Book Haul

Letterbox Love (6)

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 is my book haul for the past two weeks because I was incredibly lazy and didn’t feel like posting one last week.  I’m really pleased with the books I did receive in these past two weeks, even though I haven’t received as many as I do some weeks.

Library Haul: 

The Demon Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan- I haven’t read anything by this author before but think her books are quite similar to those written by Cassandra Clare so I’m hoping that I’ll enjoy this one.
How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr- I’ve been wanting to read this for ages but haven’t managed to get it until now. It seems like a really good contemporary and I really need to start reading more contemporary because it’s one of my favourite genres AND my blog name is Queen of Contemporary!
Steampunk! An Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange Stories- I really don’t know what I’ll think of this book but Cassandra Clare wrote a part of it so I couldn’t refuse it!
Daughter of the Flames by Zoe Marriott- I’ve wanted to read a book by this author for a while now and so I’m really glad that I’ve got hold of this.
Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs- This isn’t a book that I’ve wanted to read for ages but it looks really good and I’m hoping to read it very soon.

Parallel by Lauren Miller (ARC)- This popped through my letterbox on Friday, much to my surprise, and I’m really looking forward to reading it. Thank you, Scholastic!

Sort of bought:

The Great Gatsby by F. Schoot Fitzgerald- Technically, I didn’t buy this: my mum did. I’ve decided to ‘steal’ it off of her though because it looks really good and I’m going to try and read more classics.

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

    Ah The Great Gatsby! I love this book so much, it is definitely one of the better classics. And it is one of the only books I’ve studied and analysed to death that I’ve come out loving in the end! The movie also looks AMAZING (my cousin’s in it…) and I think it will really show the best parts of the book well. I hope. And I mean Leonardo Di Caprio is Gatsby and who doesn’t like him?!
    Ah I also have How to Save a Life, haven’t read it yet. It looks really good. Hope you enjoy your books especially The Great Gatsby (sorry for my rambling here)!

    I read Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan last year and loved it, and have been meaning to try her earlier books ever since. I have a copy of The Demon Lexicon waiting for me on my shelf. 🙂 And I hope you like How to Save a Life! I’ve heard great things about Sara Zarr’s books. 🙂

    Ooh, great books! I really want read How to Save a Life. Hopefully, I made a deal with another book blogger and we are swapping books so it should be coming soon. 🙂 I have read the Fins series by Tera Lynn Childs and enjoyed that so I am interested to see how Sweet Venom is. I want to read a Zoe Marriot book too! Parallel looks interesting and I hope you enjoy The Great Gatsby. I love classics.

    Happy reading, Lucy! 🙂
