Letterbox Love #4

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.

It's been a bumper crop of books over the past couple of weeks. I decided to take a picture of my newpaperbacks  sitting outside to celebrate the lovely weather! There have been lots of new releases and I've also been lucky enough to receive lots of books through from publishers and from NetGalley. So here goes...

From the Random House Blogger Brunch I received Rolling Dice by Beth Reekles, Cross my Heart by Carmen Reid and Teardrop by Lauren Kate. Thanks to Random House for all these fabulous titles.

I was lucky enough to receive a copy of The Girl Under The Olive Tree by Leah Flemming in the post this week, I am also going to have an exclusive extract from that for you as part of the blog tour for this novel. (Pictured in my summer stack above...)

I was also lucky enough to receive review copies of Lying To meet You by Anna Garner and The Mistake by Emma Lousie Dagnall

I had a couple of good finds in a second hand bookshop this week, New Husband, Missing by Polly Williams and One Thing Led To Another by Katy Regan, I am looking forward to fitting these in at some point. You can see these in my stack at the top of the page!

I also bought Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher, Wonder by R.J. Palacio, and 3 new releases out this week-Killer Queens by Rebecca Chance, It's Raining Men by Milly Johnson and Me & You by Claudia Carroll.

On netgalley this week I got Coco's Secret by Niamh Green, Mad about You by Sinaed Moriarty, The Name on Your Wrist by Helen Hiorns, Tempting Fate by Jane Green and Lockwood and Co. by Jonathan Stroud.

I was also VERY bad and downloaded Cupcakes at Carringtons by Alexandra Brown, Me and Mr Jones by Lucy Diamond, April Showers by Karli Perin, The Sea Sistrs by Lucy Clarke, Single Woman Seeks Revenge, Baby be Mine by Paige Toon and Invitation to Die by Helen Smith. I went a bit crazy I know but I wasn't well and this helped cheer me up... (That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!)

Let me know if you want to hear any more about any of the books and look out for their reviews soon...
