Letterbox Love (#67)

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 Killing Woods by Lucy Christopher
This is the finished UK paperback and a book I'm not sure I want to read, simply because I'm a scaredy cat.  However, it's marketed as a psychological thriller so perhaps I could handle that and I've only heard good things about both the writer and the book. 

Unbreakable by Kami Garcia (Finished UK Paperback)
Whenever I hear this title, I always think of the Bruce Willis movie and the concept of arch nemesis.  THIS is not what this story is about.  I'm surprised to see that it's a paranormal since that has become a bit of a dirty word in publishing (what I mean by that is that it seems most agents/publishers aren't looking for these kinds of stories anymore) but I guess it's easier if you're already a well known, published author.  I'm intrigued by the story and will definitely give it a go. 

Looking for JJ by Anne Cassidy (Unsolicited)
This is not the usual kind of book that I read and for that reason alone, I think I should give it a go.  I like the idea of reading outside of my comfort zone. 

Dark Storm by Christine Feehan (Unsolicited)
I do find it laughable that a publisher thought to send me the twenty third book in a series I've never read.  I don't mean to sound ungrateful but what were they thinking?!  I'm not about to read twenty two books just so I can catch up therefore, this is one for the library. 

Deception Cove by Jaybe Ann Krentz (Unsolicited)
This is the tenth book in a series that I've never read and whilst it does sound quite interesting, again, I'm not going to read  nine books so I can catch up.  Another one for the library.

Thank You Publishers!!!

Books Bought
I have not bought any physical books this week.


Branded by Abi Ketner and Missy Kalicicki (Bought)
This is a dystopian New Adult book and I find the synopsis of this book so interesting hence the reason I bought it ;)

Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Bought)
This is the fourth book in the Lux series and quite frankly, I'm surprised I haven't read it by now as I'm desperate to know what happens (especially after the ending of the last book!)  If it weren't for a couple of blog tours I have to prepare for, I would totally be reading this TODAY. 

You Are Mine by Janeal Falor (Netgalley - For Review)
I'm extremely intrigued in this Witch/Warlock book but for me, the synopsis reads like it should be New Adult or Adult rather then YA.  It could have taken a darker or more erotic turn then since it's about "being owned".   Maybe that's just my mind, I don't know LOL

Keeping Her by Cora Carmack (Netgalley - For Review)
This is the sequel and a short novella to Losing It, a book I really enjoyed when I read it ages and ages ago.  It's nice to see that this series has now come to the UK and I'm looking forward to continuing the story.

This has been a week of re-reading for me.  Don't ask me why because I have no idea, especially when I have a ton of books I want to read but sometimes a particular book will call to you and you either ignore it or give in to it.  I gave in.  I'm re-reading The Secret for a little spiritual intervention whilst simultaneously revisiting the world of Christian Grey.  I can't help myself. I'm about to start Light of the Moon by David James as it keeps calling to me!! What are you reading? As always, I hope you had a great week for books and please share your links below.

  1. Wow! Lots of books this week! I'll do mine tomorrow evening after work. I haven't re-read a book for ages, but there's a few I'm hoping too soon (I say soon, it will probably be Christmas!) xx
