For whatever reason, moving this weekly post to Sundays sounded like a good idea — I guess because, in my brain, weeks go from Sunday through Saturday, not Wednesday through Tuesday, and… oh, it doesn’t matter.

✅ recently finished:
- A Thief in the Nude ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Really sweet and cute.
- Theirs for the Night ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I loved this SO MUCH and can’t wait to read the next book!
- Desperate Measures ⭐⭐⭐💫
Actually a bit of a letdown after all the hype I’d heard, but I still enjoyed it and definitely think I’ll like the rest of the series more (I was never an Aladdin fan).
- The Wicked + The Divine, Vol. 1: The Faust Act ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐🔁
I’m so glad I decided to finally give this series another chance, because I liked this so much more this time around!
- Definitely Dead ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Sadly one of my least favorites in the series so far.
- You Died: An Anthology of the Afterlife ❌
This was just okay, and then it went and hit one of my biggest triggers as a parent and I DNFed it right then and there. Plenty of people will love this, though.
- The Crossroad at Midnight ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Spooky, sad, and fun.
- The Last Halloween: The Children ⭐⭐⭐⭐
This was so weirdly hilarious and twisted.
- How to Survive a Horror Movie ⭐⭐
One of my biggest reading disappointments of the year so far, tbh.
- The Guild, Vol. 1 ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Cute, and now I want to rewatch the series.
- Chew, Vol. 1 ⭐⭐⭐
Eh… a neat premise, but just an “okay” execution.
- It Takes Two to Tumble ⭐⭐⭐⭐
This was really lovely and sweet.
- A Breath Too Late ⭐⭐
I disliked this one enough that it broke through my review writing block and I have a full review scheduled for later this week. 😬
- The Girl in the Video ⭐⭐
Meh… another letdown.
- Geekerella ❌
I finally gave up on this one. I’m just really not interested anymore. 🙁
⏰ up next:
I have NO reading goals this
week MONTH besides reading things that make me happy. ♥

More ACNH, forever.
I haven’t played this as much in the last week as I was earlier in April, but I still try to get into it often.
An up-and-down week, which is better than the terrible week before it, so I’m not complaining. Oh, and… I finished grad school?!?! I can’t believe it either, but Thursday night, I submitted my final assignments for my MLIS degree (Master of Library and Information Science). After being in school non-stop since Pre-K, ya girl is finally done. (No joke, besides summer breaks, I’ve had TWO semesters off in the last 22 years.)
I mean, I might go for another Master’s or PhD someday because I’ve always said my mid-life career dream is to be an eccentric, hippie professor at a liberal arts school, but that goal is literally decades away. 😂
