Letterbox Love (#2)


Letterbox Love is a new weekly feature that I'm hosting on the blog and basically, the idea came out of a discussion with other UK book bloggers about the need to do a weekly meme with more of a British feel to it.  Therefore, Letterbox Love was born and the logo was lovingly designed by Dark Readers.  Letterbox Love is a way for us to share the books that come through our letterbox, galleys and e books (through our electronic letterbox - see what I did there?!) and any other bookish goodies that we want to tell you about.  Letterbox Love is intended to showcase upcoming books and build up some excitement for them as well as let you know what is available out there.  It is not about competing with other bloggers or boasting of any kind (c'mon, we're British and we don't do drama!)

So, without further a do, here's what I got this week...



Review Books
Shine by Jeri Smith Ready (Simon & Schuster)
Changeling by Philippa Gregory (Simon & Schuster)

Thank you publishers!!!




Books Bought
Last Rite by Lisa Desrochers (Paperback)



E-Books
Epic Fail by Claire LaZebnick (Bought)
Immortal Awakening by K.C. Randall (Bought)
A Thief of Nightshade by J.S. Chancellor (Free)


I also have a red card from the Royal Mail telling me that there are two books waiting for me at the post office so I'm going to include those in next week's post. I have no idea whether they are review books or otherwise.

It is my plan to get Mr Linky working on here so you can all link your Letterbox Love posts but in the meantime, I would love you to leave a comment with the link to your post and I will check them out :) Thanks everyone :)

    1. I have to confess that I still haven't started Jeri's books yet and this is something that needs to be rectified this year! Last Rite was AWESOME. I love Lisa Desrocher's books :)

  4. I like the look of the Phillipa Gregory book- I love her adult books so a YA book is bound to be amazing.
    And you got Shine! I'm jealous- I can't wait to see how the series ends.
    Enjoy your books

  13. I found out about Letterbox Love through Faye at A Daydreamer's Thoughts.

    After seeing the cover for Changeling, I had a look at the Amazon info and it looks interesting. In fact, it's now on my "To Buy" list.

  15. Nice haul Lynsey! I participate in an IMM meme...but call my posts "In My Letterbox" (for the reasons you describe!) for my physical books. Would you mind if I also joined Letterbox Love?
