Letterbox Love #2



So I haven't done a Letterbox Love or IMM or book haul or anything for months now, and I used to love these posts so I thought I'd start them up again, especially as I've got some awesome books these last couple of weeks! I've only included the books I've received in 2013 and for Christmas, because I couldn't remember what I got before... :P


Apologies for the books not being in the centre of the picture. If that bothers you. It bothers me :P

BOUGHT

Night School: Legacy by CJ Daugherty
I absolutely love this series! This one was brilliant, my review's coming soon.
How to Save A Life by Sara Zarr (Not pictured; ebook)
Only 99p in the Kindle sale - looking forward to this one as I've only heard good things!

GIFTED

Ingenue by Jillian Larkin
This was from my parents for Christmas. My only book (unless you include the Doctor Who 2013 annual :P) but it doesn't matter because I'm sure it'll be awesome! Absolutely adored the first one so can't wait to read this!


RECEIVED FOR REVIEW

Dead Romantic by CJ Skuse (Chicken House Books)
Cannot wait for this one! Looks awesome :D Out in February.

Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black (Bloomsbury Children's)
The cover for this one is absolutely gorgeous! It sounds really good too, so I'm looking forward tor reading this! Out February.

Just One Day by Gayle Forman (Random House Children's)
I read and loved If I Stay and Where She Went a year or two ago, so I'm looking forward to reading this romance in Paris! This one's already released.

The Hanged Man Rises by Sarah Naughton (Simon and Schuster Children's Books)
I asked for this one because it sounded good, and completely different to anything else I've really read before! It's nice and short so I might read this one in the week before my January exams, so I can read but not be too distracted because it's not too long! Out February.

The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (Simon and Schuster Children's Books)
AGH I am SO excited for this one! The cover's gorgeous, as the first one was, and I just can't wait to read more about Mara and Noah... They're great! I think I'll read it as a reward after my January exams. Out February.

Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans (Usborne)
I actually was lucky enough to attend the launch party for this book, and met Lenore herself. She was super awesome and the event was great and I'm reading this now and even though I'm only on Chapter 2 I really like it so far :) Out 15th January.

Thanks to Lynsey at Narratively Speaking for hosting Letterbox Love! Let me know in the comments what you've received this week, or leave me a link to your post if you've got one :)

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…
