weekly highlights
Weekly Highlights is a feature here at A Daydreamer’s Thoughts where I highlight some of the blog posts I’ve found throughout the week!

Lifestyle Posts

This week Gracie has written a fantasticly relatable post on meeting famous people, escpecially authors. You can read the great post here.

A post that really struck me this week was this one by Fii. She talks about how important keeping creative subjects in the curriculum is! I agree with everything she says!

I stumbled across a great post by Michael this week on twitter. He talks about how online friendships ARE just as valid as other friendships. I happen to agree completely. Read the post here.

Are you, like myself, a wearer of glasses? If so you should definitely check out this post by Ms Mistry, I nodded along to everything. And hey, if you don’t wear glasses, maybe you’ll learn something new about your glass-wearing comrades!

This week I was fortunate enough to find this post by Grace explaining why she loves being an illustrator! It’s very informative and intriguing!

I think this post by Jenna is a really great one about surviving university with mental health and ways in which to deal with it all.

With valentine’s day around the corner, this week Jemma has written a post about the 8 things she does and doesn’t miss about dating. You can read the post here.

Fitness Posts

This week Becki has written a great post about how her running medals are more than bits of metal. You can read the post here, and I have to admit that I agree with all she said! While I don’t run as much anymore, every single point meant something to me.

Are you running a Marathon this year? Or thinking about it? Then you should definitely check out this post but Helen. It’s all about the Marathon Mindset and it is full of great advice.

Have you thought about sleep and exercise? In this post, Charlie discusses how sleep can impact your exercise performance. A very interesting and informative read!

Blogging Posts

As with everything there are good things and bad things about blogging and this week I found this post from Nic detailing five of the worst things about blogging. It’s a great read!

This post is one I found via Twitter and instantly loved. It’s not necessarily a blogging post but it also is. In this post Emma talks about how she fits within the blogging world and how she just blogs as herself. I thought it was a great read and insist you read it!

Book Posts

This week Jess has written a great post with some of her favourite swoon-worthy scenes in books! See which scenes she chose here!

You absolutely MUST check out this post by Renae. She’s highlighted six books by authors of colour that she’s looking forward to reading this year!

I was gutted that I was unable to go to Melinda Salisbury’s launch party this week, so I devoured this wrap-up post written by the lovely Gracie!

I’ve been meaning to read Beautiful Broken Things for far too long now as I have heard SO MANY good things about it and it sounds like a very “me” read. Here‘s just another fab review from Lucy about why I should be reading it.

Are you looking for some new books to read in February? Then why not read this post by Lucy where she tells you which books she thinks you should be getting your hands on this month!

Alongside Lucy’s post, you can also check out what Viv is really excited to read in this post.

This week I came across this post by Brittany and thought it seemed very helpful. It’s all about using Goodreads successfully as a blogger!

The lovely Alwyn Hamilton was on MuggleNet with an interview. You can read the great interview here.

I saw this post stumble on to my twitter feed yesterday and I simply HAD to share it. 6 Things To Never Say to a Librarian. I agree with them all!

Lastly I MUST highlight this GREAT new feature on Teens on Moon Lane written by the great Jim. It’s the six degrees of separation feature! Find out more about it, see the first book it’s starting with and then make your own from this post!
