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 was expecting to have a tiny haul this week but then splashed out yesterday when visiting a charity shop- they’re just so good!
Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi- I received this from Rebekah at Reflections of a Bookworm who I read Shatter Me with. Unfortunately, she didn’t like it as much as I did so she offered to send this to me. Thank you, Rebekah!
Half Lives by Sara Grant- I was so pleased when this dropped through my letterbox yesterday. It came wrapped up in a cute lilac bow and had a little note enclosed. Thank you to the lovely Georgia at Books and Writers JNR for this!
Heart-Shaped Bruise by Tanya Byrne- I’m reading this at the moment and it’s so, so good! Tanya is going to be at the Bath Kids Lit Festival in October so I thought I’d better read her books before the event. Highly recommended!
Wonder by R.J. Palacio- I’ve been meaning to read this one for a while now and can’t wait to get started on it. I’ve heard amazing things about it so am sure I’ll enjoy it.
The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory- I was really sad that I didn’t like Changeling, Gregory’s YA novel, so I thought I ought to give her novels another girl and I’m really looking forward to starting this one.
Where She Went by Gayle Forman- I haven’t read If I Stay yet but having this should make me get a move on and start it.
The One and Only by Sophie McKenzie- I haven’t read anything by this author before but this looks like a really good read and so I can’t wait to read it.
The Secret Countess by Eva Ibbotson- I haven’t read anything by Eva Ibbotson yet but I’d seen Luisa Plaja mention her books on Twitter so thought I would buy this and see what I thought of it.
The Lady in the Tower: The Fall of Anne Boleyn by Alison Weir- This will be the first book by this author I’ve read and I cannot wait to start it. I love historical fiction so much and this looks really promising.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte- I’m currently reading Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte and am trying to read a classic a month now. I love the sound of this one.
Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin- Again, this is my first book of this author’s and it sounds really good. I haven’t read many amnesia books so I’m not too sure what to expect.
Blood Red Road by Moira Young- I’ve already read this but didn’t have my own copy so decided to pick this one up to add to my shelf; it’s one of my favourite books.
Split by a Kiss + Swapped by a Kiss by Luisa Plaja- These are the only two of Luisa’s books that I haven’t yet read and was really pleased when I saw them because they both look amazing.
Just in Case by Meg Rosoff- As has been common in this haul, I haven’t read anything by this author yet and have heard brilliant things about her books. I’m really looking forward to starting this one.
What did you get this week? Link back to your own hauls and I’ll be sure to check them out!
