Weekly Highlights: the 'September TBR' 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! 

Man, is it seriously September already? I say this every month but where has the time gone? Anyway, news! Some of you might already know this if you follow me on twitter but I got a new job (at last!) in Waterstones. I started yesterday and although it involves a lot of standing around, I really like it! 

On The Blog
Review of Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas (4 stars)
Review of Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (5 stars)
Review of Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins (5 stars)

Currently Reading
The Whispering Skull by Jonathon Stroud - ah, it is so good! Spooky and a little gross but very funny.

On My Bookshelf
Zac and Mia by AJ Betts

The last person Zac expects in the room next door is a girl like Mia, angry and feisty with questionable taste in music. In the real world, he wouldn’t—couldn’t—be friends with her. In hospital different rules apply, and what begins as a knock on the wall leads to a note—then a friendship neither of them sees coming.

You need courage to be in hospital; different courage to be back in the real world. In one of these worlds Zac needs Mia. And in the other Mia needs Zac. Or maybe they both need each other, always.

Likened to TFioS, I'm probably going to cry but it sounds adorable. Thank you Text Publishing!

September TBR
I have one September release and an early October release that I need to read: Zac and Mia, and Frozen by Melissa de la Cruz. And in terms of my TBR jar, I haven't picked any but I want to read We Were Liars by E Lockhart and Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly, and I need to get my hands on the rest of the Infernal Devices series. So that's my month, how about you? Got any new releases that you need to read right away? Or anything from the back list?


  1. Prepare for angst, tears and pure awesome with the rest of TID and I hope you love We Were Liars!

  2. Congrats on the job, Anya! x
