Letterbox Love (#1)

I'm sure you're all aware by know about the drama surrounding a certain US book blogger. Therefore i stopped participating in In My Mailbox because of the seriousness of what she did wrong. I've been looking for a replacement and stumbled across this this morning. Letterbox Love is a new weekly meme hosted by narratively speaking. The UK book bloggers have joined together and made a british version, and here it is. I'm proud to be a UK book blogger so this seemed like an excellent new meme to participate in.

Here's more description about Letterbox love from narratively speaking:  Letterbox Love is a way for us to share the books that come through our letterbox, galleys and e books (through our electronic letterbox - see what I did there?!) and any other bookish goodies that we want to tell you about. Letterbox Love is intended to showcase upcoming books and build up some excitement for them as well as let you know what is available out there. It is not about competing with other bloggers or boasting of any kind (c'mon, we're British and we don't do drama!)
So without further ado here's what i got in the past two weeks where I've mostly been offline. It's a gorgeous stack of books!

-An Act Of Love By Alan Gibbons 
 -The Forest Of Hands and Teeth By Carrie Ryan
