These are my obsessions…….

aka remember that time I asked you to hold me accountable? Ha!


I’m such a flop, I sweaaaar!



I’ve been distracted all month long, by things that are not books. I’ve betrayed my first love…


My latest obsessions have been:


  • Black Lightning – This show has me all in my feelings, the actors are wonderful to look at, and the action is the icing on top. If you haven’t seen this Netflix/CW masterpiece yet, I suggest you get on that.

Would recommend for: fans of Marvel superheroes (especially Luke Cage and Jessica Jones) or anyone out for a little (lot) bit of eye candy.


  • Watching Twitch streams – This one goes hand in hand with watching YouTube gameplay. It’s oftentimes soothing to have on while I clean or just don’t want to think about real life too hard.

Would recommend for: anyone looking for background noise while they do something else.


  • Playing The Sims 4 (which I’ve found a renewed love for) – Usually what would happen is that I would watch Simmers playing the game and I’d become immediately inspired to create some fun builds of my own.

Would recommend for: anyone looking for low commitment fun that somehow sucks hours of your life without your noticing.


  • An Android game called My Shelf – Similar to a longstanding game called Episodes/Choices, this is a story based game that has all of the drama, and every option you choose affects the outcome for your character.

Would recommend for: more mindless clicking with an aside of messy, messy drama.


Aside from that, this month I’ve been spending lots of time with family. Noone can really begrudge me this one right? I mean, come on!


Q: What have you been obsessed with lately?


See you on Monday!

Hold me accountable!

You guys,


I have the biggest review backlog that I’ve ever had, and yet I cannot find it in myself to finish the books let alone write the review. What’s worse, some of the books I haven’t even started! And it’s nothing against the books either, it’s all on me this time.


How do I make myself sit down and get these reviews done when there are so many amazing new releases or favorites to reread…and new movies and tv shows and…gah!


So…here’s what I’m asking of you, every time you see me on twitter (deereadsforfood) or insta (deereadsforfood) or goodreads (Dee Dee deereadsforfood) doing anything other than updating progress ask me how my review backlog is going. Please?


Maybe the added pressure might help.




How do you all cope with reading when there are so many distractions around?
