Letterbox Love [1]

You might be wondering, "What IS Letterbox Love???" Well, it's a new , UK, drama-free equivalent of IMM thought up by several UK bloggers, still in its developing stages. I personally never took part in any memes in which I showcased my book hauls but with the emergence of this new meme, I thought, 'Why not? I should take part and show some love for, not only letterboxes, but the country I live in!'
I'm not sure how frequently I'll want to post these things, but I think I might start off with doing them every month (I might change my mind, though! I guess it depends on how many books I get...) 
Anyway, for my first Letterbox Love post, I'm going to showcase all the books I got this month. (As a matter of fact, only one of them actually came through my letterbox, but you know, never mind...)

OKAY I AM REALLY ANNOYED because I did this post TWO nights ago and I THOUGHT I had published it but I log in today and...clearly I was mistaken! And not only has it not been published but the rest of my post hasn't even saved!!! GRRRR! I don't have the time to put all the pictures and stuff in again now so I'm just going to quickly list all the books that were here before and move on with my life before I start getting too annoyed with Blogger!


Birthmarked by Caragh O' Brien (I love this book so much I had to go out and buy myself a copy of my own!)
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
The Pig That Wants to Be Eaten (and 99 other thought experiments) by Julian Baggini (random, I know, but I'm kinda interested in psychology and philosophy and whatnot, so decided to get this when I saw it in a charity shop.)

Whoah! That's quite a lot of books! You know, on second thoughts, maybe I'll do these Letterbox Love posts more often than once every month! 
So, did you guys get anything nice through your letterbox (or not through your letterbox) ? :)


  1. Oh I always thought about doing IMM but I didn't because I don't get books every week. I might start doing this once a month like you though :)
    You certainly have got a lot of books this month, I hope you enjoy them all and I'm looking forward to reading your reviews!

    1. Same! I always thought about doing IMM but couldn't because I didn't really always get books every week.
      Thank you :)

  2. Wow, you got a lot of books this month! :) I hope you like all of them! :)

  3. This new meme sounds fun, will have to participate soon! Great books this week: so jealous you got Adorkable, it looks so good! Enjoy Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale, it is by far the most amazing book I have ever read... and as for Lord of the Flies - it's quite scary and creepy, and I had to read it in my English class :(

  4. Yay! Lots of books :) Hope you enjoy them all and thanks for stopping by!

  5. Ohh I really want to read Adorkable!! Happy reading!
