Weekly Check-in: this month continues to be wildly busy and ya girl is sleepy

October 20, 2023

weekly check-in

It’s time for a weekly check-in!

life update

I’m finishing this post at 4:30 in the morning because everything has been sheer CHAOS this entire month and I needed one night to stay up late and read and catch up on things, plus my sleep schedule is wrecked from pushing myself too hard for the past 9 days straight, resulting in a very long nap today. 😅 I regret nothing, but I might feel differently when my alarm goes off. Seriously though, this month has been absolutely wonderful but it’s also been the busiest month I’ve had since 2019, if I had to guess, and I am absolutely EXHAUSTED. I just need a few days to sleep. Also, how is it already 2/3 of the way through October?! Who allowed this?! 😭

just finishedMy October reading continues to be a roller coaster! I loved The Last Haunt and The September House (TSH might end up in my top 5 faves of 2023), but There’s No Way I’d Die First was probably one of the worst things I’ve read all year. 😅 I hated it so much. You can click the title to see my rant review on Goodreads, or wait until next week and I’ll probably post it on this blog.

📚 current reads 📚

Uh oh, I’m back up to 8 current reads. 😬 Plus I’m starting Partying With Pixies today AND I meant to start The Book of Witches last night, but I’ll start that today instead. The good news, though, is that half of these are audiobooks and I’m thinking I can hopefully finish at least 2 or 3 this weekend. 🤞

and everything else We finally watched NOPE and it was just as delightful as you all said it was. ♥👽

    1. The September House is probably going to make my top five too, it was such a surprise, right?

    1. So happy to see you didn’t like There’s No Way I’d Die. I was part of the blog tour when it came out and god I hated it so much 😭 but haven’t seen anyone else feel the same. The bit with the clown and that bloody bag. I couldn’t take it seriously after that!

    1. Oh no, I hope you can take some time to unwind soon! ❤️ This month flew by and I’m so sad the spooky time is over soon 😭 (though I’m tempted to extend things a bit 😂) Sorry to hear that you didn’t like There’s No Way I’d Die First! It wasn’t high up on my TBR, but I had been considering if I should read it!

Say hello! ♥
