Letterbox Love #3

Hello! Letterbox Love is hosted by Lynsey over at Narratively Speaking, and it showscases everything we've received in the last week. Mine's for a few weeks though, because I've been lazy, again :P Anyway, onto the books! (Also, really sorry it's really late! My camera wouldn't work and I've been out all day (more details at the bottom))



RECEIVED FOR REVIEW

Prodigy by Marie Lu
This is the sequel to Legend, which came out last year. I really enjoyed Legend, so I'm looking forward to reading this! Thanks to Penguin for this! Released.

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
Again, thanks to Penguin for this one! It's the sequel to Cinder, which is about cyborgs, and I read and loved it in the summer last year so I'm super excited to get to this one! Out February.

The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead
AHHH! Reading this one now and it's as awesome as ever. I LOVE Richelle Mead's YA books so much... Anyway, this is the third book in the Bloodlines series, which is a spin-off to the Vampire Academy series. I definitely recommend you read these books if you haven't already, they're brilliant! Thanks to Penguin again for this one! Release February.

This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
This is the second book from Jennifer E. Smith, and I really enjoyed her first one, The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight, so I'm definitely looking forward to giving this one a read! Thanks Headline! Released April.

In The Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters
I've seen this on several other bloggers' Letterbox Loves and I loved the sound of it, so I cheekily requested a copy for myself. I can't wait - it sounds awesome! Thanks to Abrams and Chronicle for this one. Release April.

Burn For Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian
SO EXCITED for this one! It's going to be awesome, I think! I loved Jenny Han's Summer series, and although I haven't read any of Siobhan Vivian's books, I've heard some great things about them! Thanks to Simon & Schuster! Released February.

Unremembered by Jessica Brody
I don't really know too much about this one but from the synopsis it sounded pretty good so I thought I'd request it and see what it was all about. I'm looking forward to reading it! Have any of you read it? Thanks to Macmillan! Released February.

The Disappearances by Gemma Malley
I wasn't sure about the first in this series, so I'm interested to see what this one is like. I'll check out other bloggers' reviews and then see what they say, so if you've read it and you liked it better than the first one, let me know! Thanks to Hodder for this one. Released April. (Also, if you can't remember what happened in the first book, I will be posting an Happily Ever Ending for The Killables sometime this week or next! Don't know what that is? Click here.)

JOHN GREEN - THE FAULT IN OUR STARS UK TOUR


Okay, so today I went to an awesome event... It was John Green's UK The tour with special guest, Hank Green for The Fault In Our Stars! It was so freaking awesome and I had so much fun! I got this t-shirt, and I bought An Abundance of Katherines especially, and I also got a signed and Hanklerfish-ed UK paperback of The Fault In Our Stars! I took my hardback of TFIOS, and Let It Snow too to get signed and Hanklerfish-ed, and I've taken a picture for you all to see above! Did anyone go, or went to the Swindon show or going to another one this week? Let me know! I couldn't take pictures with them, or get my books personalised, but it was the best day ever, I can't wait until they come back to the UK because I just want to do it all again! :D 

I'm hoping to do a write-up of the event sometime this week, so look out for that (although it's entirely possible that I won't bother, because I'm lazy and also have a busy week coming up!) 

Thanks for reading! Let me know what you got in your letterbox this week in the comments, or let me know which one of these you think I should read first! Happy reading everyone!

  4. Ugh, sometimes I wish I lived in a bigger city. We don't get cool events like the one you mentioned. I would have died being in the same room as John Green.

    Anywho,

    Scarlet is amazing, I hope you like it. I reviewed it a couple weeks ago. I also received Unremembered a couple weeks ago and have plans to read it, I hope it's good.

    Enjoy your books,

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!



Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 


While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Book Review: Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index by Julie Israel

Title: Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index Author: Julie Israel
Series:  n/a
Pages:  308
Publisher: Penguin
Date of Publication: 1st June 2017
Source: For review from publisher*
Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
