Book Haul

Letterbox Love (17)

Letterbox Love is a UK based feature where book bloggers showcase the books that they received that week, be they e-books, paperbacks, hardbacks or any other format. It is hosted by Lynsey from Narratively Speaking.
I wasn’t expecting to have a very big haul this week but it seems that whenever I say that the complete opposite happens.
To Review:
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas- It’s in my hands! It’s in my hands! Yay! Yay! Yay! I’m a huge fan of Throne of Glass and receiving this this week was just such a brilliant moment. Thank you, Bloomsbury!
The Killing Woods by Lucy Christopher- I had no idea I was getting this and I was so happy when I found it on my doorstep. I can’t wait to read it because I loved Stolen so much. Thank you, Chicken House!Library:

Level 2 by Lenore Applehans- This is a book that I’m going to be reading over the summer for my book club that is run by the library. I love my library so much because they’ve had loads of new books recently and so I’m on my limit at the moment. Must read fast!
The Quietness by Alison Rattle- I’ve been wanting to read this for a while now and am so pleased that this is another book club read. I may have to live in my library from now on…I’m a huge fan of historical fiction so this sounds right up my street.
Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood- Another book club read! This has been recommended to me a few times over the past couple of weeks so I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone is talking about.
The Bunker Diary by Kevin Brooks- I’ve heard really great things about this and so have decided to finally read it myself. It sounds really intriguing!
The Avery Shaw Experiment by Kelly Oram- I was in the mood for something a bit like this and so decided to buy this for my Kindle. I’m so pleased I did because I really enjoyed it.
Bittersweet by Cathy Cassidy- This really let me down and I was so disappointed. 🙁

    Ooh, great haul! I’m desperate to read Crown of Midnight so let me know what you think 🙂 Stolen is an amazing book so The Killing Woods is on my wishlist too! The Quietness is one of few historical fiction books that I’ve liked and Level 2 wasn’t for me but I hope you feel differently. Book clubs sound great! Happy reading 🙂

    CROWN OF MIDNIGHT IS FANTASTIC FABULOUS AMAZING MY FAVOURITE BOOK OF 2013 SO FAR OMG <3333 Chaol <33333333333 Sorry I had to spazz I just love CoM so much! I seriously hope you enjoy it DDD:

    I have Level 2 but haven’t read it yet… It looks like a fast read though so don’t worry I’m sure you’ll get through it quickly.

    I’m considering reading Born Wicked. It has mixed reviews so I’m undecided. Also the new redesigned cover to match Star Cursed >:/ I was going to buy the original cover of BW the other day because it was on sale, then my friend told me it’s because they’re redesigning the cover and I have this OCD about my covers matching so I didn’t get it LOL.

    Happy reading!

    Oooh, The Bunker Diary! Thanks for reminding me – I wanted to buy/borrow this one for ages. Can’t wait to hear what you think 🙂
    And isn’t it great when books just turn up unexpectedly? 🙂
    Have a lovely Sunday! x

    I caved and bought Throne of Glass yesterday so I can’t wait to read it and find out what all the hype is about, because the hype for Crown of Midnight has been incredible! I hope you enjoy your copy 😀 I’ve had Level 2 on my TBR for a while as it’s a 2013 debut but I’ve heard mixed things so I’ll definitely be interested in reading your review of that. Great haul Lucy!

    I really really want to read Level 2 but unfortunately my library is AWFUL and they haven’t got any new books in in like the last 6 months! :((

    Ooooh, I hope you enjoy Crown of Midnight! I found Throne of Glass to be a little slow at times but I’ll probably end up picking this one up to read! I’m so jealous you have Level 2, it looks AMAZING!

    Great haul – enjoy all your new books! 😀

    Awesome Haul! Shame Bittersweet was a disappointment as Cathy always seems to deliver 🙁 I’ve heard so much about Throne of Glass, so I’m really happy to be awaiting a copy in the post. Born Wicked and The Quietness sound awesome. Enjoy 😀
