Letterbox Love 4



This British meme allows us to discuss books arriving through our letterboxes (or Kindle whispernet of course ...) every week or so. It came out of a Twitter conversation and is hosted by Lynsey at Narratively Speaking. All links will take you to Amazon UK.


Review Copies:


A Witch in Love by Ruth Warburton from Hodder
The Testament of Jessie Lamb by Jane Rogers from Canongate (via NetGalley)
Katya's World by Jonathan L Howard from Strange Chemistry

Well, these are quite different from one another, and each intriguing in its own way: a witchy YA romance, a dystopian focused on women and childbirth, and a YA sci-fi set in a colony world that is entirely sea. I've just read A Witch in Winter to get ready for the second in the trilogy and I loved it, so I'm expecting good things!

Won/gifted:


Willard Price: Leopard Adventure by Anthony McGowan from Puffin via Twitter comp

I loved the Willard Price Adventure series as a kid and was very excited to hear the series has been reinvented for contemporary kids - and so much more excited to win a copy in a Twitter competition! The trailer looks great too:



Purchased:


Witchstruck by Victoria Lamb (my review here)
The Assassin and the Pirate Lord: A Throne of Glass Novella by Sarah J Maas (my review here)
The Assassin and the Desert by Sarah J Maas (my review here)
The Assassin and the Underworld by Sarah J Maas (my review here)


The three Assassin novellas are all prequels to the novel Throne of Glass, and Witchstruck is the first in a fab new historical paranormal series.
