Total books for the year: 67 of 85. I’m back on track with my reading goal, according to Goodreads. I did a lot of audiobook listening this week, but I’m also nearly done with The All-New Sequel part of Hocus Pocus. I haven’t been feeling well most of the weekend, and have had a terrible headache, so I’m still limiting my screen time.

Total books for the year: 63 of 85. I am three books behind schedule, according to Goodreads, and I am trying to catch up. I’m doing what I can to limit my screen time across all of my devices and deliberately choosing to pick up a book instead. It seems to be working so far 🙂

Total books for the year: 61 of 85. I don’t think I’ve ever read so little in one week since I started this blog. What have I been doing with my time? Working, listening to podcasts, watching “Supernatural.” I’ve also been getting to bed later than usual instead of my normal 30 minutes early so I can relax with a good book. Hopefully, I will get back to my normal routine this week.

Total books for the year: 59 of 85. I finished “A Series of Unfortunate Events”, and the Boyfriend and I also finished the show on Netflix. As you can see, I’m now working my way through the other related books. I ordered The Beatrice Letters and will hopefully have it in my hands by the time I finish The Unauthorized Autobiography. It’s not a huge deal if I don’t, since it’s not like I don’t have plenty of other books I can read until then.

I might have mentioned this already, but I’m trying to finish “A Series of Unfortunate Events” so that The Boyfriend and I can watch the final season of the show on Netflix. I stayed up a little bit past my normal bedtime last night just so I could finish The Penultimate Peril.

The Boyfriend and I also adopted a kitten so that Dresden will have a friend, but he’s very shy. He’s nearly 4 months old, and he found the tiniest, quietest spot in the bedroom closet.

Tomorrow is the first day of #FrightFall and #SomeithingWickedFall, and I got so excited about it that I went to a bookstore on Saturday and bought The Folcroft Ghosts and The Haunting of Gillespie House, both by Darcy Coates. I started reading The Folcroft Ghosts while I sipped on a smoothie. I had read highly positive reviews of some other books by Coates, but I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was.
