Weekly Highlights: the 'maybe work experience' 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! 

What a surprise, another boring week! Not much to report, but some possible good news on the job hunt: a local publisher wants to meet me so I can do some work experience for them! I'm just waiting to hear back about when, but I'm really excited! Wish me luck!

The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa - the last book in the Blood of Eden series and it's just as fast-paced and dramatic as I remember!

Nine Uses for an Ex-boyfriend by Sarra Manning
Hope Delafield hasn't always had an easy life.

She has red hair and a temper to match, as her mother is constantly reminding her. She can't wear heels, is terrified of heights and being a primary school teacher isn't exactly the job she dreamed of doing, especially when her class are stuck on the two times table.

At least Hope has Jack, and Jack is the God of boyfriends. He's sweet, kind, funny, has a killer smile, a cool job on a fashion magazine and he's pretty (but in a manly way). Hope knew that Jack was The One ever since their first kiss after the Youth Club Disco and thirteen years later, they're still totally in love. Totally. They're even officially pre-engaged. And then Hope catches Jack kissing her best friend Susie...

Does true love forgive and forget? Or does it get mad... and get even?

I was feeling really crappy in the week so on a trip into town, I bought this along with a giant bar of chocolate to make me feel better. The chocolate sort of made me feel sick, but books are always nice to me! Plus, I've been eyeing this one for a while and I adore Sarra Manning so looking forward to curling up with this one soon!


  1. Congrats on the possible work experience! And yay for Sarra Manning!

  2. I love reading a fun book to cheer me up! Good luck with organising the work experience too- fingers crossed :-)
