outside the blogosphere

This week was a lot better than last week, mainly because it was fairly uneventful and it was the first week at work in months that didn’t involve any massive Summer Reading Program events or planning. 😂 I also read more this week than I have in months, so that was a huge relief.

reading this weekend…

I still have too many current reads (11), but this weekend, I plan on finishing a few quick reads so I can get that number lowered!
📚 In the Shadow of Spindrift House
📚 Dead to the World
📚 Shout
📚 Aquicorn Cove

what I watched

🎥 Into the Dark: They Come Knocking (2019) [Hulu original] This was okay. The creepy kids were fun and I liked the overall plot, but the script was weak and the acting left a lot to be desired.
🎥 How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) [movie day @ work] Well, that was bittersweet. I loved it, but it also broke my heart a few times.

what I listened to

* these are my favorite songs of the week!

🎵 This was mostly an audiobook week for me!

what I played

🎮 Nothing this week! I didn’t have much free time at home.

      Haha yessss, same! I joke that August is “pre-fall” but I’m dying for September to start this weekend 🙂

    OMG I just realized I never ended up watching the last HTTYD! I kind of don’t want to either because that means its over. Have you watched the series they made on Netflix?

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries August 30, 2019 at 11:15 pm

      No, I haven’t watched the series! Have you? And it is sad to see the series end. 🙁 The last one was SO good though so I definitely recommend it when you’re in the mood for some tears lol!

    Hahaha, the Halloween meme made my day! It’s so true! I’ve already been planning a few blog posts for October! Oops. 🙂 I’m so happy you liked the last HTTYD movie! It’s definitely bittersweet and had me weepy, but I adored it nonetheless! Lovely wrap up! <3

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries August 30, 2019 at 11:16 pm

      Haha I love that you’re already working on October content! You’re amazing and I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us, beautiful! And yes to HTTYD – so bittersweet but so great! Thank you, doll!
