One Day at a Time

Right now I’m taking a financial accounting class that’s kicking my ass. Just thinking about it makes my head spin. To cope, I’ve been reading a lot of fiction. I’ve also been clinging to other things that make me happy, like my favorite coffee.

Here’s what I’m currently obsessed with!


I stopped using Goodreads, but I’m still reading. In January I read all three books in Tarryn Fisher’s Love Me with Lies series, then immediately devoured Mud Vein. I’d rather be held prisoner in a house in the middle of nowhere than do any more accounting. 😂

You think I’m kidding.

In all seriousness, though, I loved all four of those books. I didn’t want Olivia and Caleb’s story to end. I could’ve happily read another book about them destroying each other. They put the fun in dysfunctional.

Right now I’m reading The Weight of Life by Whitney Barbetti. It’s less dark than the last four books I read, but still deals with some heavy issues. You’d think I’d read happier books right now, considering how accounting makes me feel.



I’ve been coming out of my music rut. Lately my rotation consists of MILCK’s This Is Not The End EP, my old standbys Lungs and Ceremonials, and one of my favorite albums of all time.

TV & Movies

I haven’t had a whole lot of time for Netflix lately, but I did start the new season of Netflix’s One Day at a Time. Not only does this show actually make me laugh out loud, but it tackles real and relevant issues.

I live for the moments when Rita Moreno throws aside the curtains and makes her grand entrances. Her one-liners crack me up!

I also recently watched Unrest, a documentary about chronic illness. (See my review here.)

What I’m Waiting On

This mod to end so I never have to look at accounting things again.

There are 12 days left ’til the An Unexpected Romance anthology comes out, which includes The Key to 19B—AKA J.C. Hannigan’s novella that I’m dying to read. Let me do the math for you: woman in unhappy marriage + hot guy next door = Liz bait.

There are also four other novellas in the anthology, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Pre-order here for only $0.99!

  1. What made you stop using goodreads? I’m just curious. I like to use it to catelog the books I’ve read since I have several friends that ask for recommendations and I am forever forgetting what I read! (Seriously I need to like up my ginkgo or something for memory)

    I love One Day at a Time. I am impatiently waiting to watch more episodes since it’s a show I watch with Vahid and he’s painfully slow at watching shows. It’s such a smartly written show with all the feels.

    Here’s to February and finishing your accounting class!!

    1. In a nutshell, I’d been debating stopping for years but the straw that broke my back was when they killed giveaways by adding a hefty price tag. I’m still adding books to my To Read shelves, but I’m no longer keeping track of what I’ve read or leaving reviews. And I’m definitely not paying $60 just to post a giveaway.

      It really is! I’m so in love with it. If Netflix ever axes it, I’m throwing chairs.
