Blog #8: Where I’m at Right Now

Hey guys, I hope you’ve had a good weekend!

So, I’m going to be honest right now and say that I’ve been feeling pretty tired lately. I’ve been working more (and of course, it’s been busier at work), I’ve been doing Camp NaNoWrimo, I’ve been trying to post everyday for the Camp NaNoWrimo photo challenge on Instagram (you can see how that’s going @eclectic_erin87 🤣), and just generally trying to keep in touch with my friends and have a social life…

So, my brain now kind of feels like mush 🤣.

You can also tell because I am probably going to be using an overabundance of emojis in this post…

You’ve been warned.

Anyways, because of that, I felt like doing a more chatty blog post this week, because why the heck not? I almost considered taking this week off, but a part of me doesn’t want to because I like posting on here and working on my blog, it’s kind of nice. I can write about whatever I want, and just kind of ramble 👍

Anyways, here are the two books that I’m in the middle of reading:


Kissing Frogs by Rich Amooi



51pJCUVjZfLKissing Frogs is best described as that fun romantic comedy that you would watch ( or read in this case) when you feel like giving your brain a break, and don’t want to use too much brain power in the process. That may sound kind of harsh, but I actually really like that aspect of it! It’s a fun book to relax with during my lunch break, or if I’m tired and want to read something, but I don’t want to overthink what it is I’m reading. It’s basically a romance where two neighbors, Sarah and Ian, are falling in love, although Sarah is reluctant to indulge in these feelings because of past relationships. While that is happening, she is invited to a wedding of a friend, and is looking to online dating sites to help her find a date for the big day.

download (3)King of Scars is really enjoyable as well, as I love some good Leigh Bardugo stories! My only problem with it though, is that I didn’t read the Grisha Trilogy (I read Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom, but that’s it). So, during pretty much any chapter that isn’t Nina’s, I’m lost due to the many references to events and people from the Grisha Trilogy. My plan right now is to just finish King of Scars (I’m already into it enough where I just want to continue), but then read the Grisha Trilogy when I’m finished.

I also started a Good Reads account! (Thanks to a good friend of mine for persuading me🤣) If you want to follow, (or is it friend me? I still don’t know how that works), but if you’re interested in checking it out, here’s the link!

Mostly, I’ve been having fun going through and finding books I’ve read and adding it to my lists. So far, I’ve only done star reviews on there, because a lot of the books I’m rating are based off of memory, and since many of them I read a while ago, it’s more of, “I have remember liking this book/ hating this book while reading it, so it’s gonna get ____ amount of stars!”

I know, I’m doing a really great job at this whole book reviewing thing.

Although, in my defense, I also haven’t been reading as much lately because…



It’s old news already, but I finally got through all eight episodes and… that LAST EPISODE THOUGH. Even though I enjoyed watching Season 3, I didn’t feel the same emotional connection like I did with the other ones, and in most definitely in comparison to the reactions online 🤣 Then that last episode happened, and it almost made me cry. Which says something, because it’s hard to make me cry when it comes to any entertainment media, so good job on that accomplishment Stranger Things 🤣🤣


Well, that’s about all I’ve got for today, I’ll see what I’ll whip up on Friday, cause as of right now, I have no idea 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Have a good week guys, and I’ll see you with some type of post on Friday!!
