Weekly Highlights: the 'July 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!

Blimey, is it really July already? Well that heat certainly suggests it is! Bloody hell! Anyway, not a lot to report, it's been another week of lounging, job applying and reading, with the added twist of trying to do drown in sweat.

On The Blog
Review of On The Fence by Kasie West (5 stars)
Review of Seed by Lisa Heathfield (5 stars)
Review of It's About Love by Steven Camden (3 stars)

Currently Reading
The Rain by Virginia Bergin - I was in the mood for a dystopian and why not one about water in the middle of a heat wave?

On My Bookshelf
Crow Mountain by Lucy Inglis
While on holiday in Montana, Hope meets local boy Cal Crow, a ranch hand. Caught in a freak accident, the two of them take shelter in a mountain cabin where Hope makes a strange discovery. More than a hundred years earlier, another English girl met a similar fate. Her rescuer: a horse-trader called Nate. 

In this wild place, both girls learn what it means to survive and to fall in love, neither knowing that their fates are intimately entwined.

Darkmere by Helen Maslin
A castle. A curse. A dangerous summer. Leo has invited Kate and a few friends to spend the summer at his inheritance, Darkmere Castle: as wild and remote as it is beautiful. Kate thinks it will be the perfect place for her and Leo to get together - but instead, she's drawn into the dark story of a young nineteenth-century bride who haunts the tunnels and towers of the house. And whose curse now hangs over them all.

A couple of review books from Chicken House, part of their 'How do you like your romance?' campaign. I'm really looking forward to both of them, especially the gothic nature of Darkmere. Thank you Chicken House!

July TBR
It's Chapter 5's Summer Reading Challenge again! Check out my twitter here and you can see what I'm planning to read for each category. And that's pretty much all I plan to read this month. I have a few review books due out late August, early September that I might get to this month or maybe leave until August. Haven't decided yet.
