Weekly Highlights: the 'June 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!

Another 'I forgot last week, here have lot's of stuff' update I'm afraid. Actually, not a lot to report, book or personal wise. Got a couple of review books that I'm really excited about, details below, and personal wise I have an interview for a part time job at a jewelers next week! I'm nervous and excited, I really want this one, so please wish me luck!

Just finished Cinder which was incredible! I'm now onto a review book: How To Be Bad.

On My Bookshelf
One by Sarah Crossan
Grace and Tippi are twins – conjoined twins.

And their lives are about to change.

No longer able to afford homeschooling, they must venture into the world – a world of stares, sneers and cruelty. Will they find more than that at school? Can they find real friends? And what about love?

But what neither Grace or Tippi realises is that a heart-wrenching decision lies ahead. A decision that could tear them apart. One that will change their lives even more than they ever imagined…

I haven't read anything about conjoined twins before, which I am a little wary about, but I adore Sarah Crossan so I am ready to be surprised! Thank you Bloomsbury and Netgalley!

How To Be Bad by E Lockhart
When you're tired of being good, sometimes you gotta be a little bad ...

Jesse, Vicks and Mel couldn't be more different. Jesse, a righteous Southern gal who's as thoughtful as she is uptight, is keeping a secret that she knows will change her life forever. Vicks is a wild child: seemingly cool, calm and collected on the outside, but inside she's furious at herself for being so anxious about her neglectful boyfriend. And Mel is the new girl in town. She's already been dismissed as just another rich kid, but all she wants is to get over some of her fears and find some true friends. 

But for all their differences, the girls discover they've got one thing in common - they're desperate to escape. Desperate to get the heck out of Niceville and discover their true 'badass' selves! Even if it's just for the weekend ... One 'borrowed' car later, it's time to hit the road and head for Miami. Hearts will be broken, friendships will be tested, and a ridiculously hot stranger could change the course of everything.

I could not resist a new E Lockhart book! Co-authored by Lauren Myracle and Sarah Mlynowski, I'm really intrigued about this one. Thank you Hot Key!

June TBR
I've got books 2 and 3 of The Lunar Chronicles to read after the amazing Cinder. Then I think it'll be something light-hearted, probably The Accidental Life of Jessie Jefferson. And how about we try something different: choose for me! All The Bright Places, The Diviners or We Are All Made of Molecules - let me know which one I should read next.
