Recent Updates and Currently Reading | June 23

Summer is in full swing, and I'm struggling to settle into a new routine. This has really affected my reading, blogging, and checking out everyone's reviews.

I'm finally at home all weekend (except for going to see Toy Story 4 today!) so I plan to do a lot of catching up. Do you struggle with keeping up in the summer or is it easier for you?

Posted Last Week


Nothing. Send help!

Finished Reading



I Wrote This for You by Iain S. Thomas ⭐⭐★★★ - I liked a few poems in this collection, but mostly it wasn't my thing.

Five Midnights by Ann Dávila Cardinal - I'm hoping to write my review of Five Midnights today so keep an eye out this week for my thoughts.

Final Girls by Mira Grant - Emily and Alex are hosting a #PrideHorrorthon right now on Instagram, and Final Girls was my first selection for the weekend.



I'm still building up my Spanish reading skills. I finally finished reading Harry Potter y la cámara secreta (the Chamber of Secrets).

I also read the next Magic Treehouse book: El caballero del alba (The Knight at Dawn). I highly recommend these as easy Spanish readers. I was able to find them through my library on Overdrive.

I enjoyed reading this Introduction to Spanish Poetry. It contains both the Spanish version and the English translations.

Currently Reading



Osgood As Gone by Cooper S. Beckett - Several folks are reading Osgood As Gone for the #PrideHorrorthon right now. Many thanks to Cooper Beckett for offering to gift me a copy so I could read it as well. I'm enjoying it a lot!

Harry Potter y el Prisionero de Azkaban by J.K. Rowling, Adolfo Muñoz García (Translator), Nieves Martín Azofra (Translator) - Harry Potter is life.

La telaraña de Carlota by E.B. White, Guillermo Solana (Translator) - Azkaban and Charlotte's Web are two of my all time favorite books so I'm very comforted right now!

Recent Acquisitions



Monster, She Wrote: The Women Who Pioneered Horror and Speculative Fiction by Lisa Kröger and Melanie R. Anderson - I won this in a Goodreads giveaway, and it looks absolutely incredible. Thank you Quirkbooks!

Theme Music by T. Marie Vandelly - Emily highly recommended Theme Music so I requested a copy from Netgalley. Thank you to Dutton Books for the approval!

A Penny For Your Thoughts by Robert Ford and Matt Hayward - I preordered this after Tracy raved about it. I'm looking forward to reading it soon.

So what about you? Let me know what you're reading this week or leave me some links!

  2. I always try to keep up with visiting, at least my favorite blogs. I try to separate 30 minutes to an hour of full visiting blogs and commenting. It helps :) Enjoy Toy Story 4!

  7. Sounds like a pretty productive reading week! Final Girls sounds so good and I need to get my hands on it, ASAP. Also, one of my goals is to read Harry Potter in a language outside of English one day!

    1. I highly recommend using Harry Potter for language learning. It is very motivating (and so helpful to already know the story).

  10. Looking forward to your thoughts of Five Midnights. I've seen some mixed reviews, and I still have it in my review pile so I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to bump it up the TBR or bump it down.
