Weekly Highlights

Weekly Highlights; The Almost Sprained Ankle Edition

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 has been an interesting week for me, namely because I was out on a run on tuesday and ended up landing awkwardly on my ankle and twisting it. It hurt, a lot, and I ended up with a swollen ankle and being stuck with it raised for three days. It’s all paid off as I can now – just about – walk on it again but it’s still weak. Unfortunately while being at home all day should have meant I got all on top of myself with blogging and reading, instead I got lethargic and couldn’t concentrate on anything for more than ten minutes. But, I still got enough done, I hope!

I posted two reviews this week;
Deep Amber by C. J. Busby (FOUR HEARTS)
Deeper by Robin York (FIVE HEARTS)

And the only other post I got up was my top ten contemporary reads. If you like contemp books, you should check these out!


Noughts and Crosses Read-a-Long

Noughts&Crosses Read-a-long1

This week was the second week of the Noughts and Crosses Read-a-long! Which meant that I have now finally re-read the first and second book in the series for the first time in years! (And it was awesome you guys, awesome.)

It also means that I’ve posted the first and second set of discussion questions.
You can find the first here.
And the second ones here.

Don’t worry if you haven’t read the books yet, the questions can be answered at any time in the month!

Next week I’ll be reading;
Checkmate!

And don’t forget to tweet about your progress! (#readosandxs)


Around The Blogosphere

My favourite post this week was by the glorious Gabby who has made an infographic for Sarah Dessen novels. As a fellow fan of the novels, I found it to be amazing. You can check it out, and the post, here. Don’t forget to thank Gabby for putting her time and effort into it!

Blogging and reading can be difficult at times, especially knowing when to stop reading a book. This week Sophie admitted to DNFing books more regularly now. You can read why here. All I have to say is that I think this is such a good idea! Time is too short to read things we’re not enjoying.

Anna is moving into her first house! And she has a library room to sort out! In her post this week she is asking YOU for help decorating!

Have you heard the AMAZING news about Susan Dennard? If not, run here and read all about it!

What are you thoughts on DNF reviews? Do you write them? Blog about them? Read them? Melissa wants to know your thoughts. Tell her what you think here.
