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.
I revealed the cover of Firefly by Belle Whittington with the chance to WIN the series, here
I listed my top ten most anticipated debuts of 2013 (and managed to add many more to my own list) – check them out here

Around the Blogosphere
There was a lot of grand posts going up on blogs this week and here is just a few that caught my eye!
Alexandra @ Alexandra’s Scribblings has been seeing a lot of posts about the Males in YA and decided to take one step further and write about the Girls of YA. It was a great post that I think you should definitely go and check out!
Lucy @ ChooseYA announced some news about Penguin Chats and how she is a partner for it and will be giving away some cool prizes! Check out her post here for more information on what Penguin Chats are!
The amazing author Susan Dennard wrote a post about how to get published which is definitely worth a read if you’re an aspiring writer! I have to admit, I am quickly falling in love with Susan, she is such a wonderful person!
It has been announced! There will be a Mini-Bloggiesta! It’s going to be the first weekend of February! Go check out the post to know more about what will happen! I, for one, am really looking forward to it!

Tomorrow marks the start of the Winter Respite Read-a-thon! I’m definitely looking forward to this, but I also have a week full of work so who knows how much time I’ll actually have to read! If you want to join me, you can sign-up here!
Letterbox Love is a meme hosted by Narratively Speaking where UK-based bloggers can highlight the books they’ve recieved each week. And here is what I got;
I have been waiting for this book since, oh I don’t know, September?, so when it finally arrived, I did actually do a dance around the room! I have only read one chapter of it so far because I’m trying to read it slowly, to allow myself to enjoy it for a longer period of time. But I have a small feeling that as soon as the story really gets going, that will go out of the window. But at least I am thinking about reading it this way! lol.
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!
