I was sick but not with like a fever. It was mostly body aches, migraine and fatigue. B had been coughing for a few days and he swore he wasn’t sick, despite openly coughing all over the house. Well 2 days ago he then says “I don’t feel all that good, what if it’s Covid.” I must had dropped everything I was doing to stare at him for asking such a stupid question.
Then you get tested and quarantine?!
Then he said maybe I got him sick cause my throat was scratchy earlier last week. Yeah and I spit out a tonsil stone. But Tums hasn’t slowed down or been any extra fussy, so whatever we got she didn’t. Or hasn’t. Or she just doesn’t care, though last time she had the flu she was pretty miserable. So I’d think she’d show some kind of apathy towards running around like a crazy person all day long.
So, that’s why I’ve been away-ish. I just didn’t have the energy or the mind set to really post anything. I feel better now, but still kind of drained and really hungry even though it’s 350am. I’ve been up for like, 2 hours. And my lower back where I usually have pain is like, throbbing. It’s so annoying. I haven’t gotten adjusted in 3 weeks so… yeah.
My reading has also slowed down which sucks. But hey it comes and goes, when it’s here it’s great. So let’s focus on that.
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.
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!
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!
