It’s time for a weekly check-in!
I’ve been doing “WWW Wednesday” posts for a while, but posting it on a specific day every week doesn’t always work for me, and I wanted to switch things up a little, so I’m changing these over to a “weekly check-in” where I’ll talk about what I’m reading, what I’ve finished reading lately, a little life update, and maybe some other non-bookish stuff like movies I’ve watched or games I’m playing a lot of! (It also gave me a good excuse to play around with a new graphic art pack I bought!)
It was a really good week in our home! We had a few good things happening with my spouse (they got a better work schedule that starts next week, along with a few other good things working out for them), we had a few cozy rainy days, I got a lot of extra work done yesterday which means I get to start my weekend a little early this week, I fixed my sleep schedule, and in general it’s just been a nice past few days. ♥
I finished two of my reads, including one buddy read that I had fallen behind on, which helps me work towards my June goal of catching up on all of my buddy reads!
- Furiously Happy // Jenny Lawson (REVIEW)
- Her Soul for Revenge // Harley Laroux (RTC)
I’m slowly but surely lowering this number, yay! I set aside Vespertine – I was LOVING it, but I needed to re-start it because I had set it down for a while (I just got distracted by other things), and then when I found out Caro hadn’t read it yet, we decided to read it together in July! I’m just putting it back on my TBR shelf until our buddy read.

A new Fortnite season started over the weekend, so I’ve been playing that a fair bit, and a new season of the Netflix game show The Floor is Lava came out last Friday. 😂 My 5-year-old son is OBSESSED with the show, so he’s been very excited about the new episodes lol! If you haven’t seen it and you like silly game shows, it’s actually pretty entertaining and our whole family has gotten into it. 😂
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!

I have no idea how you read that many books at once, but I’m always impressed. ALWAYS.
Haha, thank you! I need to get back down to a more feasible number soon, but I always have to have at least a few going at the same time!
I also read a few books at the same time. The minimum is usually one graphic novel, one fiction, one nonfiction, but it is often more than that. Number for me fluctuates as I see something new to add, finish one or two. I currently have 5 going. Best and keep on blogging.
I’m glad I’m not the only one who needs to keep multiple reads going at once! 🙂 Thank you. Happy reading!
Glad it was a good week! It’s been raining here too and that provides me a perfect excuse to stay in and read more ha! I read Sleeping Giants a couple years ago but haven’t read the others in the series yet. Hope you’re enjoying it!
Thank you, Greg! I love the rainy weather. We’re expecting some rain this week, but it’s supposed to be very hot, so not the kind of rainy days I like, lol. Ah, well. Sleeping Giants was wonderful and I’ve already ordered the next book! 😀
I’m so glad you guys had a great week and you can start your weekend early!! I hope you are enjoying Shadow of the Gods! I have had Sleeping Giants on my TBR for far too long!! Have a lovely week! <3
Thank you, Leslie! Shadow of the Gods has been good so far, and Sleeping Giants was AMAZING! I highly recommend it! <3
Glad to hear you had such a good week! Its a nice feeling when things all go well~! 🙂
Thank you, lovely! It really is! 🥰 I hope your week is going well!
[…] Giants – This is a buddy read with Destiny. I’ve been wanting to read this one for a while now especially since it was compared to […]

So hyped for our upcoming buddy read! 💕 I have seen the Floor is Lava show on Netflix and was debating watching it, as it sounds like fun 👀
I’m so excited, too! 😀 And Floor is Lava is honestly so funny if you like silly game shows like that. It makes me miss Wipeout, if you ever saw that?
I have never heard of Wipeout, but the Floor is Lava slightly reminds me of Ninja Warrior, just more strategic 😄
Oh yes, also similar to that! I haven’t seen Ninja Warrior in forever, but I used to like watching that, too. 😄
Glad to see such a lovely life update! And that your family is having so much with that show, I haven’t seen it but maybe I’ll check it out 🙂
Thank you, Kit! It’s been a blast. 🙂 I hope your weekend is going well!
