Letterbox Love #1

Letterbox Love is a new weekly feature to be hosted by Narratively Speaking. This feature allows us bloggers to show off the books and book related things we get each week.

We love sharing what we get each week but more than that we love looking at what you received during the week!

So as we missed a week last week with all the goings on in the blogging world we have a few books to show you from over the last two weeks.

SallySo last week I got a package from Bungle which totally made my return to work after the weekend better!  Bungle sent me three books and bookmarks which was a fantastic surprise.  I got The Killables by Gemma Malley (Note the bonus badge!) and The Glass Demon and Wish me Dead by Helen Grant.

This week has been like Christmas for me as I received three of the most anticipated books of 2012.  I got copies of The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa, Until I Die by Amy Plum and Insurgent by Veronica Roth.  Naturally I consumed all three within the week even taking a day off work for Insurgent day which was heaven! All I can say about the above three books is wow - all are utterly brilliant and I can't recommend them enough. I may also need to lie down in a darkened room for a little while - I am emotionally drained...

Over the last two weeks I've gotten some great books! Last week I received two proofs which were Dads, Geeks and Blue Haired Freaks by Ellie Phillips and Seeking Crystal by Joss Stirling. I can't wait to read this one!! I'm loving this series!!!! And I bought Ascend by Amanda Hocking, now I can read all three of them together.

And this week I bought two new books which were Black Dawn by Rachel Caine, I thought this was the last in the series but theres going to be more. And I also bought Amy Plum's Until I Die. I was totally devastated that I didn't get to London for Amy's signing along with other authors I wanted to meet!! And for review I received a copy of Zombies Don't Cry by Rusty Fischer.

Last week I received a review request from Andrea Murray for her second book Vicious. I really enjoyed the the first books, Vivid, and you can read my review here.

So that's what we got over the last two weeks, now we're off to see what you got :)

Love the illustrations Johanna Basford did on the cover of Until I Die. I wonder why the US version didn't include them. Can't wait to read it. Happy reading!

Go to the file on on your web album and rotate clockwise (look for the circular arrows). You might have to update the link, I'm not sure.
