Another Monday. Another new week! I’ve been struggling with my mental health lately which is why the blog has been a bit quiet this week but I have a mental health evaluation today so hopefully they can help!
I did somehow manage to finish two books last week but I’m still struggling with a few other titles I started for October.
What I read;
| You by Caroline Kepnes
Amazon* | Goodreads
I finally finished the audiobook of YOU by Caroline Kepnes and I started the show on Netflix. But I’ve only gotten like half way through the first episode cause well.. toddler. If it’s not Paw Patrol or Daniel Tiger she won’t sit quietly. I LOVED this audiobook! I loved being in Joe’s head. I loved how the author manage to make you feel sorry for Joe. I absolutely hated Peach and Beck honestly. I have so many things to say about Beck. I was really cheering for Karen.
I rated it 4 stars and probably one of my favorite reads of 2020. Review coming soon!
| Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate
Amazon* | Goodreads
This was a middle grade read my husband got for me a while back. It’s about a kid in a stressful situation and suddenly this imaginary cat friend shows up. When I overly stress, aware of it or not, I hallucinate small things. Mostly a black cat that likes to stare at me from doorways and flick it’s tail around. It started in Dec of 2014 when I had a mental breakdown from my ex husband lying and not coming home. My husband now has never ever made me feel crazy or think that this cat follows me around insane. So he got me this book as a comfort read. And I absolutely love that he did.
I love middle grade books that have super hard topics and this is definitely one of them. There were so many times my heart broke for these kids. The reason why I rated it 3 stars is because of the ending.
Goodreads Reading Challenge 2020;
Finishing 2 books this week put me at 17 books for 2020 out of my goal for 20. Thankfully I’m on track. I know my goal is super low this year but I wanted to be realistic. As small the goal, I’m super excited I’m finally on track!
What I Plan On Reading;
Tbh, I don’t know!
Here are a few options of what I plan on choosing from. I’m disappointed I’m struggling so hard with Unmade considering how much I love the Lynburn bois, esp Jared. And I hate how Ash is growing on me. But I really hate how much I’m struggling with this read. This is what I get for taking 7 years to finish the series.
The Invisible Life of Addie Laure, The Midnight Library and The Haunting of Beatrix Greene (cause I read everything by Rachel Hawkins) are high on my pick up list but I have no idea what I’m in the mood for!
What did you finish last week? What are you currently reading? Let me know in the comments below!

Just finished reading The Glass House, which I borrowed from my local library’s digital catalogue – really enjoyed it, it was a decent drama. Just started a reread of The Subtle Knife in preparation for the new series that’s started on BBC
So many books are turning into TV shows/movies! I can’t keep up anymore lol
