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.
This week I wrote FOUR reviews;
Side Effects (2013) (FOUR HEARTS)
Ferryman by Claire McFall (FIVE HEARTS)
Stepping Into More by Rachel Karu
Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohen and David Levithan (THREE HEARTS)
For my Thursday’s Special Spotlight this week I choose to highlight Anna Dressed in Blood. Check out why I love the book here

Not a particularly busy book with for me, but I still got some interesting things to share with you all. Plus… I went to the HP Studio Tour! (more on this later) :D
The Bunker Diary by Kevin Brooks; I love Kevin. He is one of my favourite authors and has been since I was a lot younger. I cannot wait to dive into this book!
One Seriously Messed Up Week in the Otherwise Mundane and Uneventful Life of Jack Samsonite by Tom Clempson; I got the second book in this series last week, I started reading it and was already giggling so figured I should start by reading the first book so I got this one from the library. Looking forward to the laughs.
The Change Up; I wanted to see this film when it was in the cinemas, and I am intrigued by it. Have you seen it? I don’t know if it’ll be any good or not!
Silent Saturday by Helen Grant; A very pretty finished review copy from Random House. I am really excited for this book, it sounds stunning and cannot wait to get stuck into it!
On Friday I finally went to the Harry Potter Studio Tour and, aside from it being an absolutely amazing experience, I also bought some souveniers! I got some Honeydukes chocolate and a Harry Potter Studio Tour mug (not pictured) which I’m looking forward to using! And, because I bought stuff, I also got a free Harry Potter bookmark which I also look forward to using.
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!
