signed copy of A Smuggler’s Kiss? Lucky! I really want to read that book.
    Happy reading, Lucy!

    I’m reading Pandemonium at the moment, it’s good – better than Delirium from what I can remember.
    You know how I feel about Sarah Dessen, Just Listen is one of her best. Glad you liked The Truth About Forever!

    I really love Sarah Dessen, The Truth about Forever was the first book of hers that I read also and I completely fell in love. I hope you like Just Listen

    AHH. Everytime someone hauls a Delirium book, it just reminds me that I still have to read book one. D: And I love Sarah Dessen, but I still haven’t read Just Listen. 😛 I hope you enjoy it! Happy reading and thanks for stopping by A Reading Daydreamer!
