Letterbox Love (22)

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

 Proof Copies for Review

If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch
The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult
The Accidental Husband by Jane Green

I've not heard much about the Jane Green but I've enjoyed some of her other books well enough so I'm looking forward to getting to it. I've been hearing some AMAZING things for If You Find Me from across the pond and can't wait to see what the fuss is all about. I'm a huge fan of Jodi Picoult's books so The Storyteller brought many squeals of joy on its arrival. This one sounds like such an impossible situation and I've heard whispers that it's her best yet so I can't wait to delve into it soon and I'm such a fan of the cover! 

For Review 

The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris by Jenny Colgan
 Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger
 Losing It by Cora Carmack

Why hello there new Jenny Colgan all pretty with your purple and gold cover tempting me with a story of chocolate and Paris. I'm reading this right now and loving it! The bestie has read Etiquette and Espionage and has been raving about it so I'm pretty excited to check it out. And yay! For some more New Adult with Losing It.


Hallowed by Cynthia Hand
Boundless by Cynthia Hand
The Bunker Diary by Kevin Brooks
My Mad Fat Diary by Rae Earl (Won)

My pretty, shiny, US hardcovers of Hallowed and Boundless arrived this week so I can now continue on with this series, huzzah! I fell pretty hard for the first book Unearthly and can't wait to read these two. I also feel immensely satisfied that the whole series matches, it's a rare thing these days for a series to reach the end without a cover change. I might have fell into Waterstones whilst I was out shopping for Mother's Day pressies and couldn't leave without picking up a copy of The Bunker Diary after seeing it around the blogs lately. AND a copy of My Mad Fat Diary arrived this week which I won from the publishers. I absolutely loved the TV show so I'm looking forward to reading the book, I had a sneaky read of the first page and it's already made me laugh!

 Bookmark Pretties!

Being the bookmark fiend that I am when Dani @ Pen to Paper tweeted about these Gorjuss Bookmarks this week I went straight online and hunted myself a couple down. These two were my favourite but they are all so cute that I can see myself collecting them all! I know, I know, I don't need any more bookmarks but you guys! LOOK HOW PRETTY THEY ARE!

Butter by Erin Lange (For Review) 
Radiant by Cynthia Hand 
The Prince by Kiera Cass 

Butter sounds pretty hard hitting and incredible. It's about a boy who's going to eat himself to death, literally, on purpose. I did a little happy dance when I got approved for this on Netgalley. I also downloaded some Novellas. Radiant - to go with the Unearthly series mentioned above. I recently read The Selection and found it a cute read so I'm looking forward to reading The Prince before The Elite comes out.

That’s it from me for another week! If any of these books have caught your eye and you’d like to find out more about them simply click on the title and the link will take you to Goodreads for a full synopsis, reviews, and to add them to your wishlists. As always thank you to the lovely publishing folk for the review copies. If you’re looking forward to a certain book in particular and want to request a review feel free to in the comments and I’ll do my best to get around to the book sooner rather than later. And if you decided to do a Letterbox Love, Book Haul, IMM, Showcase Sunday, 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! ^_^

 Happy reading till next time!


  1. I've heard good things about the new Jodi Picoult too. Wouldn't mind a surprise review copy of that one! ;) The last book of hers I read was Nineteen Minutes and honestly they were all getting a little formulaic for me by then, so I'm hoping I'll like this one.

    Enjoy all your books - I LOVE the Unearthly series. You are in for a treat! :)

    1. Oh I hope one turns up! I'll definitely let you know what I think when I get around to it and if it's worth checking out. :) I loved Unearthly and can't wait to read Hallowed soon!

  2. I love those book marks. They are so cute.
    I have to read the Unearthly series, as people keep raving about it.
    Samina @ Escapism from Reality

    1. I really want to collect all of them ^_^

      You should check Unearthly out, I can't believe I didn't pick it up sooner! I was missing out on so much!

  3. Those bookmarks are so cute!
    I also bought The Prince this week because I am a huge fan of The Selection, maybe because Maxon is in them...*swoon*
    I liked Unearthly but it wasn't one of my favourite novels so I'll have to pick up Hallowed soon and see if I like it any better.
    Happy reading! :D

    1. Thanks Lucy! I love them! I'm really looking forward to reading The Prince - I not long ago read The Selection. Shame you didn't love Unearthly like I did I adored that book! I hope that you connect with Hallowed more :)

  4. An awesome haul Jess, I admit I wasn't that interested in If You Find Me before, but the reviews lately have been fantastic! Also yay for Etiquette and Espionage and The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris, they both sound amazing! And you'll have to keep me updated with your Unearthly series progress! Happy reading! :)

    1. Thanks Jasprit! The reviews for If You Find Me have really got me interested. I just finished The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris and adored it, really looking forward to getting to Etiquette and Espionage. I'll definitely keep you updated with the series as I go on - I also plan on doing a series review when I'm finished :D

  5. I'm reading the Jodi Picoult book right now its really good. Very powerful story. Can't wait to read the new Jenny Colgan book looks fab!!

    1. Oh! I'm so glad to hear you're enjoying it Sheena! The new Jenny Colgan was wonderful :)

  6. Good haul, I got the new Jane Green too, I'm really looking forward to it!

    1. I'll be looking out to see what you think of it Dot!
