It’s time for a weekly check-in!
Okay, first of all, how the hell is Christmas a couple of days away?! It feels like the first half of December dragged a little bit but the past couple of weeks have just rocketed on by! I can’t believe next week’s weekly check-in will be the last one of 2022. I have so much left that I want to read before the month ends! 😅 Ah, well, I’m not going to bust my ass too hard because, honestly, 2022’s been a doozy of a year and we could all use a little rest and self-care if you ask me.
For anyone reading this who celebrates winter holidays, what are you looking forward to most—or if you already celebrated a winter holiday, what was your favorite thing about it? And either way, I hope you’re all having a beautiful holiday season and getting all the love and peace you deserve! 🥰
You know those weeks where you feel like you read a LOT, and then you look back and see that you totally didn’t read as much as you thought? Yeah… 😅
- Housecat Trouble // Mason Dickerson ⭐⭐⭐⭐
- I’ll Be Gone in the Dark // Michelle McNamara ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- A Very Scalzi Christmas // John Scalzi ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- Our Dark Duet // V.E. Schwab ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I usually only highlight my priority reads in this section, but since we’re almost at the end of the year—and my goal is to finish 2022 with as few current reads leftover as possible—I’m going to put all of my current reads here for this week and next week’s check-in! I’m also including the four books I hope to start this week, because I wouldn’t be “me” without having way too ambitious of a list to possibly get anywhere near completing during the next week and a half. 😂

No movies or TV this week, but I did spend quite a lot of time re-playing PowerWash Simulator levels while listening to audiobooks!
