Letterbox Love (12)

Britain at it's best, bringing you it's own version of IMM! All the books that came through my letterbox thanks to publishers and Royal Mail! Thank you Mr Postman for not squashing my books.  
 I was over the moon to get   a box full of Kate Cann delights to read from Scholastic. Kate Cann has been on my list of authors to read for a long time and I am hoping to get to these lovelies soon.

Witch Crag is the new novel from Kate Cann, a dystopian novel that will appeal to the fans of The Hunger Games. It is published on the 4th of October, alongside new editions  of Leaving Poppy, Possessed and Fire.  Thank you Scholastic for such fabulous books.
 On The Day I Died by Candace Fleming is published on the 27th September and consisted of thirteen stories from the grave... Published by Random House Children's Books.
Also published by an imprint of Random House Children's Books - Corgi - Mystic City with it stunning cover. An epic Romeo and Juliet style tale of a magical city divided. Published on the 11th October.  Thank you Random House Children's Books for both books.
Now Orion Children's Books know how much I love Sally Gardner, so I was thrilled when they sent me Operation Bunny. Illustrated by David Roberts, the book is aimed at the 8 + market and will be published on the 4th of October. It is the first book in the series of The Fairy Detective Agency! Thank you Orion's Children's Books.
School of Fear: Class Is Not Dismissed! By Gitty Daneshavari is the funny sequel to School of Fear and will be published by Atom on the 4th of October. Thank you Atom!
Secrets and Sapphires by Leila Rasheed is set in 1910 and is described as a Downton Abbeyish book! Yes I made that word up and I don't care! This is the first in the series and will be published in January 2013 by Hot Key Books. Thank you Hot Key Books.
The Obsidian Mirror by Catherine Fisher is the renowned author's latest book. It will be the first in a series called Chronoptika and will be published by Hodder Children's Books in October. Thank you Hodder Children's Books.
Breathe by Sarah Crossan will be published by Bloomsbury on the 11th October. Sarah has been described as exciting new voice in young adult fiction. Her debut book, The Weight of Water was published in January to high acclaim. 
Also from Bloomsbury book, another stunning cover - Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black which can be seen in the bottom right hand corner of the picture. Described as Black Swan meets Gossip Girl, this is the first book in a new series and will be published on the 14th of February 2013 - thank you Bloomsbury for both of these books. 
Ruthless by Sara Shepard is the tenth book in the Pretty Little Liars series which is now a major TV show around the world. This will be published on the 4th of October  by Atom. Thank you Atom!
The Other Half of Me by Morgan McCarthy will be published in paperback on the 8th November by Headline. When it was published in hardback earlier this year it received a huge amount of praise. Thank you Headline.
The last two books were kindly sent to me by Indigo, an imprint of Orion Children's Books and will both be published on the 4th of October. The Iron Jackal is the third book in the action packed, wise-cracking series by Chris Wooding. Red Glove by Holly Black is the second book in the sensational Curse Workers trilogy and has been on my wish list for ages. Seriously if you haven't read a book by Holly Black you are missing out. Thank you Indigo.

The books received in this Letterbox Love were received over a period of two weeks and I  didn't get time to write a post last week. I hope you all received fabulous goodies in the post too.
