It’s time for a weekly check-in!
I missed a week again, but my site was down for the past few days! I switched hosting with SiteGround over to Bluehost, and I’m glad (so much cheaper & MUCH better tech support so far), but migrating hosts comes with a bit of down time. The whole time it was down, all I wanted to do was write posts! 😭
In the meantime, I stayed busy over the weekend with rearranging and painting. We’ve been wanting to paint most of our house for years and never done it, so we finally got to work on it a few weeks ago! It’s been a fun bonding experience and it’s made me enjoy our home so much more. ♥ The weekend project was the kitchen: we painted it a pale blue, with a black accent wall behind the stove, and it looks really cool! It reminds me of a fun little bistro, lol.
At some point this week, I’m planning on painting my “library” room green and doing some rearranging — I’ll share a photo when it’s done!
All the spooky and atmospheric reads lately, and most of these were buddy reads! I’ve been doing so many buddy/group reads lately and really enjoying them. I read Rules for Vanishing with Ashley, Kingdom of the Wicked with Jordyn, and The Haunting of Leigh Harker with the TBR & Beyond facebook group!
- Rules for Vanishing // Kate Alice Marshall ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- Kingdom of the Wicked // Kerri Maniscalco ⭐⭐⭐⭐
- Beautiful Atrocities // Ross Jeffery ⭐⭐⭐⭐
- The Haunting of Leigh Harker // Darcy Coates ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I mentioned in my last post that I’m starting to feel a little overwhelmed by my current reads again, but over the past week, I realized the overwhelm doesn’t come from the number of current reads I have so much as it comes from writing this list every week and feeling like I don’t have enough updates to offer. 😅 I think I came up with a compromise I’m really going to like, though: instead of listing ALL of my current reads every week, I’ll list the three books I would most like to finish over the coming week! (I’ll also add a “total current reads” counter at the bottom of the list, though, just for anyone who’s curious.)
📚 priority reads 📚
- The Radium Girls // Kate Moore → 21%
- House of Earth and Blood // Sarah J. Maas → 43%
- Beanstalker and Other Hilarious Scarytales // Kiersten White → 21%
📚 total current reads: 12 📚
We started watching Schitt’s Creek this week after we’d been talking about watching it for ages, and oh my gosh, HOW did I not watch this show sooner?! It’s quickly become a favorite in our home and we laugh SO freaking hard at every episode. We’re 7-8 episodes into the first season and I can’t pick a favorite character because I just love them ALL, but if I had to pick, it would probably be David just because Dan Levy’s facial expressions are the most priceless.
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!
