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

Book Review: The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Title: The Perks of Being a Wallflower  Author: Stephen Chbosky
Series: Standalone
Pages: 213
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Date of Publication: 30th August 2012 (reprint)
Source: Publisher*
Synopsis from Goodreads:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a story about what it’s like to travel that strange course through the uncharted territory of high school. the world of first dates, family dramas, and new friends. of sex, drugs, and the rocky horror picture show. of those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.
My Thoughts:
So many people have been telling me to read Perks for about a year now, and with the movie coming up soon, I thought it was finally time. I mean, it looked quite good, and you have to read the book before the film, right?! Anyway, I decided I would read it on holiday when I had nothing else to do so I could read it all at once, and as it's really not very long this was pretty easy. While it didn't quite live up to my (probably too high) expectations…
