Letterbox Love (18/8/2012) + Week in Review

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.

Hey guys, guess what?! 

I got my A-Level results and they were AWESOME (AAB) so I'm into my dream uni the University of York! So excited :) It has been an AMAZING week for me personally but I haven't had many books through, which I'm glad for since I haven't done much reading :)

For Review:

MetaWars: Fight for the Future Rage Within (Dark Inside, #2) Book cover


Rage Within (Dark Inside #2) by Jeyn Roberts (Panmacmillan, 30th August 2012)
The Wolf Princess by Cathryn Constable (Chicken House, 4th October 2012)

I haven't heart much about METAWARS but it looks pretty sci-fi and middle grade for boys, which I do really like reading, maybe a bit like INSIGNIA by SJ Kincaid? RAGE WITHIN I am so excited to read since I loved DARK INSIDE. THE WOLF PRINCESS is one that I got unsolicited but looks very fairy-tale so I will be reading this one for sure!


Diverse Energies Dearly, Beloved (Gone With the Respiration, #2) Shadows (Ashes Trilogy, #2)

Diverse Energies (Anthology) by Various (Lee & Low, October 1st 2012)
Dearly, Beloved (Dearly #2) by Lia Habel (Del Ray, September 25th 2012)
Shadows (Ashes #2) by Ilsa J. Bick (Egmont, September 25th 2012)

DIVERSE ENERGIES is an anthology of speculative fiction from some awesome authors like Cindy Pon and Malinda Lo, so i can't wait to read it. DEARLY, BELOVED is one I look forward to reading since I enjoyed DEARLY, DEPARTED last year and I am dubios about SHADOWS since me and ASHES didn't really get along amazingly well, but I still want to give it a shot.

I also got Samplers of The Archived by Victoria Schwab and Days of Blood and Shadow by Laini Taylor.


Earth Girl

I couldn't resist this. A good spacey futuristic that sounds a-ma-zing!

  6. Ooh, I want to read Earth Girl. I agree that it sounds really really good. Btw, I don't know if you'll see my comment to you on my blog, so wanted to mention it here. The e-galleys I got aren't in the main listings. To find them, go to the publishers page and click on Macmillan's Children's Group (or whatever their exact name is). You'll find the books listed there. :)

    Enjoy all of these, and Happy Reading!
