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:
- Check, Please! Book 2: Sticks & Scones ?????
This was SO PRECIOUS and I’m so sad it’s over ??
- Steel ❌
I didn’t enjoy the over-usage of “old fashioned hero who thinks the heroine needs saving and protecting” trope here and DNFed it pretty fast.
- Seven Deadly Shadows ❌
This is one I will most likely pick back up some time.
- This is Going to Hurt ❌?
I’ve been working on this LibroFM ALC for literally MONTHS and finally tried to finish it a few nights ago, only to realize it isn’t worth finishing IMO.
- Aster and the Accidental Magic ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I got this as an unsolicited ARC a little while back and thought it looked cute, but OMG, it was so much better than I even expected! I really recommend this for Adventure Time lovers.
- Basketful of Heads ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I freaked out when I saw the Hill House Comics releases were being put up on Netgalley so I immediately grabbed them. This is the only one Joe himself wrote for the launch, I think, and it was really fun and weird.
- The Dollhouse Family ⭐⭐
Another Hill House Comics release. I’m not typically a big fan of M.R. Carey’s work and the same went for this one.
- The Low, Low Woods ?????
Also Hill House Comics. Y’all. Y’ALL. Holy shit. This is one of the best things I’ve read in a very, very long time. Carmen Maria Machado is a goddess. And I’m low key proud to see such a big production team putting this super sapphic horror story out, too. It’s about time.
- I Left the House Today! ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Cute, as I would expect from Cassandra’s comics.
⏰ up next:
I have NO reading goals this
week MONTH besides reading things that make me happy. ♥
? new review arrivals:
I hauled a few ARCs this week, but: 1) I stuck to my ban rules (I’ve read more ARCs than I’ve hauled this month), and 2) I’ve already read all but 1 of my new hauls, which I am currently reading and should hopefully finish soon, too! ?
Basketful of Heads The Dollhouse Family The Low, Low Woods I Left the House Today!
- Just Like That
???? non-bookish occupations:
Just ACNH, all the time. I had actually stopped playing as much for a couple of weeks, but I finally decided how I want my new island layout to look this week and have been basically playing NON-STOP for the last several days again.
Another mostly solid week without a lot to report! I streamed a few times and feel like I’m getting into the swing of it and starting to make some new friends in the Twitch community, so that’s been really nice. ? I’m hoping to do a series I started last week called “Spooky Sunday” where I’ll play a horror game every Sunday, but on other streaming days it’ll just be whatever I’m in the mood to play. I might pick Overwatch back up and try to finally get good ? I didn’t read much at all for the first 4-5 days of the week, but reading is mostly all I’ve wanted to do over the last 2 days, so I’m hoping I keep that up and knock out some of my ever-increasing current reads list before June 1st. ?
How are you all? Let me know what you’ve been up to this week! ♥
