The Weekly Wrap

The Weekly Wrap — January 8th, 2020

January 8, 2020

The Weekly Wrap is a new post I’ll be doing every week where we’ll talk about current reads, recently finished reads, what I’m listening to, games I’m playing, movies I’m watching, and general life stuff. ♥ If you’re a fan of my past WWW Wednesday & The Sunday Post updates, you’ll love this combination of the two!

I basically just need to read as much as humanly possible this week because I decided last night that I am BOUND AND DETERMINED!!!! to actually at least start every book on my January TBR… and there are a lot left. ;-;


new review arrivals:

  • e-arcs:
    • Seasons of the Storm
    • The Only Good Indians
    • My Dark Vanessa
    • Leaders of the Pack (unsolicited)
    • Gate 4: Volume One Episodes (unsolicited)
  • print arcs:
    • Gloom Town
  • audio arcs:
    • The Invasion (re-release/re-read)

Way too many new review copies this week, buuuut at least I already listened to the ALC for The Invasion (and adored it just as much as I remember loving it as a kid).


what I watched:

🎥 Polaroid (2019) — ⭐💫 (Pretty awful.)
🎥 Child’s Play (2019) — 💫 (WHY did I bother?!)
🎥 Ready or Not (2019) — ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (Easily one of my favorite films I’ve seen in a LONG time!)
🎥 Midsommar (2019) — ⭐⭐ (I honestly don’t remember the last time I was this disappointed in an anticipated film.)

what I’m listening to:

🎵 No music, just more audiobooks this week!

what I’m playing:

🎮 I didn’t really play anything this week, surprisingly 🙁


life updates:

This was a pretty laid-back week! Work was chill, I did some more booktube stuff, read a lot, and watched a lot of youtube videos. Sorry, there just isn’t much to report today! 😂

    Enjoy your reading! I can’t wait to read Come tumbling down, probably later this week!

    Sorry you were so disappointed in Midsommar! I liked it a bit more than you, but was also not immensely impressed. I probably wouldn’t watch it again. I am STOKED to see Ready or Not though and I’m excited that you liked it so much!! I’ve also been thinking of rereading Animorphs for a while and noticed that both you and another friend of mine JUST reread the first, which makes me want to do it even more. 🙂

    I’m just a little bit envious of how much you’ve read! I’m currently on one book in 2020 haha – but so many good books! Excited to hear what you think of Gideon the Ninth because of mixed reviews I’ve heard! 😅
