Another super busy week but I finally feel like I am getting caught up! I am mostly caught up in the office, my house work is mostly caught up (as much as can be in a construction zone) and I am relatively back on track with my reading.  I am behind on writing reviews and getting those posts up but I am not too worried about it right now.  We have had a bit of an shake up in our schedules, due to an accident at work (luckily those involved will recover) my husband is back on night shift and working an insane amount of hours every week. 

Between him once again being knocked off day shift, the high temperatures and missing a furry cuddle buddy, I was in a bit of a funk this weekend. I started DNFing a few books and was in the mood to purge a lot of extra stuff, so I decided to go through my TBR.  I unhauled 25 books off my TBR shelves, I DNFed 2 books, and then I decided to Try a Chapter on book subscription box books that I had waiting from this year.  Of the 8 books I tried a chapter on I decided 4 of them weren't for me.  So just this weekend alone I have unhauled 31 books from my TBR, this actually felt really good, but it also brought to light that much of the books and items in subscription boxes I am not using. I have a couple of boxes already pre-ordered (especially for Capturing the Devil and Darkdawn in September) and a couple of 3 month subscriptions to run out but other than those I think I am over the book box craze. I always have a tendency to get sucked back in with FOMO (fear of missing out) so I will probably unfollow most of the boxes as the subscriptions run out.

So with all this going on I have kind of gotten back into the swing of things with my reading. I am still a little behind on requested reviews and the Medievalathon but I am feeling rather accomplished.  I hope I can keep the momentum going through this week!

How is your reading week going? Would you recommend your most recent read?


  1. Looks like you've had a great week! I really need to go through my TBR and unhaul some books; I was browsing through it earlier and found way too many I can't even remember putting on there. Happy reading!

    1. I have definitely let me TBR get completely out of control. I don't mind having a lot of books to choose from but lately the 300+ physical books have gotten overwhelming. It does feel good to go through and just be honest with myself that I probably won't be picking up a certain book.
