Letterbox Love #5

Hey! It's half term so I've got a week off exams so I'm hoping to post a couple of times this week, but we'll see how that goes!

Anyhoo.

I thought I'd start with a showcase of a few of the books I've received in the last couple of months that I'm looking forward to reading after revision and exams are over, as I won't be able to review them anytime soon and I feel I should at least talk a…
