Received for Review

Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini
Dear Daughter by Elizabeth Little (Netgalley)

A very nice surprise arrived in my mailbox this week in the form of Josephine Angelini's Trial By Fire (In case of confusion, this is the UK cover!) Josie's accompanying letter in which she talks about her inspirations for the book certainly piqued my interest for this one!

Dear Daughter by Elizabeth Little has been on my radar for a QUITE A WHILE so when I spotted it on Netgalley I pounced! This sounds like a really great psychological thriller and I cannot wait to get started!

Breakable by Tammara Webber
Fall From India Place by Samantha Young
Out Of Control by Sarah Alderson
Come Back To Me by Mila Gray


Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson
The One by Kiera Cass

I read Since You've Been Gone this week and while I liked it (in the end) I didn't love it like I've loved Matson's previous novels. This was slow to get going and I found the MC difficult to warm to. Full review coming soon!


Current Read: Hexed by Michelle Krys.

That's it for this week! Leave your thoughts & links in comments!

    Great selection of books this week! Hope you enjoy Hexed by the way - I did :D

  2. Thanks, Jenny! I've only read a few chapters of Hexed but I already have a good feeling! :)

  3. I love reading everyone's mailbox post because there are so many great books that I didn't know about. Enjoy

  4. Been hearing mixed things about Morgan Matson book, either you like it or don't. I see we both got Trial by Fire.

    Books of Love

  5. Yeah, I usually LOVE her books - but not so much with this one.

  6. I was torn between ordering a hardback of Since You've Been Gone or the Kindle. I eventually went with the Kindle because I was worried I wasn't going to love it - so it is good to hear that you weren't a huge fan of it ;)

    Enjoy your haul, hun!

  7. Ohh, I have concerns about Since You've Been Gone, too. Because I really loved Morgan's previous books and want to like her third just as much. Excited to read Sarah Alderson's Out Of Control!

  8. I can't wait to read The One! I have to see how the series ends. Enjoy your new books!

  9. Most people seem to love Since You've Been Gone. It is good and it finishes strong -it's just SO SLOW to start!

  10. Me too. It's such a fun series! :)

  11. I can't wait to read Trial by Fire and The One. I am so close to buying The One right now, but I keep thinking about saving up for house and stopping myself. It'll happen soon. I hope Hexed is good! I can't wait to read the review :)

  12. This is a great haul Leanna, sorry you weren't able to enjoy Since You've been Gone as much as you'd hoped, but I hope you enjoy the rest of your books!

  13. I really enjoyed Breakable. More than what I thought after seeing some mixed reviews. I loved getting Lucas' back story even if it did involve his high school loves. I have Fall From India Place as well, and I have to say I'm a little nervous about it. I have guess at what happened with Hannah in the past, but we'll see. Enjoy your books! :)

    Trial By Fire! Excited for that one! I got The One this week, too. I can't wait to read Hexed, I hope you're enjoying it!

  15. Nice haul! I hope you enjoy your new books! I also purchased Since Youve Been Gone and I got it personalized!

    Awesome books, Leanna! i can't wait to hear your thoughts on Out of Control…definitely interested in that one. I also have Trial by Fire (yay!) and The One. I'm hoping to finish Since You've Been Gone tomorrow. I am definitely not loving it like I thought I would. :(

  17. I have Out of Control, but haven't read it yet. It sounds really interesting, though. I love the cover for The One, but have not read the first book in that series. Great haul and happy reading!

  18. Ooh, I got an eARC, but I'm pretty sure there's a physical one waiting at my house too. The pictures I've seen of the packaging are GORGEOUS! And it sounds so good! I've heard people raving about Since You've Been Gone that I'm going to have to try it out. :)

  19. Glad to hear that Breakable is a good read. I wasn't sure if reading from Lucas' POV would add all that much to the story. I love Samantha Young's books! Not sure what happened to Hannah in the past but hope it was nothing too bad. I've always liked her character!

  20. Same here. I liked it in the end but didn't enjoy it as much as her previous books.

  21. The Selection is a fun series. Very light and fluffy!
