Letterbox Love #1

Welcome to Letterbox Love, this is a UK meme, hosted by the lovely Lynsey at Narratively Speaking and inspired by The Story Siren's In My Mailbox. This post is a means by which to highlight the books we get in the post and beyond, and especially to bring attention to those books which may be sat on our shelves for a little while yet that we love all the same.

I've not done a letterbox love before but I thought as I was sent some lovely book post last week I would catch myself up and give it a go this week. I don't often get very much book post but this week I was sent a parcel by Amanda at Onemorepage and was also sent a couple of books from authors that I thought I would share with you...

Losing it by Cora Carmack and The Wishlist by Jane Costello. Amanda from Onemorepage posted me these and I'm very excited about reading and reviewing!

Kept by Elle Field. The author sent me an ebook for review and also agreed to do an interview with me to go alongside the review. Look out for that next week...

Lucky Star by Josh Evans. This was another one sent to me on ebook. I'm part of the blog tour for this one. My review of this interesting looking novella will be up on 20th June. Here's the synopsis that was sent with it: Star leaves the city for nowhere, she just needed to get out. Along the way she found a new circus to join, a collective of rock n roll royalty, the coolest music scene in the world up there in the Joshua Tree....

Waiting on the sidelines by Ginger Scott. This was another ebook that was sent me me for review. It looks like something quite different as well, so I look forward to reading and reviewing that! Here's the synopsis for you...
Nolan Lennox had things figured out. Named after a baseball legend, she enjoyed being the Tomboy, her closet filled with her brother’s hand-me-downs, cut-off jeans and soccer shorts. But when her first trip to high school results in a broken heart from the first boy to ever make her heart flutter and cruel words from an older girl she once thought a family friend, Nolan starts to question the very person she thought she was and wonders if her humble upbringing can compete with the afforded luxuries of her privileged peers.

Throughout the next four years, Nolan struggles to maintain herself throughout her path of discovery, learning just how cruel teenagers can be through the pressures of underage drinking, sexuality and class. And despite how life seems to continue to work against her, she still manages to listen to her heart, falling deeper and deeper for the guy the entire town adores, even if he only sees her as a friend. Can Nolan strike a compromise between her own integrity and the boy she loves? And can she make him notice her before it’s too late?

Reed Johnson came to Coolidge High School with a lot of fanfare. The son of a hometown football legend and the brother of a local football hero, Reed wore all the pressures of carrying a town without hope into the spotlight. Thankfully, he had the talent to back it up. But when he meets a girl who makes him think twice about exactly what being a hero means, he starts to wonder if following in his brother’s footsteps might be all wrong. 

I look forward to posting my thoughts on all of these books and thanks to everyone that sent me them. I'm a very lucky blogger this week!
