Letterbox Love #5

Letterbox Love is a new weekly meme, hosted by Narratively Speaking. It's a great way of sharing what books you receive every week, and I'm delighted to be taking part!

These are all the books I've got since the 11th June :) so it's a big LL! I didn't actually get any books this week, but I got tons before now, and never got round to doing an LL before I went on holidays, so I'm doing  a massive one now :) Here are all of my books!

For review:

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
I am reading this now for a blog tour and am quite enjoying it, expect a review soon :)

The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder (Proof copy)
OMG thisbookissounbelievablyamazing. Review soon :) and LOOK at that cover guys :D

Velvet by Mary Hooper
As you all probably know by now, I'm not a big fan of historical fiction, but this sounds interesting, and I'm looking forward to starting it :)

Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs 
I've heard this is good, but I'm a little scared to start reading looks quite creepy! I hope I like it anyway :)

The awesome Diane Messidoro, author of How To Keep a Boy As a Pet, sent me some signed book marks and postcards, cos she's so awesome :D I put one of the bookmarks into the photo :)


Brothers To The Death by Darren Shan
I've already read and loved this, it's a great end to a great series :)

Day One by Gill Partridge
I had never heard of this before I found it in the leave a book -take a book thing in the campsite I was staying in. It looks good I suppose :)

Pretty Bad Things by C.J. Skuse
I've heard this author and this book is brilliant, and it was only two euro so I couldn't resist :)

Star Crossed Summer by Coleen Murtagh Paratore
This series is way more meaningful and deep than the covers suggest. I loved this book so much :) I would really recommend it!


Looking For Alaska by John Green
I was so happy to win this, I read and LOVED The Fault I Our Stars recently, and I have just wanted to read every John Green book since then :) Thank you so much Ria from The Beacoup Review for holding the giveaway I won his in!


Dads, Geeks and Blue Haired Freaks
It was my birthday recently and my family got me this book (along with some other stuff). I was so happy! I think this looks brilliant, I can't wait to read it!


The Poison Garden by Sarah Singleton
The Spooks Apprentice by Joseph Delaney
These books both look like fun MG fantasies and I'm looking forward to getting started :)


A friend of mine who's older than me gave me loads of her old books...yay!

Airhead by Meg Cabot
Already read and loved! A bit strange, but fantastic! I must read more of this series soon though, I'm dying to know what happens :)

Numbers by Rachel Ward 
Muddle Earth by Paul Stuart
Zelah Green, Queen of Clean by Vanessa Curtis 
Love Lessons by Jacqueline Wilson
These books all look fab, I can't wait to get started! I'm so excited for all of them :)

The Princess Diaries: Ten out of Ten
Third Time Lucky
Give Me Five
After Eight by Meg Cabot
I really like this series, I've read the first three, so I'll  have to get the others from the library soon!

Jinx by Meg Cabot
I just finished this today, it was brilliant! I love Meg Cabot :)

Phew! So that's all of my books!

What did you get in your letterbox?


  1. Wow! That is an awesome haul!Enjoy all your books! :)

  2. Awesome books!
    I read Seraphine a while ago but it just wasn't for me - I hope you enjoy it much more than I did! And I've read a Spooks book before and LOVED it! It was the tenth book in the series and I'm really hoping to read all the rest! :D

  3. Great books this week! I really want to read Seraphina. I've read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and it was definitely creepy, but not too scary so you should be okay!

  4. Wow! Great books! Miss Peregrine is quite good, but the pictures are SO creepy... I'm so jealous of Looking For Alaska, I need to read a John Green book! Numbers, Princess Diaries, and Jinx are all amazing. Happy reading! :) xx

  5. Cliona, you lucky thing! Your haul is absolutely AMAZING! I received Miss Peregrine a while back too but I'm not sure what I think of it - the photos are sooooo creepy! The Probability of Miracles sounds really awesome - I adore the cover <3 Numbers is really thrilling, I hope you love it! Love Lessons and Zelah Green, Queen of Teen are both really good too and The Princess Diaries books are really witty and funny!

    Enjoy them all, Cliona <3

  6. What a brilliant haul! Looking For Alaska is one of my favourite books ever, as is the Princess Diaries series. Enjoy reading them :)


  7. Ah, Looking for Alaska is good, it was the first John Green book I read and a good introduction to his writing. The Fault in Our Stars has got to be one of the best books I have ever read.

    The Princess Diaries! I grew up reading them, they are hilarious. Teen Idol is another good stand-alone book by Meg Cabot :)

  8. The Probability of Miracles is SO pretty! Ahhh! Super jealous you got that! Yay, I hope you enjoy Looking for Alaska-- John Green is just... ASDFGHJKL.

    Omg, look at all those books! Zelah Green is brilliant, I read that a couple of years ago [or maybe last year...] and loved it. Enjoy these AMAZING books, Cliona.(:

  9. I looooved Seraphina! One of my favourites of the year. And Pretty Bad Things looks great, I have it on my TBR. Also adore The Princess Diaries! Happy reading :).

  10. Amazing books!! :)

    The Probability of Miracles cover is brilliant!! :) And it sounds amazing, I'm really glad you enjoyed it! :) I've seen the trailer for Seraphina and it looks really good! I received Miss Peregrines home for Peculiar Children and the pictures are so creepy...I'm sought of scared to start reading it! But it does look really interesting. :)

    I NEED TO READ A JOHN GREEN BOOK!! Looking for Alaska looks brilliant! And I love the cover! ;)

    I hope you enjoy all of your awesome books!,
    Happy reading!,
    Beth xx
