Weekly Highlights; The Slow Blog Week Edition

Posted on 22 June, 2014 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

It was only as I sat down to write this post that I realised I only posted ONE thing this week. It was an incredibly busy week for me this week and I barely got a chance to breathe, let alone blog and then I felt really ill on Friday and into some of Saturday as well. I’m hoping next week will be better for me though so let’s cross our fingers for that!

I posted my Top Ten Summer TBR Reads on tuesday! Run over to the post to find out what I hope to read this summer!

Over on Bookish Brits I posted my Buddy Review of Breakable by Tammara Webber. Head on over to here to view it! We did, unfortunately, end up spoling a little bit of Easy in the review but we found it impossible not to!

Then on my own youtube channel, A Daydreamer’s Ramblings, I finally got around to posting my May Wrap Up! If you want to find out what books I read in May, Click Here.


Upcoming

So last week all of the posts I promised, or told you would be coming up didn’t happen! (well, one did!) But here’s a little look into some more posts that should be up this week or next.

Blog tour for Flashes by Tim O’Rourke.

Blog tour for I Predict a Riot by Catherine Bruton.

One or two reviews.

Possibly a new discussion-type post.


YALC Readathon

Next week is also the YALC Readathon! I’m super excited for this and looking forward to taking part! I’ll probably use twitter to update everyone on my status throughout the week and then just have a wrap up post on the Monday after the week with all that happened so keep an eye on my twitter to see how I’m progressing!
Are you joining in? Would love to follow your progress if you are, so link me to your posts and things in the comments or on twitter!


Around the Blogosphere

Are you an eclectic reader? Or are you someone who just reads one genre? This week Jamie discusses how she used to read lots of different things but has recently been reading lots of contemporary YA. Check out the post here and let her know how you read and/or give her some tips on reading!

There have been some amazing posts for Mental Health Awareness Month and one that I really think you should read is this one.

Another post that I thought is worth a read, is this one, where Asti tells us about her Past with Depression.

This post was posted a couple of weeks ago but I just stumbled across it this week so feel it is appropiate to add into this. It is the cutest post I’ve seen in a while and one that really shows how close these two co-bloggers are.

There was also some very sad news revealed this week and that is the news that Strange Chemistry and Exhibit A are stopping trade, effective immedietly. This has affected many amazing authors such as Kim Curran, Laura Lam, and Cassandra Rose Clarke (Among many others!). Here’s Kim’s post about the news. And the lovely Leah also posted this which was lovely!

How do you feel about used books? This week, Asti tells us how she struggles to read them. Check out the great post, here and let her know your thoughts on used books!


Letterbox Love

I was really good this week! I only got three books! Yay!
Check out which ones they were in the video below :)


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?

  • You are so sweet, Faye! <3 Thanks for the link up!
    I'm swearing off most review books for a while (they are just draining me) but I really want to read The Cure for Dreaming! Apple & Rain has a beautiful cover (although, we ARE a bit biased towards the watercolour look, haha).
