Letterbox Love (sort of!)

Hello! I just wanted to write very quickly about something I've been thinking about lately.  And that is In My Mailbox type posts.  I used to write them regularly, but they took up a lot of my time.  I dropped them to every other week and then stopped doing them altogether. 

But! I do still enjoy sharing the books that I acquire via whatever reason.  And for that, if you are so interested, you can 'LIKE' the Fluttering Butterflies Facebook page, and I shall be uploading photos of all the shiny new books that come into my possession.  A bit like these... This is the last time (maybe) that I'll be sharing these here on the blog. Everything else will go to FB page!



Lovely finished hardback copies of The Spindlers by Lauren Oliver, The Edge of Nowhere by Elizabeth George (the book I'm reading at the moment!), and The Diviners by Libba Bray.



The left pile was an Amazon order: Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols, Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma, Perfect Escape by Jennifer Brown, Shine by Lauren Myracle, Sometimes It Happens by Lauren Barnholdt, Shine by Jeri Smith-Ready, and So Much Closer by Susane Colasanti (already read!). 

The right pile is a combination of books sent via publishers and also a giveaway win, sent by Keris Stainton, plus a book gifted by Jim from YaYeahYeahWolf Pact by Melissa de la Cruz, Defiance by CJ Redwine, The Alchemy of Forever by Avery Williams, He's After Me by Chris Higgins, The Haunting Ground by Cliff McNish, 0.4 by Mike Lancaster, Shadows on the Moon by Zoe Marriott, and Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs (already read!).  Four of those books are signed by the author!


These books also arrived! Wolf Princess by Cathryn Constable and Zombies Don't Cry by Rusty Fischer.  An exciting bunch of books, all of them!

    1. Thanks Cliona! I keep putting off The Spindlers because it's younger than I'd normally read but I want to get to it soonish as well because it's by Lauren Oliver!

  7. Good idea. I've let Letterbox Love lapse and think I probably won't do another one. Like you said, it takes up so much time. I might just pop over to find you on FB though :)

    1. Excellent, glad to hear it :)

      I was quite happy spending on time on these sort of posts before, but then I hit my blogging slump and just had to cut everything that was too time-consuming! Won't look back now!

  8. Ah so many pretties! I am very jealous of both 'Defiance' and 'The Diviners'! I keep refreshing amazon in the hopes they'll release them early!...
