My Bookish Week 10/24/20

Hi there! So I guess I might be back after spontaneously quitting in the middle of August. Life and grief and depression and anxiety and single widowed parenting and the pandemic and financial struggles all got in the way big time. Also I hate the new block editor here and that made trying to come back when things settled down a little an even harder choice to make. 

There is no catching up 2 months of reading updates fully, but since my last post I’ve read another 49 books bringing my yearly total up to 163 so far. I’ve acquired another 145 books. And I’m in the middle of 40 other books. 

Highlights of my reading in the last two months include:

  • Anxious People by Fredrik Backman, my new favorite book of all time. I’m planning a reread of it as my first read of 2021.
  • Well Played by Jen DeLuca. I loved this just as much as the first book from the series and can’t wait for book three to come out. 
  • Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers by Grant Naylor was just as much fun as the Red Dwarf TV show my late husband loved so much.

 Of the books I’m currently reading, some favorites at the moment are:

Hopefully I’ll find myself posting something else soon. I’ve missed you all.

  1. Hi Lori, I’ve missed you too. How’s Pepper doing? I am so glad you’re back! I am going through my own sadness right now as my aunt passed away suddenly in September. I am doing Dewey’s 24 hour readathon this weekend. I’ve posted the mini challenges on my blog. I did 2 cohost posts and was a Goodreads moderator for an hour. I’m tired but it was well worth it. The pandemic and future worries are causing me anxiety. I still got through 2 books this weekend. Take care and looking forward to your posts. I have heard so much about the novel Anxious People. Need a copy.

    1. Hi! Pepper is doing great. She lost her first teeth, finally decided to potty train and is rocking it (she went from full time pullups to full time underwear from one minute to the next), and she’s starting some art lessons she is very excited for. I’m surviving and trying to keep life together for both of us.

      I’m sorry to hear about your aunt 🙁 Sending virtual hugs to you ♥️

      I’m back to blogging and Instagram on a tentative basis, with no schedule, to keep everything as fun and stress free as possible, but will hopefully have some sort of content posted at least weekly here.


      1. Great to hear all your news. Congrats to Pepper. Thanks for the virtual hugs. I am suffering some burnout from book blogging and worries but my husband is being amazing. We’ve been married a year and a half. I have always loved books but maybe I’ll have to accept less blog tours or something, I have over 2,000 books in my NetGalley account.
