It’s time for a weekly check-in!
Hi, friends! Happy August! I love August and the first 2 days of the month treated me really well. 🥰 We’ve had some nice cooler temps at night, so we had evening car rides with the windows down to enjoy it the past two nights, and yesterday, we went shopping and I found a ton of gorgeous Halloween decor! I’m hoping that this is a good sign for the rest of the month. We originally planned on spending today at the theme park we have season passes for, but the radar’s showing a ton of rain, so I’m hoping it’s just a quiet, cozy day of working at home, reading, and enjoying the sound of the rain on the roof. 🖤
Apparently, buddy reading FantasticLand with Reg helped me through the worst of my Fourth Wing hangover, because I read a lot last week! Sadly, Witch King was a DNF (but I read well over half of it, so I rated it and marked it as a completion, because treat yo’ self, you know?). On the upside, FantasticLand was awesome!

📚 current reads 📚
Yes, I still forgot to continue The Jasad Heir this week, but in my defense, look at all these incredible reads I have going on at the same time 😅 (and yes, I know I’m breaking my 6 concurrent reads rule, but it’s just because I started a VERY impromptu group read of Out There Screaming yesterday!)
- Dracula Daily // Matthew Kirkland & Bram Stoker → 22%
- House of Sky and Breath // Sarah J. Maas → 81%
- The Jasad Heir // Sara Hashem → 1%
- King of Scars // Leigh Bardugo → 34%
- Getting it On with Gargoyles // Hazel Mack → 30%

I still haven’t had that horror movie marathon I’ve been craving, buuuut I did re-watch the first 3 Fast and Furious movies, so it’s something.
Heads up: you can always friend me on Letterboxd if you wanna see my movie mini reviews!
