It’s time for a weekly check-in!
It’s been a really good week for the most part! Yesterday was a bit up and down (a fox got into the yard that we share with my parents – they live next-door – and got one of my mom’s turkeys, so we were all in a bit of a panic, fox-proofing nighttime setups for my ducks and her remaining turkeys yesterday), but otherwise, it was a really relaxing week. We put up the backyard above-ground pool and played in it, went for some nice walks, and I did a little online clothing shopping! It’s always a little nerve-wracking to order clothes online from a store you’ve never shopped at before, so cross your fingers for me 😅
All I have to say is that Hidden Pictures winning the Goodreads horror award for 2022 might be one of the most questionable, disappointing GRCA winners I’ve ever seen. 🙃
- Hidden Pictures // Jason Rekulak ⭐💫
- Sacred Lamb // Tim Seeley ⭐⭐
- The Asylum Confessions // Jack Steen ❌DNF❌
- City of Ghosts // V.E. Schwab ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (re-read)
- The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue // V.E. Schwab ⭐⭐⭐⭐
I don’t know what surprises me more: the fact that I read my entire May TBR, the fact that I still have “6 or less” current reads, or the fact that I’m re-reading Eragon as a buddy read right now. 😂 This is my first time in YEARS reading it, but I must have read this book 20 or 30 times as a kid!

Isaac was in a fantasy movie mood for a couple of days this week, so I watched Warcraft twice and Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves 4 or 5 times (I lost count, but honestly I adore this movie and have no complaints – it’s totally a new comfort film for me!). Chris Pine is comedic gold in this movie and I honestly don’t understand why it’s getting so much hate right now? 😅
Heads up: you can always friend me on Letterboxd if you wanna see my movie mini reviews!
