The Weekly Wrap — February 5th, 2020

February 5, 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!

current reads:

  1. Seven Deadly Shadows (25%)
  2. Hearts On Hold (22%)

recently finished:

I’m challenging myself to read 29 books in 29 days this month, and so far, I’ve been doing pretty well! While I didn’t finish a book on the 4th (yesterday) because I had a ton of grad school work and went on a date with my spouse, I did make some good progress in my current reads so hopefully I’ll finish 2 books while I’m off tomorrow and make up the slack. ?

  1. Jane Anonymous ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  2. When I Arrived at the Castle ?????
  3. Prosper’s Demon ?????

up next:

I’m aiming to read 7+ books in the next week, and the ones I’m  most hoping to pick up are…

  1. Rolling in the Deep
  2. Laughing at Shadows
  3. Gate 4: Volume One Episodes
  4. Riot Baby
  5. Taaqtumi
  6. Cracked Up to Be
  7. Foul is Fair


new review arrivals:

  • e-arcs:
    • Mexican Gothic
    • Cracked Up to Be
  • print arcs:
    • Prosper’s Demon
    • Final Cuts: New Tales of Hollywood Horror and Other Spectacles
    • The Extraordinaries
  • audio arcs:
    • Lullabies for Suffering

After a couple of weeks in a row of only hauling 1 ARC per week, this week is a bit of a jump. ? To be fair, I didn’t request Final Cuts or The Extraordinaries, they both just showed up as surprises (and very pleasant ones, at that, because I am SO freaking excited for both of them!). Out of the ones I did request, I’ve already read one, and another looks like a really quick read, so I’m not feeling too bad about the number this week.


what I watched:

? Just lots of YouTube again this week.


what I’m listening to:

? Breaking Benjamin — ‘Aurora‘ album (Yes, again)
? Three Days Grace — ‘One-X’ album (Throwback time! I might have listened to this album on repeat all day yesterday and relived my angsty preteen days.)


what I’m playing:

? After having just gotten my Switch, finally… I’m returning it because they announced the limited edition Animal Crossing console and I needed it instead. ?? So, that’s been pre-ordered, and the cost is that I’m not in the mood to play ANYTHING right now because all I want is my Switch and to spend time with my favorite little animal villagers.


life updates:

Not a bad week here! It was pretty laid-back, just loads of assignments for grad school. I still can’t believe this is my final semester.


goals for the coming week:

NEW SECTION! I thought it’d be fun to start setting myself a couple of weekly goals in these posts. This week, I’d like to…

  1. Write reviews for at least 20 of the books on my “RTC” (review to come) shelf on goodreads
  2. Re-do all of my booktube thumbnails with a new thumbnail style
  3. Plan out all of my February bookstagram posts


a few last words:




twitter | booktube | bookstagram | facebook | goodreads


More about Destiny @ Howling Libraries

Just a horror aficionado/geek girl trying to juggle motherhood, reading, blogging, gaming, and everyday life.

    1. Looks like you had a pretty good week! I hope the next one is just as good!


        1. Lots of mediocre reads so far.. Hopefully I get some amazing ones now!
