Letterbox Love #1

Hello! Seeing as I haven't done an In My Mailbox in such a long time, I thought I'd do one again but switch over to the UK version - Letterbox Love, hosted by Lyndsey at Narratively Speaking. Not because I don't like IMM because of what happened agess ago, but I just thought that I should probably do the UK version now seeing as I'm a UK blogger... ;P


I have absolutely loads to show you, because I haven't done one for ages. Hopefully after this they'll be semi-regular, hopefully at least once a month, but we'll see. So this is for THE LAST FEW MONTHS. Sorry for caps lock, but I always get at least one person in the comments asking how I got so much in one week... ;)

Woah. All finished now. This is everything I received since the beginning of June. I have a question: Do you find this post braggy? I'm aware I have a received a lot of books recently, and I definitely don't want you guys to think I'm showing off or being braggy: I just haven't shown you what I've got for ages... And I like doing book hauls because I like to give books that I'm not going to get around to reading soon or ones that I miss out at least a little bit of a mention before their reviews... And I love looking at other people's! So let me know in the comments what you think of these posts and hopefully I can do them more regularly in the future so it won't be such a chore to read through next time! 

Thanks to Cicely, Viv, Jim, MIRA Ink, Simon & Schuster, Random House, Chicken House, Hodder and Stoughon, HarperCollins, Macmillan, Strange Chemistry, Bloomsbury and Egmont for all my books these last couple of months! You are all seriously awesome! :D

Synopsis from Goodreads:Growing up in her sleepy Cornish village dreaming of being a writer, sixteen-year-old Lou has always wondered about the grand Cardew house which has stood empty for years. And when the owners arrive for the summer - a handsome, dashing brother and sister - Lou is quite swept off her feet and into a world of moonlit cocktail parties and glamour beyond her wildest dreams.

REVIEW: It's A Wrap by Perdita and Honor Cargill

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising...

Synopsis from Goodreads:Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever!

Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in the right direction. But with social media…

SERIES REVIEW: The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Hello! Welcome to my appreciation post for one of my favourite series - The Illuminae Files!


I'm going to try and keep it non-spoilery but be cautious if you've only read Illuminae and/or Gemina
THE FACTS: Series title: The Illuminae Files
Series authors: Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Publisher: Rock the Boat
Series completion date: 13th March, 2018

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto one of the evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results…
