Letterbox Love all of the lovely, lovely books I’ve gotten in the post, bought and everything else. Summaries are taken from the cover, or Amazon/NetGalley/Goodreads in the case of e-books, unless otherwise stated. Hosted by Narratively Speaking.
Starring Kitty, Keris Stainton (e-proof)
From Goodreads: The series centres on a group of three friends who enter a film-making competition, with each book focusing on a different girl’s life, including first relationships, family life and friends. The first book in the series will be Starring Kitty, which Keris has been writing as part of NaNoWriMo and will focus on Kitty as she works out how she feels about another girl.
Thanks Keris! I’m going to try and squeeze this one in for LGBT Month, even though it’s not out until early June!
Come Back to Me, Mila Gray (e-proof)
From Sarah’s blog: Hot boy in uniform? Check. Super sexy summertime romance? Check. Heartbreak and loss? Check. Kissing and more? Check. Check. Check.
If you love Alex and Jack then you’ll love Kit and Riley – the guys from Sarah’s soon to be released New Adult book Come Back to Me (Pan Macmillan) penned under the name Mila Gray.
Not only is it set in Oceanside just like Hunting Lila but Kit and Riley are also Marines based at Pendleton. That’s where the similarities end however...there are no psys. But there’s way more steam...
Mila Gray is also known as Sarah Alderson and this is her first new adult novel which I found sitting in my inbox at the end of last week. I loved the Lila series so it was a lovely surprise, and so early! Thanks Sarah!
Midnight Crossroad, Charlaine Harris (e-proof)
From Charlaine Harris, the bestselling author who created Sookie Stackhouse, the world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, comes a new, darker world – populated by more strangers than friends. But then, that’s how the locals prefer it.
Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and Davy Road. It’s a pretty standard dried up Western town.
There’s a pawnshop (someone lives in the basement as is seen only at night). There’s a diner (people who are just passing through tend not to linger). And there’s a new resident Manfred Bernardo, who thinks he’s found the perfect place to work in private (and who has secrets of his own).
Stop at the one traffic light in town, and everything looks normal. Stay awhile, and learn the truth.
I really wasn’t fussed by this until Carly (Writing from the Tub) told me how awesome it is. She doesn’t really like paranormal stuff that was enough to make me request it! Thanks NetGalley and Gollancz!
No One Needs to Know, Amanda Grace (e-book)
Sometimes, the cost of love is too steep
Olivia’s twin brother, Liam, has been her best friend her whole life. But when he starts dating, Olivia is left feeling alone, so she tries to drive away Liam’s girlfriends in an effort to get her best friend back.
But she meets her match in Zoey, Liam’s latest fling. A call-it-like-she-sees-it kind of girl, Zoey sees right through Olivia’s tricks. What starts as verbal sparring between the two changes into something different, however, as they share their deepest insecurities and learn they have a lot in common. Olivia falls for Zoey, believing her brother could never get serious with her. But when Liam confesses he’s in love with Zoey, Olivia has to decide who deserves happiness more: her brother or herself?
I absolutely loved The Truth About You and Me so I’m really looking forward to this. Thanks NetGalley and Flux!
The Lemon Grove, Helen Walsh (e-book)
Each summer, Jenn and her husband Greg return to Deia, on Mallorca’s dramatic west coast. This year the arrival of Emma, Jenn’s stepdaughter, and her new boyfriend Nathan threatens to upset their equilibrium. Beautiful and reckless, Nathan stirs something unexpected in Jenn. As she is increasingly seduced by nathan’s youth and the promise of passion, the line between desire and obsession begins to blur. What follows is a highly-charged liason that puts lives and relationships in jeopardy. For Jenn, after this summer, nothing can ever be the same.
This sounds gorgeous and sulty and summery and I’m so excited! A £1.99 Kindle bargain that I’ve had my eye on for ages as it’s a pricey Tinder Press hardcover.
I also bought hardcover copies of Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor and If You Could be Mine by Sara Farizan for my shelves.
