Weekly Highlights: the 'April 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! 

Nothing new to report - only one new book this week, although I think I'm having withdrawal symptoms as I dreamed of book shops the other night! The only other interesting thing to happen this week is that I've dyed my hair red!

On The Blog
Review of The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E Smith (5 stars)
Review of Obsidian by Jennifer L Armentrout (5 stars)
Review of Onyx by Jennifer L Armentrout (4.5 stars)

Currently Reading
Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan - I am loving this modern twist on the classic Gothic novel; it's funny and a bit scary and surprisingly sweet.

White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L Armentrout

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she's anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.
Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she’s crushed on since forever.
Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she’s not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn’t an issue, considering Roth has no soul.
But when Layla discovers she’s the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne…it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

Oh look, another Jennifer Armentrout book! I hadn't considered this but after reading and loving her Lux series, I requested this on Netgalley. Thank you Mira Ink!

April TBR
I have 6 review books to read this month, 2 coming out in April, the other 4 the 1st May: The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa, The Fearless by Emma Pass, The Worst Girlfriend In The World by Sarra Manning, The Glass Bird Girl by Esme Kerr, Tease by Amanda Maciel, and Riot by Sarah Mussi. 
I think that'll get me through the month, don't you? If not, I've got both physical and ebook picks from TBR jars.


  1. I've read one of Jennifer L Armentrout's books under J Lynn but can't really remember it so maybe I need to read some of her other books soon. It sounds like you're enjoying them!

    Happy reading, Anya!

  2. I still need to read a JLA book...

    Ooooh! You HAVE to let me know what you think of The Glass Bird Girl as I keep meaning to read it! Also, I'm in the middle of The Forever Song and it's SO GOOD but just been in a bit of a reading slump myself.

    Good luck with reading and enjoying all of your books! :)


  3. I only got White Hot Kiss because of the Lux series as well. Hopefully it'll have a match for Daemon ;)

  4. Ooh dyed hair! Do you have a picture? Do you like it? Good luck with your TBR. I adored Tease so I'd recommend that first!
