Weekly Highlights: the 'September 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!

It's back to work for me this month! A new batch of students, inductions and tours of the library will be the order of business for the next few weeks. And as I'm working most days again, I'm honestly not sure how much reading/blogging I'm going to be able to do so if I disappear for a few days, just nudge me on twitter and make sure I haven't fallen asleep on my keyboard!

On The Blog
A few of my favourite reviews from the last month:
Review of Under Rose Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall (5 stars)
Review of What's A Girl Gotta Do? by Holly Bourne (5 stars)
Review of The Moonlight Dreamers by Siobhan Curham (4 stars)
Review of The Deviants by CJ Skuse (4 stars)

Currently Reading
At time of writing, I've nearly finished Jolly Foul Play, book four in the Murder Most Unladylike series. Next up, I'm thinking something completely different with And I Darken by Kirsten White.

On My Bookshelf
Could it be I didn't buy any books this month? I've been amazingly good and only borrowed library books from work. For instance, I'm caught up with the Murder Most Unladylike series; I read my first Patrick Ness; my August classic and my first Shirley Jackson; and I've been delving into feminist non-fiction with Laura Bates' Girl Up and Sara Pascoe's Animal.

September TBR
I'm focusing on the one's I didn't get to last month, mainly Haunt Me and And I Darken. I also want to catch up on my ebooks that are piling up on my kindle, especially If I Was Your Girl and my review copy of Holding Up The Universe. And then's there my exciting pre-orders: Empire of Storms and The Creeping Shadow by Jonathan Stroud.
