Recent Updates and Currently Reading | December 15

I skipped my update last week. My son was sick, and I was exhausted. I didn't have it in me to catch up on things so this post will cover the last two weeks!

This weekend was birthday weekend for my youngest. We took friends with us to one of the jump places, out to eat, and back to our house for a sleepover. I'm exhausted this weekend, too. 😂 It was a lot of fun, though. These are great kids!!

I'm trying to decide my TBR for the rest of the year. Everything seems so important! Do you have any "must reads" before the year ends? I definitely want to read the second novella in A Lush and Seething Hell by John Hornor Jacobs. I also want to try Bunny by Mona Awad again before the year is up. And then there's Ninth House... You get what I'm saying.

Posted Last Week


I posted my ⭐⭐⭐★★ review of The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan.

Finished Reading


The Eye of the World (The Wheel of Time #1) by Robert Jordan Starsight (Skyward #2) by Brandon Sanderson Still Life (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache #1) by Louise Penny
Summer Frost (Forward Collection #2) by Blake Crouch The Dead Girls Club by Damien Angelica Walters Monster, She Wrote: The Women Who Pioneered Horror and Speculative Fiction by Lisa Kröger and Melanie R. Anderson

The Eye of the World (The Wheel of Time #1) by Robert Jordan ⭐⭐⭐★★ - I finally finished my read of The Eye of the World. It was good, but I'm not sucked in to the series just yet.

Starsight (Skyward #2) by Brandon Sanderson ⭐⭐⭐⭐★ - This series is so much fun!

Still Life (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache #1) by Louise Penny ⭐⭐⭐★★ - This month's book club read. I don't usually read cozy mysteries, but I enjoyed it.

Summer Frost (Forward Collection #2) by Blake Crouch ⭐⭐⭐★★ - Summer Frost was OK.

The Dead Girls Club by Damien Angelica Walters ⭐⭐⭐⭐★ - I loved this!

Monster, She Wrote: The Women Who Pioneered Horror and Speculative Fiction by Lisa Kröger and Melanie R. Anderson ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - I have so much love for this book.

  1. You sure know how to throw a party. The kids and their parents made out on that one. Gold star for you mom! I can understand being tired after all that.

  3. My reading has been down and there are a ton of books I'd like to get to before the end of the year. I'm probably not going to get to any of them lol.

    I love the look of Walking to Aldebaran, and Ten tHousand Doors of January is one I wanna get too.

  4. I want to read Ninth House too! But I feel like I should be reading overdue review books instead😥 Maybe I'll try to mix it up😁

    Wishing you a great reading week

  6. I'm so curious on your thoughts on Bunny. As you know, it wasn't my fave. Sounds like the birthday went well though. I think this time of year is exhausting!

  8. I'm glad you made it through the weekend! I'm loving Dead Girls Club too. It's just my kind of creepy thriller.
