Letterbox Love #13

Letterbox Love is a meme hosted by Lynsey of Narratively Speaking whereby book lovers can exhibit the books they received this week.

Welcome to my 2-week haul post! First from my beloved library:

P1050119

Kill Order by James Dashner. This was an amazing series, and I can’t wait to find out how it all began! I resisted buying this for my birthday as I knew I had it on order. Thank god I didn’t have to wait long 🙂 

Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson. I have wanted to read this for ages, but had to wait for my library to order a copy. Finally it is in! 

Survive by Alex Morel. I returned a proof copy (MetaWars- my 4 sofa review coming soon) on Saturday, and I just couldn’t resist picking up another. It is compared to the tv series ‘Lost’ which I loved, so I HAD to take it home. Right?….

Now for ebooks:

Ever (Ever, #1)A Matter of Fate (Fate Series, #1)

 

 

Ever by Jessa Russo. Thanks to her for letting me take part in the blog tour! So check back on March 21st for my review. I know it is gonna be good though, I mean look at the cover! So mysterious and pretty….

 

I’m also taking part in the blog tour for A Matter of Fate by Heather Lyons. Thanks to Nereyda from YA Bound for organising. Check back on February 28th for my review of this supernatural YA debut!

 

I tried not to request any books this week, as I am still waiting to hear from Harper Collins about all their lovely Edelweiss books 😦 But I doubt I will get approval anyway! So Netgalley sent me an email, and I thought I’d just check what was new, and got a bit carried away….

Hidden (Avena, #1)

There are Reasons Noah Packed No Clothes

 

Hidden by Marianne Curley. Thanks to Bloomsbury! The cover is gorgeous, I love the blue against the black and white cover.

 

 

There are Reasons Noah Packed No Clothes by Robert Jacoby. Sometimes simple covers are the best, and I thank Cloud Books for a copy of this. This is about a 19-yo boy who overdoses. I love hospital/illness type books, so I am expecting good things!

 

Heart Like MineFragments (Partials, #2)

 

Heart Like Mine by Amy Hatvany from Atria Books. I requested this because it has kids in it! Lol. The plot seems really interesting, very Jodi Picoult-like. I haven’t heard of this author before, so I am excited to see what this is like.

 

Finally, but certainly not leastly, Fragments by Dan Wells. I know I haven’t read Partials yet, but I got it in my birthday haul. And everyone has given it good recommendations. Many many thanks to Harper Collins, you guys rock! If only you would approve me on Edelweiss….

 

 

  What did you receive this week? Have you read any of my books and do you think it should be at the top or the bottom of my to read pile? I’d love to hear from you! 

Letterbox Love #8

Letterbox Love is a meme hosted by Lynsey of Narratively Speaking whereby book lovers can exhibit the books they received this week.

An epic library haul this week 😀

P1050066Firstly something festive; ‘A Merry Little Christmas‘ by Julia Williams. Doesn’t that cover make you feel all Christmassy? Also Alison Mercer’s ‘Stop the Clock‘, because I love an intriguing book. The next three are all a bit of a cheat; they are books I already had from the library in hardback, but I’ve ordered the paperback as it’s easier for the commute!

The Chocolate Lover’s Club‘ by Carole Matthews, ‘Lone Wolf’ by Jodi Picoult and ‘Meet me at the Cupcake Cafe‘ by Jenny Colgan have all been on my tbr shelf for a while. I love a good chick flick to separate my YA/dystopian stuff.

And because I was seriously missing out on some YA stuff, I borrowed (read: stole!) two books from my good librarian friend.

P1050068

Breathe‘ by Sarah Crossan has been on my want list for ages, so when I discovered she had a proof copy hanging around, I had to get my hands on it! The only sad part is this doesn’t have a pretty cover. Likewise, Cat Clarke’s ‘Undone‘ is one I am very excited about, and I can’t believe I have a copy! Fingers crossed it lives up to my expectations. 

Now for ebooks!

The Sea of Tranquility

Thanks to Netgalley and Atria Books for ‘The Sea of Tranquillity‘ by Katja Millay. It’s not a book I’ve heard of, but the blurb sounds like my kind of read!

Chocolate-Covered BaloneyChocolate-covered Baloney‘ by KD McCrite sounds like a funny diary-type novel. Thanks to Thomas Nelson and Netgalley. I didn’t realise this was part of a series, but I hope it won’t matter!

 

 

Parallel Visions

The cover for this one is stunning, thanks to JKS Communications and Netgalley for ‘Parallel Visions‘ by Cheryl Rainfield.

Model Spy (The Specialists, #1)Ditto the thanks for ‘Model Spy‘ by Shannon Greenland. Squee! This book looks similar to Ally Carter’s spy series at first glance, but I love a powerful female lead!

 

Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1)

You have no idea my level of excitement when I found I was approved for ‘Pushing the Limits‘ by Katie McGarry! I have heard much good things about this steamy read! Many, many thanks to Harlequin and Netgalley!

Another 365 Days

I am always intrigued by YA LGBT novels, as I don’t really think there are many good books out there. But can ‘Another 365 days‘ by Ke Payne meet my expectations? Thanks to Bold Strokes and Netgalley.

Phew! What a list! I’ve gotta storm through ‘A Merry Little Christmas’ and the two proofs and then I think I will knuckle down with my ebooks. Please let me know your opinions on the above if you’ve already read them!

What did you receive this week? Have you read any of my books and do you think it should be at the top or the bottom of my to read pile? I’d love to hear from you!
