Letterbox Love #4

Hey! Welcome to my Letterbox Love for this month, I think it is! Hosted by Lynsey at Narratively Speaking. I might just do these monthly, weekly just isn't working, is it...? Oops! Anyway, here's what I've received recently! Also sorry for the quality of these pictures, they're really not that great!

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
I won this from Rhys at ThirstforFiction agesss ago and I finally got it this week! Can't wait to get started with it - only heard good things about it so far :D I also really like the new cover, which I'd never actually seen before! It's pretty, though lots of people at my youth group thought it was Fifty Shades at first... :S I assured them quickly that it wasn't! It also came with some bookmarks with the old cover, which are super cool. 

Zom-B City by Darren Shan
Third in the Zom-B series. Super excited - the last one ended on a huge cliffhanger so looking forward to getting to this one! Thanks Simon & Schuster!

The Hit by Melvin Burgess
This was unsolicited from Chicken House, but it looks good! I read Melvin's last book, Kill All Enemies, and actually really enjoyed it, so I'm looking forward to this one. Thanks Chicken House!

Geek Girl by Holly Smale (plus swag)
I was super lucky to be invited to the blogger party for the launch of Geek Girl, which was super fun! They had delicious looking cakes (I had to restrain myself because I've given them up for Lent, but the macaroons I could eat and they were awesome) and ping pong (which I suck at - may have embarrassed myself a little bit while playing that), and it was really, really fun. Holly's super nice and the book's great - and I will hopefully write my review this week and get it posted! Also, as you can see, I have a lot of business cards and Geek badges - if you want one or both, in the UK, tweet me and I'll see what I can do :) Thanks HarperCollins!

Lastly, I also went to another blogger party this week, this time it was MIRA Ink's Blogger Party! I went last year and it was super awesome, so super glad I was reinvited and this year was definitely just as good. I'm hopefully going to do a write-up later this week to tell you a little bit about all the awesome books that are coming up this year. Also, isn't that bag super awesome? I love it :D The books pictured are:

Confessions of an Angry Girl by Louise Rozett
Speechless by Hannah Harrington
Ink by Amanda Sun
The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa (YAY!)
Dare You To by Katie McGarry
The Girl with the Iron Touch by Kady Cross
The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa
With All My Souls by Rachel Vincent
Love Is a Thief by Claire Garber

So that's what I've received in the last month or so, what have you got? Leave me a link in the comments, and if you have any recommendations out of what to read first, let me know! Thanks for reading!


  1. OOh wow! Congrats on your win!

    Little envious of your physical ARCs there! Have Kady Cross's to read myself and already devoured The Eternity Cure, but they were e-arcs!

    Happy Reading!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  2. I'm really jealous about Ink! I hope you had a good time at the Mira Ink party :) Also, I must read The Immortal Rules soon! The Eternity Cure sounds great. Happy reading! :)

  3. I'm not sure Between Shades of Grey could be any further from Fifty Shades of Grey in terms of plot and writing and characters. LOL! You got some fantastic books this week - I'm most excited for The Eternity Cure! Hope you have a great reading week!

  4. I'm so looking forward to reading Zom-B City and Dare You To. Glad you had fun at the Mira party - I'm so disappointed I couldn't make it.

  5. Oooooh Ink! So jealous, that ones looks awesome. Dare You To and The Eternity Cure look fantastic too! Happy reading :).

Good morning! Hope you're having a good week! Today I have a review for one of the biggest titles at YALC this year.

Book Review: Insight by Jamie Magee

Title: Insight Author: Jamie Magee Series: Insight #1 Pages: 314 Date of UK Publications: July 20th 2010 Source: Received free for a blog tour/event Synopsis from Goodreads: Before that fateful summer night, Willow had balanced the insight of emotion, and the vivid images. That night, the figure in her nightmare marked her wrist with a star, giving her father no choice but to tell Willow a family secret that would abruptly change life, as she knew it, forever. Before Willow had time to absorb the shock of her father's secret, her soul mate that had shared every stunning dream with her, found her, and darkness captured her closest friends. In order to save them, she must weave through broken myths and the undeniable power of the Zodiac. In the end, Willow discovers that at the moment of our birth we are all given a divine gift. My Thoughts: Insight was a good book. The plot was well thought out, and the characters were complex and real. It was a strong debut novel,
