other obsessions

Still lots of ACNH and Sea of Thieves as far as gaming goes! Not too much TV this week, though I did rewatch a few horror films, which will be in my wrap at the end of the month. ? I’ve been on a rare movie kick lately.


life updates

Anxiety is pretty high again lately, and I just don’t know what to do with myself some days. Staying off of social media has been helping, but there’s only so much sticking my head in the sand can really do for me. I wish I could go back to how I felt a few weeks ago when I was able to dive into games and reading and family time, and stop fretting. How are you all doing? ♥

Just a horror aficionado/geek girl trying to juggle motherhood, reading, blogging, gaming, and everyday life.

    1. Glad you loved Burn our bodies down, I can’t wait to pick that one up!
      Enjoy your reading!


    1. I’ve heard so many great things about Girl, Serpent, Thorn. I got the Fairyloot box and its so pretty….now I need to dive in!

    1. sorry you’re struggling some! <3 this last week was a little tough for me, definitely lots of moodiness and difficulty focusing. here's hoping this week goes better for both of us. 🙂 congrats on all five-star reads, though!
