Letterbox Love (#14)


Letterbox Love is a new weekly meme hosted by narratively speaking. The UK book bloggers have joined together and made a British version of IMM, and here it is. I'm proud to be a UK book blogger so this seemed like an excellent new meme to participate in.

Last Saturday I went to the Summer Scream event at Foyles, where seven authors did two panels and then a signing. I managed to get all my books signed and spoke to the authors and fellow bloggers. This post will contain the books i bought. There is a more in depth post about that here: Summer Scream Event Report.

Also last week my Internet had a melt down so i couldn't post a letterbox love so this is two weeks worth of books.

Here's what I got Last week:
The book links will take you to the book's Goodreads page.
Won:

-Cudweed in Outer Space By Marcus Sedgwick
-Fright Forest By Marcus Sedgwick
All of these are signed too! I cannot wait to read them!

This is one of them signed!

For Review: 

Bought:

-Daughter Of the Flames By Zoe Marriott



Swag:

All the Swag from the Summer Scream Event!
This week's books:

Bought:



Won/For Review:

Here's the weekly wrap up but it's obviously two weeks worth!
