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! Lots of library books this week (I know I’m a bad person). Just when I was getting my pile down! :
So many books! Fist week haul on the left. Although ‘Wool‘ by Hugh Howey is an adult book, it sounds quite dystopian-esque. And the cover is all soft and matte-like! To make up for it I have ‘Shivers‘ by Bali Rai which is a tiny tiny book. I also picked up ‘Virals‘ by Kathy Reichs for keeps. I have always meant to get into her series (is there 3 now?) so hopefully now I can.
Yesterday I picked up three books by Nicholas Sparks: ‘The Wedding‘, ‘The Choice‘ and ‘The Guardian‘. This is because on Wednesday I am attending an event where he is signing books, and there are two actors from his latest book-to-film adaptation, ‘Safe Haven’. Confession: Okay, so I haven’t actually read any of his books. But I have seen a lot of films that his books are based on!
It is also an excuse to visit Waterstones Piccadilly, which is massive! Fingers crossed I can find some good books there!
I ordered ‘Where She Went‘ by Gayle Forman because everyone is raving about her latest book, so I thought I’d check out one of her previous ones. I didn’t realise this was the second one, so I’ve ordered the first one! So more books to come (oops).
Finally, ‘Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe‘ by Shelley Coriell. I vaguely remember someone reading this and liking it, so when my library ordered it, I thought I’d put my name down. And it’s a yummy hardcover! Not so good for the commute, but pretty all the same.
And for ebooks:
‘Someday, Someday, Maybe‘ by Lauren Graham. Thanks to Netgalley and Random House! This book just sounds really good; about an actress trying to make it in New York, it is full of hopes and dreams. And I just adore the cover. So simple, yet so perfect.
‘Anthem for Jackson Dawes‘ by Celia Bryce was quite a shock, as I really didn’t expect to be approved for this. I looove road trip books, and I like the typography on this cover. Thanks very much Bloomsbury and Netgalley 🙂
‘Straightjacket‘ by Meredith Towbin was sent to me by the author for review. Thanks Meredith! The main character is a girl in a psychiatric hospital who sees an angel. This sounds right up my street, and you should check it out if it sounds like yours too.
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!
