Weekly Check-in: finishing up my 29 books challenge month

February 29, 2024

weekly check-in

It’s time for a weekly check-in!

life update

Happy leap year day, everyone! I can’t believe it’s the last day of February already. I’m really looking forward to spring and missing the sunshine, so I’m not mad about it. Our weather has been absolutely wild here lately! Earlier this week, it was sunny and in the low 70s, and then yesterday it was freezing and storming. We usually get a cold snap around early March and then it starts warming up, and I’m excited. I don’t like hot weather at all, and I have terrible seasonal allergies, but the sunshine is a nice trade-off 🌞 Are you looking forward to the new month?

just finishedAs I mentioned in my TBR post a few weeks ago, I decided to join Misty in her goal of reading 29 books in February, and I’m surprised to say this, but I’m at 28 books so far! I’ll just have to finish one more today, and while I could’ve gone ahead and read another really short novella from KU last night, I decided to wait and hopefully finish one of my “full-sized” current reads today. 😅 If I don’t manage that, I’m sure I’ll just pick one of my 50-100 page horror stories on my kindle tonight.

It was a good reading week for the most part! I had one big disappointment with The Fine Print, but everything else was good (or, at least, quick enough to not matter). Misty and I finished catching up on the Wayward Children series and we buddy read Butcher & Blackbird, which I could easily see going down as a favorite of the year!

📚 current reads 📚

Not only am I still breaking my rule with how many current reads I have, but I also broke my rule of making progress on each current read every week! 🤦‍♀️ I’ll do better next week, I’m determined!

and everything else I started playing a new release called Supermarket Simulator that I found randomly on Steam a few days ago and I am OB. SESSED. 😂 It’s the most delightful, mindless little game where you run a tiny supermarket and it’s so fun. I’ve been playing it while listening to audiobooks a lot this week!

What are you reading right now, or what did you recently finish? Is anything exciting happening in your life? Let me know in the comments!

    1. Congratulations in your challenge – 29 is amazing!!
      I have a similar problem with having too many reads on the go at once too though.

    1. I’m so glad you joined me in this challenge this month and yay for both of us accomplishing it. I think this is going to become an every February thing for me.

    1. I’m also very excited and ready for spring! ♥ I’m ready for the sunshine, the warmer weather, flowers, going hiking in the lush green forests… So ready for spring to be here already! You had such a good reading time too! I see you read Skeleton Song 👀 You know I’m going to want the details on that! ♥

    1. Me and my friends came so close to us all three buying a copy of Butcher & Blackbird and starting like a monthly book club since we’re all going to be in different cities, etc. So happy to see you enjoyed it. I’m gonna push for us to actually have a book club and for that to be our first book haha.

Say hello! ♥
