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 :)

Her father was the world's leading geneticist, and humanity's best hope of beating a devastating virus.

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…

Book Review: Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu

Title: Moxie Author: Jennifer Mathieu
Series: n/a
Pages: 340
Publisher: Hodder Children's Books
Date of Publication: 21st September 2017
Source: borrowed from Reading to Recover
Synopsis from Goodreads:
It's time to fight like a girl!

Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with her high school teachers who think the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress codes, hallway harassment and gross comments from guys during class. But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following the rules.

Viv's mum was a tough-as-nails, punk rock Riot Grrrl in the '90s, and now Viv takes a page from her mother's past and creates Moxie, a feminist zine that she distributes anonymously to her classmates. She's just blowing off steam, but other girls respond and spread the Moxie message. As Viv forges friendships with other young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, she realises that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution.
