Happy Sunday, bibliophiles! I hope this week has treated you all well.
It’s nice to be back to blogging, and I think I’m finally back in the right headspace academic-wise to be back again. I mentioned a little of what I’ve been up to in my back from the void post, but it’s definitely been a good week.
Aside from…well, y’know, having to write lab reports and take some tests at the end of the week, it was a good week leading up to break. Lately, my weeks have revolved around the new episodes of Fargo coming on Monday nights, and Noah Hawley blessed us with “East/West,” which was, without question, my favorite episode of the season. So that’s been on my mind for the whole week. I read some decent books from the library, and got a bunch more when I went back on Thursday, so I’m fully stocked up for break. We watched Blood Simple on Friday night too, and that was thoroughly enjoyable.
Something I failed to mention (and probably shouldn’t have, since it would have made the post painfully long) in the last post was NaNoWriMo! I’m at about 70% to my goal of 35,000 words by the end of the month (I’m still in the Young Writer’s Program, so I’m working my way up to 50,000 so I’ll be prepared once I graduate). At this stage, I’m getting to a part in the WIP that I’m liking, but I’m worried that it’s going to be too short. I feel like this happens with everything that I write, so I suppose I’m prepared, but it’s still not a pleasant feeling. We’ll see how it goes.

Ooh, I’m excited to hear what you think of Clap When You Land. I really enjoyed it, and it was one of my fave books this past summer!!

(also, Savior Complex is my go-to sad girl jam — thank you for giving me an excuse to listen to it again! 😂 )

Thank you! I’m a huge fan of Acevedo’s other works, so it’s guaranteed four stars for me at least
YES PHOEBEEEEEEE 😭 that whole album was phenomenal, and I love the new Copycat Killer EP with the string instrumentation
