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:
- The Bone Season ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐?
I finally finished my reread! It was so much better the second time around. ♥
- Let’s Bake!: A Pusheen Cookbook
This was an eARC I had that was cute, but kind of impossible to rate because of reasons.
- Haunted Mansion ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Very cute and sweet, though I probably wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who isn’t either 1) its target audience, or 2) a HUGE fan of MG stories.
- Giant Days, Vol. 12 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
One of my favorite installments yet. We got a nice amount of quality McGraw content ♥
- The Throne of Fire ⭐⭐⭐?
“Second book syndrome” for sure…
- Harleen ?????
100% a new favorite graphic novel of all time.
- All Together Dead ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Soooo much better than the last installment!
- Heavy Vinyl: Y2K-O!, Vol. 2 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Very cute and gay ♥
- How Do We Relationship?, Vol. 1 ⭐⭐⭐⭐
This 100% will NOT be for everyone, but I liked it.
- The Serpent’s Shadow ⭐⭐⭐?
Well, I’m sad to say that I’m relieved this series is over.
- Forever Theirs ❌
I realized I really liked how minimal the drama in the prequel novella was, and I wasn’t interested in the drama that this first full novel in the series was bringing about. I’ll probably pick it back up some time when I’m more in the mood for it.
- Check, Please! Book 1: #Hockey ??????
I decided to reread this before reading Book 2 and I’m so glad I did because I had forgotten how utterly precious it is.
- The Science of Monsters ❌
I don’t like nonfiction that reads like textbooks.
- The Devil’s List ⭐⭐⭐
Not bad, but not my favorite of this author’s work!
- Night of the Mannequins ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Stephen Graham Jones is so weird in the best way.
- The Boy Who Cried Werewolf ?⭐⭐⭐⭐
This was so much fun and I highly recommend it to any Goosebumps fans!

???? non-bookish occupations:
More ACNH, forever.
Ahh… this was a pretty good week. Like, substantially better than the last few weeks have been. I’ve come to learn that I need to keep my brain busy right now as much as possible, so I spent this week reading practically non-stop, rekindling friendships, working on my blog, catching up on comments, and teaching my kiddo how to play PS4 games (he’s obsessed with Goat Simulator right now lmao). I cooked a lot, cleaned a lot, and stayed away from social media (aside from Instagram), and all of that combined seemed to make for a pretty good mental health combo! My sleep schedule is in shambles, but that’s a problem to deal with some other time. ? I’m just hoping the coming week is even better, and I hope you’re all doing as well as you can be and staying safe! ♥
— destiny ♥
