Letterbox Love (#32)

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.

Hey guys! This is a two week edition as I didn't have time to post last week. The upcoming week on the blog will be jam packed with blog tours and reviews. Be sure to check back next week! Remember you can also enter to win a copy of The Nightmare Affair By Mindee Arnett, I will post the link below. 

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

For Review:
Received this for review from Harper Collins. Thank you! 

I have heard so much about this book and thought it was time to give it a go! 

I've been dying to read this, I'm such a huge fan of the series and this is the finale!

I won this from Gollancz and I cannot wait to read it. It's a retelling of Snow White by the incredible Sarah Pinborough. 

Thank you to Bloomsbury for these and the rest of the book swag!

  1. Absolutely amazing haul! So many great books! GoT cover looks so pretty! Just, wow :D I have no other words. A little jealous. I do have a lot of these on my Kindle though.

    Thanks for stopping by, happy reading!

  2. Wow! You got some fantastic books this week :D I got The Disgrace of Kitty Grey last week but got denied for Anthen for Jackson Dawes which was odd haha seeing as they were from the same publisher, but looking forward to what you think of it :) Happy reading!

  3. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is such a good book and really spooky. I'm currently awaiting the second book and am trying to patiently wait for it.
    The Disgrace of Kitty Grey looks so good and is waiting on my Kindle to be read. I love Mary Hooper's books so much so hopefully it won't disappoint.

  7. Hey, Annabelle! This is a massive haul. The only book I've read though, is Mara Dyer. I enjoyed it, but I wasn't emotionally invested into the characters.
