The Weekly Wrap — April 15th, 2020

April 15, 2020

The Weekly Wrap is a post 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!

Seven Deadly Shadows

I picked up the audiobook of this on Scribd a few days ago and almost finished it! I just need to hurry up and wrap it up now.


The Shadow of What Was Lost

I’m going so slowly on this for some reason and I don’t know why, but I did finally put it into my reading “schedule” to start trying to read at least 10% a day…



Almost done with this one! It’s been cute, but… eh. Nothing special.


Ghost Squad

This is SO CUTE and sad already.

The Bone Season (reread)

I’ve been loving this reread SO MUCH and I’m almost finished with it!


The Unsuitable

Holy crap, this is… so gothic and weird and twisted and GREAT. So great.


Red Sister

I fell way behind on my buddy read with Kayleigh for this one, but I can’t wait to read the rest! I l love it so far.


✅ recently finished:

Always Human


This was a little bit of a letdown as far as plot goes, but it was so beautiful and soft and diverse, I couldn’t help but love it anyways.


Moon Called (reread)


My 3rd time listening to this audiobook and I love it a little bit more each time.


Alpha & Omega (reread)


I originally gave this 4 stars but bumped it up to 5 stars with this reread, if that tells you anything about how much I missed Anna and Charles. ♥?


House of Penance

❌ DNF ❌

I was instantly so bored and disinterested in this, sadly. It was just a Hoopla loan so I didn’t hesitate to dump it when I realized I wasn’t into it.


Bone Parish, Vol. 2


This was SO GOOD. A world where scientists take ash from corpses and make drugs for their loved ones to revisit them? So great, and so easily sent awry.

Clap When You Land


Oh my gods, y’all, the level of EMOTIONAL DESTRUCTION this book wrought upon me. It was flawless.

Ghost Hunters Adventure Club and the Grande Chateau


This was hilarious and stupid in the best way.

april 20, 2020 | netgalley

An m/m dom/sub romance in a small conservative town… sounds pretty solid.

50344745. sy475

The Girl Next Door

may 26 2020 | netgalley

A  happy, soft-sounding little f/f romance from a queer author who I’ve had good luck with in the past!


The Hideaway Inn

may 26, 2020 | netgalley

This cover is just… so soft??? ? And I have this weird adoration for home/building renovation romances? I don’t even know.

Breath Like Water

may 19, 2020 | netgalley

Sometimes, you just need a basic YA romance. ?‍♀️


???? non-bookish occupations: Animal Crossing: New Horizons - Nintendo Switch ...

More ACNH, forever.

Joe Exotic in Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness (2020)

We watched the post-series interview episode of Tiger King as soon as it was uploaded to Netflix, and now I’m sad that it’s really over. ?


life updates:

Another quiet, mostly good week. I think, at this point in time, no news is good news. ♥ I hope you’re all doing well and staying safe.


goals for the coming week:

I’m bringing this section back! … a little bit. ?

My only “goal” for the coming week is to work on my RTC shelf on Goodreads. I’m not aiming to totally clear it, but I’d like to make a dent.
