Recent Updates and Currently Reading | December 21

I'm late posting my update for last week because honestly... I was too busy watching The Mandalorian finale for the 47th time. Don't judge me on how I spend my time.

I have been on such an amazing reading streak lately. If this could just continue on through 2021, that would be great! I have not made my best of 2020 list because I keep adding to my favorites. This is a great problem to have.

Posted Last Week

Finished Reading


In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren Be Wary of the Silent Woods (The Weirn Books #1) by Svetlana Chmakova
Fractured Tide by Leslie Lutz The Haunting by Lindsey Duga

In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren ⭐⭐★★★ - My review for In a Holidaze has already been posted if you'd like to check that out.

Be Wary of the Silent Woods (The Weirn Books #1) by Svetlana Chmakova ⭐⭐⭐⭐๐Ÿ’ซ - I loved this, and I can't wait for the next one!

Fractured Tide by Leslie Lutz ⭐⭐⭐๐Ÿ’ซ★ - I think I would have enjoyed this one more if I had read it over the summer.

The Haunting by Lindsey Duga ⭐⭐⭐๐Ÿ’ซ★ - This is a traditional ghost story that I would have loved as a kid.

I'll have reviews for the last three of these out really soon!


Currently Reading


Cradleland of Parasites by Sara Tantlinger The Hollow Places by T. Kingfisher

Cradleland of Parasites by Sara Tantlinger - This poetry collection is plague filled and terrifying, and I'm really enjoying it.

The Hollow Places by T. Kingfisher - AAHHH, I love this book so much so far. It's so genre blending, and I am so happy.


Added to the TBR


Into The Forest And All The Way Through by Cynthia Pelayo Fatherland by Robert Harris

Into The Forest And All The Way Through by Cynthia Pelayo - I'm really looking forward to this poetry collection by Cina Pelayo!

I picked up a couple of book club selections for next year: The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin and Fatherland by Robert Harris. I have the audio of The Fifth Season, but I really wanted to have a print copy as well. Bookworm problems.

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

  1. I loved The Hollow Places too, although not quite as much as The Twisted Ones. I'm curious to read your review of Fractured Tide๐Ÿ˜

  3. These are all new to me. I too like to have multiple versions of books. The print version is usually 3rd choice unless it is an author that I collect though. Audible and Kindle are my go-to formats. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    1. That is very interesting to me! You have so many books and shelves, I would have assumed you preferred print. :)

  4. Oh my gosh I just started The Mandalorian. Wow...

    I was kind of ambivalent about Fractured Tide too. some things I really liked, some things not so much...

    1. It sounds like the only cure for you right now is to watch Star Wars (and The Mandalorian) :)

  9. In the meantime, I wondered why I couldn’t think of the answer to this simple problem like this.

  10. Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!
