Weekly Highlights; Anti-Bullying Week Edition

Posted on 24 November, 2013 by Faye - 1 Comment

weekly highlights

Weekly Highlights is a new feature here at A Daydreamer’s Thoughts and will be a post highlighting things that happened on and off the blog. It is inspired by The Story Sirens In My Mailbox, Books, Biscuit and Tea’s Showcase Sunday, Kimba Caffeinated’s Sunday Post, and the British Letterbox Love.

In the feature I won’t mention everything I received, nor every post I wrote during the week but will simply feature a selection of things I wish to spotlight a second time around.


Post Highlights

So I feel like I’m finally getting on track again with this blog! It may still take a little while before it all feels good again but I seem to have found at least a little motivation again, so yay! That being said, this is what happened on the blog this week.

I posted TWO reviews;
Control by Kim Curran (FOUR HEARTS)
The Savages by Matt Whyman (FOUR HEARTS)

I also posted an advert for a new member of Bookish Brits. To add your name to the pile, go here

And finally, I also let you know about two books that I’m really looking forward to here.

Anti-Bullying Week

So you may or may not know but this week was Anti-Bullying Week and while I didn’t post anything on my blog for it, the Bookish Brits team have all been creating videos throughout the week (and continuing on next week) about bullying. You can see them all here.

And if you just want to see mine. I spoke about the themes of bullying in Speechless by Hannah Harrington and you can watch it below.
