Weekly Check-in: is it really Friday already?

weekly check-in

It’s time for a weekly check-in!

life update

Whoops, is it really Friday and I haven’t posted anything on my blog all week? Yikes! Given that I have a million tags to catch up on AND lots of reviews I need to post on here, I’m not proud of that haha. It wasn’t even a matter of not feeling up to it; it was just one of those weeks where time totally eluded me. I think it’s because this is my first full week on my new work schedule (working short shifts Mon-Fri instead of my previous schedule of 3 long shifts and working weekends), and any kind of major change to my daily routine always throws me off. Isaac starts homeschooling for 1st grade on Monday, too, so I’m sure next week will be just as chaotic for my brain, if not more so. 😅 Wish us luck!

just finished

I finished a couple of buddy reads this week (Waking Gods & Little Eve) and they were so good!

Okay, the overwhelm is kicking back in, so I REALLY need to make a lot of progress on this soon. 😅 I have two books that are “on hold” until finishing other current reads, so I removed those from the list for now.

and everything else

I watched a few horror films over the past week: one I hadn’t seen since its release (Ginger Snaps), and two I hadn’t ever seen at all: Night of the Living Dead (1968) and Lake Placid. I love finally watching older horror flicks I haven’t seen before but have always heard about, and getting to see what the hype is about. It was really neat to go so far back into the zombie genre and see one of the original takes on it. I have a whole list on Letterboxd that I’m compiling of older (pre-1990ish) horror flicks I need to watch or re-watch, so if you have any favorites to recommend, please do!

    1. I’m so glad you loved Little Eve! I may have to read it early, I’m so excited😁

    1. I’ve also been watching a bunch of pre-1990s horror movies! Most recent ones I watched and really enjoyed: House on Haunted Hill (1959), Black Sunday (1960), Night School (1981), and Chopping Mall (1986). For an early 90s rec, I watched In the Mouth of Madness (1994) for the first time a couple of months ago and loooooved it.

    1. WHAT IS TIME AND WHY IS THERE LESS OF IT!?!?! Looks like you had a good reading week and I love that for you! My library hold for What Moves the Dead just broke free, I might try to read it today as I’m taking a MH day.
