It’s time for a weekly check-in!
Well, Twitter is even more of a dumpster fire than usual, but the silver lining to that (and election anxiety) is that I’ve spent a lot of time working on blog stuff, reading, and cleaning my house this week! 🤷♀️
I finished two of last week’s priority reads and I made progress on a lot of my longer current reads! I was in a big horror mood this week (when am I not?), as you can see from the fact that every book I finished over the past week was a horror book!
- Return to the Black Farm // Elias Witherow ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- Something is Killing the Children, Vol. 4 & Vol. 5 // James Tynion IV ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- The Evil Dead: 40th Anniversary Edition // Mark Verheiden ⭐⭐⭐⭐
- Blanky // Kealan Patrick Burke ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- The Closet, Vol. 1 // James Tynion IV ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- The Lake House // Sarah Beth Durst ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- Found: An Anthology of Found Footage Horror Stories // Andrew Cull & Gabino Iglesias ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
For now, this section every week will be dedicated to the 3 books that I have the least pages remaining in!

We got to watch Terrifier 2 a few nights ago (FINALLY!), and while I do love the first movie better, it was still so much fun. I think it might be the most violent, gruesome movie I’ve ever seen, but I feel like I’m forgetting something, so maybe not. If you’ve seen it, though—the scene with Art trying on sunglasses behind Sienna? Literally one of my favorite scenes in cinematic history. 😂
To avoid traumatizing some of you with screenshots of a scary AF clown, I’ll also tell you that I’ve been obsessed with the adorable game Cat Cafe Manager (thank you, Malli!) and need everyone to play it ASAP. LOOK AT IT. You run a cafe where you adopt stray cats and they make people happy while they enjoy their food and drinks! 🥺
Heads up: you can always friend me on Letterboxd if you wanna see my movie mini reviews!
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!

Yaaaaassssss! The Lake House was soooooo good! I’m still trying to figure out how I want to write my review for it. Also, so excited that you’ve been playing Cat Cafe Manager! It’s so cute, cozy, and satisfying. I need to poke my head in and see what they’ve done for fall and go see if they have any plans for winter updates!
The Lake House was amazing! I can’t wait to read your review and I loved buddy reading it with you both. Cat Cafe Manager has been a blast! So precious!!
I’m currently holding off on my review since the book is being published through Harper. But I’m so eager to release it. Like twitching fingers, ready to smash that button lol 😂 All the buddy reads please! Yeeesssss! I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying it. I love gravitating to cozy, precious games!
Thank you for not posting a clown! Lmao 🤣😂 But it’s also nice seeing you reading so much again. I’ve added several of these to my tbr! I’m looking forward to your big wrap up coming up!
Haha!!! You’re welcome! 😂😂 And thank you so much for the kind words!
Twitter lol. What a mess! The Cryptid book looks fun!
It really is a mess, lol! The Cryptids book has been an absolute blast. 🙂 It has such a fun writing style to it, and isn’t dry or slow at all.
