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 main and most important exciting thing from this week is that I've started my new job! I'm doing 2 days a week of training for a few weeks before starting my regular weekend hours. So I've done 2 half days and I've learned loads about behind the scenes of libraries and dealing with customers and cheating ways of sorting books and it's been so much fun!

Fans of the Impossible Life - just over a third of the way through right now, it's really interesting to see different styles and characters work alongside other.
On My BookshelfFirsts by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn
Seventeen-year-old Mercedes Ayres has an open-door policy when it comes to her bedroom, but only if the guy fulfills a specific criteria: he has to be a virgin. Mercedes lets the boys get their awkward, fumbling first times over with, and all she asks in return is that they give their girlfriends the perfect first time- the kind Mercedes never had herself.
Keeping what goes on in her bedroom a secret has been easy- so far. Her absentee mother isn’t home nearly enough to know about Mercedes’ extracurricular activities, and her uber-religious best friend, Angela, won’t even say the word “sex” until she gets married. But Mercedes doesn’t bank on Angela’s boyfriend finding out about her services and wanting a turn- or on Zach, who likes her for who she is instead of what she can do in bed.
When Mercedes’ perfect system falls apart, she has to find a way to salvage her reputation and figure out where her heart really belongs in the process. Funny, smart, and true-to-life, FIRSTS is a one-of-a-kind young adult novel about growing up.
Oh God, doesn't this sound hilarious? I couldn't resist, I'm really excited to see how this is going to work! Thank you Netgalley and St Martin's Griffin!
