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!

- I finally looked at LibroFM’s February picks and went a little overboard.
- I requested House of Shadows before I realized it was a re-release and I could’ve just read it on Kindle Unlimited. Me to myself:
what I watched:
? Another week of not really watching anything.
what I’m listening to:
? This was just a Spotify shuffle kind of week. I dunno where my head’s been, y’all.
what I’m playing:
? … nope, didn’t play anything either.
This week was… I don’t know. I didn’t think it was all that bad while it was happening (until a mental health low smacked the hell out of me yesterday), but looking back, I didn’t DO ANYTHING besides schoolwork and cleaning and work. And I don’t know if anyone else is like this, but when I realize I haven’t done anything hobby-related or related to my interests in a few days, that is always a HUGE red flag that my mental health has been suffering and I haven’t been loving on myself the way I ought to be. This past week just felt like a blur and I’m not sure what was up with it, but hopefully the coming week will be better.
goals for the coming week:
Update on last week’s goals:
- Write reviews for at least 20 of the books on my “RTC” (review to come) shelf on goodreads
- ❌❌❌❌❌ Nope. I reviewed ONE. Sigh.
- Re-do all of my booktube thumbnails with a new thumbnail style
- ❌❌❌❌❌ Noooooope…
- Plan out all of my February bookstagram posts
- ✅ I did do this! I haven’t taken all of the photos yet but I wrote down a dated list and that’s a start.
This week’s new goals:
- (carrying over) Write reviews for 20+ RTCs
- (carrying over) Re-do booktube thumbnails
- Catch up on blog hopping (I think there are about 700 posts sitting in Feedly waiting for me…)
a few last words:
