Weekly Highlights: the 'February 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!

This has been a pretty crappy week. I started with a bad ankle and ended with a gigantic cold. I haven't been able to breathe for most of the week, my head feels like it's stuffed with cotton wool and I had to miss work yesterday. Send me some more virtual hugs please, I could really use them!

On The Blog
Review of The Coldest Girl In Coldtown by Holly Black (4.5 stars)
Review of Forgotten by Cat Patrick (4 stars)

Currently Reading
Fashion Assassin by Sarah Sky, the second book in Jessica Cole: Model Spy, which is really cool. A little young for me but still entertaining. And on my Kindle I'm reading Why Do Fools Fall In Love? by Louise Marley, a cheap rom-com book set in Bath. 

On My Bookshelf
Marly's Ghost by David Levithan
A remix of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol with a Valentine’s twist

When Ben’s girlfriend, Marly, dies, he feels his life is over and the prospect of Valentine’s day without her fills him with bitterness. But then Marly arrives – or at least, her ghost does – along with three other spirits. Now Ben must take a journey through Valentines past, present and future – and what he learns will change him forever.

A hand-me-down from Jess at work; I've heard good things and it has sparked my interest. 

Code Red Lipstick by Sarah Sky
Models, spies and lipstick gadgets... When Jessica's father, a former spy, vanishes mysteriously, Jessica takes matters into her own hands. She's not just a daddy's girl who's good at striking a pose; she's a trained spook who knows how to take on MI6 and beat them at their own game.

I got this and it's sequel Fashion Assassin from Faye as part of a blog tour, so look out for my review on the 9th!

February TBR

The next few picks from my TBR jar is Twinmaker by Sean Williams and Tape by Steven Camden. I am also awaiting my pre-order of Bound By Flames by Jeaniene Frost, which I will be reading as soon as I get my hands on it!

  1. Marly's Ghost mixed the mark for me so I'm interested to see what you think.
