Letterbox Love is a way to give all of the books I receive for review some exposure. Summaries are taken from the cover, or Amazon/NetGalley/Goodreads in the case of e-books, unless otherwise stated. All of the books are in exchange for an honest review.
My Favourite Manson Girl, Alison Umminger (e-proof)
Anna has had a miserable year. Everything feels wrong with her life. And rather than stay and face the mess, she steals a credit card and books herself a seat on the first flight out of town to Los Angeles, to crash with her sister. But soon after she lands, cold reality soon dawns on her: Hollywood isn’t the escape she needs. She is trapped in a town full of lost souls and wannabees, with no friends, no cash and no return ticket.
When she's offered a job researching the murderous Manson girls for a dubious film, she reluctantly accepts – she needs the money. But soon enough, among the fake smiles and glitter-fuelled parties, things turn from strange, to dark, to dangerous.
This is not going to be the summer Anna has in mind.
My Favourite Manson Girl is a chilling story about being young, lost and female. This is a story about how girls disappear.
Doesn’t this sound brilliantly creepy?! Thanks NetGalley and Atom!
Notes on Being Teenage, Rosalind Jana (proof)
Rosalind Jana: blogger, writer, feminist and model, she’s crammed a lot into her 20-odd years.
Rooted in her own experiences, Notes on Being Teenage is a warm, wise, witty book about growing up and into yourself, covering aspects of teenhood from mental health and bullying to style and blogging.
Stories, advice and wisdom from teenagers are also included, along with interviews with inspirational people like Louise O’Neill, Juno Dawson and the founders of The Vagenda.
Totally intrigued, though I'm not 100% how I’ll get on with it. Thanks Books with Bite!
Songs About a Girl, Chris Russell (proof)
When aspiring photographer Charlie Bloom receives the invitation of her dreams – to take backstage photos for chart-topping boyband Fire&Lights – it’s an offer she can't refuse.
Overnight she is launched into a world of fame, paparazzi and backstage bickering – caught between the dark charms of the band’s lead singer Gabriel West, and boy-next-door bandmate Olly Samson.
But then Charlie stumbles upon a spine-tingling truth: all the songs Gabriel has written for Fire&Lights debut album are, impossibly, linked to her and her past.
What does he want with Charlie?
What's really going on?
I’m SO in love with this cover! Thanks again Books with Bite!
