Weekly Update | June 22-28, 2020

Good morning everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. Today I’m going to be updating you all on what I did this past week as well as what I’m planning to do this coming week. You will be getting a sneak peek at my July TBR, so that’s exciting!

But I hope you all enjoy this post because there won’t be many books mentioned in my wrap up!

Let’s just get right into it.


So, like I said I didn’t do too much reading over this last week, but I will share what I did read. As always, I did not post any reviews on Instagram. But I’ll get there.

(So, I didn’t think that I read a lot this week. Then I actually looked at all the books I read this week and, um, I lied…)

I’m not going to go in detail about my thoughts, but I’ll share some stats and my rating breakdown for you all!

Alright, so besides the fact that I read more books that I honestly thought that I did, I binged a few Kdramas over this week. Welllllll…. more like over the last couple of days. These are all on Netflix, by the way.

Love Alarm

So, I watched the first season of this K-drama in one sitting. And. I’m. So. Mad. How dare they leave off with that cliffhanger!!!

This follows a world in the future where an app is created that will tell you if someone within 10 meters loves you. I absolutely loved this show and I’m so glad there is going to be a new season of this because I NEED more.

My First First Love

This is just a cliche love triangle type story (at least, I think that’s how it’s going to end up. The two characters on the left and the character in white end up moving in with the guy to the far right. The girl in white has been best friends with the guy on the right since they were children (he’s friends with everyone in the photo). She ends up meeting the guy in the middle and feelings start to bloom.

I love this show so far, but I’m only on episode 6 of season 1! I can’t wait to continue watching this one and see what I think of the rest of this season and next season!

My Secret Romance

So, I started watching this a long time ago, but I ended up watching a couple more episodes.

This is about a woman who had a one night stand and then hoped to never see him again. Then she ends up working for him. (I believe there’s more, but that’s really all I can remember off-hand)

Now let’s talk about my plans for this week!!

So, let’s start with the Kdramas I want to watch besides finishing the two I mentioned earlier. And I’m going to let you all choose what I watch next! I’ll share two to four (I’m indecisive! Leave me be!) Just comment with whichever one you want me to watch!

Bring It On, Ghost

This book follows a guy who can see ghosts who teams up with a ghost to hunt down bad spirits.

When the Camellia Blooms

This one is about a single mother finding love again and crushing stigmas around her life.

Clean With Passion for Now

This tells the romance between someone with extreme germaphobia and someone who loves to clean to the point of her owning her own cleaning company.

The Undateables

This follows the romance between a guy who refuses to love and a woman who gave up on love as they help other people find love.

I’m excited for all four of these, so I don’t know which I should watch first! So make sure you all vote in the comments.


As for books, I don’t really have too many reading plans, but let’s talk about them! I currently only will be sharing the books I’m currently reading because my only goal for the rest of the month is to finish these, even though I don’t think I will.

But keep an eye out for my July TBR for what books I plan on reading in July. I’ll definitely be working on those after finishing these.


And that’s it everyone! I hope you all enjoyed this post and I’ll see you all in the next one!

My name is Amanda! I'm 25 years old with one son, Alex. He's my world and my everything. I have my Bachelor's degree in English and Creative Writing. I run the Instagram @acourtofbooksandlove, the A Court of Books and Love blog and YouTube. I hope to one day help indie authors/lesser known authors work to spread their name and get their book to where they want it to be and ready for the public's eyes. If you're an indie author, feel free to email me to see if I'm interested in your novel (whether it's already published or not). I mainly read romance, YA fantasy, and YA contemporary. When emailing, please provide a copy of the novel or a link to where I can find it. For business inquires, email me at: acourtofbooksandlove@gmail.com
