Letterbox Love (#19)

Letterbox Love is a 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.
This week is a two week edition as I was very busy last week! I got lots of goodies to share with you all though!
Here's what I got this week:
The book links will take you to the book's Goodreads page.
All of these I've been waiting to read and I went on a book buying spree and got them all at once! Except the Casual Vacancy which I bought yesterday!
Signed Copy!
For Review:
Thanks to Ian at Bloomsbury!
Thank you Mira ink for these!
Thanks to Bloomsbury!
Thanks to Genn at Gollancz
Huge thanks to Hodder for this! It's huge!
