Letterbox Love (#43)

As always, Letterbox Love is a 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) 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!)


Review Books

No review books this week

Books Bought



Pivot Point by Kasie West
I have heard nothing but praise for this book around the blogosphere and I like the idea that the main character can see into the future and affect her own life by using the knowledge she gains.  In some ways, it reminds me of Touched by Cyn Balog in that respect.  Definitely looking forward to reading this.

Ebooks
  
Wait for You by J. Lynn (Bought)
It's Jennifer L. Armentrout, need I say more?  I read the first few chapters of this and was eager for more (as always).  Can't wait to dive in :)

Beneath This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas (Bought)
I just read This Man (the first book) and HAD TO buy the second book which was sadly more expensive (grrrr).  I loved this one too and I'm hoping to get my reviews out soon. 

The Cirque by Ryann Kerekes (Bought)
I think this sounds really interesting and I love the fact that it's set in a circus which is an original setting for this kind of book. 

Promise by Kristie Cook (Free)
I got this because it has won awards and has some high praise for it.  It looks like an angel/demon book with a bit of steaminess to it which is always good! 

Big Girls Do It Better by Jasinder Wilder (Free)
I like the idea that this is about a bigger girl, especially as lot of romance and erotica features a petite, stunning looking girl.  THAT'S why I want to read this. 

Tempt Me by Isabel Morin (Free)
This is a 28,000 novella so it will be quick to read and I think it sounds potentially entertaining.

It's been a slow week for review books (although I have had to reschedule a parcel delivery - admittedly, I have no idea what it is) but I'm not complaining, I've got MORE THAN ENOUGH to be reading.  I decided after a week of seeing torturous tweets about Lauren Destefano's Sever, I had to read it so that's what I'm reading right now.  I'm desperately trying NOT to rush ahead to the infamous chapter 24 which apparently has caused a lot of shock reactions from readers.  We shall see my friends, we shall see...

I hope you had a great week for books and as always, please share your links below.
