weekly check-in

It’s time for a weekly check-in!

life update

Hello, December! This week’s check-in is a day earlier than usual because I’m too lazy to type up my November recap post tonight (Tuesday night). Instead, you get an early check-in! 🤷‍♀️ It’s been a good week. We all got the flu last week, so that was rough, but we’re all feeling much better by now and it’s been a pretty chill week so far with a lot of work and reading. We do have big plans tomorrow to drive 3 hours each way to a special Christmas event my family has gone to every year since I was a toddler, so I’m looking forward to that, but also already looking forward to getting back home to my pets and cozy PJs. 😂 Do you have any family holiday traditions?

just finishedI don’t know how I managed such a great reading month, but look at this! I re-read my favorite book of all time, finished the Kingdom of the Wicked series (thanks Misty for buddy reading it with me!), and had two fantastic horror reads. I wonder if I’ll get this lucky again next week?!

📚 current reads 📚

I’m at 7 current reads right now, but I’m planning on finishing Elfhame with Misty today! I’m also buddy reading my spouse’s favorite book with them (Shadow) and started a buddy read of This Vicious Grace with Caro. I’m feeling so lucky to have all of these exciting buddy reads going on right now! 🥳

and everything else This week’s other media interests have mostly consisted of me obsessing over my usual faves: Ice Nine Kills. Have a seasonal song:

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!

    1. I read Pet Sematary for the first time this year, too! I honestly didn’t expect where the story was going to go; all I knew going in was that it was about a cat dying and coming back to life. I had NO idea how dark this book got. I really enjoyed the theme of death and if you could bring back your loved ones from the dead, would you, even if they’re not the same. Such a fascinating topic that really had me thinking, aside from being completely creeped out!

Say hello! ♥
