Weekly Highlights; Slow Week Edition

Posted on 31 March, 2013 by Faye - 4 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, this week has been a very slow week for me. I have been incredibly busy the last few weeks and it meant that I barely had time to post which has, effectively, caused me to burn out. Thus, on monday I posted a semi-hiatus. The post can be found in full here. But it means that for the next few weeks my posting will be sporadic and slow but I’m still around!


Blogger Spotlight

Sophie wrote a great guest post for me about the top YA contemporary books she’s looking forward to this year. You can read all of her choices, as well as some great ones she’s already this year by clicking here

An e-mail has been sent and another winner will be picked if they don’t respond in 72 hours


Around the Blogosphere

Andye from Reading Teen has become hooked on reading ebooks when she never thought she would. Find out why and add your own thoughts on ebooks by clicking here

Everyone blogs differently, but how do you control blog integrity? Allison from the Cheap Reader discussed this here. Go and have your say!

After recieving a negative, and quite frankly hurtful, comment, Laura from Bookish Treasures has written a post about whether anyone can write reviews. To find out more on what she means and to have your say, click here

As readers we all buy books, it would be hard to read if we didn’t! But what makes you buy the particular books? Gaby from Queen Ella Bee Reads has told us all why here, so why not see if her reasons coincide with yours!


Letterbox Love

This has been a fairly slow week for me on all parts but it’s probably about time that I slowed down anyway! I got just two new books this week.

Noble Conflict; Oh my am I excited to read this one! It has been all hush hush for ages but having found out about due to the proof, I am sooo excited for it! Thank you so much to Random House for this proof copy.

Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor; I have been itching to get my hands on this sequel and my request for it at the library finally arrived! I was very happy and I cannot wait to dig into it!


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?
