Letterbox Love (11)

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.

This vlog took me about 20,000 attempts to film; I just couldn’t get it right! This is my haul for the past two weeks as I was too busy reading last week to write one! Sorry that it’s such a long video!

I think this will be my last vlog for a while. After struggling to film this one, I’m going to take a break and picture my books for the next few weeks.

What did you get this week? Link back to your own posts and I’ll be sure to check them out!Β

    I love your Vlogs. I know how you feel because whenever I film something it takes like infinite (maybe a slight exaggeration) attempts. Where to begin on your massive hall…. I finished The Originals yesterday and it was a great novel. I rated it 4.5 because it was quite close to perfection. I love your cover for Vampire Academy btw, I’ve never seen that version before. I love TFIOS, I haven’t the same cover as you. I didn’t know there was three. Happy Reading πŸ˜€

    I’ve had Insatiable on my bookshelf for ages – let me know when you’re gonna read it, and we can read it together πŸ˜€ Also, I believe the Morganville series is still 2 for a fiver in The Works, if that helps save some money

    I think vlogs are really good for book hauls so dont be disheartened! I love how you have a mix of new and old books. I haven’t read Vampire Academy either, and I read The Hit last week so may have to check out Junk too πŸ™‚
    I’m really looking forward to Acid. Haven’t heard much about the Originals, so will look out for your review πŸ™‚

    Midwinter Blood has a lovely cover! I’m not sure yet if it would be for me, but it has had quite a few good reviews, so I guess I am a little bit curious about it. Acid made it into my haul a couple of weeks ago but I haven’t had a chance to read it yet. Enjoy! πŸ™‚

    LUCY, HI!!!!!! *waves a little too enthusiastically* This is your THIRD vlog already? Aahhh, I’ve missed so much! I’m so glad you’ve decided to take the plunge and do a vlog – I am really not brave enough… maybe one day πŸ˜€

    Etiquette and Espionage! I remember wanting to request this before exams but I knew I wouldn’t have time to read it so I hope you enjoy it! And The Night Circus sounds so good too! I still haven’t read the HP books yet, I didn’t really enjoy them a few years ago, maybe now would be a good time to give them another go..

    And I love your enthusiasm for TFIOS!!! I will read it soon, I promise!!! And so jealous of your copy of Paper Aeroplanes, it seems like a really emotional read!

    Enjoy all your fabby books, Lucy and I look forward to your UKYA week!

    Oh wow, so many awesome books – I want them all! I’ve read Insatiable and it was a fantastic book! I really enjoyed it and I gave it a 4/5 stars – I NEED to sequel soon. πŸ™‚ I REALLY want to get my hands on ACID, i’ve heard so many great things about it. The Morganville Vampires series is completely awesome, I’ve read the first 12 books. πŸ˜€ I’ve read one book by Cat Patrick, and I loved it – I really want to read her other books as well as The Originals – it looks great. I hope you enjoy all your books and thanks for sharing! Your vlogging is getting better – more confident. ^.^
    Happy Reading! πŸ˜€

    I actually haven’t read the Vampire Academy series! Also, I love your accent! It’s interesting because when I interact with bloggers that I know in my head aren’t in the US, I don’t really comprehend that they’ll have accents. I love it!

    Thanks for sharing and happy reading with all those books!

    Finally got my computer up at the new house and the internet!

    Awesome haul!

    I have Etiquette and Espionage to read it looks really good and I love spy books! Insatiable looks like an interesting read and Meg Cabot it one of my favourite authors! πŸ˜€

    I absolutely loved I Am Number Four, the second one, The Power of Six wasn’t as good but I still really liked it! So I hope you enjoy IANF! πŸ˜€

    Diary of a Crush looks really good! I read Sara Manning’s book, Nobody’s Girl and loved it, so I want to read her other books too! πŸ™‚
