Weekly Progress Update!
Happy Sunday Universe!
How’s life been treating you? Good I hope!
I’ve been a little stressed this week, but I took off all yesterday to clear my head and just relax. I really need to get better at giving myself a break and not always moving at warp speed.
I do that with work and blogging, and it’s starting to physically take a toll on me (aka making me sick), so I have to find ways to prevent that from happening going forward.
I also have a move in less than two weeks, so that will take priority over everything. My roomie isn’t here and I doubt she will be before I move, so I need to get the apartment in tip-top shape. That being said, I am taking three days off around a weekend, so I’ll have a total of 5 days to get the new place in great shape and looking spiffy. Will definitely share photos, as I’ll have a book nook area that I’m really excited about!
Anyways, let’s get into the good stuff from this week, shall we?
This week was pretty decent for reading. I finished two books.
Animorphs #29.5 was great, plenty of action and scifi as well as some drama too.
Sons of Heaven was entertaining, though I did have a few quips about the pacing and overall plot of the book.
Still, I really enjoyed both books this week.
Next on my TBR is Exit Strategy by Martha Wells.
Technically I’m supposed to be reading Shutter first as a buddy read with Iseult Murphy, but it hasn’t come in the mail yet, so I’m gonna blaze through this while I can. If it’s anything like the other three I read, I bet it’ll be awesome!
This week I kind of slowed down a bit on the watching side, but truthfully I just got to busy to post two movie reviews. This week I watched:
While this film at first seemed really promising, it didn’t take long for me to see the flaws in it. I didn’t particularly care for it in the end, but who knows, maybe you’ll love it! Check out my review if you’d like to hear my opinion.
Girl On the Third Floor Review
Writing has been something of a struggle to find the time for (I nearly worked two full days of overtime this week), but I did manage to get the first chapter of the second act in good shape.
Looking forward to moving on to the next one this afternoon after working (yes, I’m working again. Not super happy, but not putting in a ton of time today I promise).
In the meantime, why not check out my debut novella Reaper?
Gregory and his little sister Imogen love spending Halloween with their parents. But this year is different. If he proves he can take care of Imogen all by himself, he’ll finally have the allowance he’s dreamed of.
That was before the basement door opened on its own. Before the strange door appeared in the basement and Imogen was taken from him by the monster.
Now everyone in town is blaming him for her disappearance, but no one is listening to his story. Where did the door come from? What was that creature? And most of all, can he find his sister before it’s too late, or will he bury his memories of her along with his parents?
That’s a Wrap!
All right, so that was it for my week. How did yours go? Did you do well on your writing and reading projects? Anything interesting you’d like to share?

The hubster and I are a quarter of the way through Rogue Protocol. You’re a book ahead of us. Moving is stressful, but it can be exciting, too. I hope you’ll love your new place.
Oh nice, I hope you love it!
I’m actually enjoying the cleaning and tidying up because that means less work for me later. I also found the perfect picture frames at big lots just now and am excited to fill them with my favorite book covers!
