January Wrap Up (Weeks One & Two)

So this is the first of my new style of Wrap Up's! And, unfortunately, it's late. I've been having some mental health and stress related problems that have kept me from both reading and blogging as a whole. I wish I could say things are looking up, but I'd have to say they just don't look like they're going to be getting any worse, which is in itself a positive. As of writing this, I'm feeling a lot better than I did yesterday and the day before, so we'll see how long this bout of trouble lasts me.

Otherwise, not much has been going on. School has, overall, been pretty good, and classes are interesting in the very least. Before the mental health troubles I was reading a lot more than I expected I would be, so that's always a good sign! I hope everyone else has been having a great start to the new year and I'm sorry if my absence has been felt, I'm going to try and get back to regular posting and visiting blogs this week and hopefully I won't be knocked off that plan any time soon.

Books Finished
Star Wars: Showdown on Smuggler's Moon
But Then I Came Back
The Killing Joke
I adored But Then I Came Back and Caraval (both ARCs) and Caraval for sure will be making it into my favorite books of the year, even though it's only January. Really, when this one comes out you will need to pick it up immediately. Shiver was a fun reread, though it doesn't hold up quite as much as I would have wished. I did end up crying at the end of it, because it's just so beautiful on the final pages and it brought me back to a simpler time and place.

Currently Reading
I'm in the midst of Gilded Cage (an ARC) and while I'm enjoying it I don't think it's what I had a taste for at the moment. I'm only about a fourth of the way through, though, so we'll see if my mood changes as the week progresses.




Coming Soon
Tuesday-- Mini Reviews of The Jungle Book & Sing
Thursday-- College Journey
Friday-- Review of The Killing Joke
Saturday-- Review of Eddie the Eagle
Next Sunday-- Mini Reviews of Florence Foster Jenkins & Cafe Society
Next Tuesday-- Caraval Review
Next Thursday-- College Journey
Next Saturday-- Wrap Up #2

So, yep, that's all for me this week! Here's to a better next to week and me trying to get myself (and my blog) back together! Have a wonderful week, everyone.


  1. I'm sorry you've been feeling crappy! If you ever need to talk, you can DM me. I've been pretty sick with stress and other stuff lately too. Hopefully things start to look up.

    1. Thank you :) And thank you :) That means a lot. Hopefully things start to look up for you as well. I blame this time of year it always seems dreary and then you toss in the political things and it gets worse... ugh that and life just getting so full.


Thank you so much for commenting! I love to hear from you and try to respond to comments once or twice a week. Thank you for your patience :)
