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 been pretty good of late with not buying or downloading books. I did return something to the library this week and requested a book which they haven't got in yet. Whilst I was there I visited he sale books section where the books are 5p and picked up a copy of The Finkler Question by Howard Jacobson. I've been looking at this book for a long time, so when I saw it sitting there for 5p, how could I turn it down?
I also received some gorgeous books as presents from the states. I'm very very lucky because they're both special editions. They are Wonder by RJ Palacio and The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Although I've read both of these, I will be reading them again because of the lovely new copies I have!
I got some awesome book post this week as well, including chocolate! I received The Atlas Of Us by Tracy Buchanan. Thank you to Avon for that.
I also won a giveaway from Fiona at eventide reads' book tube channel. I can't wait to start reading Half Bad by Sally Green EVERYBODY'S been talking about it!
Laura Dockrill, author of Darcy Burdock came to visit my school this week & I got a copy of her second Book Hi So Much, which I also got signed!
