Weekly Highlights: the 'Half Term' 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!

I started my new job at the beginning of the month and it's going great but god did I need this week off! And it was going great; I spent a lot of it with my fiancĂ©, we saw the new Deadpool movie and did a bit of shopping, and then my body decided it needed to get a cold. So yeah, I'm tired and snotty and can't keep my eyes open to do much of anything.

Currently Reading
A Very British Murder by Lucy Worsley - a non-fiction about society's interest in murder as entertainment - and Fallout, my new book. Both I'm really enjoying, not that my headache is letting me read much.

Fallout by Gwenda Bond
Lois Lane is starting a new life in Metropolis. An Army brat, Lois has lived all over—and seen all kinds of things. (Some of them defy explanation, like the near-disaster she witnessed in Kansas in the middle of one night.) But now her family is putting down roots in the big city, and Lois is determined to fit in. Stay quiet. Fly straight. As soon as she steps into her new high school, though, she can see it won’t be that easy. A group known as the Warheads is making life miserable for another girl at school. They’re messing with her mind, somehow, via the high-tech immersive videogame they all play. Not cool. Armed with her wit and her new snazzy job as a reporter, Lois has her sights set on solving this mystery. But sometimes it’s all a bit much. Thank goodness for her maybe-more-than-a friend, a guy she knows only by his screenname, SmallvilleGuy.

I'm still in a graphic novel mood and I am really looking forward to a new look at DC's greatest hero. Thank you Curious Fox!


  1. I didn't realise Fallout was a graphic novel!

    1. Oh, no it isn't (I wasn't sure when I requested it, but it isn't) but I'm just in a superhero mood :)
