Letterbox Love (#53)

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

Imposter by Susanne Winnacker
This sounds a little bit awesome and the main protagonist immediately makes me think of  Mystique from X-Men. I've heard recently that this is going to be published in the UK by Hodder but not until February, 2014.

Tidal by Amanda Hocking (Unsolicited)
 I don't think I've actually started this series yet but this is the third book in the Watersong collection.  I did like the Trylle series so I'm sure I'll like this too.

Leopard's Prey by Christine Feehan (Unsolicited)
This is the sixth book in the Leopard's People series, a series I've never read but I'm guessing (and it IS only a guess) that you can read this as a standalone otherwise I have no idea why the publisher would send it to me.  I can't say for sure that I will read it but if I don't, I will donate it to my local library. 
  Thank You Publishers!!!!

Books Bought
I did not buy any physical books this week.


Holding On by Emma Hart (Bought)
This is a New Adult contemporary romance book from the Memories series and it's written by a British author, and set in England.  It sounds like a cute Summer romance kind of book. 

Always Remember by Emma Hart (Bought)
This is a companion novella to Holding on and a prequel to the next book, Always Remember. 

Until I Break by M. Leighton (Bought)
I'll be honest, I was waiting until the price went down for this one but when I heard that Michelle was pulling it from the virtual shelves (apparently, there had been some negativity over the story although I cannot see where as all the reviews are 4-5 stars) I jumped on it.  

The Next Forever by Lisa Burstein (Bought)
I thought I already had a copy of this but apparently, I didn't.  This went down in price and so I bought it while it was on sale. I have yet to tackle Lisa's books but I love her online presence and think me and her could be besties in real life so I have high hopes that I'll enjoy her writing!
Allusive Aftershock by Susan Griscom (Bought)
This is a Young Adult novel with the same cover novels for Jennifer L. Armentrout's books!  When I read "What happens when a major earthquake changes life as you know it and the boy you thought you hated ends up saving you? Three times!"  I WAS HOOKED. 

Anathema by K.A. Tucker (Bought)
I paid 77p for this but it's currently free.  This is a New Adult Paranormal book and that's why I wanted to read it. 

Love Me by Diane Alberts (Bought)
This is the sequel to Try Me, a book that I enjoyed and so I thought I'd get the next one.  I'll have to look at my notes to remind myself of the story, hell I might even re-read it if I have to but this is in the queue to be read.

Madly by M. Leighton (Free)
This is a novelette that introduces the reader to the series. I'm not sure if this is a book for me so it's good that this is free so I can try it before deciding whether or not to carry on with the rest of the series. 

Love by Beth Boyd (Free)
Charming, funny AND romantic? Yes please. 

Blurred by Tara Fuller (Won - For Review)
I absolutely LOVED Inbetween and Blurred is the sequel AKA Cash's story.  I actually won this for making a book trailer -  I know, I can't believe it either but I'm so pleased to finally have this on my iPad.

No Strings Attached by Nicolette Day (For Review)
This is an adult contemporary romance by Brazen Books (LOVE Brazen).  You also should know that it's Tara Fuller's alter ego and so it makes me doubly excited to read it!

False Sight by Dan Krokos (Netgalley)
This is the sequel to False Memory which I can't believe I haven't read yet (although I've had it for ages).  I've heard that this is just as amazing as the first book and I'm looking forward to finding that out. 

Every week I tell myself that I'm not going to buy any eBooks and every week, I fail!  I didn't buy any physical books this week though, so there's that.  I still haven't gotten round to reading Goddess because I'm working my way through the Raine Miller books.  Even though I wrote a mixed review for the first one, I feel like I have to see the series to the end and at least they are somewhat entertaining.  What are you reading? As always I hope you had a good week for books and please share your links below.


  1. I'm starting to constantly buy ebooks as well - they're so cheap!

  2. Yeah there's a little compromise when you only buy ebooks - at least they don't up any room!
