Letterbox Love (4)

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.

Like every week, I thought I was going to have a really bad haul this week but I ended up ordering a few books and also went to the library so I ended up with lots of brilliant books in my hands.


Infinite Sky by C.J. Flood- I’d like to send a massive thank you to Sophie from So Many Books, So Little Time for sending me this. I was so excited when I received it and so started to jump around my living room like the mad thing I am. Thank you once again, Sophie!


The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin- I’ve been wanting to read this since it was released in the US back in October but it has only been released in the UK for a month so I haven’t been able to get my hands on it for a while but I’m looking forward to finally starting it.
Pantomime by Laura Lam- I’ve heard really good things about this book and can’t wait to start it because it sounds really interesting.
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi- I’m not stupid; I know that Shatter Me has been HUGE in the US. I’ve decided to finally buy it because I am an incredibly nosy person and must find out what everybody is raving about.
Borrowed from Library:

Numbers: The Chaos by Rachel Ward- I read Numbers, the first in the trilogy, a week or two ago and really enjoyed it so was really pleased when I managed to pick this one up.
Wonder by R.J. Palacio- I’ve seen this book around quite a lot lately and was going to pick it up the other week but never did so I’m glad that I did yesterday. 
What did you receive this week? Don’t forget to link back to your own posts and I’ll try and leave a comment. 
If you’re a new reader, follow and leave a link to your blog and I’ll follow back.
Happy reading!

    Wow, fantastic haul, Lucy! Infinite Sky sounds really good, and I love the cover for it. You’re right about Shatter Me, the hype for it has been massive! I really need to get started on that series sometime soon to see what everyone is talking about. Wonder sounds like a real heart-wrencher! But I hear it’s very well written.

    I hope you enjoy all of your new books, Lucy. I can’t wait to read your thoughts on them! 🙂

    Ah, Wonder! I loved that book. The style is very good, with the switching narratives and stuff. Infinite sky and Shatter Me look fantastic- I’ll have to look out for those!

    Brilliant books, Lucy! I am dying to read Infinite Sky and Mara Dyer, I have heard so many good things about them! I also need to read the Shatter Me series too – so many books so little time 😛
    Wonder is such a beautiful book, I have re-read it several times. It is the kind of book which hooks you and never lets go. It got me out of a reading slump too which is definitely good!
    Happy reading 🙂
