Letterbox Love (#45)

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

The Oathbreaker's Shadow by Amy McCulloch
I am DYING to read this book and have to thank my amazing friend Viv for getting this for me recently when she met Amy (sadly, I could not go).  Thanks also to Amy for signing it :)

The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd
 This book looks so interesting and I bought the US hardback recently.  I actually asked the publisher not to send this because of that but it got sent anyway!  Not to worry, I'm sure I will find a good home for it. 

Infamous by Sherrilyn Kenyon (Unsolicited)
I've never read this series and I'm probably not going to so this one is going to the library.

By Any Other Name by Laura Jarratt (Unsolicited)
I actually quite like the sound of this book about a girl who witnesses a crime and is put into witness protection, thus having to reinvent herself and basically keep her head down.  I'm intrigued for sure. 

Don't Look Back by S.B. Hayes (Unsolicited)
So this book sounds a little creepy and I really don't know what to make of it as it's not normally the kind of story I would read.  Not sure if I will read this one although I like the idea of reading outside of my comfort zone. 

The Hit by Melvin Burgess (Unsolicited)
This is not my kind of book and so it's going to the library for others to enjoy.

Thank You Publishers!!!

Books Bought

A Touch Menacing by Leah Clifford
I really enjoyed the first book in this series and whilst I'm a little behind, I now have all three books in my possession (no waiting, yay!)


The Truth about Letting Go by Leigh Talbot Moore (Bought)
I bought The Truth about Faking by the same author some time now (which incidentally is 49p for kindle right now) and I just happen to see this for the bargain price of 77p.

Beyond Control by Kit Rocha (Bought)
I read and liked the first book Beyond Shame and this is the sequel.  Of course I had to get this!

Depths by Liz Reinhardt and Steph Campbell (Bought)
I'm not sure if this is a sequel or a companion novel to Lengths by the same authors.  Anyway, I want to read both books and when I heard this had been released, I got it.

Sun Kissed (The Guardian Angel Series Book 2) by Skyla Madi (Free)
I got this because it was free but I'm really intrigued by the first book although I haven't bought it yet.   

Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire (For Review)
I don't really need to see a lot about this book do I, apart from the fact that I was dying to read it and couldn't believe it when it popped up on Netgalley as a read it now book for the first 250 people to click on the link.  Needless to say, I read it in one sitting the very same night and it was awesome.  Review coming soon.

So, as you can see, this week's book haul was made of win - especially Walking Disaster and The Oathbreaker's Shadow.  I've already read Walking Disaster and I can't wait to get started on The Oathbreaker's Shadow!  I've been really good with the ebooks this week, too so I'm happy about that.  I started reading Gone Girl but put it down and I'm working way through The Collector by Victoria Scott right now.  As always, I hope you had a good week for books and please share your links below.


  1. I'm so looking forward to By Any Other Name as I loved Laura's debut. The Madman's Daughter looks really great as well.

  2. It looks like you've got some great books. Sooooo jealous that you've already read Walking Disaster. Hope you enjoy all your books.

  3. The Madman's Daughter looks awesome! And some nice looking ebooks too :)
