Book Haul

Letterbox Love (19)

Letterbox Love


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.

This is a manic, packed haul today from last week which was Bath Kids Lit Fest. I’ve tried to put piles into some order, so I hope it’s clear!

Noughts and Crosses and Checkmate by Malorie Blackman – I still need to read Checkmate but I loved Noughts and Crosses. I read it when I was just starting to seriously get into YA and so it means quite a lot to me.

Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas- You can read my review of Crown of Midnight here.

The Knife of Never Letting Go and More Than This by Patrick Ness – I still need to read TKoNLG but I loved More Than This.

Noble Conflict by Malorie Blackman- Am hoping to read this one in the next few weeks.

    Nice haul of books. I see some interesting ones and some old ones that I enjoyed. I still need to read Angelfall before I get to World After.

    What an amazing haul! I hope you enjoy The Day I Met Suzie – thanks for giving me Dance of Shadows!

    You really need to read The Knife of Never Letting Go – it’s incredible! I’m so excited you’ve finally decided to give it a chance! One of my favourites!

    So many awesome books! I loved The Knife of Never Letting Go even more than More Than This so I hope you like it too! Patrick Ness has become one of my favourite authors.

    I keep meaning to reread The Raven Boys because I didn’t enjoy it that much first time round, but everyone raves about it. I have it on audiobook so hoping that might win me over. I still need to read Angelfall but I have it on my Kindle so hopefully I can get to it soon and then read World After!

    The Name of the Star is one of my favourite books and I loved the sequel too.

    I haven’t heard of Gloss before so that’s one I’m going to go and look up! Great haul Lucy, enjoy your lovely books 😀

    Most welcome 🙂 Nice haul this week Lucy, I approve! I’ve got The Name of The Star to read too, found it in a charity shop last month – it’s my first Maureen Johnson and I’m really looking forward to it! Pity for overwhelming TBR piles, huh?

    That’s a fab haul for this week Lucy! I’ve got quite a few of these books myself but still need to read them! :/ I’m glad you had a great time at the Bath Kids Lit Fest, I wish I could have gone but it’s a bit of a trek for me. Happy reading!

    YOU STILL HAVE NOT READ ‘THE KNIFE OF NEVER LETTING GO’?! Lucy, you NEED to! It’s all kinds of brilliant.
    ‘Audrey, Wait!’ is another brilliant read. There is a lot of swearing in it which makes some people not appreciate it as much but I really liked it. ‘Noble Conflict’ is also really, really good (well it’s Malorie Blackman, of course it is!)

    Wow Lucy this haul is amazing! I’m so jealous that you got to meet so many wonderful authors and get signed copies!! I can’t wait to see what you make of World After, it was a lot different to Angelfall, but I still enjoyed it! Happy reading! 🙂

    Though I only liked The Raven Boys, I’m doing a book swap with Hawwa at the mo. for The Dream Thieves! I don’t know why but I’m super excited – possibly because I might like this one more!

    I actually received The Day I Met Suzie as a proof months and months ago so I could read it and fill out a survey on it for the publishers and it turned out not to be my thing – I didn’t enjoy it at all, unfortunately! I hope you enjoy it though! 😀

    Great haul hun! 🙂 I didn’t realize that I have followed you on Twitter for ages but I wasn’t following your blog! (rectified now via Bloglovin’!:))

    I have just bought Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight! I could not take the hype any more so I caved in! 🙂

    I loved The Chaos Walking Trilogy! It was sooo good! 🙂

    I have Time Between Us and The Name of the Star on my TBR. They have been there a while but hopefully I will get round to them soon! (she saysss!)

    The House of Night series is pretty good. It was one of the first vampire YA book series I read so even though it is a bit flawed, It holds a special place on my shelves!

    Happy reading my dear! 🙂

    My Showcase Sunday 🙂
