Weekly Highlights: the 'Wisdom tooth' 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! 

It's been quite a bad week. It started great, I went out for pizza and saw How To Train Your Dragon 2 (which was awesome!) but I had a weird feeling in my jaw that wouldn't go away. It got progressively worse and by Wednesday it was decided that my last wisdom tooth was making an appearance. The last few days I haven't been sleeping, I also can't always eat because my entire left side of my face aches. So yeah! Fun times! Anyway, I've decided I'm going to take a few days off blogging. I haven't been reading much all week because of headaches or napping, plus words don't make sense to me right now! So send me hugs, those are always nice, and I'll see you when I see you.

On My Bookshelf
Dracula's Guest by Bram Stoker
Menacing tales from one of the masters of horror fiction. Although Bram Stoker is best known for his world-famous novel Dracula, he also wrote many shorter works on the strange and the macabre. Comprised of spine-chilling tales published by Stoker’s widow after his death, as well as The Lair of the White Worm, an intensely intriguing novel of myths, legends, and unspeakable evils, this collection demonstrates the full range of Stoker’s horror writing.

A classic novel borrowed from the library, for both Chapter 5's and Lucky 14's reading challenges. I could have re-read Dracula but this sounds really interesting. Depending on my brain power, I hope to start this tonight. 

Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi
Aria has struggled to build a life for herself outside Reverie. It hasn't been easy adjusting to life in the wilderness but that struggle has been worth it with Perry by her side. 

But Perry has other challenges. His people are looking to him for answers. Answers about what happened to his nephew and what's happening to their world. And they don't trust the priviledged Aria, one of the enemy, in their midst. 

Soon he'll be forced to chose between the tribe that looks to him for leadership and the girl that looks to him for love.

The sequel to Under the Never Sky, I am really looking forward to continuing the series!


  1. I loved Under the Never Sky but never finished the trilogy! Must get on that. Hope your teeth feel better soon!

  2. Sorry to hear about your teeth :( I've put off going to the dentist for about 4 years now....
