Weekly Highlights: the 'I'm on holiday' edition

Weekly Highlights is a feature borrowed from Faye of A Daydreamer's Thoughts, where I get to highlight my posts of the week, show you my new books and talk about bookish things! 

So, the news this week is that right now, I'm on holiday. My family have a time share in the Lakes and I haven't been in over a decade, and it's not like I have a job, so yeah, holiday! Anyway, apart from that, nothing new so happy reading and see you all next week!

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Cath and Wren are identical twins, and until recently they did absolutely everything together. Now they're off to university and Wren's decided she doesn't want to be one half of a pair any more - she wants to dance, meet boys, go to parties and let loose. It's not so easy for Cath. She's horribly shy and has always buried herself in the fan fiction she writes, where she always knows exactly what to say and can write a romance far more intense than anything she's experienced in real life. Without Wren Cath is completely on her own and totally outside her comfort zone. She's got a surly room-mate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words ...And she can't stop worrying about her dad, who's loving and fragile and has never really been alone. Now Cath has to decide whether she's ready to open her heart to new people and new experiences, and she's realizing that there's more to learn about love than she ever thought possible ...

Yay! I can finally read this book that everyone's raving about! And just in time for holiday reading!


  1. Whoop whoop for Heart Shaped Bruise and Days of Blood and Starlight! They're both incredible.

  2. Hope you enjoy your holiday reads! I've heard SO many good things about Fangirl (I have it on order myself) looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

  3. Hope you are having/had a great holiday! Fangirl is so so good. This time next week I will have met you! Eee!
