Letterbox Love and Week in Review (11/8/12)



Letterbox Love is a UK based alternative to the popular US In My Mailbox meme and a fun way for British (and non-British) bloggers to share the fab books we may have got this week.

This week I finally got the £50 Amazon vouchers that I won months ago through and decided to cut down my wishlist and get some books that I have been really excited to read, so I got some awesome books, I have saved half of the money in case anything I just NEED comes out. All of the books I got this week eBooks except one, which I bought before going on my print book buying ban. 


For Review (All eBooks from NetGalley)

Katya's World Speechless The Future We Left Behind Refuge

Katya's World by Jonathan L. Howard (Angry Robot/Strange Chemistry, Nov 6th 2012)
This is a post apocalyptic title that I am so looking forward to reading!

Speechless by Hannah Harrington (Harlequin Teen, August 28th 2012)
I'm planning on reading this one this week. I loved Saving June so excited for this one too!

I loved 0.4 so can't wait to read this one.

Refuge by Carole Rummage (Cedar Fort, Nov 13th 2012)
Not 100% sure what this is about but sounds mysterious!

Bought/Amazon Giftcard

The Forsaken (The Forsaken, #1) Magic Under Stone The Repossession Second Chance Summer Unearthly (Unearthly, #1) ExtraNormal (ExtraNormal, #1)

The Forsaken by Lisa M Stasse - The only print book I bought this week
This looks kind of The Hunger Games/Battle Royale, I am so up for this!

I loved Magic Under Glass so I can't wait to read this

This sounds creepy and mysterious - oooh!

I loved Amy And Roger's Epic Detour so HAD to buy this.

Everyone seems to have read this and I haven't yet

I love this cover, that's all!
