Letterbox Love (4)

Hi guys! Just wanted to leave a quick update on this post for those of you who’ve been wondering where I’ve got to this week. I’ve had the worst summer cold, just as the weather’s started to get really nice here in England as well! This is why I haven’t posted over the last few days. I’m starting to recover now though and although my brain still feels a bit too headachy and icky to write a coherent book review, I do feel well enough to post something so decided I’d share with you the wonderful books I’ve received this week! They certainly cheered me up and put a smile on my face when I was feeling miserable and the rest of the UK was so cheery and enjoying the sunshine, summer colds really are the worst aren’t they?


Letterbox Love is a new meme hosted by Lynsey @ Narratively Speaking for UK based book bloggers to showcase the book’s that they’ve received each week.

 Review Books


Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin (Proof Copy) I've heard nothing but great things about this book from US bloggers, this is defintely a book that is creating quite a stir in the book world already and it sounds right up my street, I have a feeling that I'm going to love this one so I'll defintely be reading this sometime over the summer!

The Reckoning by Alma Katsu I really enjoyed the first book in this series The Taker so I'm excited to get to this one soon!

Soul Fire by Kate Harrison (Proof Copy) This is the sequel to Soul Beach a book that I absolutely loved when I read it last summer, very excited to read this next instalment it will make for a thrilling beach read that's for sure!

The Vampire of Highgate by Asa Bailey This is a vampire story based on true events and is set in the UK! I do love books set in my own country so I'm looking forward to checking this one out.

Summer Nights by Allie Spencer You guys know that I love a bit of chick-lit to break up some of my YA reading especially beachy, fun, romantic, summer reads! This one looks like it's going to tick all of those boxes so I look forward to reading this over a sunny weekend in my garden.


So those were all of the wonderful books I was lucky enough to be sent for review this week. As always HUGE thank you's to the lovely publishing people who have sent me these brilliant new titles. If you’ve read or are looking forward to any of the books I got feel free to let me know what you thought about them or request reviews and such in the comments. And if you decided to do a Letterbox Love, Book Haul, IMM, Mailbox Monday or whatever else featuring the books you got this week leave me a link as I’d love to check out your books too! ^_^ Hopefully things will be back to normal next week and I can bring you some reviews for some excellent books that I've been reading lately but until then happy reading till next time folks!
