Letterbox Love is a new meme hosted by Lynsey @ Narratively Speaking for UK based book bloggers to showcase the books that they’ve received each week.

This week my mailbox has been filled half and half with books I've bought and books I've kindly received from publishers. I have to admit, the books I bought on the left are to prepare for the Foyles' Summer Scream event (see below). I really want to make sure I've read books by most of the authors if I'm going to go to it!


Unrest by Michelle Harrison (bought).

The Wood Queen by Karen Mahoney (bought).
I met Karen at a writers event a few years back, before she was published. She was so lovely, and it was her talk that persuaded me to set up my own blog. Thanks Karen!

The Corpse-Rat King by Lee Battersby (kindly given by Angry Robot).

Mockingbird by Chuck Wendig (kindly given by Angry Robot).
This is the second in the Miriam Black series. I loved Blackbirds, and would absolutely recommend reading it!

Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs (kindly given by Templar).


Roll up! Roll up! Ladies and Gentleman, Boys and Girls, for one day only Foyles will once again be hosting a circus of literary delights to spook even the bravest amongst you. Come and meet authors Michelle Harrison, Zoe Marriott, L.A.Weatherly, Karen Mahoney, Laura Powell, Ruth Warburton plus many more.

4th August 2012, 2pm - 6pm, Foyles Charing Cross Road - Free Event

2-3pm: Panel - Michelle Harrison, Zoe Marriott, L.A.Weatherly and Karen Mahoney
4:30-5:30: Panel - Laura Powell, Ruth Warburton and authors TBC

Unrest is fantastic and I really love the look of Sweet Venom. Enjoy!

Oh I'll have to get Mockingbird, if only for the matching cover but I do want to find out what happens to Miriam next!

I've heard so much goodness about Unrest! Great book haul, enjoy all your reads! :)

Unrest looks really good! I've heard great things about Sweet Venom so I hope it'll be a great read :)

Wowza! Excellent haul! Wendig has kind of been all up in my face these past few weeks (not him personally, and not literally) but Blackbirds has suddenly appeared everywhere. I should get on this.

I'm wondering if you would be interested in doing a website link exchange? I see your website: http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=4719231270858062448&postID=5761888186570536760 and my website are centered around the same subject matter. I'd really like to swap links or perhaps guest author a write-up
for you. Thank you.

Wow that was odd. I just wrote an really long comment
