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 :).

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…
