Weekly Highlights; Pre-Christmas Edition

Posted on 22 December, 2013 by Faye - No Comments

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 it’s been a fair while since I’ve done one of these because I haven’t been posting daily for a while so there’s usually not much to highlight! This may be my last Weekly Highlights of the year, unless I get an awesome pile of books for Christmas that I want to show you!

As it’s been a while, here are just a few of the things you may have missed;

I haven’t written ANY reviews lately – this has made me sad to realise but hopefully on the few days I have off, I’ll write a few to go up!

I told you all ten things I am thankful for. Check out what I chose here.

I read some fantastic books this year and there are so many I’m looking forward to next year. To find out my top ten of 2013 and top five for 2014, click here.

I admitted to not particular enjoying this festive season but did mention what I did like and what books I’ll be reading to get in the right mood. Find out more about that here.

And finally, I signed up for Bout of Books! Check out all the info about the readathon, here.


Winter TBR Pile

Here are ten books I hope to read this winter! What are you planning to read?


Christmas Holidays

So I may not be the most festive person but I know that it’s nice to wish others a happy festive season and soo…

Happy Holidays!

May you all have a nice holiday break – if you get one!


Around the Blogosphere

On her blog, Lucy has spoken about how other people react when you mention that you read or blog. Read what she says and add your own thoughts, here.

Jamie has been talking about her plans for her blog next year. It’s interesting to see and I think it’s something that we all do as the year comes to a close. Have a look at this great post, here.

There’s a 2013 end of year survey (mine will be going up on the blog at some point this month), I found out about it from Becca’s post and just really liked her answers! Find the survey and her answers by clicking here.

Facebook are always changing their terms and conditions, this week Laura has spoken about them all and tells you how you can change what you see. Check it out here.

Have you ever thought about the books you rate? Do you ever wonder if you judge too harshly or too lightly? This week Hollie has spoken her thoughts on the subject. To read them and discuss this topic, go here.

It’s almost christmas, but are you still struggling to buy presents? Sophie has asked a handful of bloggers, publishers, and herself to tell her what their favourite book of the year is to give some suggestions of what books to buy for Christmas. Check out the three parts here, here, and here.


And there you have it, my Weekly Highlights!

I hope to visit all posts of this manner, so feel free to link to your own IMMs, Sunday Showcase, Sunday Posts, Letterbox Loves or whatever it is you do below!

what did you get this week? what cool blog posts did you stumble upon? what are you waiting to happen this week?
