Weekly Highlights: the 'Cold' 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!

Unfortunately, I've been absent from the blog and most of online this week. I caught a cold and came down with it hard on Tuesday and that pretty much rendered me bed ridden until Friday. I'm back at work this weekend, albeit slowly and with a fair amount of coughing, and I need to catch up on reading and reviewing on Monday - don't worry, I have a plan!

On The Blog
Review of All Of The Above by James Dawson (5 stars)
Review of This Is Not A Love Story by Keren David (4 stars)
Review of Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon (4 stars)
Blog Tour: How Do You Like Your Romance? 

Currently Reading
Opal and Illuminae - things are a bit confusing in Opal and I'm not really enjoying it at much as the first two books. Illuminae however is the most brilliant and fantastic thing and I love it!

On My Bookshelf
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.

The poverty-stricken Reds are commoners, living in the shadow of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers.

To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from the Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change.

Then Mare finds herself working at the Silver palace, in the midst of those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.

PS I Still Love You by Jenny Han
Lara Jean didn’t expect to really fall for Peter. She and Peter were just pretending. Except suddenly they weren’t. Now Lara Jean is more confused than ever. When another boy from her past returns to her life, Lara Jean’s feelings for him return too. Can a girl be in love with two boys at once?

In this charming and heartfelt sequel to the New York Times bestseller To All the Boys I've Loved Before, we see first love through the eyes of the unforgettable Lara Jean. Love is never easy, but maybe that’s part of what makes it so amazing.

This is partly 'I wanted them and they were on offer' and partly 'everyone else has read them and I'm so behind!' So yeah, really looking forward to these two!
