It’s definitely been a minute since I updated! I thought I’d have more free time come summer, and while that’s true, I underestimated how much I would just want to rest. I worked at my school summer camp last month, which was a blast, but also exhausting. My old car from 2003 also finally gave up, so I was on the hunt to lease something. I finally decided on a white Volkswagen Tiguan and I’ve been really enjoying it so far. Other than that, it’s been a relatively uneventful summer, hanging out with my friends, working on creative outlets, making and jarring jam, and catching up on my Goodreads challenge. How are all of you? What have you been up to this summer?
WHAT I READ LAST WEEK:
I’ve been in a kind of dark, murder mystery / horror mood when it comes to reading. Most recently, I read Megan Abbott’s latest book, The Turnout, which was a 3-star read for me. I love her writing, but this was definitely not my favorite by her. I also impulse read the comic, It Eats What Feeds It, on Hoopla. It was short, but I really enjoyed the illustration and Southern gothic horror setting. The Final Girl Support Group is the first book I’ve read by Grady Hendrix and I really liked it. Despite not being too into the slasher genre (I prefer scary books over movies), I was still able to enjoy it without knowing all the references.
WHAT I’M READING NOW:
I’m finally, finally starting A Master of Djinn by P. Djeli Clark. I like his writing and I’ve been really looking forward to this book, but I’ve been doing a lot of mood-reading, so I’ve put it off.
WHAT I’M READING NEXT:
What are you guys reading? Have you read any of these books? How’s your summer going? Leave me a comment and…
Until next time,
